    Superb

    Nice room, comfortable bed, clean, central, value-for-money, free parking - stayed in the historical room :)

    Building is kinda ugly, but so are many of Reykjavik's newer buildings. Internet charge introduced recently, relatively expensive (~USD10/day)

    Easy to find, breakfast excellent, room had a great view.

    Very good

    Location the most. And the type of the room, historical one. However it did not have nothing to do with the style of the hotel, mordern and convenient

    Superb

    Very friendly staff and helpful in planning for day trips. Good breakfast items, but could use more sitting room.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Good location, free parking and wifi (my room was well covered). Reasonable variety in breakfast. Very quiet room and comfortable. Very good value for money.

    The room was small, but it didn't bother since I was most of the time out. The free parking tends to be full, at least in summer. The bathroom looked awkward, as there was no shower cabin.

    Exceptional

    Value for money in the heart of Reychevik. Clean and comfortable with a good location. Good breakfasts and an open invitation to make a sandwich for luch or picnics. room smallish but suited us both for the 3 nights we were there

    Great staff, excellent value for money, not far from the city centre

    Superb

    Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms good location - easy to get to city centre and to harbour area. I also enjoyed the natural water supply - hot water for the showers with a slight smell of eggs! (Didn't bother me and felt 'healthy!) and ice cold water - fresh and lovely to drink!

    They should sort out the TV! A randon set of uninteresting channels was available. A standard set of channels with a tv guide in the room would be good. They shoulld aslo ditch the fundamentalist religious channel - makes you feel like the Fosshotel chain might be run by fundamentalists - if this was the case I would not stay there! A fridge in the room would also be nice!

    Guest rating

    We had really big problems to use our credit cards to pay the room, because their technology was actually ancient, and the personal was very unkind snd unproffesional. In adition they forced us to pey at chek in, what is very unusual even at iceland, threating us to keep our passports. The hotel is old, and the bathrooms were not in minimun acceptable conditions. Even you have to pay for internet, when in iceland even the smallest guesthouses offer that service for free. A very disappointing experience

    Fabulous

    Staff were very helpful and accommodating, rooms clean, good location (near the sea, and at the start of the main shopping strip)

  • 8.4
    Superb

    The staff was very fiendly and helpfull. I had contacted the hotel and asked for a room with a sea view and it was waiting for us when we arrived. The location is perfect close to the main street, shopping and restaurants. We visited in June with midnight sub however the curtains closed out all lights so no problems with sleep.

    On Saturday night there was some noise from the street (we sleep with open windows).

    Superb

    Excellent location - 5 mins walk to main shopping street, same to reach the harbour walkway.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The hotel is very conveniently placed for the city centre, close enough to be within walking distance but positioned so there was no disturbance from late night revellers. The staff were all very helpfull and all those we dealt with spoke good English. Our room, though basic, was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a particular feature. There being a wide selection of choices available daily.

    For an extended stay the amount of storage space in the room was limited.
