First off if you are person who's number one criteria for a hotel is location, this is your baby! It's got a great location in the heart of Reykajavik and everything is walkable from the front door.
The hotel is small (most hotels in Iceland are). My first problem was a large suitcase and navigating the stairs. There are stairs coming in and stairs getting to the elevator. When I got up to the check-in I found a very helpful desk clerk. She was friendly and gave me all kinds of helpful information for my short 24 hour stay in Reykjavik. She even booked a day trip to the Blue Lagoon as I was standing there. Very helpful and great service.
My room was very small, about the size of a budget room on a cruise ship or a college dorm room. It was sparse. The bathroom only had a shower and it too was very tight. However it was clean. I had a nice view of the street below.
The problem was that you think of Reykjavik as a quiet town, but this is the center of town and late into the night people walking under my window screaming (mostly American teenagers) kept me awake. Plus the bed was not so comfortable and a very narrow single bed.
The next morning I found the breakfast to be delicious and a fun view of the roof tops of Reykjavik. Overall the hotel had both hits and misses. It was fine for one night, but I might look else where for a longer stay.
