Half of this hotel is quite an old building by Reykjavik standards while the other half is brand new, blending together beautifully with an attractive white facade. This well located and managed property is the newest of Reykjaviks new breed of boutique hotel. It comes highly recommended. This hotel is situated just off Reykjavik's main shopping street Laugarvegur in a narrow side street. It is for the most part a peaceful location, but can be a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights. The rooms vary in size, but all but a few are large. They are decorated with stylish state-of-the-art furniture and colourschemes. Some of the rooms on the top floor have characterful sloping ceilings and dormer windows. They are in exceptional conditions as are the modern bathrooms.
