Very basic room. We booked a double but got two single beds pushed together with two single quilts. The bathroom needed refurbished and the glass shower screen was filthy. The veneer around the bottom of the beds was flaking off. Staff are really miserable and don’t even make eye contact. Especially in the Sky bar where a young Spanish waitress never once cracked a smile. Breakfast time is chaotic as they use the Sky bar and everything is spread out along both bars. NOT value for money and a 3 star hotel at best

The hotel staff are friendly and the room was clean with a comfortable bed. The breakfast, served on the 8th floor in the Sky bar was delicious. Plenty of different choices, ranging from cooked food to pastries. The view from the Sky bar is outstanding, weather permitting.😉

Excellent hotel, great location for all the city's sights and eateries, 5mins and you are into the main aspects of the city with a walk along the harbour only 5mns in the opposite direction. Breakfast was ample and a decent selection of hot and cold drinks and food with fruit and pastries. Rooms were clean and tidy and large enough for 3 to share.

Rooms clean, if a little compact, great breakfast. No where to dry items in room. Room windows very dirty so I couldn't see the sea and mountain view very well. Really good location for all aspects of the city. With harbour, downtown and rainbow road all within 20 min walk

Overlooking the concert hall, the bay and the mountains across it, less than 10 minutes walk to the harbour, the main shopping/restaurant area and the City Pond, about 20 minutes to the cathedral...couldn't be better located! Our room was small but clean, tidy and perfectly adequate, bed was very comfortable, duvet lovely and warm, decent range/choice for breakfast. All of the staff we had contact with were friendly and welcoming.

The hotel is located opposite Harpa, neighboring the sea. Beautiful mountain view from breakfast room. Staff is very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms are very small and have no wardrobe, just a shelf, not enough room for 2 adults to store their winter clothes (you need bulky stuff in February, believe me). No place to leave the empty bags. Very small bathroom. Breakfast was the same each day (we stayed 7 nights and it got boring).

Amazing hotel, amazing staff that went above and beyond to help us. Didn’t want to leave! Close to everything you need, beautiful city. The sky bar has amazing views of the mountains.

Had a lovely stay at this central hotel. Very nice staff on reception and throughout the hotel. Quiet, peaceful, and the room was more than adequate for our needs. Gray breakfast and the flapjacks are terrific! Would certainly stay here again.

Allowed us to walk around Reykjavik straight from hotel. Easy to spot and great views of harbour. The breakfast from the sky bar was great and the evening g drinks reasonably priced for Iceland. A good base for trips with bus stops over the road. Friendly staff and rooms ready for arrival.
