Very nice hotel near Reykjavik and on rd. 1 and near the entry to the Golden circle. Very large room with amenities including cable tv with english spoken channels and queen size mattress not find usually in Iceland hotels. Nice breakfast and free Wi-Fi but we need to connect from the corridor as there were no signal at our room.... More

Rooms are huge, very clean, bright and full of amenities like cable, wifi, coffee makers and balconies. The perfect place to sleep in peace and quiet and enjoy the beauty of Iceland! Hotel has a lounge, pool table, library, bar... More

We were so impressed with the hospitality of this great hotel, and willingness to please. From our very clean room with a fridge (which I needed to store medications), to the delicious breakfast, to the hot tub in the back with a wonderful view, we loved the Hotel Laxnes! And Shaun at the front desk goes above and beyond to... More

Had a wonderful 5 day stay in April 2015. Lovely room with amazing views and friendly staff, especially Shaun, who helped with booking trips. breakfast was traditional but fresh and we loved the hot tub in the snow! We are definitely going back this year!

Quite and nice hotel close to Reykjavik, only 15 mins drive to the center. Clean, functional and well maintained hotel and rooms. Breakfast buffet is sufficient, not to much choice but just enough. Disadvantage is they do not serve dinner, you need to go out. Several restaurants in the area make up for this. 1 min drive from the #1... More

Hotel Laxnes was a warm and welcoming hotel, with a real family feel to it. Shaun and his cheerful staff were very helpful, offering local information and how to get about with transport and tours. Our room was very spacious (there were 3 of us sharing), really well heated with a clean bathroom, cosy kitchenette and comfortable beds. We had... More

I was quite impressed with this place. We stayed for 2 nights and this was a great location for driving to the golden circle, thingvellir and along the south coast to Vik. The parking is great, you can pretty much pull up outside of your room. The rooms are clean and very spacious with excellent facilities (including a small kitchen... More

We are visiting the hotel almost every year. The rooms are great, the breakfast nice and the staff is very friendly.We can highly recommend it! The location is quiet and from Hotel Laxnes nice day trips can be done. The house where Halldor Laxness lived and worked is not far away and close by is also the laxnes horse farm... More
