originally booked for 6 nights and it being February in Reykjavik got a fantastic rate; so I wasn't expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised from the moment the shuttle from Kevlavik pulled up outside. Considering the great deal I got I was expecting run-down/in a seedy part of town - it was neither!
The Metropolitan is well-maintained and comfortable and as clean as everything is in Iceland!. The staff are friendly and helpful. My room was on the 4th floor and had captivating views of snow-capped mountains across the roof-tops of the hip Reykjavik 101 neighbourhood (see photo).
Unfortunately, I had to curtail my visit (after 4 nights) due to illness but would stay there again if I ever make it to Reykjavik again.
