Hotel Holt
Ranked #11 of 55 Hotels in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2017

The hotel staff and accommodations were fabulous. The Holt was right in the middle of the city which made it easy to get around. The only drawback was the fact that busses are now unable to travel to the hotel due to a new city ordinance. That meant lugging our luggage 6-7 blocks uphill from the nearest bus station and having to arrive up to 45 minutes early at the bus stop to make sure we didn't miss an excursion bus or minibus.

The Holt Hotel was excellent, it was the perfect location within walking distance of everything. The hotel room and bathroom was spotless and in general the hotel was extremely clean. Breakfast was delicious with plenty options to choose from. The receptionist were friendly and very helpful when it came to making recommendations for booking tours etc. If you are travelling to Iceland it is definitely worth considering the Holt Hotel as a place to stay.

Excellent location. Walk to everything. Lovely European-like ambiance. Museum quality paintings, sculptures, furniture, oriental carpets and dark wood paneling. Outstanding front desk staff. Generous breakfast buffet. First class restaurant with select dishes and wines.

Room Tip: Room darkening curtains were very welcomed with the long daylight hours.

Stayed at the Holt on two separate nights prior to and after a fishing trip. This is an old established hotel. It shows it in many aspects. A lock on my room door was difficult to open until we worked out the knack of opening it. The carpet on the stairs was a little frayed. The wonderful collection of Icelandic Paintings had obviously been collected with pride over the years. The electric plug in my second room was broken and needed to be replaced. The decoration was somewhat old fashioned but comfortable. The rooms and ensuite were clean but the television in my second room could only pick up 3 channels , even with resetting , whereas my friend in another room had several more. We did not eat in the hotel but I was advised by a local chef that its restaurant was considered one of the best in Reykjavik. The front office staff were excellent and most helpful. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of the town.This is the sort of hotel one returns to because one is made to feel welcome and its always pleasing to see an old friend again.

Excellent hotel. Great location and reasonably priced. Within a short walking distance of the main strip of downtown Reykjavik. The rooms are comfortable with darkening curtains as darkness doesn't really arrive in July. A great place to stay with kind and helpful staff.
