Good 6.0
We stayed with two kids under 9. The breakfast was overpriced even more so than everything in Iceland. The room had bunk beds and a kitchenette which was great since we could buy some of our meals from the supermarket. There were no blinds only curtains that didn't go to the ceiling and we were there during summer solstice, so the room was never very dark. It is located on the edge of town in a sense so driving to and from the hotel was easy and parking was no problem.

Fair 4.0
Hotel locked up - could not get in after 11pm
Our flight arrived like many others around 11pm. This hotel had no shuttle pickup, they suggested either Taxi at 165 Euros one way or 30 Euros by bus. We took the bus which had us at the hotel at 1:15am. The Hotel was locked up with a not at the front desk, closed at 11pm. There was a bell and intercomm outside the door which we rang about 10 time over 15min then gave up. We also called the hotel number which we could here ringing inside but also no answer. We had to then start walking to another hotel at 1:30am. We called the closest one we could find and he had 1 room left for us. That hotel also called the Arctic Comfort Hotel but got no answer. So we then stayed the second night as we had the room booked for 2 nights and for the most part the room was good, we had found out later that they do not always have a night person although when we did check in they mentioned the front desk is staffed 24hrs. Many tours go out and come back at 2:30am if the guests did not have the keys they would also be locked out. When we checked out it was at 2:30am since that is how long of a wait we needed for the airport bus to pick us up and go to all other hotels for the 6am flight. The check out was smooth but they did not ask how our stay was, so I could not inform them of the shower the was clogged and almost overflowed onto the bathroom floor, or the very loose Power plug in the bathroom another safety hazard.

Poor 2.0
They are not what the seem online. Beware!
It was a nightmare: their cheap IKEA mattresses are very uncomfortable, the room was filthy dirty (the minibar was so dirty we could not use it and there was blood in one bed sheet), the curtains are not appropriate for a place where the sun hardly sets in Spring/Summer and they have far too many steps. We have 1 baby and 1 toddler, and we booked a triple room (as the baby still sleeps with us anyway, we just needed one extra bed for the toddler; by the way, we didn't reserve breakfast for any day). When we arrived at our room, we figured it out that it was a double room, not triple, as we had booked. The receptionist told us the triple room had been given to someone else and, after calling his manager, he said we would have to stay at a quadruple room. Astonishingly enough, we were forced to pay the difference! When I pondered that I booked a triple room and I didn't think was fair to pay more for something that I did not need, he said his manager was adamant that we should stay at a room with 4 beds as we were 4 guests (irrespective of the kids age!). So, we had to stay at a room in the third floor, with no lift (imagine that with baby stroller... or for someone who needs a wheelchair, which at least was not our case), with one double bed and one bunk bed. We did not even use the top bed at the bunk bed, as we were afraid the toddler could fall from the heigh. What seemed like a good deal online was a truly nightmare...

Reception is in the building nearby. Be sure to keep that in mind. No fancy building just a normal one which you don't recognise from outside as a hotel with like ~40 rooms. The furniture is nice and clean. A strange thing is the bathroom, it is just separated by a partly see-through glass door and pane. I stayed there with a friend of mine (two boys) so be sure no one wants to leave the room while you're showering or "doing your business" as he comes by at the bathroom glass door. On the table is complementary water and tee, which gets filled up every day and cups for tea or coffee. Neat. Yeah, the hotel is in a kinda like industrial/commercial district but that is it. No noise, not much cars are passing by and not much business is going on there. Be sure to check out the "Ginger" to-go-restaurant, it is only a few meters away. For me, I ate there the most delicious chicken salad of all time. We came over a few times as we did not expect such amazing salads/wraps/etc. Plenty of parking space available. We walked to downtown once for 30min. I'll recommend to take the car, it's quicker.

About a 30 min walk into town but good parking
Even though it was 30 mins to walk into town it was easy to find and plenty of free parking out front. It's kind of in an industrial estate. Very quiet. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable and they have free maps on the check in desk. Bus stop near by and it's only a few stops into town. There was a mistake with our room key and we entered a room with people already in it. The guys on the front desk were very apologetic and rectified it straight away. The room we had was like a studio apartment with 2 single beds and two bunkbeds. I don't know if they were all like that or whether we had been upgraded. The decor inside the room was a bit old fashioned and the bathroom was tiny but it was light and airy and clean. My mattress was a bit worn with a dip in the middle but it was still comfortable. Three pillows were good as often hotels don't have enough.
