We stayed at Hotel Laxnes as part of a Groupon deal, as I hadn't wanted to stay in town (as that hotel offered had bad reviews and I thought if it were anything like London it would be rowdy...needless to say, i've since learnt Icelanders have far better manners than the English and staying in town would probably have been...

We enjoyed our stay in October, room was fairly basic but clean, decent selection of food for breakfast. A few restaurants and shops nearby, not far to get into Reykjavik and good location for excursions though better if you've got a hire car. Staff at the hotel very helpful.

Very warm rooms (no fridges in rooms but cold windowsills!). Staff very helpful and efficient. It is 3* but for a short visit that's all you need. Rooms a bit spartan but warm and comfortable. Beds comfortable. Breakfast basic but I like porridge so fine with me! Tours collect from hotel, nearby facilities for snacks/coffee & cake. Food in sports... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The place is 3* and that is reflected, but the hotel is new, the staff are great, and there are a few local amenities nearby. There is a good bus service to reykjavik downtown about every 30 mins I believe, and most excursion providers will pick up from the hotel which is handy! Simple but... More

We returned to this hotel after having stayed in Dec 2011. Love this place! Views from rooms are amazing. For the location, you do need a hire car. It's approx 15-20 min drive from central Reykjavik, 50 mins-1 hour from airport. Staff very friendly and helpful, especially with regards to advising about trips! Hotel has everything you need for a... More

Stayed here for the first week in December 2012 and 2013. Just a lovely, warm, clean and value for money hotel, set in a great location, with friendly staff and friendly locals who frequent the bar. We give a score of 5 for value for money, rather than for facilities and amenities. You get more than what you pay for,... More

The staff of this hotel make the place. They provided a very warm welcome and were helpful in booking excursions on our behalf. The rooms had been refurbished and were adequate and clean, albeit a little too hot at times with no air conditioning available. The bar has a traditional feel with a good selection of beverages although the place... More

I would recommend the hotel laxnes. Nice comfortable beds. Lovely view of mountains. The staff were helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and filling. Coffee was nice. All in all a good stay. I would stay again if i was in iceland. My only recomendation is you should hire a car.

Other reviews catch a lot of helpful information (mountain view room, very helpful Shaun, not much in the way of food or activities nearby). The city bus does stop just at the hotel entrance, runs frequently, and goes by the Reykjavik Excursions tour center. Icelandic Excursions/Grey Line will pick up at the hotel. Really good, fresh breakfast. With that and... More
