Absolutely wonderful. This was my first stop in Iceland to stay the night in Reykjavik. The staff deserves a 20/10. The wonderful lady, who I believe was in charge, was extremely accommodating and even gave me some recommendations on what to do in Reykjavik. Will be back soon for sure!

Highly recommended
Very warm welcome from the local hostess with enormous knowledge of the local attractions and driving conditions. She was extremely helpful and called our activities organiser to ensure we could get there safety. The room itself was very clean, well equipped and comfortable.

Comfortable, modern, welcoming!
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at this family run hotel. The booking process was easy and the price was very reasonable. The property boasts free parking and a keyless/contactless check in. They have a keypad system throughout the hotel and email the code at booking. All parts of the hotel were immaculately clean.The communal and room pictures posted online were accurate. The restaurant area downstairs was large and nicely decorated and laid out. Breakfast included a variety of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, cakes, cereals and milks. It also had a fancy "Jura" coffee machine, that was an absolute win for us. The owner/manager was very kind and nice to talk to. She baked a fresh cake for a guests birthday, while we were there. She also searched in the kitchen for gluten free options for my wife and advised us that if we had of let her know beforehand, she would have gone out to get gluten free bread just for us! The room was just as advertised and was very clean and finished to a high standard. It had a king bed, heated floor, multi-brightness light system, comfortable sitting area and large bathroom with wet-room style shower. The room also included a fridge and "Nespresso" machine. If we were to visit Reykjavik again, this would 100% be where we stay. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

We loved that is was a small, locally own facility. Maria, the owner treated us like old friends sitting and talking with us giving amazing recommendations as to things we should experience while in the area. She suggested incredible local restaurants and culture. The hotel was a quick walk to the center of downtown and 1 block to an easy pick up point for most of the tours We loved it and will definitely return. Check out the HOTEL LOTUS!!
