I spent four nights spread out over three separate stays at this hotel. I enjoyed not only the cleanliness of the rooms but also the friendliness of the staff.
SERVICE: The daytime reception desk workers are/look quite young but they provided prompt and knowledgeable service, facilitated such things as early check-in and late checkout, and were very accommodating.
INTERNET: Wireless internet service was spotty at times but wired service is always available in the room.
BREAKFAST: The breakfast was very basic (avoid the watery juice) but filling. Tea selection wasn't great and the lemon tea tasted exactly like green tea for some reason.
ROOMS: The rooms were simple, clean and tidy, and the beds were very comfortable. Housekeeping kept the bathroom clean but the beds were never made up again. No problem! Hot water varied by room depending on the controls. The in-room kitchen was adequate although a good scrubbing of pots, pans and utensils after each guest leaves would be useful as some items had not been properly cleaned by previous tenants. Also, the size of pots and pans varied by room. Scrubbing of the floor in front of the kitchenette should also be done because when I first went to the kitchen area in my room my socks stuck to whatever had been spilled there previously.
LOCATION: Don't stay here over a Holiday weekend unless you have a car, as buses don't run on holidays. Walking to town is possible but it will take you a very long time. When buses are running you can catch one near the hotel with no difficulty at all. The #1 bus will take you past Kringlan mall and straight to Central Reykjavik within 20 minutes
Overall, this place was well worth the money and I would stay here again. If you don't mind the distance, I would highly recommend this place!
