We booked this hotel as we had read great reviews on trip advisor. We were looking for a small hotel as we wanted a more intimate, friendly environment. It's not in the centre of reykjavik so there's less light polution, making it a great location to see the northern lights. There is a beautiful waterfall just 10 minutes walk from... More

We booked this hotel for two reasons, the chance of seeing the Northern lights and the hot tub. The first night there was a hint of the lights that quickly faded. We had arrived late and were looking forward to going in the tub in the snowy landscape. Initially we were told we would need to wait an hour for... More

We stayed in January when it was cold and the nights were long. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. Our room was large (and warm) with comfy beds and, no matter what time of day, there was always hot water. There isn't a huge amount to do in Mosfellsbaer and the choice of restaurants and bars is limited... More

Just had such a pleasant stay at Hotel Laxnes! Sean was incredibly helpful before our trip and was just as kind and helpful once we arrived. It was so easy to book a tour through the hotel and Sean was able to help with all of our requests. The hotel itself is beautiful and conveniently located next to a shopping... More

I have just returned this morning from a three night stay at The Laxness, it was brilliant and the staff were amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and they sorted all our tours and transfers very smoothly. The hotel is clean and functional with everything you would need including a European plug adaptor for the girl who forgot hers!! We... More

My daughter arranged a weekend stay at Laxnes with Northern Lights tour. What a gem this place is. Close to the city of Reykjavik, but also on the outskirts and on the way to the 'Golden Circle' tour (great value and brilliant day out - do it!) The Northern Lights tour collects from the hotel itself and we were lucky... More

Very warm and welcome stay. The owner was very helpful!! The area is away from Reykjavik so there is less light pollution making it very possible to see the Northern lights without taking a tour. A great stay

The triple easily fit us and the mountain views were nice when the weather was accommodating. during our stay, a bad storm hit and the staff was more then willing to give us advice on where would be okay to go and what time to...
