We stayed here initially for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to Iceland and then returned for another 2 nights. We booked through expedia initially and then the second time through the hotel website itself as the other sites were saying it was fully booked.
As a family of 3 we found the hotel was easy to get to following a late arrival via flybus and we were dropped off at the door at 1am. Unfortunately both times we stayed they hadn't put up the extra bed, a bit of a hassle on our initial stay. Our first room was on the 3rd floor and quite small (not kettle) but the second one was on the 6th floor, lovely views and much bigger with kettle!
Free car park next door was handy as we hired a car. Following recommendation from the receptionist we went out on the road to Thingviller (very easy) from the hotel with the hire car on our first evening and had an awesome sighting of the Northern Lights.
Hotel is also near Hllmeur (I think that's how it's written) a main bus station and easy walk to restaurants. It's not too near the harbor and the old town so is a bit of a walk, especially with children.
Would definitely stay here again and use it as a base for exploring. No problems with breakfast, building works or area.
