Hotel Klettur is a beautiful first class hotel, a stone’s throw from downtown. The hotel?s name is derived from the rock that is on the first floor of the hotel and bursts out through the wall. Icelandic folktales are filled with stories about elves that live in rocks around the island. While working on roads and house building, many road builders and workers have had to make drastic changes to their plans because they could not move big rocks that where blocking their way. There is a strong believe that the elves living in the rocks are the cause. On the first floor of Hótel Klettur there is a rock breaking through the wall and even if it is not known for sure, one can imagine that this was done to keep the elves in the rock happy.
