The initial impression of this hotel from the outside was not favourable – but got worse once we stepped inside. The hotel is basic – very basic. The breakfast room (the only meal available) was more akin to a trucker’s diner or one of those rooms in a hostel that they let you eat your take-away in. The stairs leading...

Ok so this place isn't the ritz or the Hilton. It's a 3* hotel which meets the needs of anyone working to a budget. The place could do with a bit of smartening up but it's perfectly practical for somewhere to get your head down, have a shower and get breakfast before venturing into Reykjavik! It's location is only 2...

The hotel is a budget one and is good if you just need a place to sleep. Its simple, comfortable , has wifi, great location, provides breakfast and that's it. The reception is not manned all the time and there is no room service. Its basic and that is reflected in the price.

We have just returned from our stay at the Metropolitan hotel. I have stayed in many budget 3* hotels before but when I arrived here I wanted to cry! the outside impression is dated/run down. When we arrived the guy on reception was friendly enough and told us we could choose from a 'twin room' which was bigger, or a...

This place needs to get a bit more credit than it’s being given. I stayed for 5 nights in September and got exactly what I expected; a cheap and functional base to eat and sleep between explorations of Iceland. Cons – The light in the room didn’t work but didn’t matter as light from bathroom covered for both. It was...

The room was small as expected, but the bathroom was ridiculous. the toilet and sink were in the shower, only separated by a curtain. We would have left except we booked through Agoda and could not cancel. The worst part of all was the unfriendly greeting we received. this was our first time in Iceland and the young man at...

The room is spartan but clean; the overhead light does not work so we report it. It is not fixed during our four night stay. Unlike a hostel, the bathroom is all ours even though there is no lip on the shower so that entire room can easily flood. Buffet breakfast is included and consists of toast, cold cuts, cheese,...

Having read the bad reviews which I must have missed when booking, I can only agree with most of them. Having arrived at 2am very tired we were informed with no apology that there was a burst pipe in our room so we were to go to other accommodation for the night and return the next day when our room...
