I don’t even know what to say about Hotel Holt and the amazing staff. I stayed with them in November for 4 nights and every aspect was amazing. The hotel itself is gorgeous; comfortable, chic and the art work is lovely. It was probably one of the most elegant hotels I’ve ever stayed at. The location is amazing; walking distance to everything! Just a short walk down Bergstaðastræti and you’re at Skólavörðustígur, the famous rainbow street. I love everything Thai street represents. Everybody is welcome in Reykjavik. As a solo female traveller, I felt very safe in this neighbourhood, and Reykjavik as a whole. I walked any time of day/night without issue. The staff were all incredible; so personable, friendly and professional. They were very helpful in terms of recommending places to eat or things to do in the city. Honestly, I was so sad to leave but will 100% be back to Iceland and will undoubtedly stay at Hotel Holt again.

The staff were extremely helpful whenever I asked for recommendations on what to do and where to eat, the room was perfect for needs which was essentially just somewhere to sleep between tours and meals. I added breakfast onto my booking which was a godsend as it meant that at least I didn’t have to buy breakfast in the city (lunch and dinner are expensive enough) also this is the cherry on top, it was a great location, walking distance to the bus station and most major attractions.

This hotel is in the center of everything. We walked everywhere and it was a perfect location. The staff is lovely! The young man at the desk was courteous, helpful & took great care of us. His best tip was the taxi APP for my iPhone. We had a junior suite, it was big and very comfortable. The bed was comfortable, pillow just ok. Great shower. Overall very clean. Breakfast was the best we had all week in our travels. A nice variety and fresh - well tended to. Parking was easy with two lots to choose from. They were gracious and held our luggage over night when we went on an overnight tour of the golden circle. Would definitely stay again in future travels.

So much better hotels than the holt, the breakfast was absolutely shocking what they offered, £17 each for cold beans and hot dogs, we arrived about 10am in the morning we were told that we couldn’t check in until 3pm but if we paid £33 we could have the room then and there, absolutely shocking

My wife stayed there Oct 17-18. and Nov 2-5, 2021 in the junior suite . Originally , I selected this hotel because of parking on the premises, but I decided not to drive within Reykjavik. I enjoyed staying there more than just about every other hotel the last 50 yr, including some very luxurious hotels. The reason starts with the very friendly and helpful concierge service that recommended and made reservations at outstanding restaurants, but the proximity to these restaurants and the rest of downtown is another big plus. The room was spacious , and the bathroom sufficiently large with good shelving. The views of the city via multiple large picture windows was also nice. The breakfast is good and the bar really good with the bartender suggesting outstanding Icelandic spirits. I will go back there for sure in subsequent trips to Iceland.
