    5/5 Excellent

    We loved the little apartment style accommodations and the room was spacious enough. The lady at the reception desk (sorry I can’t remember her name) was excellent giving ideas, recommendations and directions. We followed most of her recommendations (especially to eat) and were not disappointed! Lovely place to stay and nice location...walking distance to pretty much anywhere in downtown Reykjavík! Loved it!

    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!
