We ended up at the Grand as a result of being 'bumped' out of the Best Western, and declining their offer of a room at the Hotel Leifur Eirikson, which was not up to our standards. We are glad we held out and ended up at the Grand. No, it's not a 5-star hotel, the rooms - particularly in the older, 4-storey section, which according to the in-room hotel information guide, was a Holiday Inn - are tired. They may have been updated - well, they need updating again! Maybe the rooms in the tower are better. At least there was an in-room fridge. The room was a reasonable size. The bathroom definitely needs upgrading. The shower head came off the pole while I was trying to adjust it, I was almost injured as a result, and there seems to be no way to avoid flooding the floor while showering. However, we were satisfied that we ended up with a better room than the other hotels would have offered. It was quiet, the buffet breakfast offered far more than those at the other two hotels, and we found it a good location as we had a rental car, and spent 3 of our 4 days in Iceland driving to sites outside of Reykjavik, and thus found the location to be good for highway access. We also found the front desk staff to be quite helpful.
