We had a short stay, but the location, facility, and staff were all great. Definitely enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. I’m looking forward to coming back.

Comfortable beds in a cool hotel and a great central location. Very quiet and staff all very helpful. Sauna was fantastic and so clean. Only mark down is that the rooms get very warm in the summer, understandably no air conditioning, but meant it was difficult to sleep.

This hotel has a great location, close to everything you may need and want to see in Reykjavik. Easy to get to and from as well. Cool look with an industrial look, rooms are modern and comfortable with everything you may need. A cool bakery, bar an restaurant downstairs as well. Plus for a self service luggage storage. We didn't have the time to try the gym or the sauna. Friendly and helpfull staff, and very clean. Quiet location even if it is in the middle of the city.

We arrived pretty exhausted after our overnight flight to Reykjavik. Thankfully we were able to check in to the Exeter in the morning...really helpful bonus! We got a comfortable room with great black out curtains. What made it a really Great hotel stay was thanks to the helpful and friendly desk staff! Dave offered to helped us when our Hertz pick up didn't arrive to pick us up from the lobby....and we couldn't reach the Hertz office by phone. He called for us and found out when the driver would be arriving. But best of all, he gave us coupons for free donuts at the in-hotel bakery! They were delicious...and it was so sweet of Dave to help us.
