Perfect location and easy to find your way home at the end of a day's shopping or evening out. Room (213) was in a lovely spot (in the Hotel's sister building) with a double aspect view of the main church Hallgrimskirkja and a really soothing...More

Thank you for the detailed review and I know Farooq will appreciate the special mention--we love him too! While it's true that we're uphill, it also means you're that much quicker walking everywhere else!

Thanks a lot for the warm words! If you come back to Iceland, by all means visit us again--you need to see the new lobby, which we just finished renovating!

We booked our weekend break to Reykjavík through Icelandair and Leifur Eiriksson was the accommodation provided as part of our package. Don't expect luxury, but functionality, but this isn't a negative comment, actually far from it!! We stayed in Room 314 in the annexe building....More

As far as I know there is not any designated parking at the hotel but there is on-street parking. You may have to feed a parking meter on a daily basis.
