Quiet Place to Stay Nov 25, 2016
Another nice place to stay during our trip to Iceland. Hotel Borealis was the most out-of-the-way of the hotels we visited, I think. We chose to eat there for convenience and once again were pleased with the food in the restaurant. The food was good and was presented nicely on the plate. Once again the menu was not big but had good options. Breakfast was buffet-style in the same dining room as dinner had been the night before.

The lobby was more compact than the one from the night before but its rustic feel was very homey. The bartender was attentive and ready to answer questions. I loved the Christmas village display that took up a whole corner of the lobby.

Our room was tighter than our first hotel but it had more storage space although no TV. The radiators provided enough heat to dry out any of our damp stuff which including swimsuits after we enjoyed the hot tub practically outside our hotel room day. The keys here were actual keys and they weren't small.

The bed was comfortable although I still had not fully adjusted to it having two smaller comforters rather than one big one like hotels in the US usually did.

Finding outlets was a little more challenging here but we made it work.

The bathroom was small but the shower was warm which is always important in my book.

The hotel actually has some outbuildings for guests as well as rooms in the main building. Also even though it was one-story, the layout required us to go up a few steps to get to our room.
