Loved everything here. Clean with comfortable beds. Quiet (good soundproofing?) Excellent location for sights and restaurants. Good staff support, We stayed 5 nights and ate breakfast every morning, once we saw it. Ten euros may sound like alot, but try buying a cup of coffee and anything to eat elsewhere, and for that price we got several types of eggs including with bacon and little sausages plus an array of good breads and crackers, peanut butter, good jams, yogurts, cereals, herring, cheeses and luncheon meats and the coffee or hot water for tea. It was all generous and plentiful served by pleasant young people. Great start to the day! We loved the special hotel touches like bathrobe and slippers, real washcloths, good liquid soap and the sophisticated bedding, curtains, lobby furniture, etc. At night the breakfast room turns into the Microbar with a different "happy hour" beer for 5oo isk each day. It was a way of sampling the local brews and we took advantage of the offer! The location is REALLY central. The Tourist office, the Iceland Excursions, the Volcano House, the Culture House, the Old Harbor, Eymundssons Bookstore, groceries (10-11 and Kyosin),lots of restaurants, expensive and reasonable, all nearby. And, we don't walk very well! Start with walking thru the green square behind the hotel to see the Parliament building, the simple church and end up at the City Hall (Rat Huus) to see the 3D map and enjoy the pond, and to the left of city hall, look for the Unknown Official statue. A hoot! You can even go to their cafe and get tourist info there. Also, nearby--the Settlement House (871 +- 2). Cheapest eats we liked by the hotel-- the bookstore cafe, the Lilly cafe (also a bookstore). There are lots of kebab houses, pizza, and Indian food right there. Hope you will be as happy as we were! And, get out of town on an excursion or road trip, too!
