Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel and we were very pleased with our choice. Excellent location - within walking distance to shops, attractions and restaurants, including the famous hotdog booth!
Rooms were reasonably sized and very clean. Big bathroom with nice water pressure and hot water in the shower. The hotel provided tea making facilities, free wifi, slippers and bathrobes. There was both day and black-out curtains provided which is very useful as it was almost 24h day light in the shower. Rooms were well insulated, and they even have two heaters (one next to the room window) and one in the bathroom to keep one nice and warm after shower. We stayed at 501 which came with a small balcony, and at 502. Both rooms were on level 5 and were quiet even with the windows partially opened. Breakfast was not bad, with some hot dishes included. In our trip to iceland, we realized some of the hotels don't serve hot dishes at breakfast.
The staff at reception and restaurant were really nice, efficient and genuine. Flybus provides airport transfers to and fro this hotel.
If you have a car, finding a carpark lot may be a bit of a problem though, especially on weekends, as this hotel is in the city centre.
We will definitely stay at this hotel again if we go back to Iceland.
