Just returned from a long weekend break to this Hotel - please do not read the negative reviews!
Having stayed in Iceland previously I found the Hotels in the centre of Reykjavik to be a little lacking in character - this place is certainly not.
The whole place is based on what its called - Viking Hotel. The staff are dressed accordingly and yes, its a little dark inside but it all adds to the ambience.
The staff are extremely helpful and we expected prices to be high in the restaurant but the portion sizes more than make up for that and the food is excellent.
The centre of Reykjavik is only half an hour away by public transport which is very reasonably priced. On boarding the buses ( only approx. 3 minutes away from the front of the Hotel ) the drivers are more than happy to issue exchange tickets, valid for 2 hours in case you choose to break your journey and get back on another bus.
We booked a superior room which was perfectly clean and well furnished albeit the bathroom was a little small.
Tea & coffee making facilities are provided in the room , when supplies run out - just ask at reception for me & its immediately taken care of free of charge - what more could you ask!
A great place to stay for those with a sense of humour!!
Already looking forward to a return trip.
