Great Hotel in a fab location!
We had a really lovely stay. It was a great base for our trip to Iceland. The decor was fab - really modern and cosy. We loved having the little kitchenette for making breakfasts before we headed out on a day exploring!

Home away from home!
Great value for the price! The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and well-equipped. It definitely has the "hygge" touch to it, with tasteful minimal furnitures, warm blankets, soft cushions and pillows and nice lighting options. My room was located on the bottom floor and because the house is located on a very quiet street, the ground level didn't cause any trouble in terms of noise from the street - but I'd recommend higher floor rooms for privacy. Hotel in general was very quiet also. The fridge was occasionally making a high-pitch noise, like the fridges do, but having the kitchenette in the room was a very nice touch and it was useful. The people working at the reception - and I've encountered with at least 4 different people - were all very friendly and helpful and made my stay pleasant. I would especially like to thank the night receptionists with whom I had a pleasant midnight chat every evening when I returned. It was nicely located for Iceland Airwaves attending purpose, which takes place in centrally located venues. I'd definitely stay there again when I'm back in Reykjavik!

Great location
Perfect location in centre of Reykjavík. Easy access to lots of restaurants within 5 minutes walk for breakfast and dinner. Lovely , clean and very well presented. Useful kitchen with tea and coffee provided. Bus stop 14 5 minutes walk down the hill. Had a room with two single beds and a sofa bed. Good for family of four.

Perfect location, perfect size
The apartment we stayed at was clean, comfortable and perfect for our needs. Loved the spacious shower, and the kitchen came in very handy to make our own breakfast instead of eating out. The location is central, and within walking distance of all major downtown attractions. Service was friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend.

Great hotel in Reykjavik!
Good location in center of Reykjavik and in close proximity of restaurants, bars and attractions. We had a 3-person room on the ground floor, which was spacious with good beds and decent bathroom. Floors were a bit cold. The apartment had a kitchen, refrigerator and proper Danish coffee pot! Nice!

Cool Nordic apartments
Great apartment, cool decor, good location and friendly staff - only minor problem was the cleaners left the windows open so on our arrival the room was freezing... wasn’t too much of an issue tho! Great start to our adventure
