I stayed in room 209 - a single room for 7 nights at the end of April/beginning of May. The room was small but nicely decorated and clean and was perfectly adequate for me. It was however close to the lift and there was an ice making machine (and shoe buffer!) directly outside my room which were quite noisy. The room also had French doors opening onto a communal balcony which I thought was great at first, but quickly realised that it meant I had to close the wooden shutters and switch the lights on in the room if I wanted any privacy and it also attracted the smokers who thought nothing of smoking directly outside my room. Room service was great, they kept my room clean everyday and provided me with fresh towels everyday. The only thing that was lacking was tea/coffee making facilities, which I'd have appreciated after a long day of sight seeing in the rain!
The hotel itself is very conveniently located on the main shopping street in Reykjavik and is one of the hotels where the tour companies pick up from. The central location does have its downsides though. Although my room was at the back of the hotel I was still kept awake at the weekend by the bass of the music in a nearby nightclub. I sorely regretted forgetting my earplugs!
Breakfast was a Continental style buffet, which was nothing special but adequate and you can eat as much as you want, so it does set you up for the day. There are dozens of cafes in the area if you want anything different, and a lovely baker a short walk up the street.
Overall I was happy with my stay, especially as I got a very good rate through an online booking agency and if (when) I return to Reykjavik, I'd consider staying there again.
