You can't beat the Exeter for a stay in Reykjavik!

Review of Exeter Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 May 2024
The Exeter proved to be a *perfect* base for our recent trip to Iceland! As we only had five days in country, we opted to stay in Reykjavik, rent a car and make day-trips from there. The Exeter was super conveniently located in a great part of the city (right on the harbor and walkable to piles of bars, restaurants, shops and sites). Comparatively, the room was reasonably priced and we were thrilled to find a hotel that offered both free parking and an inclusive breakfast (with diverse hot and cold offerings!) which resulted in significant savings. The property itself was fantastic, offering large/clean/modern rooms; a cool, industrial décor; saunas; a bar/restaurant with live music on the first floor that (fun to visit, but not so loud that it affected our stay). They also offer large lockers for luggage storage. The staff was helpful, friendly and flexible. HIGHLY recommend staying at that Exeter!

Great location, good breakfast, check-out time is 12 noon. Quiet in the room. Excellent brand of Shampoo and conditioner (Soley brand). Shuttle stop is also close by. Three out of six employees were helpful and great. Didn't get to use the Dry Sauna room. There is an exercise room.

Cant beat the location, great restaurants within less than a block, 2 places to eat within the hotel, even breakfast and after hours! Right across from the harbor (whale watching tours), walk to Harpa, the main shopping street, right across from bus stop #4 and a hop on hop off bus stop. Hotel sauna/spa (complementary) was huge and amazing. Highly recommend.
