Stayed here for 2 nights B&B in September in a Superior twin room.
Typically with Radisson, you kind of expect to get what you pay for and we did get a nice spacious, minimalist scandivian designed room with comfortable beds, flat screen TV, nice bathroom etc,etc. We stayed in room 322 overlooking Tryggvagata.
If you are a 'light' sleeper (like me) then you probably will not appreciate this Hotel's close proximity to the Reykjavik night club area.
Reykjavik's night life is world renowned and didn't we know it judging by the noise of early-hour revellers and the revving of car engines. Sometime around 4am it started to quieten down a bit !
I suppose 'when in Rome one should do as the Romans do', meaning that we should have been partying...well maybe next time ? I would probably avoid this hotel and area completely around Christmas and New Year (Hogmanay) time unless I take plenty of ear plugs !
On our 2nd night we had to check out very early at 4.15am prior to catching a flight from Keflavik airport. The pre-ordered taxi (driver) was already waiting in the hotel lobby and the hotel provided some fresh fruit, water and cereal bars - an early breakfast. Nice touch.
Like I say, nice hotel...
