Great hotel about 15 minutes walk from centre of city. Good quality modern hotel with excellent public areas. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Hotel is very close to public baths and hot pool only 2 Euro entry. Hotel bike hire is a great way to get around the city. Avoid the hotel gymn as charge for single use is £20 per person.

good hotel as a base... the thermal pools only a short walk away and only cost about 70p to go in...open until about 10.30pm and 24 hours over summer.
Hotel has all usual facilities - 3 free computers with internet connection.
Breakfast was a bit boring
only 5 tv channels - only english one is sky news
movies cost 2500Ikn
can leave your luggage for no cost
about a 20 minute walk to down town where the nightlife is
black out curtains in summer still let a lot of light in (24 daylight then)
windows always close themselves so makes rooms very very hot in summer
all in all one of the best that we stayed in over the 2 weeks holiday

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, spatious rooms, clean, nordic decoration, hefty breakftast but a bit too far away to walk into the downtown if you are short of time. They do offer a complimentary shuttle downtown 3 times a day in the summer. Excellent for conferences with top of the line technology and equipment.
Free interent in the lobby but not in the bedrooms, which does not make a really big difference. Toilettries added every day. Bring your toothbrush!

The Grand hotel is a modern building grafted on to a slightly older hotel, with which it shares breakfast and restaurant facilities. I have visited twice this year, each time for several nights. The hotel is a little way out of the centre of town - a 20-minute brisk walk, or 5 minutes in a taxi - close to the Hilton.

Reception staff varied between the very helpful indeed and the downright unhelpful For example, tracking down a missing shirt from the laundry proved very difficult for the evening staff, but check-in and out was simple.

Rooms are quite spacious and pleasantly furnished in light wood, and the beds were very comfortable. Decor was fine. Bathroom facilities were excellent, once one got used to the innovative arrangement of the shower. The internet connections are slow - endemic in Iceland - and not cheap.

I was disappointed at the standard of the room cleaning, which was not what I would have expected in a hotel of this quality (used glasses were left untouched, for example). The public areas were spacious and airy (with interesting stained glass), and in good condition, as was the spa - which was excellent.

Food was patchy. The main restaurant in the evening provided good but pricey dishes. The food available in the bar area was cheaper and quite good. Breakfast facilities were shared with the other hotel; breakfast was similar to other hotels in Iceland - a buffet, mainly cold but with a few hot dishes available. Not bad.

Absolute a hotel with a professional and international staff and attitude. It appeals mostly to bussiness people and not turists. It is also expensive.

LOCATION
About 15-20 min. walk from city center.

ROOMS
large rooms with huge beds. Some rooms only have windows to the lobby. It a pretty depressing. it feels like being in prison because you cannot open the windows. at 3 oclock in the night some drunk, boisy people came back to the hotel and because we had room in the lobby-site we woke up.


SERVICE
nice and quick staff in restaurant

AMENITIES
all you would find on big international hotels: luggage storage, wellness and spa, restaurant, free internet access in the lobby, bar etc.

Restaurant and breakfast
very quick serving of food in the restaurant.
Breakfast great with egg, bacon etc.
