We arrived here early on a dark and unusually cold morning in early December during Iceland's coldest weather in 50 years (or so we were told). We arrived following an all night flight from L.A. via Seattle. Having read the reviews here, we knew it was possible to pay a small fee and get an early check-in if a room was available. We paid the equivalent of $17 US for our room on the lobby level. It was perfect. We had wifi (due to the location), the parking lot across the street was available and everything was just fine with the room. The staff at the Klettur was friendly and very helpful. Despite the -18 degrees C, the clerk directed us to a local restaurant which was exactly what we wanted and wasn't too far a walk. The morning buffet was quite good - however, the coffee was extraordinary. A reviewer mentioned bringing your own cup (which I did). Don't bother. The coffee comes from the machine premeasured for their own cups. Just have a second cup, and perhaps and third or fourth. It's that good. We had heard for so many years that Iceland would "break the bank" - we were so pleased that this hotel was an excellent value and we would definitely stay there again. There is one thing which would have improved our stay, and that was there is no restaurant whatsoever operating following the buffet breakfast. The bar could have used a few edibles for evening on a freezing cold night.,
