We visited a dear friend who resides in Reykjavik and stayed in the hotel. It is a recently converted paint factory right alongside the harbor in downtown area. While a bit apprehensive about the language differential, we were relieved to find most people there spoke fluent English and were very accommodating in every respect. The rooms were a bit on the small side, and furnished a bit sparsly in " early Ikea" design..... but quite clean with very comfortable beds and flat screen TV. The programs were multi-national with few in English. The baths were a bit different with a shower area enclosed with a curtain over a drain, but plenty of hot water. The restaurant on the first floor is a bar/pub style with good service and a small but tasty set of offerings. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet each morning with a surprisingly wide selection of local and friendly alternatives. It was here I was introduced to SKYR, a yogurt style dish that I am still searching for in Florida! Loved the salmon, breads, salads, and a few items that while very tasty, were not identified. The location is right in the heart of the downtown area and convenient to most attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful in every respect, possibly because our host friend was a retired Government Minister there. . Remember, your Euros and Stirling are not good here.... you must convert to the local currency or use your credit cards.... accepted everywhere we went.
