This hotel was a pleasant surprise.
We booked a last minute 3 day break to Iceland on a whim because it was a cheap package booked through the Icelandair website, and a change of scenery. We spent our first night at this hotel. Ample parking and very easy to find from the road with sat nav even in the driving snow!
Reception staff - really very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable with some nice touches in terms of quality bathroom products and the shower was great. Beds were very conducive to sleep, which is the most important thing. It's opposite a small domestic airport so you get a little aircraft noise, but it wasn't during the hours you really want to sleep so it wasn't a problem.
The bar in the evening was a nice looking area but we didn't stay owing to a very drunk American tourist who was slurring loudly and talking a load of absolute **** which made the bar an undesirable place to spend time in - not the hotel's fault at all, although I hope they stopped serving him alcohol.
Breakfast was the usual buffet affair that you find in a tourist class hotels such as this - not great, but you fill yourself up with what you want and move on.
The only other minor drawback of the hotel is that it is not walkable to the centre of Reykjavik (it may not be far, but the roads are not pedestrian friendly), but it's only 5 minutes in a cab which are cheap and easy enough to come by. Both drivers we met were very friendly and helpful - another very nice surprise.
Iceland is a great country to visit, with very friendly people and good food, believe it or not, if you hunt it out. Go for it, and if this hotel is on your package itinerary then you needn't worry - it's absolutely fine.
