This hotel was perfect for us in every way. The booking process was easy. We had a couple of questions prior to our arrival, which they answered promptly. Upon arrival, we were immediately checked in by a friendly front desk staff person, who personally took us to our room. Plus, she gave us some very helpful advice. The room was perfect. We had two balconies, one off the living area which overlooked the courtyard and one off the bedroom. The room was very clean and had a great layout. There was a table with seating for four, comfortable pullout couch, small refrigerator, dishwasher, small stovetop, ample drawer and storage space, as well as necessary cooking items if you wanted to prepare your own meal. The bed in the bedroom area was also very comfortable. They provided earplugs by the bedside, but we did not need them. In addition, the hotel was very well situated for exploring Reykjavik. I would gladly stay at this hotel again. It was wonderful!

I was so impressed by the customer service at this hotel. We went to Iceland on a trip with friends and the manager went out of his way to make our trip special. Great location-- walking distance to all you want to see. Please give them a try-- you will not be disappointed!!!!

After reading the great reviews, we booked a room here on the first leg of our honeymoon. The hotel did not disappoint. Nice room in a great location, we walked everywhere and caught tours from about 100 meters down the street. The breakfast basket is also amazing. Like other reviewers have said, there’s enough for breakfast and for lunch later, which saves you from having to eat out at restaurants (Reykjavik is pretty expensive). Rooms were also laid out well and stocked, with a fair measure of coffee, dishes, milk, juices, and even built-in USB ports for charging devices (so you didn’t always need a converter). Definitely recommend!

We checked in at hotel but our room was at the residence which is around 30 meters down the street. Nice area of town although bars, graffiti and broken beer bottles on the sidewalk seem to be a problem. Maybe more police patrol and harsher laws on graffiti would help make this touristy area a more pleasant place for families and attract more tourism.

We had two separate one night stays here. Both studios were clean, comfortable and well equipped. The complimentary milk, juice, tea/coffee and cornflakes were very welcome. The front desk staff were all excellent. Our first room was right next to the Porto wine bar but we were untroubled by noise. Our second room was in a block a few minutes walk away which was either newly built or newly refurbished and suffered from poor sound insulation. The little kitchens in both were very well equipped and TV/wifi worked well.
The second room had a couple of odd design flaws. Firstly the room safe was located on top of a high shelf. Even standing on a chair it was too high for me to reach and completely unsuitable for a frail or disabled person. My husband is relatively tall and even he had to stand on a chair. Secondly the shelf with the towels and the towel rail were directly above the toilet which didn't seem too hygienic.
Overall we were very happy with this hotel and feel we didn't get the opportunity to properly use the facilities as we had two such short stays. For a longer stay the kitchen would be really useful and I would definitely rebook if we were to return.
