My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights while we visited Iceland. Originally we were only scheduled to stay for one. Unfortunately, our airline lost our luggage, inclusive of all our camping gear, and we were forced to stay another night. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating given our last-minute change of plans. They allowed us to stay in the same room and for the same rate. As our trip neared its end, we decided to come back to the city early and once again, 4th Floor was graciously able to accommodate our reservation and honored the originally booking price for our last two nights in the city.
We stayed in the "Economy" apartments across the street and they were MORE than sufficient. Our room included a full kitchen, television and bathroom. While it is a very "no frills" establishment, the point of staying there was not to spend a large quantity of time in our hotel room, it was to be in a decent location, close to the sights and sounds of Reykjavik. You should not expect to walk into a top-of-the-line, modern room. This place provides you with the necessities... and that includes breakfast each morning. If you want a five-star hotel, you will pay five-star prices. And in a place like Reykjavik, that means hundreds of dollars per night. We did our research and knew what to expect. I believe 4th floor is "as advertised".
In terms of location, it's quite central. If you want to get anything close to a good night's sleep on a Friday or Saturday, a place like 4th Floor is where you'll want to be. In other words, you do NOT want to be on the main drag when runtur is happening. It's loud and continues into the early morning hours. 4th Floor is located just off Laugavegur, just far enough to be slightly shielded from the commotion. Of course, that's not to say that it will be perfect silence, but the noisier bars are a block or two away from where you'll sleep.
Iceland is not a cheap vacation, so if you're looking to stretch your dollars and not sacrifice too much on your accommodations, 4th Floor is a good option. If you're like us and will spend most of your time in tents camping around the ring road, you'll quickly realize a soft bed and a hot shower will always be a welcomed luxury.
