My daughter and I stayed here for four nights in early May on an Icelandair travel package from Toronto. The hotel is in the business area and not quite downtown but a free city bus pass (unlimited rides on the entire bus system) was included in our package and allowed us to take a bus from right outside the hotel for a less than ten minute ride into the heart of Reyjkavik. The hotel is well-located to walk down to the bay (10 mins) and about 45 minutes to walk all the way downtown taking the scenic Shore Walk. There are a number of restaurants within 5 minutes walk and a 24 hr. grocery store which has a hot food counter called Ginger. We ate there often as we found the food fresher and way cheaper than the restaurants, plus, we got sandwiches/wraps from there to eat during our day trips. The hotel is well-located to a residential area where it's nice to walk the streets and to the City's public swimming pool where there is also a hot spring pool.
The hotel has a very classic Scandinavian (high-end Ikea ??) look to it from the outside and in. Parking is free. We found the room size very adequate, and it was very handy to have a mini-fridge. Beds were super comfortable. Free Wi-Fi. Front desk and all other staff were typically very efficient and courteous. There is a tourist shop in the large and well-appointed lobby that is great for getting maps and information from the staff person, plus you can arrange tours, tickets, etc. There's I think three computers that guests can access but be warned ... you can't print from a USB stick (front desk probably can). We did not try the hotel restaurant as again, prices plus service charges were exorbitant, but we found that to be the case in general throughout Iceland.
In summary, everything you would expect from a Hilton with the added benefit that the Icelandic mentality ensures it is delivered very well, with efficiency and professionalism.
