We booked this hotel as a bit of a budget option and we weren't disappointed with what we received. Bearing in mind how expensive Iceland is, I was happy with this hotel choice.
I stayed with my sister in a twin room and the room was small, the beds were fairly small and the shower room was also rather compact.
In our room we had a kettle and complimentary tea and coffee which was nice. We had a TV that worked, as well as a clock radio. WIFI is also free in this hotel which is great.
In the shower room, washing your face using the basin can be a challenge as there is a shelf immediately above the basin which gets in the way. It can also be tight getting round the toilet into and out of the shower. However, we had hot water and there were also some complimentary toiletries if you wished to use them.
We had breakfast included in our stay, it's a basic continental type breakfast but perfectly adequate. Not a great selection if you need to follow a gluten-free diet but there is cheese, some fruit and some meats.
The reception staff were fabulous, really friendly and keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. One of them even rushed out to our coach for our day trip as I'd left my hat on a sofa in the lobby.
The hotel is located in walking distance of the main street for restaurants, etc. albeit at the "wrong" end but it takes about 25 mins from the hotel to walk the entire length of the street so it's hardly far.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget who just wants somewhere friendly to rest their head at the end of a day. If you're a light sleeper, perhaps take earplugs as there's a little street noise and I found my eye mask useful to block out street light which seeped around the edges of the blackout curtains.
