Going to Iceland in winter means you get to your hotel after dark and have to leave before sunrise. So we really regret not being able to sit in our room and watch the sunrise, because it has this amazing view of the river, mountain from our room. We were probably two of less than ten guests that night, so we got a double room at the corner, which is huge! The room is very nice, so is the bathroom except for the smelling water ( can't really get used to it but it's Iceland). We didn't try the restaurant at the hotel or the Thai one, instead we drove through town at midnight hoping to find some warm food... And we did! We drove across the bridge just wanting to cross it, but we found the Olis gas station which offered pretty nice ribs and burgers.
The breakfast was really nice, our table was prepared as if we were the only guests. Despite of few guests, the hotel offered the whole set of continental breakfast. And the kiwi was sooooo good.
Anyway it's a very nice hotel, I would like to stay a little longer next time.
