We were recently due to stay at Hotel Leifur Eiriksson having booked through a package offered by IcelandAir. Upon arrival we were given some vague excuse about one of the rooms being 'broken' and bumped to another hotel elsewhere in the city on the basis that this would be a free-upgrade. Having read some of the reviews on this site, elsewhere and discussed this with the manager at the hotel we were sent to then it's apparent this is a relatively common occurrence when booking rooms at Leifur Eiriksson and not an isolated incident.
Our 'upgrade' turned out to be Hotel Cabin, Reykjavik, which was an uninspiring but functional hotel some way out of town (see Hotel Cabin Reviews for more details). If you do get to stay at Hotel Leifur Eiriksson then the location is pretty spot-on for the centre and sights of Reykjavik. I guess I can't really comment on the rest of the facilities at this hotel as we never got to stay there!
Definitely not one to book on the basis of the convenient location alone.
