10/10 Exceptional

Greta place to stay. Late about a half hour with the room prep, so I had to wait.

8/10 Very good

Comfortable rooms and convenient location
Originally stayed in room next to elevator. It was very noisy, making it difficult to sleep. Staff were able to change room the next evening, which was a little quieter. Rooms are newly refurbished and very comfortable. Breakfast was included, and had a fantastic variety of hot and cold foods. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Location was on a quiet street, but within close walking distance to centre of town.

4/10 Fair

We booked three room but they though we got two only and gave us special terrible rooms after few calls with manager. Room is small. Toilet is in dirty hostel level. Feeling too upset.

10/10 Exceptional

This is a very cute boutique hotel. The location is perfect. It's about two blocks from the main square in Reykjavik, so it's close enough to be convenient but far enough away that you don't get any noise or crowds. The owners are absolutely lovely and went out of their way to help us with any question we brought to them. We would definitely stay here again the next time we're in Reykjavik.
