We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 'Northern Lights' trip booked via Travelzoo - amazing value for money - £299 each which included flights, 3 night's B&B at the Klettur, and the Northern Lights trip. I wasn't expecting much for that price, but was really pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean, comfy beds and a great shower. Breakfast was the standard continental fare - breads, cheese, ham etc., and was more than adequate. The staff were always helpful, friendly and polite.
Reykjavik is lovely, with plenty of restaurants/cafes, and lots of boutiques. We visited the National Museum of Iceland which was very interesting, and also went to the Culture House Museum which was very disappointing - just a few original manuscripts to look at and really not worth the entrance fee.
We were lucky to see a display of the Northern Lights on our second night out on the included trip, which was quite stunning, but very, very, cold, as we were standing still for about an hour and a half, so do wrap up really well!
We also did the Golden Circle tour which gave us a chance to see some of the major places of interest in Iceland - Gulfoss waterfall, the origianl Geysir's, and the National Park were particularly good, but if you go do wear appropriate footwear as the paths were really icy.
Overall, we had a great time in Iceland, and I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this hotel.
