Overpriced tourist hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 20, 2008

Compare to a 3 star rating, this is definetly not a 3 star plus hotel. During summer time when a lot of people are in hotel, the breakfast room is chaotic and staff seems confused and not motivated. Their motto is "Friendlier around Iceland" but that is most likely because they have looked away from creating a nice atomsphere for guests and decided to focus on underpaid foreigners to work for them.
But luckily for the hotel the staff is nice, but obviously they do not stop long as they seem to be badly trained.

Rooms are as diffrent as they are many, so you can be lucky and unlucky, depending on what room they allocate you. Like most things not everything is bad, and this is in fact a nice apartment hotel, which makes it a very good choice for families, especially the location 5 min walk to downtown but still not too close so you dont hear a sound while sleeping, the view if you get so lucky to get a ocean view is amazing and when they turn on the (Yoko Ono peace tower) you get the best view the city has to offer over it.
Note that beds are a lot better in "antique" rooms that hotel offers, other mattress were just very soft and not comfortable to sleep on. You also may not like showercabs as water is all over after taking shower.

Notice that when you arrive in Iceland and take the Flybus from Keflavik to Reykjavik you just tell the driver which hotel you are staying at and they will drive you to the hotel door, also you can get a pickup according to your flight to the hotel. (Does not apply to charter flights)

Unique Quality: Location and spectacular view from ocean view rooms.

Directions: About 5 min walk from main city bus terminal, on a side street from Laugarvegurinn main shopping street.
