Myself and some friends from Ireland stayed here and thought it was awesome. It is definitely better than any hotels. You have your own apartment within the hotel building. Everything is really modern, cool IKEA design. The beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is really spacious and the shower had great water pressure which I really appreciated at the end of an activity day on the glaciers!!
They put a tray of breakfast food in your fridge every day so you can get up in the morning, make some really good coffee in the coffee machine and make some nice breakfast. You get orange juice, milk, tea, coffee, skyir yogurt, three types of cheese, bagels, bread rolls and sliced bread. Also there is cornflakes, slices of ham, butter and jam. Basically, it's a nice breakfast before you head out for the day.
There is free wifi in the building which is great cause I had my mac with me and was able to look up tours on line and if you book online you get discounts with a lot of the tours :-)
The staff are really friendly and helpful and have a great sense of humour.
The location is great!! A two minute walk to the city centre, restaurants and the sea is only a 5 minute walk away (which is great if you like to go for a morning run).
Overall, this place is better than I expected. When I go back to Iceland, and I definitely will, I will most certainly stay here again!! :-)
