Convenient and well located. Quiet.
Beds were a little dirty.
The facilities were clean and the staff was welcoming. Breakfast was interesting.... So is every breakfast bar at hostel/guesthouse style lodging.
I knew what type of facility its was so I knew what I was getting into. All around solid performance.
Friendly and convenient!
The breakfast was good, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. It wasn't a bad walk to downtown Reykjavik (only 40-50 mins), and it has a beautiful view. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms upstairs were cozy. While there was only one shower/toilet per gender per floor, I only had to wait once to use the bathroom. Mostly, people were polite and did their business quickly. (It helps if you're showering in the evening, I suppose.)
The noise from the road is very loud, but if you're tired it doesn't matter. The water from the faucet smelled like eggs (sulfur), but it was't terrible. The water pressure for the ladies' shower on the second floor was pretty bad, but I was still able to get clean.
Good for value
Rooms are well-equipped VERY helpful staff breakfast had good quality food and a good variety quiet neighborhood
room smelled a bit musty only two toilet/showers per floor of about 10 rooms
The breakfaste and service.
Hotel personnel and breakfeast. Also the possibility to make your own meals
Hotel is located just by main road. So if you have the room from road side it can be noisy
Guests were mostly international students and fun to visit with them
It was more like student dorm. & family hotel and was no 24hr staff to wake you up!! You must have your own alarm clock. I almost missedmy early morning flight because the alarm clock the hotel lent me did not go off!!
Breakfast was very good
Too far away from everything, no transport (shuttle bus did not work) on website the free shuttle bus service was stated, which made taxi transport very expensive
the staff were very friendley and helpfull, good english spoken so that was good being english, the breakfast was excellent value, with a good all round sellection, the hotel was very good value for money, the rooms were cleaned, and supplied with fresh towels each day. I was very happy.
It is a little off the beaten track, but for people of moderate fitness this presents no problem, and the busses are regular, and within reach of the hotel.
Friendly staff, clean
- Noise (doors, highway) - tv quality - monotone breakfast - bathroom needs a facelift
Because of the personal service (telephone calls and taking messages, computer use in office, laundry facilities and coffee anytime) the Capital Inn became a home away from home.
Distance from downtown--but with bus service and shuttle service, it wasn't a problem.
The Capital Inn is a great stay for backpackers. (I didn't stay in the hotel part, just the dormitory part). The rooms are large and there is free wi-fi!!! The kitchen is also large and has a lot of cooking utensils for you to use! The bathroom is okay, but I won't go into any glowing praises for it. There are bicycles to rent, but I found it an easy 30-40 minute walk to Downtown.
I had one issue with the hotel and one issue with Booking.com. My issue with the hotel is that it is not really a 24 hour Front Desk. There is a staff member that is on site 24 hours, but when I rolled in at 1:30am, he was asleep in his room and the doorbell wouldn't wake him. Luckily I was able to access their wi-fi, call the number and got a hold of the owner who was sleeping in his house and drove over to the hotel to give me a key. My issue with Booking.com was that they did not list the dormitory as a sleeping bag room. If you don't have your own sleeping bag and towel, they will rent you some for 6 euros per night.
Women's shower did not drain.
