What To Know

  • This can be a raucous location on weekend nights

Couldn't have been happier.
Reviewed 3 days ago

Stayed here for two night. First, the location couldn't have been better. Centrally located near shopping and nightlife. The rooms were modern without being pretentious. Shower/sink layout made it easy for two people to get ready easily. Room had tons of amenities including free bottled water. Beds were some of the most comfortable anywhere. We were given a first floor room literally 15 feet from the entrance. I thought it would be too noisy, but we slept fantastic. But by far the best part was the staff. We got to know David and Omar well and at a hotel that anywhere else might seem snotty or impersonal, they made us feel at home. Great job all around and can't wait to come back.

Boutique Hotel in center city
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is a boutique hotel with all of the amenities. The room was comfortable with a view of a park & the harbor. The wi-fi was spotty but we weren't in the room long enough to care. The best feature of this hotel, aside from its location, is the helpful, friendly associates. The spa contains a whirlpool & steam rooms which were much appreciated after a day of touring.

A hotel disguised as a contemporary art gallery
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The overall vibe of the hotel is minimalistic funk, think of contemporary art displays here and there and some atmospheric finishing at some moments of the day. The bedroom is in a quite unusual setting; bathroom (shower and toilet) is not really separated apart from a glass door/wall. The bar service is excellent, very helpful staff. The breakfast does the job, nothing crazy but good enough for a start of day in windy Reykjavik. It’s very well situated, right next to awesome restaurants and bars.

Cool and modern but also warm and welcoming
Reviewed 1 month ago

My husband and I stayed here on vacation. I love this hotel. The decor is very cool and artsy but the feel of the place is somehow very warm and welcoming. The staff are all really helpful and competent. We had dinner and lunch in the restaurant and the food was quite good. Andre, our server, was especially charming, helpful and attentive — really excellent service. My husband got sick the first night and they were very gracious about letting us stay an extra night. The room was exactly what I like, not fussy but luxurious in all the right ways — comfortable bed, crisp white sheets, spotlessly clean bathroom, lots of towels and great water pressure in the shower. The only downsides were that they do not do breakfast and our room faced the street so there was a fair amount of noise from traffic and passersby (the price you pay perhaps for being in the heart of downtown). Also there was a lot of light coming in at night from the street lamps and I like a dark room fior sleeping. They actually upgraded us which was a very nice surprise so the room was spacious with a really cool tub, but next time I will ask for something quieter.

Trendy but expensive
Reviewed 1 month ago

The hotel has great sized rooms brilliant beds and pillows to melt into. The shower is a good size and the water hot. BUT the room heating is totally erratic either hoy or cold. The restaurant is spartan and dark especially at breakfast one has trouble identifying the food on the buffet. An interesting stay but not again.
