We're just back from 4 nights here. We had one of their suites on the top floor - a huge room with a seating area and a great bathroom with an enormous two-person whirlpool bath as well as a gigantic shower. The only disappointment was that the only windows were non-opening skylights - would have been great for seeing Northern Lights if there had been any - but we soon adapted to not having a view. Although it was quite expensive, we thought it was very good value for money - about the same price as a shabby cubbyhole in a central London hotel - and it included free wi-fi and a welcome drink on our arrrival.
The hotel is brilliantly located, almost next door to the Iceland Excursions central office, so very convenient for the airport buses and excursions to the Blue Lagoon etc, and in the middle of lots of shops and restaurants whilst being very quiet. It is less than ten minutes walk to the old harbour, one minute to the start of the main shopping street, and one minute to the parliament. We didn't eat at the hotel as there were plenty of interesting places to try nearby, but we had a drink in the bar the first night and although it wasn't particularly atmospheric, it was perfectly comfortable.
The staff were uniformly charming and helpful, going out of their way to check that we knew where we were picking up trips, bringing extra pillows, and reminding us to book the airport bus the day before departure.
We would definitely stay there again.
