I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early Sept 2013.
Good location - Less than 10 mins walk from city centre and about 3 mins walk to the Grayline Iceland Excursion bus terminal. So if you have arranged some local tours there (or airport bus), it is very convenient.
Nice room - Room is clean and spacious. Have a little kitchen so you can prepare a breakfast. Like a suite rather than a hotel room. Comfortable bed and a flat screen TV with satelite and cable.
Nice staff - Friendly and helpful. We have missed a local tour due to a delay of flight and the staff arrange another pickup for me.
No elevator - you have to move your luggage around yourself.
No staff at night - You will have your own key to open the main door (hotel door) and your room door. 1 key do all and so security may be a problem you can imagine.
Advice - I have a room in the basement. Please ask for one in the first or second floor.
