I'd definitely recommend the Lind hotel if you're planning a stay in Reykjavik.
First off the location is very good , located just minutes from the main shopping street :Laugavegur in Reykjavik. Close enough that when you get back tired and hungry from a days sightseeing or tour you are minutes away from great cafes , bars and restaurants. But far enough that you are not disturbed by noise at nighttime.
The rooms , although not large, are bright and have ajustable heating (from when you come back cold from a days walking!) .The beds are comfortable, extra pillows provided in a large wardrobe (with safe). The bathroom, although small is adequate and comes fitted with a hairdryer. Be warned, the shower water does have a sulphur-y smell, but aparently this is quite the norm for the area.
The hotel itself is clean and functional, and the reception staff are incredibly friendly and warm; Booking trips and giving advice where needed.
The breakfast is also good, a variety of items such as sauage , eggs and bacon or waffles for those who like a hot breakfast, or yogurt, cereals , pastries and fruit for those who prefer a lighter fare.
I would definitely stay at the Hotel Lind again.
