Most Icelanders are a really nice bunch of people that are very happy to look after you. In this hotel they really don't seem to give too much of a toss, they are polite enough but that's all. Apart from the blond girl with glasse who met us on the first night.
The wifi cost 2,000 kroner -about £11- for 24 hours and is unreliable. The Tv is okay but the Brit channels cannot always be received.
If you want some comfort and a TV make sure you get a de luxe room, if you want a proper double bed and not 2 singles pushed together then go for a superior room. Do not stay in a basic room unless you are skint or desperate.
It's a good location but has little else to recommend it; it seems to get a very high turnover of coach party people and this may be at the root of the staff indifference
