              • Family with children
                7.4

                Central, easy to use as a base for shopping

                Little noisy and small rooms

              • Family with children
                7.4

                It was our teenage kids favorite hotel ever! We had a spiral staircase to an upstairs room where the kids had their own space. The main reason we booked this hotel was because it had a room available for 4 people. We were afraid it would be too far away from the downtown, but it was not at all. It was a nice walk straight down the main shopping street. (We were there in the summer when it stayed light and was nice weather). They also had a very enjoyable breakfast. It was ham and cheese and fresh rolls, cereal, yogurt, toast and oranges. They did not have greasy bacon, sausage and hash browns. We really liked it.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                The hotel was great and the man at reception was friendly and helpful.

                Our only concern was the room was very hot.

              • Family with children
                6.6

                Location. We got a very good room for a family of four

                Breakfast. Nearly no food left when we arrived 30 minutes before breakfast ended. Slow breakfast staff. Needed to clean tables after earlier guests

              • Single
                6.6

                Generally a clean hotel with nice rooms, bar and restaurant facility. Location is only a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of town.

                The en-suite shower room had a strong smell of drains, particularly after the shower had been running.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                Good location and helpful staff.

                The family room we were given had no blinds on the roof window and being here in summer, the 24 hour light was quite disturbing to our sleep.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Convenient situation and staff helpful. Would use again.

                Hotel Name just changed to Best Western which meant that the taxi driver could not find it.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                The staff was helpful. When we were first put in a room with no black out shades or shade for the skylight in the week before the summer solstice, they moved us to a room that had those things.

              • Single
                7.0

                Helpful front desk staffs. Location ok, 20 minutes to town center. Hotel has no restaurant, just a snack bar.

                Room cleaning is minimum. I stayed 4 nights in a double bed room. The room and bathroom was very clean when I check-in on the first day. But, the room cleaning on the following 3 days was very poor. Out of toilet paper, dirty floor, soiled towels not replaced.......

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Our room was quite spacious and the staff were very helpful

                No complaints, all was good

              • Single
                6.6

                My room was opposite of a garage and the doors were making quite a loud noise during the whole night.

              • Single
                5.8

                The breakfast buffet and bar area and the staff associated with them were great. Rooms were super clean ready for move in.

                For the price, I expected a little more in the way of service and room quality. I had intended 2 separate stays at Hotel Reykjavik over the course of 12 days. They botched my reservation on my first stay and had to relocate me to another property with little in the way of apologies or compensation. For the second stay, I found the front desk staff abrasive ("please come back in a few minutes, I'm quite busy right now"). The quality of the room didn't line up with the price of the room. The location is fair, but you can certainly do better with a little research. Do you homework.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                Great breakfast, helpful staff, nice large, quiet rooms.Dealt with our "light" issue sympathetically.

                Not quite as central as it advertises! Still only a 10 minute walk from dowtown but other hotels were really better placed in the hub of the town. All the family rooms featured a large velux window in the roof that had no blind or covering. The midnight sun poured in and the rooms was consequently far too light to sleep in . The hotel acknowledged this and said that other complaints had been had and they were in the process of getting some blinds for the velux windows. In the meantime they kindly upgraded us to two separate double rooms.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Nice clean room and bathroom. Comfortable beds. Easy walking distance from the centre of Reykjavik. when I made the oringinal booking, I inadvertently booked for 7 nights, then realised I should have only booked for 5 nights. I had chosen the cheaper, non refundable option and it was my mistake so I did not expect to get any money back. However the Hotel very kindly gave us a free upgrade to a beautiful large room, which I thought was nice of them and over and above what I was expecting.

                The hotel is not marked in any way as a Best Western Hotel and is known locally as Hotel Reykjavik. When we arrived at Keflavik airport and caught a coach from the airport to the city, the coach company, Reykjavik Excursions, offered a minibus drop off service for guests at the local hotels. When I asked for Best Western hotel the driver said he had never heard of it, and even went to confirm with a colleague who had also not heard of it. Eventually we made our own way from the bus station, with our luggage, on foot. If I had not been to Iceland before and known the area, this would have been very difficult. This could be avoided by making it clear to guests that they should ask for Hotel Reykjavik

                Cosy! Everything I needed was in the room, very clean and good location. I recommend this hotel to girls' trip.

                A hair dryer is old.
