8/10 Very Good

Nice spot to explore Reykjavik from
Wonderful hotel located just outside of the main downtown area. Nice, roomy accommodations with a great view (if you get the side facing the water), front desk was pleasant, and there was parking right out front. Short walk (10-15 minutes) to main downtown area. The hotel is a little dated and the sound-proofing isn’t that great - you will hear the people moving around in the rooms adjacent and above you. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Great value hotel
Great value hotel. I booked well in advance and secured a great rate. Great location. Breakfast good. Beds comfy. Rooms don’t have wardrobe but there is a hanging rail but only a limited number of hangers so good idea to bring a few extra of your own. Fridge and kettle in room. Great for families. Yes can be considered basic but just what you need when not spending much time in hotel. Supermarket very close by. 15 min easy walk from main BSI bus station.

Good for the Price
The hotel was outdated or at least looked that way in our room and way to our room but what was important to me was cleanliness and location and that’s what this hotel gave! Walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and museums. Beds, sheets and bathroom were clean! I’d recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great location at end of old town, with nice & generously sized rooms, super friendly staff and a great breakfast spread. Plus they have some on-site parking, so it was easy to keep the rental car we needed for the rest of our stay in Iceland.
