My wife and I stayed in Room 413 for three nights in June 2013. I was told by the desk clerk upon check in that Room 413 "is the nicest suite in the hotel." If that is true, this is truly an overrated hotel, and I believe I paid a room rate for a 4 star hotel when the actual hotel is a clean 2 star hotel. The decor of the hotel is tired and worn, and the exterior is ugly. It needs to be gutted and remodeled. The rooms have maroon early 1980s carpet and maroon very worn leather sofas, with early 1980s brass lamps. This may have been a stylish place in 1980. It is not in 2013. The hotel is clean, and the staff was generally helpful. But we tried to have a drink in the bar one evening and were ignored for 15 minutes by unfriendly bar staff and finally left without a drink. The included breakfast is adequate but the room in which one has breakfast has a whole bunch of big tables in it, and is physically difficult to manuever in. The location of the hotel is good, on the edge of central Reykjavik and one can walk to most sites. But most hotels in central Reykjavik are walking distance to the sites. I will definately not stay in this hotel again.
