We stayed at Glymur for four nights and can say without hesitation it was a very enjoyable stay. From the moment we checked in the staff were very friendly and professional. Unlike the cold decor favoured by the "chain" hotels Glymurs was both original and warm. The rooms and guest areas were always kept very clean. The quality of the food and restaurant service was also very high. The chef was very accomplished and would take the time to talk to guests about Icelandic cuisine and the guests requirements. Breakfast was also of a high standard as there was a wide range of fresh produce available. I would recommend this hotel and if I am ever in the area again would not hesitate to return.
