big,massive room, very comfortable. friendly reception.
.huge.. would be an understatement. if they put in a couch it wouldnt look so big and empty. shower curtain would ensure floor doesnt get wet. bedside lamp not that giant hanging thing would be more useful. i could see people being a little ticked about travelling across the base to breakfast.
No facilities (kitchen, laundry) in the new wing, where I stayed. They were even signs in the building for them
A Perfect Place for an overnight/transit stay near Reykjavik -KF Airport.They have multiple buildings within the same compound. Overall a decent stay option.
They Do not have lift . If you are carrying big luggage please be ready for a stairs ride.
Close to airport
Difficult to find and we had to ask directions from a competing hotel as it wasn't easy even with GPS. There was no staff on site. Only 1 girl on the desk in the MAIN BUILDING which was several minutes drive away from our actual hotel block and we had lugged our suitcases in to that desk, only to have to put them back in the car and lug them a 2nd time to our building. Luckily we thought to ask about restaurants before we drove off as it isn't obvious where to eat.......
It's a great location. Pretty close to the airport. Not far from the Blue Lagoon. Quick drive to Reykjavik from there. Easy to do the Golden Circle in a day from here. Some great restaurants in the area. It was a great place for our stopover. Only 3 days in Iceland. So we were able to do what we wanted from here pretty easily. The staff was nice. The property is simple, but sufficient. I was pretty impressed with the noise dampening the rooms had. Our room was right next to the lobby. It got pretty busy and loud at night with the bar in the lobby. But we never really heard it in our room. Breakfast not included for us, but decent for the price for the convenience and for Iceland in general.
The breakfast area isn't terribly huge so if there are a lot of people (as I think there was a tour group there) it can be a little bit of a tight fit and fight to get to the breakfast bar as was the case our first morning there. The other two days were just fine.
