I just stayed there for the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival. It was part of a package deal with Icelandair (the best airline!). The room was clean, well appointed and a simple modern design. There was plenty of space. I requested a higher floor because I was traveling alone and wanted a quiet spot. My request was met, and despite the notorious Iceland night life, I slept peacefully. The breakfast was laid out well and included much variety. It was better than two other spreads from hotels I stayed in during previous trips there.
The desk staff was fantastic---professional and helpful. When I arrived at 8:45am, the type of room I requested was not ready, and I was weary from the red eye flight. I asked if another room was available, and the woman at the desk said there were other rooms but they would not be what I wanted/requested. She was clear, and I trusted that it would be better to wait for the room I wanted, so as I was about the check my bags with her, she told me that the room would be ready in 45 minutes rather than hours later because someone had just checked out. She knew I wanted a shower and the settle in. I was not obnoxious and she was helpful. Icelanders are very helpful people, and I recommend that American travelers there act in kind in order to be met in the process.
