Myself and my sister stayed at the Hotel Laxnes for 5 night in early March. Room: we had a large spacious room, two beds, 3 door wardrobe, desk with kettle and complimentary tea and coffee, coffee table and sofas (which was a nice touch), TV with mainly news channels which was fine as we weren't in the room too often,...

Large room and bathroom with an actual bath, which is unusual in Iceland. Plenty of local facilities nearby - shops, food outlets, bakery, filling station. Free parking. Close to Reykjavik. We totally failed to understand why this hotel has such good ratings. It was nothing more than OK in every way, certainly nowhere I would return. Located in a commercial... More

The hotel is about a half hour north of Reyjavik center city and is a reasonably priced ($200 USD/night) small tourist class hotel. Iceland is a very expensive location by N. American standards. The location has several restaurant and shopping choices close by, as the hotel has no restauran only a bar. A breakfast buffet is provided in the room... More

I came, I stayed, and went without hitch. Laxness Hotel is very conveniently placed for access to Reykjavik and the north and well priced compared to the city. The rooms and hotel facilities were excellent and staff warm, friendly and multilingual. The locale also has everything one could want.

Hotels in Reykjavik can be quite pricey, especially in the summer. Having stayed in Reykjavik before, I opted to spend my one-night stay in Iceland outside the city to have a different experience, and chose Hotel Laxnes based on the positive reviews, relatively modest price (115 Euro), proximity to the Laxnes Horse Farm (where I had booked a riding excursion),...

This hotel is an excellent choice when staying in Iceland. The staff are very friendly and rooms are very clean. During the day we chose tours from the brochures at reception but not without consulting a very friendly member of staff at the front desk who was very helpful and always knew the best place to visit on the right...

The hotel reception is really helpful for booking trips and advice on helping us when our flight was cancelled. The rooms are good and so are the views. Easy to get to from the airport and check in was fine even at 2 in the morning. Good location as there are a few shops close by.

Just outside the city, nearby bus stop is convenient enough to travel in and out no problem. Very friendly staff, will help with signing up for tours and providing tips and ideas for activities. Nice locations within walking distance of hotel. The stay in Iceland was definitely enhanced by staying in this particular hotel.
