This is a nice hotel. Efficient and helpful. Good lobby, fast elevators.We had seen a few other hotels but this I feel was good for ease into town, not near an airport (noise wise), and a 10 minute walk to the largest Mall in Iceland. I heard the rooms with odd numbers were larger but we did not think it made a difference,...better views and larger but when are you in the room in daylight anyway? Iceland is a place to go to be outdoors most of the time.
The beds a little odd. Either two singles or a double with two single duvets on it. One sheet may have helped to go below the two single duvets (if your a couple you may need it). Takes a bit to figure out the TV and the shower handles. Decent amenities, hairdryer and soaps. The fridge small but useful.
Nice lobby, they all worked hard at the front desk and to book trips. The restaurant had good food yet pricey like everything else is in Iceland. Get a deal for breakfast if you can before you check in as I think it was $27 a person and we heard if you can get it included it is cheaper overall.
The staff were good at the front desk and mostly everywhere else, but the house keeping not the greatest. We never had a full clean up in the room, often cups and dishes sat in the hall for a couple of days, new glasses in the bathroom not replaced and the towels were not given to us new unless we left them in a heap on the floor. I would just say "very little house keeping". The bar tenders in the bar a bit slow also. Borrow glasses from other places. Buy alcohol at a store or mall.
We often brought our own drinks down to start the eve in the bar. The happy hour is amazing with half price wine and alcohol, the place starts hopping. Small place but a big bar at the same time, people dressed well and all looked good and looked like they were having a good time. A great time to buy high end wines when the price is half at happy hour. A great start and end to an evening to sit there and people watch.
All and all, a good place to stay if you get a package deal. If you want a high end dinner, the Vox restaurant was different, pricey but good,,..It will be on the restaurant review.
I doubt the extra price for a larger room would be that great of a difference. Get the highest floo...
