We arrived about 8:30 PM after a long drive from northern Iceland and found the hotel without any problems. As it was nearly dark the road signs were still visible and street lighting was adequate. The two gentlemen at the front desk were efficient and prompt with the paperwork and we were settled in our room in short order. The hotel was very quiet and clean with a good sized room including a small kitchen area. It is located in an area of the city lacking anything of interest for the tourist but that was not an issue for us as our need was to be able to get to the airport for an early flight. It was perfect for that.
The only negative was the sandwiches made for us in the morning since we were departing prior to when breakfast was served. The juice was very thin and was best not consumed. We do understand that it is impossible to serve every guest especially when hours are not convenient but a danish or croissant would have been nice.
