Hotel and breakfest were nice but it was situated far away from citycenter, i cannot recommend it. Noisy small airfield nearbuy. The " biggest"shopping center nearbuy. But it was good for short walks around the residential area.

Very basic hotel excellently located just off the main tourist areas in Reykjavik. The hotel was well serviced by all the main tour guide companies. Rooms were small but adequate. Towels were changed once in a four night stay and room service did not stretch to cleaning. Items like shampoo or soaps were not provided. Double bed had a typical...

I was pleasantly surprised when staying here as I had read a number of reviews saying that the rooms were not clean (after I had already booked). The rooms were quite basic, but no more so than other hotels I have stayed at for around the same price, and the room was clean. The location is fantastic, and I would...

Metropolitan is a fine place to stay for a visit to Reykjavik, but it's very no-frills. It's a good base of operations or place to crash if you're going to be out and about all day, but don't expect a luxury experience. On balance I would recommend it for travelers looking for a good value. Pros: - Great location, short...

The hotel was clean but very very basic. Beds comfy. Hotels location is right in the centre of the city. The rooms are very small with a tiny bathroom. Tele, small table but nothing else. No where to get a coffee. Breakfast was expensive for what it was. Cold boiled eggs, toast. Ham and tomatoes. Weak bottled cordials. Warm coffee....

This hotel is very good location wise but it was uncredibly small. Our room was booked as a double room but when we arrived we found that it was no bigger than a small box room. It had a bed and a desk and chair that took up most of the space which left little to absolutley no room to...

I don't understand the negative reviews. My room and bathroom were clean and although small, big enough for me. Lovely and warm. Very quiet. Helpful lady on reception. Great location near to the centre and restaurants. Recommended.

I am currently staying at the hotel and do not have a bad word to say! Yes it's not the most amazing hotel but for what u pay its perfect, it's really quiet and literally seconds away from the main centre. The room is always lovely and warm and the guy at reception is extremely helpful. We arrived 2hours before...

Great place to be if you are visiting Reykjavik as it's almost in the center of downtown. Although I saw few comments about room or bathroom not been clean but I experienced a very clean room & bathroom. Stayed in room 301. Reception is there from 8am to 8pm and the person is very helpful. Good place to stay if...

Room was really dirty, hairs in the beds, grimy floor and the bathroom was grim. The desk had some old envelops and coins in the drawer, presumably from the last occupants. Towels were thin and stained. Toilet roll holder had rusted and was hanging off the wall. Walls are covered in scuffs and marks and the bedside lamps didn't work....
