Its all about Location
The location is the best thing about this place, followed by its breakfast! If you are doing any excursions that require being picked up this is the place, its literally 50 feet from the Leif Erickson statue where many of the places want to meet. As for the room, it was ok, the bathroom was interested as it consisted of a toilet, sink and shower all in the same 3x3 space, no dividers or anything. the sink was maybe 12" wide. You know you should worry when even the hostess said "i'm glad you ended up with this room as others are..." If you just want a place to stay that is near it all, this is the place. it is within walking distance of dozens of stores, bars and restaurants. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful and spoke perfect English and the free breakfast was very good!

Good but basic
Good central location near the church. Rooms are small and outdated. Breakfast was good but basic. A few room upgrades and breakfast item enhancements would make this place a real winner.

Too Small and wifi didn't work.
Not thrilled. While convenient to explore the city, the room was TOO SMALL for us. No room for our luggage. It was a twin bed room so would be ok for backpackers but for anybody with larger luggage no. Breakfast was, eh, so so. No soap or shampoo, just a dispenser on the wall that was supposed to be both? No washcloths. I guess you are supposed to use the hand towel? I couldn't shower like that. Had to wait until I got home. Hotel in Keflavik near the airport was MUCH nicer than this. Also wifi in room was so poor, we had to hang out in lobby just to connect.

Convenient gem of a hotel with awesome staff
Loved this hotel. Great, helpful staff who went above and beyond to help me explore Iceland and travel comfortably. It's an easy pickup point for the tour companies and a convenient base camp to walk around Reykjavik. And the tea and coffee available in the lobby was a great bonus. And my room was adorable. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Location, Great Breakfast
Great location right by the amazing cathedral, Hop-on-hop off bus, shopping, restaurants and easy taxi pick-up. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. They held our luggage at the desk while we went sightseeing on the last day. They put out a breakfast spread that was healthy and amazing - granola cereal, hard boiled eggs toast, meat and cheese, tuna salad, waffles with jam. In a place where food is so expensive, this was a real blessing, and I usually don't eat breakfast! Coffee and tea were always available and they even offered drinks for a small price. Only one drawback, my elderly parents were along and they have no handrails on some of the stairs and the exit doors have a 2 inch lip even I kept tripping over.
