The room was just what I needed for myself, a bed and bathroom. I am 5'6" tall and the single bed was a good size, if you are really tall, you may want to check with the hotel for bigger room or bed. There are many places to walk from it, including the wharf. Staff was very helpful. The shuttle...

great location. This hotel is in the heart of the city. You are right in the middle of the action. The hotel was nice. Nothing too fancy, but the location alone makes up for any shortcomings. Prepare to sleep with ear plugs. It is loud with a bar feet away across the street.

After 10 nights sleeping under the stars in the Icelandic wilderness, staying here for one night completely rejuvenated me. The staff was warm and accommodating, the shower was incredible and the bed was ultra comfortable.

Location great for walking and dining. Very noisy outside during the late night hours. Staff were exceptional with their assistance to us. Rooms were outdated and needed some very basic furniture updates.
