The hotel is not 4 star...it´s more like a 2/3 and quite dated. If you go on a weekend expect to be awake until 5am from the bars on the street! Initially we were given a room opposite the 24 hour reception but after complaining we were kindly moved to the top of the building on the side away from the road. Even with ear plugs in I could hear the sound of the music although it wasn´t too bad to prevent us sleeping from up there. The room was cleaned every day but I found tomato sauce stains on my actual pillow and make-up stain on the clean towel but these were quickly replaced without issue. The breakfast was OK (fruit, toast, hard boiled egg, yoghurt and cereal only) but could get boring after a couple of days. The location of the hotel was on the main street with plenty of restaurants and shops on the same street. Don´t go to Reykjavik expecting a nice city break.....once you´ve seen the Geysir, the waterfall, the Blue Lagoon and the pleasant and unusual scenery there is nothing else!! If you like hiking and outdoor activities then this is a good holiday (and a good base) for you but don´t go in winter!!! There is not much to do if the weather is bad. The restaurants are all over priced and poor quality....sorry for the harsh review but we didn´t really enjoy our stay there.
