Went on a 3 day package offered by Icelandair. Generally can recommend it but having looked at Trip Finder for hotels, we decided to upgrade to the Leifur Eriksson. Good central location and the information & photos provided by the hotel on their site supported our decision. DON’T BELIEVE IT! On arrival by an efficient Flybus plus we were given the keys to our room on the third floor. There is no lift and no offer to help with cases. Only one member of staff on duty and he was overwhelmed by all of us arriving at the same time from the same flight. The room was like a cupboard. The single beds were about 2’ 6” wide, the sink is what you would expect in a toilet and was in an enclosure that included the shower. The whole atmosphere can at best be described as dingy and tired. On complaining we were offered a room in their annex, across a main road although all services were only available in their main building. This second room was below pavement level and while larger, was equally dingy with a cracked sink in the wash room. On complaining again, to the hotel’s credit they agreed to get us transferred to another hotel and they paid for the taxi to transfer us.
