This was a good base for two nights in Reykjavik. The rooms were perfectly adequate (enough room for two large suitcases) and all the facilities were clean and tidy. The shower room might be a little small for some, but it was fine for us. The staff were helpful, and the breakfast buffet had a reasonable choice. The location was best - very near all the main streets and places in Reykjavik - just a 5 minute walk from two excellent restaurants we tried (Fish Company and Grill Market), and from the harbour and main shopping area. There is no parking at the hotel, but we arrived on Saturday evening and left just before 10am on Monday, so didn't need to pay for parking anywhere, and got a spot in the car park just next to the hotel. There is plenty of parking around on streets in anycase. The hotel was not noisy - it was set back far enough from the main streets, though my husband did notice it was busier at 5am than it was at 11pm! But it wasn't anything to keep us awake at all - it was a quiet location.
No free wi-fi was a pain (and I think the charges weren't small if you did want the internet for 24 hours!), but apart from that, this was a very decent start to our week's holiday, no complaints!
