The hotel was very clean, staff were helpful, our room had a beautiful view of the city and the water, and the room itself was nice. The double bed fit two large adults easily, which was a concern when we were booking. The bathroom also included a tub in addition to the shower. The lobby area was nice with large doors to see out when waiting for tour guides or cabs, and was filled with pamphlets of various activities. Hair dryer/iron & board/mini fridge and laundry service pick up available.
The location was a bit further from the city than anticipated, it's listed as a medium walking distance, it is walkable, just not desirable on cold/rainy nights, approximately 20kr cab ride. The dinner buffet was fairly expensive and we didn't really care for it, we preferred the restaurants around the corner or in town and the cost was similar or less, potentially regular ordering tasted better than the buffet. No shampoo/conditioner/lotion, I always bring my own, but wanted to note.
They have all the basics. The hotel may be good for large groups/bus loads of people who need a place far from city center to rest for a night.
Politely rude staff: At 1:45 PM and earlier they say "Checkin is at 2 PM". Service Industry speak for Piss Off. 1:58 PM, "Your room is not ready". 2:02 PM, "We don't know if it is ready" (communication problems with housekeeping?) They sometimes seemed annoyed answering questions people had about how to go somewhere in the city or which day excursions are available. "Here's a brochure." is their typical answer. They never tell you the actual details of where to go or what to expect. Rooms were very basic. Tiny pillows on bed. Two cotton comforters on double bed, each was the size of a large towel. Breakfast and Dinner are very over priced.
Nice parking lot
Room was very warn, sheets did not fit the bed and furniture was dirty. Staff was not friendly. The hotel was not inexpensive and was probably the second worst I have ever stayed in. I would NOT recommend staying at this hotel.
Easy access, lots of parking, modern building and rooms Great to see Monaco and Cyprus Olympic teams there too,
Breakfast Buffet was excellent, lots of nice areas to sit in in lobby and restaurant. Nice staff.
The duvet. Very comfortable. The breakfast is included and very filling, especially to brave the cold of Rekyavik.
The staff did mess up our tour reservation once and we had to ask management time and again for something to be done about it. The desk in the room had some coffee stains and the shower door does not prevent the water from going all over the bathroom! Plus the hotel was definitely a bit distant from city center.
Clean, spacious, new, easy to find, good food, fairly central location.
Very positive staff. It's a new hotel with a great reception area with free Internet access. The view from 12th floor was stunning. The restaurant delivered the best fish dish I've had for long. I really recommend this hotel.
Nice big comfortable room
Very slow therefore irritating and expensive internet connection. Lost serveral times connection with my company's server
the only negative aspect was the cover of the bed which wasn't very comfortable.
