PERFECTION

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Sept 2019
Not only is this hotel in the perfect location to everything in Reykjavik, (everything is in walking distance), but it is quiet, the beds are cozy, the breakfast is GREAT (buffet with LOTS of options - and a MUCH cheaper option to going out for breakfast...), the staff was so kind and so helpful AND it's only a 15 minute drive to a dark area to watch the Northern Lights. It's also a 10 minute walk to the bus station (where if you're going on a tour, they are unable to drive on private roads, so the bus station is the next best option). I would certainly recommend this hotel to ANYONE going to Iceland.

Junior Suite was ideal for a family of 3 for a week. The location is great, central. Staff are amazing. The art work is some of the best in all of Iceland. I would l highly recommend staying at this hotel.

This hotel is truly unique - it is an art museum but without the museum feel, more like a home with a fabulous collection. If you love art , you will love this place. It is well located too and the breakfast is excellent as well as the bartender. Just remember Iceland is a very expensive place.

Stayed at this beautiful hotel after extending our trip and our original chain hotel didn't have any rooms to accomodate us. SO GLAD they couldn't or we would have never stumbled upon this hidden gem. The front desk staff were so professional and nice, always cheerful and polite. We have a crazy thing about having ice and they filled our ice bucket for us all the time and didn't make us feel uncomfortable about asking for ice. The room was perfect for what we needed, the bed and pillows were comfortable. Having a refrigerator in the room was a great added bonus that we didn't at our first "Chain Hotel" and the fluffy bathrobes made us feel right at home. The location is amazing and right near the shopping area and many attractions in Reykjavik. You almost feel like a local because it's located in a quiet neighborhood. Parking at the hotel was nice and included, we never had any trouble finding a place to park. I can't say a negative thing about this hotel, the staff, or our experience. In fact, we loved it so much we are going back again in a couple of weeks and ONLY staying at the Holt.

The reallty cool thing is the Hotel is also an Art Museum with an amazing collection of artwork throughout the hotel. If you are looking for a charming, boutique, clean and friendly hotel close to so many of the things that make Reykjavik an amazing city to visit then you will not be disappointed with the Holt.

Comfy and well appointed. The receptionist was excellent. Good breakfast as well. Lots of tea and coffee provided, as well as everything you would expect. Very easy to access everything in central Reykjavík. Even prepared us a packed breakfast as we were leaving before 7AM.

Great experience. Rooms were nice/clean. Common areas were very nice. Breakfast was fantastic. The people at the hotel were wonderful, especially Carl. Location was very good...just minutes walking from downtown Reykjavik. The hotel offers off-street parking which was great. If I had one minor nitpick, we couldn't get the drapes to quite black out the window. With so much sunlight this time of year, blackout shades would have been ideal, but it was a minor issue at most. Otherwise, our stay was a fantastic experience.
