Staff super amável
O hotel fica em um ótimo local no centro, a uma curta distância de todos os lugares. Tem um design moderno do norte da Europa, simples, mas elegante. Adorei o prédio antigo. A chaleira de água quente no quarto é incrível depois de voltar de um passeio. A equipe foi simpática e educada. Os banheiros parecem não coincidir com o resto do quarto e hotel. Precisam ser atualizados.
The location of the hotel is perfect for walking around the shops and grabbing dinner. Our room was really small especially the shower. We both banged our arms on it trying to shower. Not what we are used to.
The front desc staff were absolutely wonderful and most helpful in both the usual ways and also in requests that were less common, Like coming out to help me use the parking meter We liked everything
Very central and for Reykjavik excellently value. Breakfast and locale
The location was great with plenty of street parking nearby. We are only a few blocks away from the main church. You can easily walk anywhere n the Reykjavik area. The room was also comfortable and very clean. The Snaps restaurant is also great for a meal.
Great location. Easy waking distance to harbor area. Very nice staff. Very good Breakfast. Restaurant extremely busy every night with locals and tourists so difficult to have dinner without reservation. Very noisy until after midnight every night as patrons exited restaurant/bar and hung around on street below our bedroom. Recommend you request room at back of hotel or bring earplugs
Attractive Scandinavian decor, perfect location, cheerful and knowledgeable 24 hour staff.
Location, view from room and very service minded staff.
The friendly front desk staff + the view of city/harbor from the room. No on-site parking. Free parking in nearby lot from 6 p.m to 10:00 am...I had to get up and move the car to an area about four blocks away for the rest of the day...otherwise pay about $ 1. per hour to park.
Nice room in great location. Simple, elegant hotel. Would definitely stay again.
The front desk staff was amazing. They helped us several time with questions we had We rented one of their apartments for a couple days and it was huge. Wonderful street views and easy walking distance to everything you need. We never ate at their restaurant but we have heard is very good and reasonably priced.
We liked the location near city center and the view out our 3rd floor balcony. The room was spacious and comfortable. The shower was especially welcome after a day of horseback riding and sightseeing. The restaurant in the hotel, Snaps was very accommodating by seating us near closing. They served an excellent meal. On street parking was a little unnerving but turned out fine. It seems that after 6:30pm free parking on the streets is a free-for-all in Reykjavik with anything goes.
Location Working on the room above use for two days. Couldn't. Be in our room during the day to relax. While on vacation till after 18:00..
Gostei da localização dado ser muito central para conhecer a cidade e também da rapidez com a qual responderam ao meu pedido de ajuda para a localização com um site que me ajudou nas restantes. O quarto é razoável, confortável. Não gostei do modo de pagamento pelos cambios que fazem pois, apesar de a coroa estar mais desvalorizada quando da minha estadia do que aquando da reserva, escolhi pagar em euros e paguei mais do que estava no preço da reserva. Falei disto com a recepcionista e fui remetida para as condições da reserva o que eu acho que não explicam o sucedido.
Atenção por parte de todos funcinarios, limpeza e qualidade do restaurante Não
The hotel was great. From the atmosphere and decorations to the people working there. The front desk staff were amazing and friendly. They were always ready to help and had a smile on there faces everyday. We got a family sized room for two people just because I heard the rooms might be smaller. However the room was bigger than I expected including the bathroom. You hear that the shower doors fold to make more room. However even extended there is enough room for the other person to use the sink or get ready. The hotel gives you a cell phone with data included, which was honestly amazing. I made the phone into a wifi hotspot and was able to use my own cell phone throughout the trip. Just bring portable charger with you as the phone battery dies quickly this way. The hotel is also located on the main strip and perfect walking distance from restaurants and bars. But a few blocks down so you don't hear the noise of the bars at night. We never tried the breakfast downstairs as we always had say trips planned in the mornings. There is a bakery down the street that is open early I can't remember the name of it but the front desk told us about it. Big enough to sit down and have breakfast, but gets packed as well so give yourself enough time if you have morning plans. The room does come with a pot to make your own hot tea and instant coffee if you are in a rush. Hard to say what I did not like about the hotel. The only thing I can think of is that the room gets very warm and with no thermostat to control temperature. We opened the window everyday however it only opens a tiny crack and doesn't stay open on its own. Probably from the wind outside. Just bring light pajamas with you and you will be fine.
Somehow this isn't mentioned on their website or any reviews I've seen, but Hotel Alda gives each guest an android smartphone in lieu of a room phone. This phone works throughout Iceland, has reception on speed dial, and has all the other bells and whistles you'd expect of s smartphone: maps, activity guides, etc. A great and welcome surprise! Unfortunately for the hotel, but fortunately for Reykjavik generally, there is a bit of construction going on near the facilities. Not a big deal if you're getting up early to go on an adventure, but if you intend to sleep in do ask for a room on the other side of the hotel. This advice should be good through the end of summer 2015.
Location and view. Smal room, not much storage room.
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, nice and comfortable rooms.
The fact that they had our reservation. Nothing else The decor. The small size of the room. The very noisy traffic outside. The bad, cheap fittings. The flaking paint on the window frames. The fact that it was not a proper double bed matress but two single matresses pushed together. The horrible noise when the toilet was flushed. The fact that the bathroom was so tiny that my knees pressed against the wall when I sat on the toilet.
Flexibility in downgrading me to a cheaper room w/out decrease in the room price. Breakfast was not up to scratch. Also listening to a loud TV and two philipino maids having a loud discussion behind my back for the duration of my 15 min breakfast was not nice. The drunken lot in the bar in the afternoon made me take my drink into the room.
This hotel is wondeful. Don't be put of by dreary exterior and hallways - rooms are excellent for price. Ideal for centre of City - all within walking distance. Staff very friendly Breakfast good for Iceland hotel fare.
Clean , central , best of all , service excellent , staff very helpful Nothing
Clean nice rooms Staff told me our two rooms would be 120 euros each, then revised the price upwards during both of our two separate stays at the hotel - got the feeling they bumped up the normal price to match an inflated price I'd agreed to when booking on the internet
I was traveling alone and felt very safe here. All the tours picked me up and I felt comfortable walking around the area on my own. Also, the woman at the front desk was so nice and helpful and made several phone calls for me. I would definitely stay here again!
- Extremely friendly staff - Nice atmosphere - Good breakfast - Nice soft bed - Some of the rooms didn't have their own bathroom (but that was alright for me) - Some rooms are prone to have traffic noise (I had no problems with that though)
Awesome location on Reykjavik's main street while not close enough to be bothered by the nightly audio chaos. Room was rather small but had everything we needed at a reasonable price. Not super easy to find
Cheap price. No bath room in the room.
A little bit small, but relatively cheap, clean, convenient, and breakfast included.
central location including breakfast shared bathroom facilities were not clearly explained on website so disappointed. and had twin beds rather than a double when booked for a couple.
great location, quiet as can be but near everything in the centre-- lovely room with amazingly comfy bed, and terrific staff. Breakfast is great, as well! Terrific hotel! not applicable.
Restaurant at top floor with views that make your breakfast memorable. Nice room. Free of charge parking.
The location is excellent Cleanliness in the rooms could be improved - when we arrived the sheets had not been changed in our bed + the toilet had not even been flushed !! Also the young man at the reception was quite rude when we checked in - he wanted me to pay the bill right away and when I said I would pay it when we leave the hotel he simply threw the room keys on the desk and wanted to check my credit card details.
design hotel and great breakfast no
Nice rooms, comfortable beds.Very good location.Buffet breakfast good including Icelandic selections. Bathroom small and modernist rather than functional.
Our room was kept quite clean. We also paid a 10 euro charge to use the spa area which was a very nice ammenity. There was very little room for unpacking clothing and storing luggage. However my wife and I were able to manage with the hanging rods and shelves provided (no dressers). The shower is a bit odd since there is no tub and just a swinging door, but after the first use we figured out how to minimize the wetness and made sure to shower with the door and window cracked to remove moisture more quickly. As others said, there is an issue with air circulation but we opened the window and were fine (we were there mid September). However this may not be a workable option during the winter. There was also construction which unfortunately blocked some of the panoramic views but was surprisingly quite and did not seem to interrupt our rest.
Location near the city center. Transportation from the airport well organised. Nice view from the breakfast room. The window did not close properly, bringing important noise from the street.
Lovely linens and light airy rooms. The fact the it is adjacent to a large construction site and this was not advertised. Hairs on the bed when I checked into my room. Poor value for money.
The design of the hotel is great. Its very modern and sleek. The views are fantastic. Whether you're at the Sky Lounge or the comfortable lobby, you can clearly see the beautiful harbor and mountain range. The location of the hotel is also great. Its right by the downtown area and can easily walk to the strip without the barrage of traffic. The hotel is also 5 minutes from many museums and shops by the harbor and beyond. Because of the central location, space is tight. The room offers minimal storage and the bathroom has a convertible shower that takes advantage space. The design was beautiful but the quarters were close. The breakfast was OK. It was the first meal I had where fish was not an option. The crumbled eggs were dry and actually crunchy. Bacon was either burnt or raw. However, the view from the top of the hotel easily distracted these inconveniences.
24 hours reception, close to the center
Clean, good location, decent breakfast, good views from breakfast (from the 8th floor), parking nearby, looks very new and modern, managed to get an awesome deal making it very good value at 88eur per night for two (even compared to youth hostels if comparing overall service and location) Small room, no wardrobe, bad view to the back, no proper curtains, lots of slamming of doors from other guests, sold out for dinner at 10pm
Excellent location, great harbour view, very clean room and the bed was huge! Didn't try the restaurant but the bar service was good and the bar area was very nice and relaxing. Staff were very helpful and pleasant.
Atmosphere, people - nothing too much trouble, central location - overall great Disappointed that the suana wasnt working for all 3 days - one of the reasons I chose this hotel
good staff, great location, nice appointrments, lovely atmosphere doors were tough to open and slammed shut, which can wake you in the small hours
The staff were really helpful, very clean room and bar
Bed, showers, furniture No drawers, no dress closets
Nice, quiet residential street. Short walk to shopping area & tourist sights. Having a kitchen (with coffee pot, kettle, dishes, utensils, cooking pots, etc.) in our room was great, since eating out was so expensive. There were 9 of us in three apartments. All of our rooms had different lay-outs, and one of them had a large living room where we could all gather comfortably (Apt. 2) Very friendly, helpful innkeepers, also!
No fuss, just go and enjoy. Loved being able to cook a bit since eating out is crazy expensive. Parking spots are difficult sometimes. The water smelled of sulfur.
Localização em lugar muito tranquilo e muito central Falta local fechado para guardar bagagem após o checkout
Da pouca distancia à principal rua de lojas e animação,contudo sem barulho . da simpatia dos funcionários ,sendo contudo o pequeno-almoço muito pobre. Melhorar muito o pequeno almoço e o espaço para o mesmo
Do aspecto algo pacato e do facto de ser tão central. Um optimo ponto de partida para conhecer uma das zonas mais interessantes de Reykjavik. Mais espaço nos quartos, melhor isolamento em relação ao barulho que vem da rua.
good value and really close to everything you want to see the shower on the ground floor was borderline to hot.
location was wonderful, and easy to explane when you are lost because there was a pizza restaurant near by. Also, it was one block away from the famous church. Breakfast was wonderful. couldn't stop eating the bread they provided. it maybe difficult to use the restroom, since the building i stayed was a modified house, which had only one bathroom( just one) on the floor with three bed room.
Location/friendly staff Tight couldn't get wifi to work
The hosts are very, very friendly. The guesthouse is very well located, near city center, 15 minutes walk from Bus terminal and airport. The room is not well noise-isolated. You can hear what's going on. It's no problem if the other guests are ok, but with noisy clients, you may need earplugs
Great location, friendly staff, very basic but cheerful rooms, perfect for budget traveller Not soundproof
Very lovely place, clean, quiet and simple. It's right in the center of the city which is a huge plus.The staying comes with a breakfest- everything was fresh, nice variety.
The guesthouse was very comfy and welcoming. My single room was small but what else does a single traveller need than a bed, a desk and a mirror? The room was also very clean and free WIFI is always a pleasure. I´d like to once again thank my hostess because she helped me finding my credit card which I had left in a shop. You really saved my day! Well, the church next to the guesthouse played the bells every half an hour. That wasn´t so enjoyable. But I suppose one could get use to it some day...?
The LOKI 101 was a favorite among the many stayplaces used by my daughter & I on our 5-week vacation to Norway, Sweden, Denmark & Iceland. The hostesses made us feel like family and were very accommodating of all our needs. The location is perfect, central to all the sights, bus lines, activities and with at-the-door pick-ups by all the tours. Added pluses were the church next door that you can see from everywhere else to orient yourself instantly to your stayplace and the easy access to all of the geothermal pools (many) available free with the City Card. The 4-story water slide thru warm water was our favorite! An E-ticket at Disneyland with no waiting lines!!
The staff is very friendly It's not very comfortable and rather expensive.
It was fine and the proprietors were charming.
The owners of the LOKI 101 Guest house were amazing - they were very accommodating of the changes that I had to make to my schedule based on a last minute flight change. Overall, it was very clean and modern, with great staff and a good breakfast. I will be recommending it to my friends.
Friendly, welcoming staff. Clean and comfortable, centrally located. This is my second stay and Guesthouse Loki, and I would definately stay again.
Location and kind owner Too expensive for the services and facilities
A localização. O elevador ajudaria e ter uma casa de banho maior. Uma das camas tinha um lençol rasgado.
O melhor que se pode dizer do Hotel é que está num local de fácil acesso aos pontos mais importantes da cidade. O pessoal do hotel com quem tive de lidar, com uma honrosa excepção, demonstra um certo amadorismo. O melhor paralelo que encontro é com a série Fawlty Towers...
