Other reviews catch a lot of helpful information (mountain view room, very helpful Shaun, not much in the way of food or activities nearby). The city bus does stop just at the hotel entrance, runs frequently, and goes by the Reykjavik Excursions tour center. Icelandic Excursions/Grey Line will pick up at the hotel. Really good, fresh breakfast. With that and a nice lunch, we were quite happy with delicatessen from the nearby grocery store for dinner (hanging a cloth bag out our window for refrigeration). So if you want a relaxed time with day trips, it's a great place. I would suggest that you start here, then choose a place in the north (you can catch the bus at the hotel entrance) or southeast coast for the rest of your Iceland experience.
