My first priority in choosing a hotel anywhere is to find a centrally located hotel in a quiet area. The Arnarhvoll was indeed quiet and had an excellent location with a harbor view. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived at 1:30 a.m., bleary-eyed (but the sun had only just set). The women at the front desk were always pleasant and helpful, most especially the night clerk, Ellen (?). The waitresses in the Sky Bar, where we had a light meal, were also delightful. However, the room was dark and extremely small, and I say this as someone who is accustomed to small rooms in European hotels. It was difficult to find space to put our luggage, which was only one carry on bag each. The water in the shower was barely lukewarm. Breakfast was a free for all, as everyone had to eat at the same time in order to make their tour pick up. When we did return late in the day after a long bus tour, our room had not been made up. It seems that we didn't make the maid's list because we had checked in the wee hours of that same day. The receptionist offered to come make up the room right then, as the cleaning staff had gone home, but I just asked for fresh towels and let it go. All in all, for the price, approximately $275/night, the value was simply not there.
