This is a basic, clean and convenient hotel if you would like to explore Reykjavik for 5 days.
We booked deluxe double I think as we had a kettle for tea and coffee and plenty of floor space. The double bed was made up of two singles pushed together but was very comfortable. Only one pillow provided per person though, but reception are happy to provide extras if you ask.
Breakfast is a self-serving cold buffet and is the same every morning - a variety of tasty bread (which you can toast yourself), sliced cheese, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, hard boiled eggs, fruit, fruit, cereal and pickled herring. Admittedly, I got bored of this after 5 days, but there are plenty of places for a hot, cooked breakfast outside of the hotel. Reykjavik city centre is only a 5 minute walk.
The hotel lounge / bar area has free Wifi also, although lacked any atmosphere. However, a great place to have a pre-dinner drink - 1500ISK for 2 beers during 6pm - 8pm (Happy Hour gets extended until 10pm if the Northern Lights Tours are cancelled).
The staff were a bit hit and miss - some really friendly and helpful and others just going through the motions.
Overall, Hotel Klettur is a good value hotel for it's location. However, one thing to consider before booking this hotel is, either take a great set of noise-cancelling head phones or forget the late lie-ins completely. As mentioned by previous reviewers, there appears to be some long-term construction work happening right next to the hotel. The noise generally starts at around 8-8:30am during the weekdays.
