I was in Reykjavik for business. I really liked the location of the hotel which is close to everything. The hotel is clean, comfortable with friendly staff. Staff was very friendly at all times, check-in went perfect. The rooms are functional and sufficiently large, and clearly lit. Some people may find the lights in the room a bit hard and...

My girlfriend and I chose to stay here for 3 nights and we were certainly not disappointed, The hotel is situated just a short walk from the old harbour and the main shopping area. We visited both areas a number of times and enjoyed the walk, in doing so it allowed us to explore the bars and cafes in the...

The location of the hotel is good but apart from that it didn't stand out in any way. I got a room with window in the ceiling so no chance of looking out into the streets. The reservation promised me breakfast included but it didn't turn out to be true so make sure you have this confirmed when you book....

This is a fantastic, warm modern hotel in great central location of old town Reykjavik. Lots of nearby parking, restaurants and bars. Also close to harbour for boat trips. Extensive breakfast selection, the only negative being that the cooked breakfast was a little cold each morning but it was -6 outside!

I stayed here with my wife for four nights on a recent visit to Reykjavik. The hotel had all that you would expect of a Radisson, but was slightly different as it is housed in a very old building and has been internally modernised throughout. The beds were comfortable and the service very good, we phoned room service for ice...

There are two major benefits this hotel has, one- its location and secondly very friendly reception staff.The hotel itself has a very modern feel in what is a relatively old building. Our major complaint is that there is a distinct lack of storage facilities. We had a junior suite and can't complain about the size of the room but the...
