Cold staff when check-in, not show us the way to kitchen just simple words, no smile, too. Not convenient for high floor room (4F without elevator), because the kitchen is on first floor in another house. Nice room and dining room.

Travel tips...

Budget meal tip

Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, delicious hotdogs and probably the cheapest food you can find in Reykjavik (including the grocery store)

Where next?

More Nordic countries! But really, you can get to most major cities in Europe with Iceland Air.
