This hotel looked the part but fell short. We checked in very late after a long day of hiking and I just wanted to go to bed. The desk clerk was very nice and checked me in quickly. When we got to the room everything looked fine but the room was piping hot and humid like a steam room. We opened the window but found that it only opens an inch per the type of window. I then got ready for bed and realized the bed was damp/wet and the wool throw blanket was very damp. My husband went to the front desk to have this addressed and the woman at the desk addressed this as quickly as she could but she seemed to be the only staff working so it wasn’t super quick. During this time my husband had gotten me some surprise little desserts to have before bed, but while we were waiting for the bed to be changed, it all melted. They were kind enough to replace the dessert though. But the dessert was less than good — the rice pudding ball was inedible and the chocolate cake was like a gas station brownie — but both looked n. Not what you’d expect for almost usd $50. Shower didn’t drain on one side — not the worst issue for certain. The worst was the damp bedding and the super hot/humid room — I had the worst sleep of my whole trip. Luckily everyone was nice and we only had one night there. I would have moved hotels had we had to stay beyond the one night. Other hotels we stayed at the I highly recommend on this trip included Alda in Reykjavik and Silica Hotel at the Blue Lagoon Spa.

Great stay at Umi
Amazing hotel, quiet, classy and clean. Very friendly staff and great vibe all around. We actually extended our stay for 2 extra nights. Walk to a black sand beach through a filed of flowers. Beautiful horses at the farm along the 2km drive into the hotel from highway 1. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back!
