After a long trip and a pushing our suitcases up the hill to the hotel on a cool rainy day, we arrived at the Holt. The outside of the hotel didn't excite us but the lobby was wonderfully warm and comfortable. The young lady who checked us in gave us so much information about the town and country of Iceland. We were upgraded to a suite and had a comfortable stay. The bathroom was a bit small but well appointed. We had dinner in the dining room downstairs and it was a fantastic meal. The lamb was superb and the chocolate mousse was the best I've ever had. If you decide to stay there be sure to get transport from the airport that can take you to the door.The walk up and down the hill is very steep.

Stayed: May 2018

Friendly, warm, and helpful staff, delicious food, beautifully decorated with original Icelandic artwork. A lovely boutique hotel within easy walking distance of shopping and restaurants. I have stayed there on two occasions and truly enjoyed myself each time.

I picked this hotel based on reviews especially for location (close to the BSI station and just a few blocks off the main busy streets in downtown Reykjavik). The rooms are quiet and we were able to get a good nights rest after long day tours. I would say the location is perfect. But the best point of the hotel is their wonderful staff. We arrived in the morning tired from a long night of travel. Lucky for us we were able to check in right way. Carolina (spelling?) was accommodating and helpful. I had questions about the pick up point for tours booked the next two days. She explained about the no bus zone and made two calls to the agencies to confirm times and locations. She told me to go upstairs and rest. When we were ready she would follow up with me on information. Sure enough a few hours later, we came down and she had our pick up information. (She didn’t have to make these calls for me). At my request, she also made a few recommendations for dinner that were spot on. This is just one example of our many encounters during the 5 days. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we return to Reykjavik.

Clean, nice, but light was comming in during the night in June. So cortains not enough to block the light.

The breakfast is good value for money.

The reception people are nice and helpfull.

Too much money for an avarage room.

Room Tip: One person room is very small.

Dear Niels76,

I am extremely happy to see that you enjoyed the breakfast and our services, our team strives to make our guests feel welcome and is always happy to help in any way they can.

The Icelandic summer days are really long and in the middle of June the sun almost never goes down. Which can be amazing after a long winter. I can fully understand that it can be hard to get used to it, even with the blackout curtains that are in the rooms.

I hope you will consider staying with us on your next visit to Reykjavík!

Warm regards from everyone at Hotel Holt,
Emma Rún
