When we arrived at the hotel we wondered what we were being left at, the hotel was in the middle of an industrial type estate, no other hotels, bars, restaurants etc in the immediate area. We were told our room was in the block next door, no lift, so had to carry the bags upstairs. A concern to us was...

We stayed here on our visit to Iceland and it was very good. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was bigger than I expected comfortable and warm. The room was clean and fresh but a little dated especially in the bathroom. The only fault was it is a 40min walk from the main town and no obvious...

This was the first hotel of our trip and having had a choice of this one or The Cabin we chose arctic comfort from the pictures on the web as this hotel looked homely compared to the cabin which was much more modern and like an IKEA showroom. How wrong were we!! Basic isn't the word nor homely had twin...

Me and my partner stopped in the hotel through the Easter holiday. Whilst the location was okay ( not far from shops restaurants etc). The staff seemed to struggle with their English making communication hard. If I was to return to Iceland I would properly book a different hotel

Hotel staff unhelpful. Room tatty as well as rest of hotel. Hotel only served basic food which was costly. Location was poor no local shops or restaurants. Trips we booked were cancelled due to the weather.

Stayed here for two nights after arriving in Reykjavik. Not too bad a place, fairly basic but clean and quiet. A little out of town but we had hired a car so we were ok. If you are walking it may take a little while to get in. The toilet in the room was a bit peculiar as there wasnt...

Thankfully the city itself made up for the lodgings. Not as comfortable as advertised and being able to see through the clear glass wall into the bathroom from all other parts of the room wasn't at all appropriate. A few miles from the city centre but easy access via the local bus routes, overall just a place to lay your...

The location was some way from restaurants and town centre. We had to drag our suitcases up 2 flights of stairs, so l am assuming that's why the stair treads are worn and dangerous! The breakfast was really poor and not worth the money. It's certainly not a 4* as advertised.

For the money the hotel and its level of comfort is fair value but we were astounded at the level of care and service from the reception staff. We stayed for four nights and experienced four reception staff and they were clearly trained by the same person- a mixture of Basil Fawlty and Catherine Tate's 'Not Bothered' creation. They rarely...

The location is a little like an industrial park but don't let that put you off. The room was comfortable, spacious and warm. With an ensuite and mini fridge (for storing food and drinks) They don't provide much in the way of tea sugar and no milk only powdered creamer but I'm sure if you ask for extra they will...
