    • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

    When looking for a place to stay in Iceland, I read several reviews before booking this property. When I arrived, I was treated to complimentary coffee and they held my luggage until check in. When we arrived in our room, it was cozy, clean, warm, spacious and had every amenity possible. The bed was amazingly comfortable, almost more comfortable than my bed at home. My room had a bath tub which I thoroughly enjoyed!! Room 302 if you are curious... We had breakfast included and were so happy to be greeted each morning with a reserved table for four and a hot breakfast to get our day started. Breakfast was a choice of four hot entrees along with fruit, yogurt, breads, juice and coffee prepared fresh no sitting out buffet style. We ended each day with drinks at the very same spot where we had breakfast. The owner sat with us at least 2 of our 4 nights to chat and tell us about himself! The staff at the front desk helped coordinate a last minute excursion which was exactly what we had hoped for. I cannot say enough positive. This hotel is close to everything so we did not need or want a car. It is traditional so you get a true feel for Icelandic structures. My only negative is I wish I could have stayed longer. Oh well, perhaps next time.

    Great location, no air conditioner would be needed here, street parking nearby and garage (pay) also nearby. Lovely spacious 2 room apartment with 2 burner cooktop, fridge, no freezer, dishes, cookware, toaster, electric kettle, Keurig style coffee and cups, cocoa and tea bags (not decaf), etc. They supply corn flakes, juice and milk! Breakfast or breakfast basket was available, but there are nearby grocery stores. Reception 24/7. Apartments are in different locations from reception. I was thinking that the curtains would let in sunlight during the long summer daylight hours. It wasn’t a problem in November.

    We rented a 3 bedroom. Clean and spacious. Nice linens and towels. Fully equipped kitchen and large living space with daily cleaning. The hotel is perfectly located to both town and harbor area. Although we were close to many restaurants and shops, it was a quiet location. All staff was friendly and willing to help. Would return again.

    Our room was large, clean, with a fully equipped kitchen. The shower was excellent and the toiletries were L’Occitaine! It was in a new property down the street from the main building.
