I was a bit nervous after reading some reviews of this hotel but we ended up having a wonderful stay! The rooms are small but the size was on par with other city hotel rooms. We did hear late night music but again this is a city, I used a white noise machine and slept well. Staff was friendly and helpful. FREE convenient parking. Great location. Hot tub and steam rooms were a fun plus.
Overall I really liked this hotel - the rooms are modern, clean, and comfortable although a little more closet space would be nice. We received upgraded rooms, which was a nice touch as there was an email glitch that did not forward my confirmation, so I wasn't 100% sure we had a room when we arrived late at night (but we did!) We stayed twice during our trip, and I would definitely stay here again. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the location to the sights, shops, and restaurants of Reykjavik are all easy walking distance. There are parking garages nearby too if you cannot get (or fit into) the 6 spots the hotel has reserved. We had nice views from both our rooms. Be aware that there are bars nearby that are very popular on weekends so you may hear some street noise during your stay (obviously not the hotel's fault.) But this is the same anywhere you stay downtown in Reykjavik. Earplugs are available, and I use a white noise app on my phone, which helps.
The location, room, bed, shower, and staff were all great. Just expensive for what we are used to. Over a $1000 (US) per night for a studio suite is a lot. I enjoyed the art throughout the hotel but the dark corridors were a problem if you dropped something. WHen I used my phone's flashlight to look for my dropped item, I was surprised to find the dark purple painted walls. I thought they were black.
