Centrally located & great breakfast

Stayed here for three nights at the start of an Iceland vacation. The hotel is very modern and to a high standard with a clientele of tourists, tour groups, airline crew and Icelandic / Scandinavian business execs. We had a fourth floor room overlooking a square. The room was a good size but a little narrow and elongated in layout. The downside was the noise from the bar opposite which stayed open on Friday night with very loud music until the early hours, so be warned if you are a light sleeper and ask for a better placed room. Breakfast (buffet) was fantastic but did get swamped with a large tour group on our last morning. Overall we were happy and would recommend based on the general ambience, central location and quality breakfast.

Great location, nice rooms, boom box included

Ok, this review is written with an understanding that when the first weekend of decent weather descends upon Reykjavik, people will party. For a long time. Well into almost sunrise on Friday and Saturday evenings. These people know how to party. We felt we were in the pub which was directly below our room and the dance club directly across the street. The partying and music kept us up both nights. Yet we were in the spirit of spring breaking out and quite tolerant - maybe to a fault. So when you stay there, do not get a room on the street side over the pub. We did speak to the front desk just out of curiosity of the noise and found they could do nothing about it. The clubs are allowed to stay open until 5 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. I guess I did not do enough research - but you would think the hotel would let us know about where they put us and its boom box environment. Room was booked months in advance.

That being said, the place has modern design, well appointed, lots of open gathering spaces (lounges, patios), nice breakfast and a pretty good restaurant. The location is ideal - we were able to walk to most of the downtown features. So its a good place to stay but request rooms further away from street and pub - unless you do not want to pay a cover charge for the music!!

The hotel is in a great location but unfortunately is very noisy at night and had no recourse. In addition the tv is horrible regarding channel selection. Unless you want to watch cnn there are no other English speaking choices. The hotel is well kept but has no air circulation due to small operating window and noise issues outside. The breakfast is good and the rooms are clean although small.
