I stayed here twice over a seven day period at either end of a recent climbing trip in Iceland. The hotel is perfectly located just a couple of minutes walk from the main shopping / restaurant areas. There is an excellent fine dining Indian restaurant just 100 metres up the road. See reviews for Austur India.
Both suites allocated to me were spotless, very well appointed and the WiFi is fast and included in the room rate. For me, it was ideal to have a well stocked fridge and the ability to enjoy a light breakfast in my room before heading out to explore this fantastic country. The ground floor room opposite the reception desk is particularly spacious and is accessible for wheel chair users but it does suffer a little from the noise from the street during the 'lively' Icelandic weekend.
All the staff I met were friendly, professional and couldn't have been more helpful. They all speak excellent English. This property is managed in partnership with the Residence Hotel at no 45 on the same street. I asked the hotel to arrange transfers to and from the airport which is a little expensive but worked absolutely smoothly and avoids the hassle of waiting for the airport bus and then transferring to local taxi when you arrive in Reykjavik.
All in all, I really enjoyed the facilities provided at the hotel and particularly the friendliness and professionalism of the team. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel but my preference would be for a room on an upper floor. I look forward to a return visit with my partner later in the year.
