A great experience made all the better by Thor and the wonderful staff of the hotel. I visited September 15 - 22, 2011 with two friends, all of us from the United States. The hotel is centrally located, easily accessible for walking and driving. The flybus stops there.The rooms and amenities are bright, clean and foundamentally sound in every basic way. The price is also just right. The hotel is close enough to walk everywhere and far enough away to escape any noise from downtown. The staff is helpful and friendly. Do not hesitate to ask questions. They are problem solvers who are conscious of your budget and who know the city and the country, especially Thor.
We used Reykjavik as a base exploring the city and driving to Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, Selfoss, southern coastal road to Vik, Stykkisholmur and the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The country is a photographer's dream and the people of Iceland are friendly, forthright and speak English well. The weather went from rainy to grogeous blue sunny skies. The local restuarants vary in quality and price but there is something for everyone. Thor and his staff were most helpful with recommendations, reservations and the little insights which make a trip memorable. For example Thor directed me to Bobby Fischer's chair. You do know who Bobby Fischer is, don't you?
