Nice hotel a very short walk to downtownPosted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: The proximity to the town, restaurants, shops and bars. The bed was comfortable for nights rest, and the breakfast was delicious each day.
Cons: The rooms could use darker curtains to make sleeping easier. It wasn't clear that our room would be in a separate building but it wasn't a problem.
Location: This hotel is directly across the street from the famous church. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants.
We arrived on an early flight and were able to stash our bags with the helpful hotel staff while we explored the town. Once our room was ready, we made our way from the main building to our room in a nearby building, and found our way to the room for a nap. The bed was comfortable enough - not quite like home but it did the job. The room was a little bright for sleeping, especially difficult in the summer time.

God value for moneyPosted Jan 27, 2015
Only disadvantage is there is no escalator and therefore you must carry your suitcase up the stairs. The staff offered to do it. But I am not that old.

Very spartan room in excellent locationPosted Jan 7, 2015
Pros: Location, next to the landmark church and close to restaurants and shopping. Housekeeping was adequate. They did my bed and vacuumed every day.
Cons: Very difficult to enlarge rooms and bathrooms but perhaps add some toiletries
Location: Walk the adjacent streets. Nice small village ambience. Beware of prices, especially food; more expensive than Norway which is a lot to say.
I stayed for 5 nights at Leifur Eiriksson hotel. My single-bed room in the building across the street was cramped; there was not even enough space to open my suitcase so I was forced to unpack (not a bad idea). However, the closet was just a hollow space with a high shelf and a hanging rod with NO hangers. Fittingly, tiny TV reminiscent of the 1980's but probably not worth updating as there was only one working channel with Bible teaching around the clock. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The pillow was too soft for my taste but that's a problem I've found in most European hotels. The bathroom was apparently not meant to hold both a sink and a shower; the sink, also minuscule, is enclosed in the shower area so one actually has to stand in the shower to brush one's teeth. Also, there is no barrier for the water so the entire bathroom floods when you take a shower or simply wash your face in the sink. They provide liquid hand soap and shower gel but no shampoo. The water has a sulfurous smell, probably because of its underground origin (like all water in Iceland.) On the good side, staff was extremely polite and helpful. They assisted me with all tours I took. Breakfast was not fancy but plentiful and satisfying. There is a coffee machine available at all times that dispenses so-so cappuccino and cafe latte. Restaurants in Iceald are extremely expensive. I suggest to stock up snacks and beverages from the convenience store next door.

Bra läge vid HallgrimskyrkanPosted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: Läget, personalen, frukosten.
Cons: Vattenlukten, termostater på rummen
I stort sett bra. En fantastisk utsikt mot den otroligt vackra Hallgrimskyrkan, Bra personal, mycket serviceminded.. Bra frukost. Kaffe och annat drickbart dygnet runt. Negativa saker: 1. Mycket ljud från gatan intill. 2.Svårt hålla rätt rumstemperatur. För varmt eller för kallt. 3.Varmvattnet luktar svavel (avlopp), troligen på grund av den vulkaniska uppvärmningen.

ロケーション最高。特に不足なしPosted Dec 29, 2014
一番有名な教会のまさに真ん前なので、迷うことなく行き着くことができます。ツアーがでるツアーオフィスまでも徒歩数分なので問題なし。 部屋はシンプルで、泊まるだけならなんの問題もありませんでした。 朝食はシンプルなビュッフェが込み、wifiはフリー、エレベータはなかったです ツアーや空港送迎もフロントで申し込みができました。

More like a hostelPosted Nov 26, 2014
Pros: Nice looking, modern very nice staff, well-located, right in town.
Cons: Internet. The room itself cannot be enlarged.
Location: It's right on a main street, so almost directly in the heart of the city (which is not big)
I stayed in a building that was just across the road from the main hotel. I don't know what the rooms are like in the main hotel, but mine was fine, but really more like a hostel room. Very small, with internet connection so slow that I had to sit in the main hotel lobby if I actually wanted to do anything on-line. Nice, clean, inexpensive, very nice staff well-located.
