We expected much more from one of the most expensive hotels in our Iceland trip. This hotel needs an urgent facelift. Everything looks so old! The couches in the lobby look 50 years old, the entrance door look the same, the white walls and ceiling look as if they are constructed of long wood planks which were once used to build shelters in my country…. And finally, the TV set in the room was at least 20 y/o.
At first we received a room with two twin beds, which was close to the dining room air vents, and all the cooking smell went into the room. We asked to move to a double room with no smells, but they were fully booked. As compensation they gave us a complimentary dinner. On the second night they moved us to a better room. So although the hotel looks aged and old-fashioned, service was very good.
One more thing that must be mentioned: Wi-fi in the rooms is not free! It costs about 12USD for 24 hours, 24USD for 48 hours (negotiable….), Come- on guys, we are in 2013; not in the 90's! Wi-fi should be free!
