Hotel Klettur had the honor of being my first Icelandic hotel experience, and here are my impressions: Overall it was modern, minimalist, and aesthetically appealing. Lobby area is tight if you have several guests trying to check in/out, but they do have a large, locked closet to keep store your luggage if you arrive too early. The elevator is quick.
Standard rooms are smaller than in the USA, but we weren't expecting anything beyond a clean, comfortable place to sleep. Our king-sized bed was actually 2 beds pushed together, and we each had our own twin-sized comforter. No sheets besides the fitted sheet, which we found to be typical at all the other 4 Icelandic hotels. My only complaint is that the comforter's duvet was not breathable- I awoke both mornings drenched in sweat even though the room temperature was normal. Bare, clean floor; the bonus is that it's heated in the bathroom, which has a glass shower with no curtain.
Reception staff is knowledgeable, but they seemed a bit harried and impatient every time we spoke with them. Breakfast in the morning offers a variety of choices that are typical at most of the others, and the large, sleek dining room is on the bottom floor. Most breakfasters bussed themselves.
The location is convenient for the able-bodied. A quick walk will get you to the main shopping district, but because of the construction next door, you might walk in the street for a little section to get from one place to another.
