The last 3 days of my stay were marred by the almost unbearable heat of my room. I reported the concern to the front desk staf and was given a fan. The fan helped slightly but the heat was still very uncomfortable along with the misty odor that god stronger each day Overall I wanted to loved the LOFT but I did not. I doubt that I'll return

Best location! Easily walkable to everything in downtown Reykjavik and bus pick ups. The place was clean, breakfast was tasty, and the upstairs bar and patio were awesome to hang out at. Wish I had stayed here longer :)
