The hotel has an excellent buffet breakfast including cold cuts, cheese, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, bread/toast, and waffles. There was also Skyr and something described as "sour milk" which when the two are combined is similar to the consistency and taste of American branded yogurt. Skyr is the traditional Icelandic yogurt but by itself is thicker and less tart.
The rooms look very much like the pictures online. They are spacious with closet, armchairs, desk, and a refrigerator, microwave, and small electric stove. The city of Hafnarfjordur is interesting on its own right and the hotel can sell you a day pass for all of the bus routes in Reykjavik. As a tourist it is convenient not having to worry about correct change or getting on the wrong bus or going the wrong way. The number 1 route has stops right by the hotel and it goes to the central bus station.
