    5/5 Excellent

    Great staff, the rooms are cozy and clean, hotel position is excellent in downtown Reykjavik.

    5/5 Excellent

    The property was ideally situated for us. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the fact that there were cooking facilities in the room was a plus as we had a very fussy eater with us. All in all we had a very pleasurable stay, thank you.

    5/5 Excellent

    Hotel was great location in heart of Reykjavík and close to bus stop which picked up for all the tours. Staff could not have been more helpful. We stayed in executive suite which has 2 balconies, 2 bedrooms, large bathroom and dining area. For continental Breakfast plenty of choice and even made us a takeaway one when we left at 4am for airport.

    5/5 Excellent

    We loved that the hotel was so historical and that within their hotel amenities booklet, they outline the building's history, the meaning behind the name of each room and the photography in each room that was detailed by the local artist.

    Kvosin is incredible! Location The location of Kvosin is very central and close to restaurants (within 100 metres), shopping (within 100 metres), the harbour (within 10 minutes) etc. Can't fault the location. Some reviews talk about the noise from the cathedral bells. Its nothing major. It's something you get used to and certainly won't keep you awake! Customer Service The team at Kvosin are efficient, friendly and incredibly helpful. For example, they'd make an effort to talk with you and our little 2 year old. They helped with bedding for sofa bed. They recommended places to eat. They gave great advice about parking etc. Really dedicated team! Food & Drink The breakfast is wonderful! Its continental breakfast with everything you could possibly need. Always fresh and efficient service. Happy Hour in the bar is great and the prices are very reasonable at this time (considering how expensive Reykjavik is!) The Room The room was smart, cool and super comfy! Had a TV and a Kitchenette (executive apartment room). A fantastic base for our holiday! Parking The parking is expensive (about £17 per day in front of the hotel). This is however NOTHING to do with the hotel, its the council. If you spend a full day out, there won't be a charge as we left before 9am and returned after 6pm. Parking charges are between 9am-6pm. Overall We felt the hotel was excellent value for money, central located, comfortable and friendly and would recommend to all. Cracking 4 nights in Reykjavik
