8/10 Very good

Good location, small room
My wife and I both liked and ultimately recommend Alda as a place you should stay, but there are some caveats travelers should know about. I would not classify Alda as 4 star. 3 star. PROS: upscale burger restaurant on site. Nice lobby living room. Very Clean. Beds very comfy. Blackout blinds made the 24 houra of sun seem like only 18 hours of sun. The location is very tousity but perfect. Plenty of kitsch shops, coffee places, bars, and restaurants within a few blocks. Other hotels might get loud music but Alda's block is calm so we did not. Almost everything in the city is walking distance, but we rented a car anyway for day trips and you can feed the meter for an entire day (not just 2 hours) and not worry about garages. Metered parking Sunday is free. Do yourself a favor and rent a small car. CONS: No fridge. No storage, so you WILL be living out of your suitcase the entire time. The rooms are small, so do NOT bring a checked bag with you unless you plan to climb over it every time you come in. There are no clothes rods. To save space there are wall hooks with coat hangers. The shower folds up in the bathroom. It is a stall with collapsable walls that you open to form a watertight square. So the room doesn't flood but the whole area in front of the toilet gets wet and it has to be folded back against the wall or you can't go to the bathtoom. I guess it saves space but this was very annoying. Also the shower is small at about 1m/3ft square.

Great place to stay in Reykjavik
The room was very comfortable and the location of the hotel is excellent - particularly for accessing tour buses and a variety 0f nice restaurants. The hotel provides a mobile device for communication with the reception desk (no land line) and for checking out things locally with unlimited access. Rather unique ... The staff was generally great, but the person who checked me in was quite unexpectedly gruff.

Great location
Great location in the centre of Reykjavik, on the Main Street with restaurants, bars and a supermarket close by. Close to some of the main bus stops to pick up tours and around 15 minutes walk to the main bus station for buses to/from the airport. Our room was a bit small but we hardly spent any time in it. Nice little sauna too if you have time

Lovely hotel - disappointed with communication
Great stay - lovely hotel. However disappointed with the communication regarding a plug adaptor that was left in the room. We know for certain that it was left plugged in the wall - but after multiple calls to the hotel and being told we would be called back - it was never resolved. So unfortunately it was never resolved.

The balconies are shared and it's pretty cool because you can walk around and get great views from both sides.
