Let’s start with counterpoints to negative reviews...double billed (human error can happen anywhere), grumpy staff (no, just working hard and not supposed to be your buddy buddy), bathroom doors not closing all the way (don’t be so uptight)...ignore them.
1. This is not America so don’t expect American standards.
That said, this hotel was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff works hard and long hours, especially at the front desk. They are friendly and accommodating and also have lots of people to process and assist...this is a very popular hotel so they want to move things along.
2. Location Location Location
This is set at the foot of the most popular street and oldest/original street in Reykjavík. Everything is in walking distance.
Get a room on the backside of the hotel-views of the mountains and harbor...also this is the QUIETEST side. Wed-Sat nights are popular social nights and can get loud on the streets, however, outdoor music and noise will end at 11pm so anything after that is overly served or very enthusiastic night partyers.
The rush hour is 7:30-8:15, give or take. It is a buffet and very typical of every other place I was...actually if anything, it was on the more robust side of offerings.
I WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN.More
