The room was big and comfortable for 4 people. The double bed is huge and very comfortable. I would compare it to a 4 star hotel's bed. 3 of us actually fit onto the bed. The kitchen area is convenient to use and well stocked. You will find all kinds of utensils. Satelite tv from all over Europe. Everything about this hotel is just perfect! The staff was nice and really took care of you. The location is the best! Just a block away from the supermarket Bonus. Three blocks down to the coast for a great view of the huge mountains. And just outside the hotel is the main shopping street. Do yourself a favor and stay here!
The rooms are exquisite! Super modern and lovely! We loved that there was a washer/dryer in the room that we could use! Came in super handy! The kitchenette area was amazing...stocked with all the utensils and supplies you need. Bed was extremely comfortable! There was a clock near the bed that was very helpful for jet-lagged guests. The tv had british channels & had a lot of channels. The couch in the living room area can be used as a bed. The bathroom had a heated towel rack and two shower heads at varying heights. All in all....the room was stellar!
1. This company has only just started this business, so they are working out the kinks, and it's very obvious! 2. The main people you talk to (not the actual person at the hotel lobby area/office, like Gunnar) are not the friendliest and are NOT willing or able to get you into your room sooner than the 3pm check-in time! SOOOO, if you get into the city at 7am, like a lot of international flights...you will have to kill time in the city as an exhausted traveller, so just know that. They WILL, however, collect your bags and such to leave in their lobby area while you explore the city...but again, your luggage will remain in a lobby area, with no supervision. 3. Their actual dedicated main lobby is not manned by anyone. There is a phone that you can call from, and they DO answer all the time, but there is no one physically there. From this lobby, you will either have one of the few rooms in that actual building, or you will be taken around the city to a different apartment complex, where you might possibly be left in another random empty area, told to fill out 'these' papers, and then not see anyone for a while....and then someone else will happen to knock on that door, and THEN someone will see you, and you'll say, "Hey, I'd like to get my room too!", and then they will get you settled. Basically, I was ignored in one lobby, driven across the city, and then ignored in another lobby, but was eventually let into my room, which was amazing, and promptly slept for 14.5 hours. 4. There was NO PHONE in our room! Apparently, there was supposed to have been, BUT......make sure you get a room with a phone. As an international traveller, we obviously didn't have an Icelandic cell phone, so all of their emergency contact numbers or even to call a hotel personnel, we didn't have the capability! 5. Our internet was down the entire first day....we had an extremely hard time getting a hold of any hotel person to get it fixed. Once we found someone...
The apartment itself was perfect- both localization and its look..
Unfortunately they way you check in is a nightmare...there is no reception in a normal way, I had to wait 15 minutes to be picked up from one location and be brought to a different one..and on the way we were picking up somebody else for different apartment...really, it's an easy improvement to have a normal reception in one place and than the hotel would be just perfect..
The OK Hotel was one the best places where I've stayed ever, specially when I think how cheap it was. With a lovely design, very pratical and funtional and very well located , in one of the best streets of Reykjavik. The hotel staff was very helpfull and friendly.
It was very comfortable and it a perfect location for us. The bed was comfy, kitchen had everything we needed and good hot shower. I liked the decoration. Big TV too.
I was attracted to the idea of having a guitar to play as this was indicated on the booking page but there was not one in our apartment. Unlikely to be a problem for many people. It's an interesting place to stay as you don't meet any people, you just speak on the phone and get the keys from a small safe, no problem for us but different to most other places I ever stayed.
It's on the main 'walking' street where many shops and restaurants are and it also leads to the downtown part of the city. The lobby is locked so it feels very private and secure. The rooms are decorated in a unique way yet it is modern and really clean. The room I stayed in had a nice view, was warm and cozy and really just perfect! I was in Reykjavik in July also and wish I would have stayed at this hotel. The staff were ultra friendly and helpful and there were written directions about Wi-fi and other details so you didn't have to ask or guess.
The hotel is in a good location at the quiet end of the main street in Reykjavík. Small kitchenette is well equiped with everything you need and there is a supermarket (Bonus) just across the street. Hotel has a modern, funky feel to it, tv with UK channels - all in English.
The reception isn't manned and you need to phone the management for any issues. On arrival it took one hour for someone to arrive to check us in after agreeing with the manager (over the phone) that we would get access to our room in 10 minutes. It's a new hotel, so not completely finished yet. Reception as well as some of the rooms are still being worked on.
I liked that the room had a kitchen and I liked the decorations in the room.
The elevator was slow and smelled like puke. Odd 'reception'.
The hotel was great. It's brand new, super clean with a funky design and lay out. Room came with a kitchen and had access to a rooftop patio. If you want to wander around downtown Reykjavik I don't think the location could be any better. It was very good deal considering the amenities and location.
There isn't an employee on site in the lobby. There is a phone that calls a receptionist and they answer 24/7.
Room was convenient and our contact was prompt in getting us to the room.
We were "upgraded," to another property a few blocks away. The apartment we received had a glass bathroom door, that faced the front of the apartment. The toilet was right behind that door, so you could see it, door open or closed, from every point in the apartment. Additionally, the fridge didn't open because it was obstructed by the sliding kitchenette doors, and there were zero shelves, cabinets, or closets to store anything in, and no floor space away from the walking corridor (from front door to aforementioned bathroom). The apartment was clean, but unliveable.
There was no-one around to help/ask questions - you had to call someone over the phone - even to be let in to the building. The hotel was still being built so some of the amenities were not available and there was loud drilling during the day and they managed to set off a fire alarm and evacuate the building while my kids were sleeping. The wifi didn't work for the first 2 days we stayed. We booked an appartment for 6 adults even though we were 2 adults and 3 young children, assuming it would have multiple rooms but it only had one room (plus a bathroom) with one large bed and a small sofa bed (too small for adults) - we were given a cot for our youngest son, but in no way could the room have accommodated 6 adults. I feel totally cheated. It was also supposed to be in a quiet area but there is a loud nightclub opposite with lots of drunks shouting outside from 11pm - 1am The bathroom was very small and it was difficult to stop the water from the shower from flowing over the bathroom floor.
Superb location right on the main shopping street. Clean, smart, quirky design and decor.
This is not a hotel; it's an apartment. We stayed for 4 days and there was no sign of any room cleaning or any replacement of essentials such as toilet rolls or towels at any time. It's also unclear whether any of the apartments with balconies and outside space shown on the Booked.net website actually exist, so don't base your booking decision on these images. I emailed OK about this before my stay but never received a reply. Perhaps Booked.net should take responsibility for ensuring that these images are a true representation of what's on offer. No check-in before 3pm, which is pretty late if your flight arrives at 9.30am.
Very central location on the main trade street. Cozy apartments nicely designed in Scandinavian style.Every necessary equipment on the samll kitchenette. Public parking is just in front of the hotel. Considering it's payable only from 10 to 18 we parked free at night
Pretty high price for such an accomodation comparing to continental Europe which is as I understood normal for Reykjavik. In any case it's affordable
We loved the funky decor of the OK Hotel. The room was pretty plain, but had a fun theme. I wonder if all the rooms had different themes? It's right in town on the main street. Our room had a little balcony.
The only thing we didn't like was the fact that our room faced the street. It's only a small one-way street, but it has a lot of traffic - both vehicular and foot. Since it never gets really dark in Reykjavik during the summer, there are always people walking about and usually talking loudly. The room is not air conditioned, so we needed the window open. There are other room which open onto a terrace on the back of the hotel which would presumably be much quieter.
Very clean, well equipped apartment. Don't be put off by exterior. Amusing and original decor in apartment. Located close to boutiques and cathedral and walking distance to centre and restaurants.
No personal contact with apartment staff during visit.
