The room here was very nice and we found the staff to be very polite and helpful. The wireless internet was fast and it was easy to get connected. The room was clean and the staff did a great job keeping it clean. The bathroom was large as was the tub.
One issue we found during our stay was that the room would get uncomfortably warm. We kept the window open for the duration of our stay and that helped a lot. However, the rub was that since it never got dark outside we closed the curtains at night. The curtains were great for keeping the light out, but also did a great job at keeping out the cool breeze. So, most nights around 4 or 5 am we had to open the curtains to cool the room down, and let the light in as well. My girlfriend had a sleeping mask that worked well for her, and I used a pillow. Eventually, I think we both just got used to sleeping with a bit of daylight. The other con was some mornings the planes landing at Reykjavik Airport were very loud coming in and could be a rude awakening. This wasn't very often, and I think any hotel in the city center would have this issue.
The hotel was walking distance to everything; restaurants, bars, shopping and the harbor. We booked several of our daytrips through Iceland Excursions. Their office was one block away from the hotel, which was great for last minute bookings or changes. Also, we could walk to the pickup point instead of waiting for a bus.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again in the future.
