A very good hostel-style hotel, very reasonably priced. Walking distance from main street, the beautiful church, and the bay. I had a single room which had tea/coffee making facilities, hand basin and fridge, and the most deliciously comfortable bed; the shared bathroom was close by. Staff were very helpful and well-informed, and breakfast was excellent.
Overall Reykjavik and Iceland are very well-organised for tourism. Buses pick up and deliver from tours and the airport - it was such a relief (as a sole traveller) to know that someone would pick me up at 4am for my flight and that I wouldn't have to try to arrange it myself. Tour guides and others are experts on the culture, history and geology of Iceland, and justifiably proud of their country.
I had a wonderful 5 days, helped by my stay at Hotel Floki, and hope to go back
