I was in Reykjavik in March and I was able to book this hotel at a very reasonable rate. It was much less than the major American hotel chain in town and was located centrally in town. I'd definitely stay here again. I gave it a very good rating for the value, cleanliness, proximity to downtown, and friendliness of staff. I wouldn't label this as a luxury hotel, but it is definitely very comfortable and modern for its price point. I prefer to stay at Starwood hotels (Westins, W, etc) and this hotel met my standards.
I would've given them an excellent if the restroom was a little larger. The size was fine for me, it may be a bit cramped for a larger person. But my feedback is based on the amount of counter space :) It was ok since the desk was close by so I was able to use that as my vanity table. This is nothing out of the ordinary for European or Nordic hotels. I have come to expect less counter space in these countries.
The hotel staff, locals, and tour guides have all said that the water is fresh water and safe to drink right out of the tap. There's no need to buy bottled water for the hotel. I'm from California, so it's difficult for me to trust that. But just an FYI.
I didn't get a chance to eat at SNAPS downstairs, but I remember it being packed every night I was there.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend and stay there again. It's a block away from the main drag downtown.
