The hotel is about 3 kilometers to the centre of downtown Reykjavik but there is a free shuttle service during the day ( but book it at reception) although it only goes INTO town and not back. Taxis back are about 2000Kr but hey ho, the bus was free.
The room was great and we didn't mind the lobby view as it did give us a WiFi connection from the lobby which is free - inside the room you pay a premium.
The breakfast was great - enough choice for most with cereal, scrambled egg, boiled egg, bacon, small sausages, cheeses, ham, pastrami, breads and fruit.
Reception staff were great too and helped out whenever asked. The lobby bar has a happy hour from 5pm till 7pm. This is good, as most alcohol in Iceland is dead expensive so any chance of getting it at half price is worth it.
We did note on Hotels.com that it had a sauna but this was quite expensive if you decided to use it.
We'll probably stay closer to town next time, but it was good to have a sea front walk from town to the hotel and to see all the scenery and art works along the route - something we'd have missed if we were staying in town.
