    5/5 Excellent

    Overall, this was a very nice visit. The location, friendly & helpful staff & cozy atmosphere, along with the reasonable price, make this a top choice. There can be more helpful information regarding parking, which is at best- luck of the draw. If a space is found, it is basically $13.50 a day or $1.50 an hour. Parking at the nearby church is free, but quite competitive. Leaving midday & returning in the evening is best to secure a free parking slot. Most of the day tourists will occupy the spaces. Everything one would want in the city is only minutes away. The bed was uber comfy & the in room entertainment was sufficient. I was there to be out and about. The adjacent restaurant is a visit worth taking & the staff went above & beyond to make my "red beer" experience most excellent! Get the French onion soup! Smoking is outside & tables & chairs are available. A supermarket with reasonable prices is within walking distance. I would stay here again!! The back of the house staff was nice & always kept my room neat & clean & not intrusive. The front of the house staff were equally nice & helpful. The following is a shout out to those making my stay an enjoyable & welcome trip: Silla, Agnes, Christian, Gunner, Agust, and Csaba. Takk!!

    Not so sure about those stars

    So, the service at the hotel is fabulous, and the in-hotel restaurant is excellent. The location is terrific--right in the center and an easy walk to lots of places. The hotel is clean, and the mattress was good. There were a few minuses. This is an older hotel, and the room had a very small bathroom with a weird, tiny shower. I struggled to get it on and to adjust the temperature. When I did finally get it working, it was so inadequate that I never actually tried showering again. We bathed at the Blue Lagoon, which is a little ridiculous for what is advertised as a 4-star hotel. The hotel uses old fashioned brass room keys, which are extremely quaint, but perhaps less secure: the doors do not lock automatically when you close them. That said, I would stay here again--it was quaint and convenient with friendly staff.

    4/5 Good

    I love the location and the room was very clean. However if you don't like a soft bed this is not the place for you. The TV did not work well it was fuzzy and only got three channels. The walls are thin and I could hear people snoring in the rooms next to me but I use the sound machine and that helped. Also the water smells like sulfur but I think that's normal for Iceland water when it gets hot I did not like that.
