We stayed here in May, and it was part of an Icelandair package that included flights and a golden tour trip. It was our first visit to Reykjavik, and won't be the last. The Hotel was not expensive, so we didn't expect 5 star quality, but we it did have, was ok. The Hotel was a short walk from bus terminal and in the other direction you could walk down to the town centre. Our room was in a separate block across the street, which we didn't expect, but had a good view of the cathedral and square from the window. You had to put your coat on to go across for breakfast, but that was only a minor inconvenience. The room was clean and tidy with adequate storage space. The bed was fine, I read other people were uncomfortable, but we had no issues, but I did ask for and got extra towels. The breakfast room got very busy as lots of people are going on tours at particular times so all breakfast say 45 mins before. We went early to avoid the crush.
The reception was staffed 24/7 and they all spoke excellent English so could help with all sorts of questions. The dining room and bedrooms all had free Wi-fi which was great - so you could book a car and plan trips will you were there.
There isn't any drinks facility in rooms but free tea/ coffee sorts of drinks were available in the dining room which was open all the time, and it also had an enormous TV with sky news playing so you could grab a coffee, connect to Wi-fi with your feet up and also watch the news. Lots of people were doing this and it was a friendly atmosphere.
I would stay here again. Looking at other hotel prices in the area this was an absolute bargain.
PS the hot water is direct from the ground and is very sulphurous - not good for hair condition, so rinse in cold if you can stand it:-)
