The Hotel Orkin is a basic hotel but it's clean and lovely. Staff are friendly (except for the evening receptionist!) and very helpful. Our room looked out onto the mountains and was of a reasonable size bit it was clean and functional. Breakfast was plentiful and nice and the coffee and cake throughout the day was very welcome ! We are planning to go back later this year so it must be good !

Our family of 5 stayed in Hotel Orkin last week .The hotel is true to the pictures. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel 10 min walk to city centre. A few resturants closeby that arent too expensive..Great choice for breakfast and tea and coffee all day long was greatly appreciated. I better not forget to mentoin the cake from 5 pm , which was a pleasant surprise to come back to every evening.
We would stay here again.

Stayed at Hotel Orkin with 4 female friends for 3 nights returning yesterday. It was cheap and cheerful. It reminded me of a upmarket youth hostel but was a fabulous hotel. It was extremely clean albeit bit dated. The staff were superb. Very helpful when a tour did not appear and always happy to provide cake, coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc which was free of charge.

We were leaving at 3am for our flight and the staff provided us with 2 filled rolls each for our journey. This was much appreciated. Nothing was too much for any of the staff. They were polite helpful and very processional.

We had a room for 5. Two of which slept on the lower floor of room with 2 single beds and a further 3 beds were on the mezannine level. The beds were very comfortable and bedding was fresh and exceptionally clean.

If you are looking for an upmarket hotel then Orkin not what I would recommend, however I would highly recommend it as a hotel for using as a base. Outside our room was a settee on the landing which was ideal for when we were all wished to sit and socialise together.

The breakfast was good. A variety of hams cheese and fresh rolls. Cereals and fruit were also provided along with hot and cold drinks. Perfect start to the day.

The cake that was available in late afternoon, was delicious and on arriving back to hotel at night we were provided with more.

This hotel is a ten to 15 minute walk from the town centre and it's an easy walk.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel with family last month, pretty close to the centre and the receptionist was lovely and helpful. Unlimited tea, coffee and cake at the reception so handy as it was so cold outside! Room was also a decent size. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: January 2018

We used hotel orkin as our base, whilst exploring Iceland on various tours. It’s bout a 10-15mins stroll in to the centre and the hotel is on the list for tours pick up and drop off. The staff were all nice and pleasant but especially a lady with dark hair who welcome us as we arrived, she was really nice. The breakfast was a continental breakfast, so ok but not lots of choice. The furniture etc is a little dated but the room size was fine. As a base to sleep and shower while Your in Iceland it’s fine. I would stay again
