The unit was well equipped and clean. The room was for 3 people. It was very comfortable. The kitchen had a 2-burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, and keurig coffeemaker. We had plenty of complimentary coffee, milk and juice. The people working reception were very helpful and friendly. They helped me to register for the COVID test that is required to fly back home, and printed the results for us. I highly recommend this hotel.

We loved the complementary breakfast (both the basket and the restaurant). Very helpful staff and the room was clean, comfortable and attractive. The building (historic Prime Minister's house) was beautiful and we enjoyed the displays that informed us about its history. The chocolates that greeted us each day by the front door were a special treat.

We stayed in a jr suite and it was a perfect size for the three of us. It’s a very comfortable place and a perfect location. The only issue I had was the smell of the bathroom ... it seems like there is something wrong in Iceland with the sewage system. However the hotel staff was very helpful and cleaned when I told them to. The port9 restaurant had an amazing simple breakfast which we enjoyed having every morning.

Great location. Large space. Helpful staff.

This was a large apartment for the city, and as we dropped other guests at various hotels we didn’t chose, I realized that this location was perfectly located in the town center. It is a residence hotel. There is a small front desk with very helpful and accommodating staff. They are pleasant and lovely. We had an issue, no ones fault, and they resolved. This is not a big hotel and don’t expect that. I think for Iceland, it is a better value. It is bigger, with a large bathroom- loccitaine products bountiful- I didn’t use my shampoo or conditioner- and I have thick curls- Then there is the option of the kitchionette. Very helpful in a pricey city. No place for American style cosmetics in bathroom. Next trip to Iceland, I will bring less make up, more gortex. We probably wouldn’t look at another hotel.

Nice Property

Pros: large rooms
Cons: 3rd floor room was a walk up
Location: Very close and convenient to downtown
The property is in a great location. The rooms are part of an historic building and there are 2-3 separate buildings with rooms. The only issue was that 1 room was on the 3rd floor with no elevator. Nicely furnished room, good for families. We found the staff very pleasant to deal with and overall were very happy with our stay

Nice one bedroom very close to center of town

Check in is in the central building. Our building was a short one block walk away. The building appeared recently renovated. The room was spacious and clean. Furniture is Scandinavian efficient. The room had s small kitchen for making food which is useful since restaurants are very expensive. Parking is on the street and payment is by meter. Location is excellent and close to the main tourist attractions.

Fabulous Location in Reykjavik, Comforts of Home

Pros: Kitchenette was great to prepare a meal or two in the room and save a little time and money. Shopped at the grocery a few blocks away.
Stayed for 4 nights and the hotel was terrific. The staff was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. They helped to book several tours and were able to charge them to our room bill. The room was very clean, very well maintained and in the best location - walking to Everything we wanted to do in Reykjavik. The bus stop that you need if you are doing any tours/excursions is right outside across the street! Restaurants all around, shopping too. Walk easily to the harbor. The shower in the room was fantastic. The hotel restaurant was great for breakfast - and they offer a happy hour each evening, but we never got there to enjoy it. They even booked a cab for us to the airport, after explaining the options and prices for cabs versus bus, and let us leave our bags for a few hours after check out so we could more easily roam during our final hours. Highly Recommend the hotel.

The hotel was centrally located and WONDERFUL. Clean, spacious, comfortable, I really loved it. At first they had put us in a room in the ground floor which didn't have much light so I asked for a different room, which they accommodated very quickly. We loved our new room and felt very comfortable there.
