We liked this hotel very much. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The in-room bathrooms were very spacious and perfectly functional with nice showers. If you walked into this hotel room off a random interstate exit anywhere in the U.S. you wouldn't be disappointed (except for the single beds, but that is Iceland for you lol). The restaurant was very solid, with friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices. Not the best European hotel breakfast I've had, but perfectly fine.
