If I had to rate the hotel I would say it was nearer to a 3 star than 4 (by Icelandic standards). On arrival the person who registered us didn't tell us how to find our room and we had to ask (there are no signs on the walls directing you around the various turns in the corridor), and I thought it was strange not to offer a wake up call given a lot of visitors would be using the airport and also we figured out if you wanted a northern lights call you had to put your room number on the list in reception - so nothing terribly bad but I would have expected better service (my partner puts it that it was 'self service' which sums it up). The room was fine but not particularly well thought out - no mirror in the room apart from the bathroom (which steams up) so no doing my hair/make-up whilst waiting for my partner to finish showering. No clock in the room. The floor was not particularly clean but everywhere else was. The beds were OK and nice pillows. Breakfast was good.

My husband and I stayed at the NLI on our first night in Iceland. We arrived on an overnight flight at 6am and they had someone meet us at the airport and take us to the hotel. Check in is not until later in the afternoon so we figured we would just drop our bags off & go to the Blue Lagoon until we could check in, but thankfully we were able to get into our room about an hour & half after we go to the hotel so we were able to get a nap in before relaxing at the blue lagoon! They have a look out tower in the middle of the hotel to look for the northern lights, but we just hung out there to see some scenic views of the surrounding area (lave fields and a power plant). They have multiple sitting areas where you can read, talk, play chess, sit in front of a fire place, and an honesty bar which is nice b/c there is no where to go other then the BL. They will also drive you over to the BL on the hour and on request, which takes less than 5 minutes. They serve dinner in the same place they have breakfast, which is a fantastic room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lava fields. The dinner is not included, but it is very good! The rooms are a good size, with comfy beds and a good size bathroom! Great place to stay! We only wish we could have stayed more than one night, but they book up quickly with only have around 30 rooms.

This is a very nice hotel, a bit remote-feeling but actually very close to both the airport and the Blue Lagoon. There are free transfers to and from both whenever you want them, which was brilliant. Everything in this hotel was done to a great standard and was clean and comfortable. There was a log fire and an honesty bar and a decent restaurant with views over the surrounding lava fields (though the menu was a little limited, what we chose was perfectly cooked and delicious). A very pleasant place to stay.

Compared to other hotels we stayed at in Iceland, this one was fairly basic. We spent our holiday travelling around, staying in different hotels and guesthouses and this was the most disappointing. We came here for our last night due to its close proximity to the airport. The actual hotel waas very clean, but lacked character. Our room was very spacious though (it had a large bed and then an extra single bed for some reason), 2 arm chairs, a desk and a wardrobe. The room didn't have much in the way of decoration and was quite bland compared to other places we'd been earlier in the week. The view was of some volcanic rock and steam from the power station. The one feature I did like in the hotel was the observatory area, up the stairs. It was a dark room, had huge windows and multiple chairs and sofas to sit on, presumably for northern lights viewing. It was a good idea in theory but in practice there was still too muc reflection off of the glass, so you either had to press your nose up against it or go out on the balcony. The northern lights did appear to us that evening, but the best view was outside on the balcony. There was still a lot of light polution in this area though, so we drove further afield to try and get an even better view of them.

Breakfast was nothing special, some browning chopped fruit, a selection of cold meats/cheese, toast and yogurt/cereal. Other places we'd been to had waffle makers you could use, scrambled eggs, pastries etc. Also staff, whilst pleasant enough, hadn't been quite as helpful and welcoming as we'd found in other hotels.

Overall a pretty average sort of hotel for the £122 odd (23000 ISK) that we paid to stay there for an evening.

We stayed here on our last night in Iceland, its close to the airport so you can get a trip in to the blue pool before an afternoon flight. Rooms are excellent and food very good. The northern light viewing room was excellent and we were lucky enough to see a good show.
