A reduced price tempted me. The free arking turns out to be on the street a min or so walk away but not an inconvience. Excellent location for the 24 hr supermarket by the post office and there is a local 'corner' shop in the next street. If you want to check in before 2pm expect to stump up €15 - I went for a drive exploring outside the city instead. Noisy with renovation work in a propoerty next door but can't be helped. You are right under the final approach to the domestci airport and there are more arrivals than you would imagine, but no issue for me. As with another hotel I stayed in very few TV channels to sample local tele and very poor reception but I got an insight into what the locals see and hear. Two single beds in my room, no headboard and poor pillows but other wise relatively clean and comfortable. At €25 odd Euros a night for Iceland is was about right. Some confusion over access to the kitchinette with the microwave, one receptioned said yes, another no - please ask and then a note was tepped up 'staff only'. Access to a microwave for budget travellers is a major plus so do ask and you should be able to use. Jugs of hot water were laid on one one evening. Some guests seemed to have rather high expectations to have the staff running around following up transfers to the airport even though the reception was closed. It seems to close about 7pm. The bus station is a 30 min walk away, or use the phone, no YOUR OWN, to check up you third confirmation of the reservation. The breakfast spread was pretty good by continental standards. Recommended for budget travellers and those happy with a reasonable standard of stay. Will consider again in Novemeber for right price (have already secured next easyjet flight!)
