The receptionist Mariko and Lydia went above and beyond to assist us with our frustration with Expedia messing up our excursions. These two ladies assisted us with calling Expedia and booking new reservations through their companies. They were kind, caring and very attentive to our needs. We had a wonderful trip because of all of their help!

The location of the hotel was excellent. you can walk from the bus station and walk to all parts of the city centre. was a little disappointed when we checked in to find out we were in a different building. wasnt aware they had rooms in 2 buildings. so was a little annoying each morning that we had to wrap up as it was snowing just to go down and get breakfast. for me the single beds were very small and every time i would have turned over the duvet would go with me and would end up being cold. i asked for extra blankets but we could only be provided with 1 the bathroom was a little impractical. it was a wet room shower so as soon as someone had had a shower the floor was all wet. so when the only mirror in the room was in the bathroom above the sink you either got wet feet each time you wanted to go to the sick or had to put flip flops on which luckily had packed due to going to blue lagoon. so we had to ask for extra towels just to mop up the floor each day. a mirror in the main room would have been a lot more helpful the breakfast was good. it was also nice that they provided hot drinks in the main lobby area. albeit that was in another building to us again

My room had a great view of the church and statue of Leif Ericsson. The location is great for walking and exploring. Very close to bus stop #8. Staff were very friendly, like most Icelanders! There is no elevator so be prepared to carry luggage up stairs. I left very early in the morning (7:30) so breakfast was a little sparce. This is an old hotel so be prepared for some rustic decor. I went in winter. I'm sure it's better in the summer months. All in all, pretty happy with my choice.

Great location, across from the church and bus stop 8 where FlyBus and tours pick up and drop off. The city is easily walkable from here. The staff was very nice and accommodating, getting me into my room when i arrived early that morning. Of course, that was due to no one being in the room the night before. The heat worked very well in the room, which was much appreciated after walking most of the day in 10F weather. The bathroom took a bit getting used to. I had a single room and the shower, sink and toilet are all connected by a shower curtain. It did take a while for the water to heat up, but once it did it was HOT. All in all, we'll be coming back here at the end of our tour.
