Four nights in this hotel in February 2014.
On arrival we were offered room 202. Allegedly a double it seemed like a small single. But, even though the hotel was full, we were moved to a disabled room next door. Much better but lacked cupboard space and surfaces in the bathroom to put things.
Breakfast was just about ok but the room was was inadequate with not enough clean cutlery, a slow kettle for tea, running out of hot food.
But on the plus side the hotel was very clean, the bed excellent, good location in the centre of Reykjavik and the reception staff were really helpful - they couldn't do enough when asked.
So, how many stars. I always start at 5 and come downwards. I'd like to give 5 but feel 3.5 is correct. So I've rounded it up to 4.
