The Leifur Eiriksson is a 'no frills' basic hotel very centrally located opposite the Hallgrímskirkja ..... the church spire/tower being a perfect landmark! The location is ideal for walking around Reykjavik, close to main shopping area, restaurants, museums etc. The hotel is only a short distance from the bus terminus and mini buses provide efficient transfers.
The hotel is basic and is ideal if you only intend to sleep there! The rooms are adequate, beds comfortable enough, and very good heating, bathroom very small, but adequate for a couple of nights - there are no toiletries etc provided. The breakfast was fine and hot drinks were available 24/7 - which made up for no coffee facilities in rooms. The reception were freindly and helpful.
All told a good location for visiting the city ... but if you intend to spend time in the hotel then you would be disappointed. It is basic and good value, fine just to sleep in. Would I go back? For a couple of nights yes .... for longer maybe not!More
