This was my third time in Reykjavik and I think I've found the hotel I'll keep coming back to. The location is perfect, close enough to the centre that you feel part of things, but far enough out that you don't get any of the noise, and no huge hills to battle to get to everywhere!
My family and I stayed for three nights last month, we had two rooms close to each other on the ground floor and despite looking out on to the street on a weekend were perfectly quiet. Front desk staff, while not the most outgoing, were very helpful when we needed help chasing down restaurant reservations, inquiring about northern lights or booking spas.
The lack of free wifi was a little bit of a bother, but seeing as there are two cafes opposite that offer it and two computers in the lobby it's not a deal breaker.
We got a fabulous deal on a price comparison website - half of that the hotel was quoting if booking direct - so do shop around.
