The building itself is a rather unattractive glass box, in probably the most industrial setting I’d seen in my whole trip, however the interior was undisputedly modern. It could do with a lick of paint – walls along the corridors are scraped at both floor and head height, looking like the hospitality staff have had one too many arguments with their towel trolleys! The room was clean, modern and a good size, having table and chairs, storage areas, a big TV with English channels and a kettle with tea and coffee. Bedding was no different here – just one pillow, no spares. We had dinner in their restaurant, but had to leave before breakfast was even a thought, so had asked if they could leave us a croissant and a coffee to take with us. We were ensured that this was fine, but alas, no..we were presented with cold cuts of meat and cheese, and no means of taking a coffee away – super helpful if you’re a) a vegetarian and b) on your way to catch a plane. The night staff were quite rude about this, and given that we’d actually paid for breakfast but were going without anything at all, very unaccommodating.
I doubt this will ever be on a tourist’s radar – not exactly the most hip and trendy location in Iceland – though ideal if like us you find yourself wanting only a twenty minute drive to the airport for a very early flight…just don’t expect breakfast to be made up for you!
