Good central basic hotel

Posted 01-Mar-2015
Pros: Food was okay, lots of veg, little or no meat.
Cons: Weather was very bad when there, tv left a lot to be desired, very small screen, move more than five feet away ... Usless
Location: Out of central area, not a lot to do ... Walk along the shore front.
Basic hotel, basic menu, basic facilities but okay for the money. Very busy, so must be doing something right.

Nice and handy

Posted 11-Feb-2015
Cons: No complimentary tea or coffee in room. Expensive to add wifi - not included. Dinner was OK but not fantastic for the price.
Location: Just an overnight stop before we headed to the south of Iceland.
Couldn't find reservation on arrival and had to send copy of Expedia email to desk clerk to prove booking. Once found, all good. Most of customer contact staff speak good English.

Lovely hotel great for a weekend get away.

Posted 19-Jan-2015
Great hotel perfect for getting to places. Slight walk to town but a lovely walk all the same. I think only thing that let it down was not enough towels (but I'm sure you could ask for more) and no tea and coffee in the room. Perfect place to stay otherwise.

Well positioned hotel, short walk from city centre

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Pros: Good position for activities, city access and ease of getting around. Quite a nice out-look from the coastal facing rooms.
Cons: Larger rooms - standard rooms are too small for two people and their bags, storage needed! Drinks tray and more varied meals would be good.
Location: City centre attractions, shopping, restaurants, Old Harbour area for trips, tourist info. very helpful, geo-thermal pools, phallilogical museum!
Hotel room was very small, with little storage. It was very basic with uncarpetted floor, no drinks-making facility in room. The shower room was small and the bathroom fittings were difficult to use as they were squeezed into an inappropriately small space. There was an old television which didn't work. Breakfast was adequate but the evening 'salad bar' which incurred an additional charge, was barely any different to that offered in the morning at breakfast, along with a couple of soup options which were repeated every other day. There was never enough white toasting bread in the morning. The reception staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, and they all gave good local knowledge and advice about the city and things to do. Domestic staff were also very accommodating, replenishing items in good time and they were quick to bring extra pillows when a request was made. The hotel was a 'budget hotel' and served it's purpose for us for the week, but a few extra things like the drinks tray would make such a difference, especially since budget hotel clients may be less able to pay for expensive drinks from the bar during the day. The hotel's position was good, being close to the city centre and sea front, and was served by the local tour operators. Swimming pools were close by, shopping and good restaurants were within walking distance. Internet access was ok but one of the computers was poorly set up for ease of use - resolution properties were not set.

Far away from city center. Charges for wifi. The breakfast is a joke.

Für ein paar Nächte super

Posted 30-Nov-2014
Wir nutzten das Hotel für eine Nacht und dafür ist es inkl Frühstück bei dem Preis perfekt. Die Lage ist gut, Parkplätze kostenlos und in 15min zu Fuß ist man in der Laugavegur (Restaurants, Bars, Shopping). Nachteil: kein gratis WLAN

Renovera och ljudisolera

Posted 01-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
Badrummet stank kloak som spred sig i hela rummet. Dåligt utbud av teve kanaler. +++till den trevliga frukostvärdinnan på sjunde våningen samt till övrig personal. kommer inte att bo där fler gånger eftersom det var det sämsta hotell jag bott på.

Good budget option: very small rooms but decent.

Posted 26-Sep-2014
Good option on a budget. A 15 min walk into the centre, decent breakfast spread (but no hot food), rooms are small but reasonably well provisioned.
