Location is excellent, within walking distance to everywhere and right opposite the cathedral. Breakfast was decent. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful, except the owner who is rude and loud. I think she must have trained at the Basil Fawlty school for hospitality. Rooms are the size of a wardrobe and bathroom the size of a broom cupboard.

Hotel Leifur Eiriksson is a very good choice for tourists planning on staying in different locations around Iceland. The location,price and the staff are all excellent. The bath and shower were modest. However, trying to find a room with a private bath, at that price,and general location, in high season, will always be difficult.
