I would recommend this hotel for its great location. Within walking distance to shops harbor restaurants and more...
The breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, fresh bread, cheese, ham, fruits, and more.
The staff were pleasant & helpful. Our room is in an older section of the hotel the beds were comfortable.

They are currently doing renovations so I think the older section will be much nicer in the future..

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with friends

We stayed for three nights in the Plaza 22-25 November 2013 as part of a Groupon deal. The hotel is fine, well located for restaurants and shops. The room (462) was quite basic but comfortable and clean. We asked for a quiet room which is what we got, but the view was disappointing - looking straight into a block of flats! You can get free wife and BBC and ITV channels on the TV should this be of interest. I have to say they were quite stingey with the complimentary coffee (1 sachet per person per day) and the tea was of the herbal variety which was quite revolting! Breakfast was adequate, not the best I have ever had but plenty of variety. Try to get down to breakfast before 9am as its a bit of a bunfight after this time, and some of the table layouts are remininscent of a school dining hall! The receptionists are mostly helpful, if a little disinterested at times (apart from Hilmar who was great).

One important point I would make is don't go there expecting to see the Northern Lights, we were booked on the Grayline tour via Groupon and every night for three nights it was cancelled. In fact on the first evening we sat outside the hotel for 30 minutes waiting for our pick up which never came. Eventually I went to check at Reception and was informed that it had been cancelled earlier in the day. This was a shame as we have rushed dinner to get back to the hotel for 730pm. It would have been nice if we had been informed of this via a note under the room door or equivalent so we could plan our evening.

Theres no getting away from the fact that Iceland is expensive, but if you are prepared to hunt it out you can find reasonably priced food and drink. Soft drinks are a rip off, as a non drinker I got wise to this and asked for water with meals FOC, which by the way is the best tap water I have ever tasted! As for lager expect to pay around 900 krona for a pint, but we did find a small bar which was serving it for 400 krona,(its near the Danish Open Sandwich restaurant).

We checked out for a very early flight and there was a few croissants, coffee and juice laid on in the bar but that was it. We ate on the flight in the end, which was actually quite tasty for a change!

We enjoyed the Whale watching tour, we didn't see any whales - plenty of dolphins though. It was very rough and I would definately recommend taking travel sickness tablets at least 2 hours before you climb aboard. There were a lot of people looking very green around the gills on our trip even though the tour operator hand sea sickness tablets out free of charge!

The bus ride from the airport to the centre of Reykjavik is pretty unexciting, I would recommend that you pay a little extra and get dropped/picked up at your hotel as the bus station is quite a trek out of town.

In essence I would say plan your days well beforehand, make sure you read the tours small print about ringing 24 hours before to confirm etc, and enjoy Iceland!

Room Tip: if you want a quiet room ask for one on floors four or five in the new part of the hotel, the view is not great but it is quiet!

Stayed here as part of Groupon deal. location was fabulous - walked everywhere in town. Room was basic, nothing fancy, but clean and served our,purposes. Nice lobby and good breakfast buffet. We had asked for a king bed so we were given a room on top floor and it was a double-queen - not two twins pushed together, so we were lucky. Staff could not have been nicer. We had a problem with our TV and they offered to move us to another room but it was our last night by then so we did not want to move.

Room Tip: Ask for a king bed so you will hopefully get a room that does NOT have two twins pushed together, even if it it not king sized.

So convenient for restaurants and site seeing. Modern hotel and free wifi. Warm rooms and cosy bar. Some rooms better than others so don't be afraid to ask to change rooms! Taxi rank right outside is a bonus

The hotel itself is in a great location. Walking distance to everything you need. Tons of restaurants near by, a bar inside the hotel.
The only downfall is the construction going on, we had to change rooms because our first room was simply too loud. We couldn't even talk to each other. We moved into one of the rooms in the other building. It was quite the journey to get to all the time, but very quiet once we got there. Much appreciated.
The night time front desk guy, Hilmar, provided the best service I have ever had in a hotel. He made reservations for us, he brought some things to our room when requested, gave us great tips about where to go and even had to step in as the bartender sometimes. Amazing guy!

Room Tip: The room is the "dungeon" are harder to get to but worth the walk. 131-139 I believe
