We stayed in Laxnes for three nights in June. This was a great little place especially since we were on a budget. It was about a 20 minute bus ride to the centre of town. The bus stopped right outside the hotel and came out every half hour. It ran till late and cost about £2 per journey and exact... More

There is a lot to like about this hotel just outside of Reykjavik. Very friendly staff, good breakfast, clean rooms, free parking and wifi, easy access to major roads, and lots of eating options around town. Check out some of the local food stores or familiar chain restaurants. Shower is hot and also enjoyed the heated towel rack and shades... More

When we booked this hotel we were aware that it was about a 20 minute drive from Reykjavik which suited us as we hired a car at the airport and we than did not have to fight through Reykjavik traffic on our way to see & experience as much of the country as possible in 3 days.It is situated on...

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Hotel Laxnes very much. The rooms were clean, comfortable and more spacious than any other hotel we stayed in. To ensure our comfort, they upgraded one of our two rooms to include a sitting area at no cost. They staff was also friendly and helpful, allowing us to use the hotel's washer/dryer in... More

We just came back from Iceland and Hotel Laxnes was the second hotel we stayed in. The first was in Reykjavik in the city center therefore we had a comparison point. The first hotel while in the center was super noisy and that made it really hard to sleep. Plus while it was a decent size it doesn't compare to... More

We are simply at a loss about the 5* reviews for this hotel and even questioned if we'd got the wrong place! My boyfriend and I ended our 11 day road trip at this hotel, with the intention of having a relaxing evening to unwind in the hot tub before our flight home the next day. But we couldn't wait...

A wonderful family run hotel in Mosfellsbaer, Iceland. Surrounded by mountains, it is an idyllic location from which to explore Mosfellsbaer and the surrounding area, which includes the world famous Laxness Horse Farm - a visit here is a must! The rooms are spacious and very clean and some rooms have large opening windows to allow for fantastic views of... More

I arrived early at the hotel with my sister. The staff welcomed us and showed us around the hotel and to our room, they gave us the breakfast times, local information, and were helpful with all questions we had. We had a great few nights sleep here and the breakfast was very handy and had more options that most hotels... More

Hotel Laxnes is an ok place to sleep. Room was pretty nice, but no fridge. The main road noise is audible to the 2nd floor rooms. KFC and supermarket right across the street. Breakfast is nothing special. WiFi is not reliable. The hotel is at some distance from Reykjavik. 30 min by car to the restaurants and sights of Reykjavik... More

We stayed at Hotel Laxnes for 6 days in May 2015. We were extremely happy with our accommodation. The staff was excellent. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful from reception, bar staff to cleaning staff. We arrived late in the morning and were allowed to check in early to room 7. It was very big, clean and bright. The beds... More
