I stayed for 2 nights on arrival in Iceland and 1 night on departure. For Iceland it is not bad, or so I am told by veteran visitors there.
On arrival I was in 214, described as a "good room" by the receptionist. It was certainly very spacious, almost like a suite compared to the other rooms, some of which my fellow travellers described as pokey. The safe didn't work but everything else did. It has a basic, homely, slightly cheap feel to it. Not much more to say. It did the job, and for the money I think the quality was reasonable. Breakfast was a continental style buffet. Nothing spectacular but not bad.
On departure I had a much smaller room. That was after a room change because some inconsiderate and ignorant person had been smoking in the first one, despite it being a no smoking floor. The lift was also went out of order as I got into it, and there are no staff other than a receptionist so it wasn't much fun taking my heavy bags up 3 flights of stairs. A good cardio workout in the absence of a gym however!
The hotel is only a few minutes' walk from the centre of the town, so the location was pretty good, but that is true of nearly all hotels in Reykjavik. The area is not particularly inspiring - some pretty drab and run-down housing is the view from your window.
