We arrived at the Icelandair Hotel Natura in Reykjavik. We had a standard twin room (was 2 single beds!), room was pretty small but equipped well. Staff were friendly and breakfast was fantastic all you could ask for and help yourself to a selection of fruit, meat, cereal, cooked breakfast, tea, coffee juice. We went B&B and recommend that you select this option as it was good value for money. There are a lot of reviews that the hotel is within 20-30 minutes walking from the centre of town. I would not walk it, purely because the area between the hotel and the city centre is pretty bare and definitely not for ladies to walk on the way back from a night out.
There is however a public bus which collects you outside the hotel and takes you to the bus station in Reykjavik and takes on 5-10 minutes. Every 30 minutes and reliable, only two things to point out is that the reception gives you a bus pass which they put 15,000 ISK on your room bill and so long as you return the pass this is then removed from your room bill the second thing to note is that the last bus back to the hotel is at 2345 each evening, therefore if you are staying out late it will be a taxi (which is expensive, just to warn you). The bus station is around a 10 minute walk past the main shopping area to get into the main centre of Reykjavik where all the shops and restaurants are. We recomment Vegabot and Buddha Cafe on the main stretch together with C is for Cookie for soup and a coffee (soup is 600 ISK and coffee around 450 ISK which I thought was excellent. For a two course meal in Reykjavik together with an alcoholic drink and a coffee we paid 30 per person which I thought was pretty good.
Not really a place for children but definitely for couples and friends (unless your children like going to cafes, shopping and very windy weather). Hotel staff were very friendly and informative when we had questions.
The bus station is very close to the hotel, which is a plus as this is where you are usually taken to first before starting a tour that you have arranged.
