    Superb

    The family room had plenty of room. Within walking distance of the city. Next door restaurant, Harry's and Madonna down the street serve good dinner.

    The pull out sofa bed was a big soft and arrangement of the spiral staircase in the family room was a bit dangerous, I was constantly worried that my 3 year old might bump into it.

    Most of your reception staff were pleasant and helpful.

    The night staff person being sullen.

    Very good

    A friendly atmosphere; all our queries were handled quickly and in an efficient and supportive manner; although we arrived very late - due to a delayed flight from London, we only reached the hotel at 3h30 am - the person on duty was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a quiet location, but the centre is easily reachable on foot

    there was a small hickup: by mistake they forgot to tidy up our room. I believe it was simply an oversight

    Short distance to shopping. Good pickup service for rental cars, tours etc. Breakfast was fair.

    All staff was very helpful, friendly and created a nice atmosphere. However, a majority of the staff gave the impression of being relatively inexperienced.

    Very good

    Location was great being close to everything we wanted but the outlook left a little to be desired. The staff were helpful although not always smiling but nothing seemed too much for them.The room was clean although under the bed was very dusty. We had forgotten to arrange some things and the reception faxed and phoned on our behalf. We liked:- having a lift; being next door to two first class restaurants; the friendly atmosphere; the food (especially breakfast); proximity to the harbour area; reasonably quiet part of town. Altogether a teriffic time. Strongly recommend you stay if you can afford it.

    Outlook wasn't that good but who cares if it's just to sleep at. Noise from the car horns at the garage next door. They beep to get out.

    Fabulous

    Convenience to most attractions in Reykjavik. Friendly staff and cleanliness.

    Room was stuffy and smelled as it only has one small window for ventilation. Breakfast was the same all 7 mornings. A change in the menu would have been welcome.

    Exceptional

    We had a great room, 214 in the front of the hotel, 120 degrees of window. Not that there is any real view. The lady at the front desk was so helpful booking trips and the staff were great, she should be singled out and commended. Breakfast buffet was very good, hotel clean, bed comfortable, couple of places to eat close by. Harry's was great value for money. Would stay there again. There is a grocery store close by and the hotel is close to the shops. The hotel rooms are more European in sytle, don't think that you going to get tonns of space. We had a double delux which was quite spacious for the two of us. We didn't need the pull out bed so used it as a sitting area.

    It is about 15 - 20 minutes walk to down town, We chose the hotel for the available car parking. We found that we did not need a car so staying out of down town was our choice. As it turned ot a good choice.

    Superb

    This hotel could be described as an oasis in reykjavik.Not far away from downtown(about 10-15mins walking),clean,with a very nice buffet for breakfast and free wifi and tv!The staff is very helpful and willing to show you your way around reykjavik.Above all,they care about the interest of the client since it is most probable to send you make some exchange at the bank instead of making it at the hotel reception if the ratio is very different!

    The stinky water!But after all we are in iceland!!!it stinks but it is most potable...

    Fabulous

    The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was very good. The location was very good.

    The bed was two singles pushed together and therefore uncomfortable. The bathroom needed a little bit of TLC i.e the shower door was broken.

    Exceptional

    I enjoyed the general service: from reception hall through to my room and to the breakfast buffet, everything was in perfect order served in a friendly manner. The location is good and staff was ready to help with any questions about locations in Reykjavik. Definitely will stay again and recommend to family and friends.

    Proximity to everything, comfortable, spacious, friendly staff, plus access to La Luna restaurant.

    Breakfast options were limited. Towels and toilettries not regularly replaced...i.e. not consistent with small, med, large towel being put in room, sometimes one or more were missed.
