Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked one of the cheaper, smaller room and based on the reviews here had low expectations. We arrived at 12 ish in the afternoon, dropped our bags in the luggage room and sat in the breakfast room to eat our lunch. The staff acknowledged us, just!

At 3pm our room was available. It was pretty small (still with a 6ft bed) but clean and functional and I was impressed given what we had paid compared to other hotels in the area. The bathroom was tiny and the basin was way to close to the toilet but the shower area that looked tiny was actually pretty good when the curtain was pulled. The rooms could have done with a tray for boots as we had to leave ours in the shower or outside the room because after walking in the snow the grit and the melting snow got everywhere!

The location was brilliant, we used the Greyline bus to bus stop no 3 (they didn't charge extra for 3) and it was an easy 10 min walk on heated streets. It was also a short walk to the Harbour.

Breakfast was excellent given it was advertised as light continental. Toast, ham, cheese, jams, yogurt and cereals and a waffle maker with syrup and whipped cream. There is only a 2 slice toaster, this could do with being a 4 slice as there was always a queue. Also they could do with putting on a new pot of coffee as they put the first one out as we were waiting 10 mins for more coffee. The other issue was they say breakfast is served from 7am but it wasn't out properly till 10 past which was a problem when needing to leave at 7.30am

I have no idea why they say tea and coffee is available all day as it was always empty or cold and was probably just what was left over from breakfast as it didn't seem to get refreshed during the day. Same with the milk.

All this said I would happily stay here again.

After agreeing to go a a pre-booked trip and reading some of the negative reviews for this place, i did have some concerns. However, the location is as good as it gets in Reykjavik. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we needed for our mini-break. The breakfast room was simple and clean too with a suitable selection of breakfast foods being made available including the 'make you own waffles' option which would be great for kids. My only disappointment with this place was that some of the other guests were quite nosiey on returning to the hotel later in the evening. They took advantage of the tea/coffee being made available in the breakfast bar but didn't really consider that other guests were trying to sleep in adjacent rooms. Maybe the hotel could add some signage to highlight this and request that noise levels be kept down.

We stayed at Hotel Hilda from 13th-17th Jan in room 13. The Bus Stop to use is Bus Stop 1 City Hall which is a 5 min walk to the Hotel. The Hotel is in easy walking distance to the Harbour and Restaurants.

On arrival we had a entrance code to the Hotel which was sent 2days before arrival. Also we had a separate code for our room. The room was perfect for our needs. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Radiator on the wall which you could turn up or down. Shower was great. You did have a drain smell but that is from the sulphur in the water which you get used to. In our room there was no wardrobe but there were coat hangers by the door.

Breakfast was ideal. Tea,Coffee and Fruit Juice. Cereal, Apples and Yogurt. A waffle maker which my wife used every morning. Bread and a toaster. Ham, cheese, cucumber,and tomatos all delicately sliced up. Also the staff member used gloves whilst cutting. Hands and fingers were clean.

All in all a great stay and ideal location and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Hotel Hilda is more like a hostel. We were e-mailed a door code for the front door and our room, no personal touch at all and no reception for help or advice. The only employee we saw was the rather surly and unfriendly young man who put out breakfast. He had long hair that was not tied back, so much for hygiene! The room was tiny, basic, depressing, not at all homely and welcoming, not particularly clean and was tired and needed updating. It is actually the worst room I have ever had the misfortune of staying in. There was only a meagre bit of net curtain at the window, even though our room was on street level and we had street light shining in. This meant there is no privacy when the light is on. There needs to be curtains or blinds at the window. The bathroom was tiny and no working fan, when you used the shower it flooded the floor so we had to use towels to try and stop this happening. The towels we hung up every day were changed even though the sign says they wouldn’t be. I try to be as eco-friendly as I can. We couldn’t access the room until 3, even though our room was ready, so we just had to sit and wait, not great after a long journey. There was a room to put luggage but this wasn’t secure. I am vegan and had messaged the hotel in advance to ask if they could cater for me, they said yes - what a joke!! There was some plant milk, but not enough for us both, some Almond milk was eventually available a couple of days later after we complained and so was ‘gluten free cheese’ we were told, well I am vegan and not gluten free!! They really had no idea! I had to buy my own plant based milk and spread. Breakfast was meagre, the coffee ridiculously strong and not available during the day. Only a 2 slice toaster so everyone had to wait to use it. If there were more than 6 people in the dining room then it was full! The stairs are steep and wouldn’t be any good for anyone with mobility issues. The lift is for baggage only. The only positives I can say about this awful place is the beds were comfy, linen and towels clean and ‘hotel’ was centrally placed and easy to walk into town and bus stop 1 where most of our tours started from. Please do yourself a favour and don’t book this place as in our opinion it is truly appalling. We loved Iceland but dreaded coming back to our depressing room and tried to stay out as much as possible.

My trip to Iceland was cancelled in 2020 because American Airlines cancelled our flight (pandemic) I had Prepaid my hotels there, but was offered a voucher to use those reservations at a later date by two prominent hotels. Those reservations have now been reinstated but Hoteel Hilda has taken my $175 us and refuses to respond to any attempts to ask for a refund or a new date. I believe they are a poor representative of the hospitality industry in Iceland. Your country lives and dies by tourism and I think are despicable

We were delighted with our stay at the Hotel Hilda. We were greeted as soon as we arrived mid day and our room was ready. At first we were in the basement but you would never know it the window was large and the room was very nice,warm and inviting. The second day Asta asked about our room, she mentioned the heat we said it was warm but not uncomfortable. She said we could move and that we did. It was the very same room up on the third floor. It was cooler and lovely, near a balcony ( which would have been nice to have a folding chair to sit upon). The whole house was very quiet. To me it was more like a bed and breakfast home than a hotel.
We did not have breakfast there although we could have but we found other spots to enjoy our morning meal for same or less price. Roughly 2000isk $24.00 Canadian.
The beds were very comfortable and the linen was changed daily if you wished.
It was probably the least expensive that we found closest to the centre of town.
We would stay there again if we ever return.

The room was ready even though I arrived early. It was clean but very basic and small. The air got a bit stuffy if you didn't keep the window open. There was no safe in the room and the sound insulation was not the best. The bed was comfy and the free wifi worked well. Breakfast was basic too.
The location is good, with walking distance to the centre. You should note however that if you take the Flybus from Keflavik airport to Hotel Hilda it does not take you in front of the hotel but leaves you at a bus stop which is about a ten minute walk away - this might be an issue if you have a lot of luggage.

The hotel is very cosy and perfectly located, few minutes walking to the city and with good restaurants also in walking distance.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Rooms were clean and breakfast was ok.

Small but warm and cozy rooms. Tiny bathroom but clean. Wifi speed is acceptable. Breakfast variety is OK but one should not expect much.
It must have been a B&B and was upgraded to a hotel when they added a 24h reception service. It definitely feels like a B&B. The staff is very hospitable.
It is very close to the city centre and at a safe and peaceful neighborhood.

I had booked this place to have a bit of a treat for our last two nights in Iceland .
While I recommend it to people who don't mind paying the price . The whole thing screams average .
We had a beautiful room however for the price we should have at least had a reasonable bathroom
Nowhere to put things and the shower always flooded .
We also ate our breakfast in our room as there was no room in the breakfast room.
All and all it was nice for a b&b but I wouldn't stay here again

Hi. Breakfast is normally put out at 7am and we had an 8am pick up at Bus Stop 1. We still had a good Breakfast and left at 745am and got there no problem. If that helps you😁

They will email you a code for the front door and a code for your room a couple of days before you arrive. I understand the room code does not work until 2pm. There is a store room downstairs where people leave their bags and come back later to collect - or perhaps drop off before the roo code works. I assume the front door code works all day.

Reykjavik, Iceland
Dear Glenn S, with regards to shuttle services from Keflavik to Reykjavik, we recommend Gray Line and Flybus as they will bring you directly to a bus stop near the Hotel. Shuttle service tickets can be purchased at the Keflavik airport or online. The designated bus stop for Hotel Hilda is at the City Hall and it is ca. 5 min. walk to Hotel Hilda. If you want to book a trip to the Blue Lagoon you can do this at the hotel or through the website of the Blue Lagoon - we recommend doing this as soon as possible as they are usually fully booked a few day ahead.
