A colleague of mine and I chose this hotel for a business trip because it offered the best price at time of booking. We had no idea about the geography of Reykjavík, and were first taken aback by the location: close to the international terminal of the domestic airport (yes, there is one!) but quite a walk from the town center (the hotel claims it's twenty minutes, it was more like forty for us). But once we acquired a working knowledge of the excellent bus network (and got a free travel card from the hotel), that turned out to be no problem. There is also what must be one of Reykjavíks best restaurants (Nauthóll) in walking distance.
Nice, really multilingual (not just English-speaking) and helpful staff, clean and spacious rooms, and a great breakfast buffet. I just wish the buffet had more Icelandic specialties; it was good European standard fare, but apart from skýr (almost fat-free and delicious Icelandic milk product) nothing that was local. But what about Icelandic bread specialties like rúgbrauð and the world-famous flatbraud?
For me, boiled eggs in a breakfast buffet are always a quality benchmark. Here they were both soft boiled (not hard) and not cold. Proof of the staff's looking after details.
Although the small domestic airplanes have their runway right behind the hotel, I did not hear one of them landing or taking off.
