This hotel really could not be better located, right in the centre of Reykjavik's old town and just around the corner from Parliament Square. It could, indeed, be said that it is located right on the spot where Reykjavik began its history; during the building of the hotel archaeological remains were discovered which were part of the original settlement, and these are on display in a mini-museum in the hotel's basement. The medium-sized rooms are among those of the highest quality in Iceland. They are very modern in terms of facilities, but with charming traditional touches. Both the rooms and the bathrooms are in exceptional condition. This is really a magical property constructed with imagination and an eye for detail. The architectural and building conversion work have been done by a company well-known for its expertise in the restoration of historic Icelandic buildings. The hotel's location and historical provenance are arguably unbeatable. It comes highly recommended.
