We arrived at the hotel mid morning, in advance of check-in time. We were able to check-in, and since it was too early to get our room, the desk clerk immediately took our luggage and stored it safely.
The hotel is in a perfect, very central location in the heart of Reykjavik, and is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the city by walking which suits us. We came back to the hotel right after lunch and our room was ready.
The room is very Scandinavian; modern, having simplicity, minimalist and functional. The room had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. The desk ample. The room and its bathroom were spotless. The sink and shelving in the bathroom were small and barely adequate for the two of us. The WIFI Internet access in the room was strong and fast. The Internet is free with the room. We had no trouble streaming on my iPad in the room.
The blackout curtain effectively shut out the "midnight sun." There is no rug on the floor, so you might want to have slippers with you when you stay there, but the lack of rug helps ensure the room is really clean.
The staff at the front desk were very helpful in helping us find our way using the city map, and making restaurant suggestions and reservations for us. We didn't use them to help us book any tours as we were set for that.
The breakfast buffet at the hotel is wonderful. The choices are great and the food is fresh. I especially liked being able to make my own waffles using their pair of waffle irons in the dining room.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel when I return to Iceland.
