We chose this hotel because it was unique - they have the largest private Icelandic art collection in the country and it was tucked away in what appeared to be a residential neighborhood. It was quiet, the room was clean and the morning breakfast was good. It is a 10 minute

Conveniently located, an easy walk to the heart of the city. It was quiet, away from the crowds. A tasty breakfast, which was much appreciated due to the cost of food on iceland. On site parking, friendly staff, clean rooms and I thought it was not very expensive.

Dear Daviejones67, Thank you for your great review! You are so right about the location being ideal for exploring the city centre of Reykjavík. We feel very fortunate to be in this quite residential area close to everything. Next time we hope you give our restaurant a try at dinner time and enjoy our art walk! We hope we will get the chance to welcome you back in the near future.
