I'll list the pros and cons of the hotel, giving the information that I was looking for before I left...
-Great (free) pool/sauna - we spent a good couple of hours in there every night
-Really good breakfast with particularly tasty pancakes
-Fridge in the room
-Reception were helpful and polite
-No free wifi (though the Reykjavic Excursion buses all have it and so does the rest of the city)
-Really hot rooms that really stifled us and we couldn't open our window
-It took ages to get information from the lady in the excursion area - really slow
-The hotel is a good 30 minutes from the main shops in Reykjavic and we were walking pretty fast
-Airport right outside the room - no planes at night but they start up pretty early in the morning
-Tiny rooms and uncomfortabe beds with horrible pillows
Overall I generally enjoyed my stay, but mostly due to the spa: if it didn't have this then I would find a different hotel next time. It was a shame that the Northern Lights trips were cancelled for four nights in a row (every night we were there) as we booked a trip with a tour included and you don't get anything back if they don't run. If you like a pool then go here, but if you aren't bothered then I'm sure there are better hotels nearer the city.
