I stayed at this HIlton in March of 2012 when I visited Iceland with my mother on a combined hotel/airfare package I had bought from Icelandaire. We stayed for 5 days. The hotel is considered a luxury property for Iceland, but I would rate it as somewhat less fancy than other international Hiltons I have stayed in elsewhere in Europe or the Middle East.
That being said, the hotel was immaculately clean, the staff extremely helpful and efficient, and the restaurant very, very good. We actually ate there several times - try the langostines, they are wonderful. The salmon is also very good. The breakfast buffet is also very high quality, but expensive if you don't have a voucher for it (pretty typical for hotel breakfast buffets price wise).
The bathrooms were small but serviceable - warning, water temperatures in Iceland tend to be one thing or the other - when you get hot, you get scalding hot. When you get cold, you will be numbed by it. Once you figure out the trick with the shower controls (again, typical when traveling in different countries) you should be fine.
The room had a flat panel tv screen (for fun while jet lagged, try watching the Icelandic only tv channels), small desk, bedside table. Internet access was free as well.
We had a pretty jam packed schedule while there, so I spent most of my time in my room sleeping. The bed was a bit soft (and oddly enough had two twin comforters on a double mattress), but was perfectly fine.
The shuttle service we found to be somewhat unreliable - which was a bit frustrating. The hotel is a solid mile walk from downtown (which would be fine in summer, but in winter with ice, slush, etc., not so pleasant).
I would certainly stay here again. Some of the package deals Icelandaire offers with this hotel are quite good. Excellent value for the money.
