The hotel is clean, its staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and its located just over the road from Hallgrimskirkja. At an agreeable cost, you would be hard-pressed to find a better hotel in Reykjavik. As an aside, there is free parking all around Hallgrimskirkja.

As far as I know there is not any designated parking at the hotel but there is on-street parking. You may have to feed a parking meter on a daily basis.
