After reading the reviews posted on Trip Advisor, which we read after booking a package we were concerned about what the Hotel is like. However although the comments that the rooms could be refurbished and updated are true we were pleasantly surprised.
Firstly the staff were superb, helpful, friendly patient and nothing seemed too much trouble, this includes the bar and restaurant staff.
The standard rooms were a good size, agreed they need a coat of paint and the bathrooms need updating but they were clean and comfortable especially the bed. Everything worked well including WiFi.
The food at the bar and the restaurant was excellent and good value for Iceland prices, especially the Buffet Breakfast and Dinner.
We did not try the grill which does looks quite expensive.
The only downside was the hotel rooms are being updated at the moment (Jan 2013) and there is some noise from builders/workmen, although this never started before 9am and always finished before 5pm. Perhaps management could ensure rooms are not allocated above or under current workmen.
The Location of the Hotel is very good it is at most 10 minutes walk to Reykjavik city center.
We would recommend this hotel.
