We stayed at the Natura February 19 - 24 as part of an Icelandair package. The check-in/reception can get very busy when the Flybus arrives since a lot of Icelandair flights land within 30 minutes or so of each other (and this hotel is included with a lot of Icelandair packages since they own it). Despite the crowds of people arriving, check-in was fast and the front desk agents were very nice. We decided to upgrade to an Executive room and were able to get into our room immediately (we arrived at approximately 8:30 AM). Although the exterior of the hotel is kind of dated, the interior is very modern and inviting.
Our room was on the fourth floor with a fantastic view of the Perlan and downtown Reykjavik. The room was huge with a king size bed and large sitting area. The bathroom looked somewhat institutional with it's white tiles, but it was large and very clean. The water pressure was excellent and the water left my hair and skin feeling very soft.
We had access to the fourth floor lounge and enjoyed the free beer and soda.
There is a city bus stop across from the hotel that runs more often than the hotel's shuttle (for those that have complained about the frequency of the shuttle). We walked into town and it was an easy 20 minute walk. The walk up to the Perlan is really nice too and only takes about 7 minutes.
We had breakfast at the buffet one morning and found the selection to be extensive and good. None of the staff gave us any grief when we took a few biscuits with us to have later during our tours - though I did feel kind of naughty doing it!
I would definitely stay here again and would love to return to Iceland!
