Stayed 6 nights at this hotel. This hotel is located outside of Reykjavik, but next to the highway and is recommendable for people who has own transportation. The rooms are nice, the cleaning is just basic and could be better. The breakfast is good and the staff are polite and helpful.

This hotel was adequate but lacks the amenities that make for a pleasant stay. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but no coffee maker, no hair dryer, no nothing other than a bed and furniture. It's kind of out of the way but it's affordable. The breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. You can get coffee... More

We were very impressed with the Hotel Smari. It was clean and roomy with a great breakfast. The staff could not have been nicer. Maria at the front desk, went out of her way to answer and help with any questions and ideas she had. She directed us to a nice hot spa and swimming center in Kopavogur. All in... More

We ended our tour of Iceland at this hotel. We booked in and then returned the hire car before enjoying a reasonable meal in the restaurant. Breakfast was available from 5am in time to check in for an early flight. The breakfast was very good. Service at the hotel was efficient and friendly and the room was fine. It did... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a layover. I picked this hotel because of it's proximity to the airport. I paid when I booked the room but upon arrival realized their nightly rate was actually less than what I paid, which I was a little bummed about. The rooms are very basic and are not really... More

I spend a few days in Iceland on a stopover going to and return from Denmark and the USA. I spent a total of three nights at the Hotel Smari and was happy I had done so. My first visit I had reserved a small room for one. It was neatly set up and very clean. I knew I was... More

We visited Reykjavik for a week just before Christmas having booked only car hire at the airport and Hotel Smari. The plan was to plan daily trips according to actual weather forecast. The very first day we asked the hotel staff for an advice about Northern Lights show possibility and good location for watching. We got it, went there and... More

We stayed here for 1 night in February, it was a good location for us because it was on route from the airport to our next stop. Beds were hard and pillows small. But the room and hotel was spotless. Breakfast was very good. We would stay here again.

The hotel is located just off the centre of Reykjavik, by the major thoroughfares surrounding the city, thus highly convenient if you have a car and wish to explore the various destinations within easy reach from Reykjavik. The room is large and the furniture is dated, but very clean, comfortable and everything in perfect working condition. The bathroom is simple... More

basic rooms, average breakfast. Receptionist who was not sure what number we shall dial from our room to reach reception. No AC. Shower from bathroom separated with curtain only, so guaranteed wet floors in the bathroom. I guess OK price/quality ration for Iceland but nothing special. OK for overnight stay but nothing more. Next to the highway, so can be... More
