We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Great location! Check in was easy, free wifi, and the hotel had a gym. Bathroom had heated floors! There was only one instance where hotel staff was a bit rude. We were hungry and their room service had ended. We asked if they know of any restaurants open and/or recommendations (it was 10:30pm) and she gave attitude asking "you want ME to call every restaurant to see if they're open?" That wasn't what we asked but we didn't bother to argue and just searched on our own. The gentlemen in the morning however were helpful in making sure we got picked up for our tours and called companies on our behalf. Breakfast wasn't the best, maybe because the type of breakfast was Scandinavian influenced, which I never had before, but nonetheless I ate it everyday. Our room had a king size bed, desk, tv, and a bathroom with heated floors! The light fixtures were pretty as well. The room felt a bit small with our luggage laying around, maybe a queen bed would've sufficed, but no big deal. Overall, pleasant experience and would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved staying here and would recommend too friends and family.
It's close to everything, I had emailed the hotel prior to leaving and asked for a room in the back because I had heard about a bar and street level noise and they did just that as well let us check in early the morning we arrived.
Our room was lovely and quiet we heard nothing.
We ate the breakfast only twice because of the time changed it kinda screwed us up the first time was excellent the second time the staff had no idea what they were doing so was a little disappointed but that would be the only bad thing I would say. Everyone was friendly and helpful we loved staying here and I can't wait too go back one day soon 😊
We booked a Hilton so we knew what we would begetting but there was not so much choice for food as expected and the bar staff in particular were rude or at the least dis-interested despite trying to interact with them

The hotel was fine, but it was on the outskirts of town. The rental car company's office was supposed to be a shuttle bus away from the terminal, but turned out to be further than where the shuttle bus dropped you office. It was dark, and dragging luggage around the airport parking lot was terrible. By the time we reached the car rental office; and although there were 4 employees working, 50 people were waiting for their cars, the line was not movinh, and people in line were sitting on the floor asleep. After an hour of that, we dragged our luggage back across the black, dark parking lot and got a cab to take us for an hour long, expensive ride to our hotel. We never got a car. All other car rental offices were empty as those passengers were able to get through their line quickly and easily. I would recommend staying in the heart of Rekyavik at a hotel that has shuttle service and from there on, take tours or walk to local sites of interest. I wasted money on a car I never got

Close to city centre. We hired a car so the fact it was directly off of one of the main roads suited us, although it was incredibly noisy at night.
Breakfast was basic continental and not great we only had it 2 out of 4 mornings, would have been nice to see rolls and croissants etc instead there was just a loaf of shop bought sliced bread! The orange juice was foul, watered down and tasteless. The milk was past it's best.
The bed was comfortable enough, there was a wardrobe and a TV which showed English channels although the tv had a really irritating visual description (kind of like a narrator telling you what is going on in every scene- I think this must be for the visually impaired) setting that I just couldn't switch off.
Staff - pleasant enough although I did get barked at for not taking my plate to the kitchen... to be honest, at £70 per night I wouldn't expect to have to!!!
Overall, like an expensive but more basic Travelodge.

Great location and friendly staff but hotel feels like a tour group-style hotel (super basic, serving large groups who do their damage on the hotel vs personalized, warm/welcoming experience). Breakfast is definitely lacking (quality) and is in a conference / meeting room. Carpets in the hallways smell a bit moldy and are in serious need of cleaning. Rooms are fine...very basic essentials and no safe.
If on a budget and only need essentials, it's a good place to pick.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel and really enjoyed it. Loved how each room had their own entrance (we were in and out several times to look for the Northern Lights... which we saw twice that night). Great distance away from all light pollution, yet still close to some restaurants and the Myvatn bath. My only complaint would be the VERY thin walls. We could hear a man using the restroom through the shared wall. Also was woken many times in the night by other travelers talking (it goes straight through!). Breakfast was awesome, as well as watching the cows get milked. Very homey feel and we enjoyed it.
