Hotel not in city centre but near it

Hi all,

I am looking for a 3 or 4 star hotel which ideally is close to the city centre, but not directly in it. Although i've seen tons of lovely hotels that are in the city centre, we are not going for the nightlife so want to avoid the noise etc from people partying in the city centre. However, we want somewhere that is within reasonable walking distance - so far i can see the Stormhotel, Reykjavik Lights, Icelandair and Fosshótel Reykjavík that i think may fit the bill. Can anyone advise if i am right or recommend anything else?

Thanks

I think I'd take Icelandair Hotel Natura, or Hilton Nordica. Possibly Radisson Blu Saga.

22 Hill Hotel for a budget hotel. Free tea and coffee, walking distance to the main sights and restaurants and free parking. Ask for a room that is not on the side road where there is more traffic.

Storm Hotel, Klettur and 22 Hill for example. They are within a short walking distance of the city center, but not in streets where there are clubs and bars.

My wife stayed at Hotel Cabin last March. Budget 3 stars. Free breakfast. She was fine with it. Rooms a bit small. There is a bus stop in front. Its out of the city center. I bought her a portable electric kettle but it turns out the hotel had them in each room. I went to see it when I was there 2 weeks ago.
