We stayed here for 3 nights over the weekend for our honeymoon. I was concerned about the reviews of the noise over a weekend so requested a quiet room. The hotel accommodated our request and put us in room 502. Overlooking the park area at the back of the hotel. It was perfect. Very quiet, and even though we could hear the nightclub as we walked into the hotel every night as soon as we were in the room we couldn't hear it.
The room was lovely, well laid out, very comfortable bed. Kettle and mini bar in the room. Spacious bathroom and very clean.
The reception staff were lovely, especially the girl on in the daytime. She was always smiling, very chatty and when we were waiting for excursions she rang up the company if they were a couple of minutes late to make sure they were on their way. She also rebooked our cancelled northern lights trip without us needing to ask.
The staff at breakfast would do anything to help to, checking that we had all we wanted without being overbearing, they were very relaxed which was great.
Location can't be beaten. The city centre is fairly compact so you are close to everything, lots of restaurants close by at varying levels of price. We found a reasonable tapas that served traditional Icelandic meals just around the corner and a bistro that served huge burgers and nachos along with Icelandic meals that was also very well priced.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and not just for it's price. It is better than a lot of 4 star hotels I've stayed in. I will stay here again.
