My husband and I spent two days here after a 4 month vacation. We found it a perfect place to rest and enjoy a brisk spring. They have a very good restaurant, an in house travel agency, and a spa which unfortunately we did not have time to try. The buffet breakfast is generous with many Icelandic foods to try. It is far away from the downtown, but they give out bus passes. We walked through the University to a nearby restaurant Nauthall, which was not expensive by Icelandic standards, and quite good. There is a beach nearby and a museum called the Perlan, which has great views of the city and a glacier cave experience. The room was comfortable and the lobby had fireplaces and books and games and a little bird museum. The lobby also had wooden statues and there is a Elf stone outside. We were there in April so the price was reasonable. Bus tours pick up from the lobby, and a bus is available to the airport. It was very quiet with a view of the water from some rooms and the landings. I would recommend for people who are renting a car or like to be a bit away from the action.
