Other reviews have said it all and you just need to weigh up if this is the right option for you.
We spent 3 nights at the Baron on an Icelandair package. It was a great deal and we are glad we chose it. It was clean, comfortable and warm. The breakfasts are good and reception can help with booking trips, checking your tour reservations, checking in with your return flight etc. Their English is great, sometimes they were really helpful and sometimes indifferent.
Having read reviews we chose to contact the hotel before and upgrade for ISK 4000 a night for a double ocean view room. The large windows look out over the seafront and mountains, the room was larger and to us this made it worthwhile. We also took our own tea/coffee mugs and were glad that we did. Free wifi is also a bonus although it can be weak in the rooms and once I had to go down to the reception area to use it.
Overall the Baron is a good 3* option. It is not a sprawling luxury hotel but it ticked all our boxes. All the tours pick you up from the hotel and the location is good, a road back from the seafront, the main shopping/restaurants only 2 blocks behind the hotel and a 10/15 minute walk to the main harbour and centre.
