I booked this a while ago on a third party site so don't know exactly how much I paid, but I think I got a good deal. The hotel is located in the city center, a 5 min walk from Laugavegur, & 2 min from the famous hotdog stand. It's also within walking to distance to the harbor, making it a good, central location. I hear the Center hotels have bigger rooms by Icelandic standards, which is def true! I was a little scared based on the reviews from ppl saying the rooms were small, but our room (a double) had plenty of space for 2 ppl, a nice big balcony, & big bathroom. It's definitely not what I expected, I've stayed in much smaller rooms in other cities (NYC, Boston.) The part that makes this hotel stand out is how helpful the staff is. The front desk people did everything (called taxis, confirmed tours, gave us umbrellas for the rain, provided directions & recommendations) & I can't say enough good things about them! Our flight arrived early the first day, & the guy who checked us in provided a map along with a written guide to tourist attractions that he showed us on the computer. The hotel provided a lot of extras (nice complimentary toiletries in bathroom, robes, slippers), room was always cleaned when requested, & extra towels were provided. For $12/person, you can get the breakfast buffet in the morning, which has a lot of unlimited choices (cereal, cold cuts, skyr, bacon, eggs, toast, fruit, fresh juice etc.) Prob the cheapest breakfast you will find! I def recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Iceland who wants to be within walking distance to the main attractions!
