Good location (20 mins from Reykjavik), spacious charming rooms. Ours had a great view of the mountains. Cleanliness and breakfast were good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is close to 2 grocery stores, a KFC and sports bar. Id recommend buying stuff at the grocery store for lunch since restaurants are expensive in iceland. I wouldnt... More

We stayed here and it was so charming. Staff was very helpful in planning our travels around the country. Easy car rental right at the hotel. Would make reservations for us and help on out of the way things that many may miss by just using the regular travel companies. It maybe a little unconventional than what travelers are use... More

Arrived after long journey. Easy to find. Reception staff not very friendly. Stayed for 2 nights using it as a base. Room not cleaned etc after first night, clean towels just left. Breakfast adequate, waffle maker made a change from toast, easy to use. Had very large room on second floor which was very quiet and comfortable.

We ended up staying here because I didn’t want to stay in Reykjavik the first night we arrived in Iceland. Location is easy to find and good in relation to the other things in town. The furnishings were minimal and in need for some updates. I figured this was probably the worst hotel room we were going to be in... More

We stayed at this hotel in March this year for a 48 hour trip to Iceland. Thanks to the lovely people at the hotel (Shaun & Nunu?) we were able to experience one of the best trips of our lifetime. Expecting to do just one excursion in such a short period of time, thanks to their recommendations and help we... More

Hotel Laxnes suited our needs perfectly . Not too big and not too ostentatious. Away from the hustle bustle and noise of the city centre but only a 20/ 25 minute bus ride to get into Reykjavik.The views of the mountains from the rooms are wonderful .The rooms have on-suite bathroom and all other normal requirements . There is plenty... More
