The capital inn is a great budget hotel. The location is so close to the city centre by car and walkable to some attractions. The staff were helpful and gave you handy travel tips when checking in. The kitchen and common area is very convienient especially for self catering as this country is extremely expensive. Shared bathroom facilities were surprisingly...

Found this accommodation to be very satisfactory for fairly budget accommodation. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. No cooked option but a good choice all the same. Be aware that this hotel is not near the centre and you will need the use of a car or a taxi. If you get the bus from the...

The Capital Inn is quiet basic but neat, clean and practical. We stayed in a double room with en-suite. Bed and pillows were really comfortable and fresh towels were provided. If you are on B&B, help yourself to breakfast between 7:30-10:30am. You can also have a really good dinner here between 5:30-9:30pm. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed at the Capital Inn with a friend for 3 nights in March 2017. Easy to book a return Flybus transfer at Keflavik airport for 5000k return. We stayed in a double room with private shower with breakfast included. Breakfast was basic; coffee, tea, juice, cereal, bread, cheese, ham, porridge but was all fine. The room was clean and comfortable....

The location while a bit out of town was probably a 30 minute walk to the city centre. This is the cheapest place in Reykjavik but provides a very hospitable and relaxing stay. The common room is very quiet and all cooking utensils and appliances are available. The people you meet are all very like minded and kind who enjoy...

Very bad experience! Stay away from here: the owner and the staff are very unpleasant person! They advertise 24h reception and it's not true! I sent an email to inform them about my late arrival after the Northern Lights tour and they didn't answer! As I arrived there were no reception: only a telephone to call and someone told me...

This was my first time staying in a hostel and am glad I booked it. The price was great, I had a room with a bed big enough for two, although I had booked for one, which was a bonus. Breakfast was basic, but adequate. Buffet style continental with meats, cheese fruits and cereal. No hot option. The chef was...

Great facilities - the shared bathrooms were nice and clean and roomy - could have done with a separate toilet but there was only one time when I couldn't use it and just used one on a different floor. Towels are provided in the rooms, also hairdryer in the bathroom and shower soaps provided and hand soap in the bedrooms....
