This hotel is a real gem. The exterior might look a bit rundown yet when you get into the lobby and see an interior – wow. The large comfortable inside area and amazing pieces of art of renowned Icelandic painters on the walls give the impression that a lot of money has been spent on interior. The staff are rather...

Hotel Holt is a very unassuming looking hotel, and has a very welcoming and helpful staff. It is not inexpensive--for our $460 per night we had a one bedroom suite with a bedroom and a sitting room, so it was enough for the three of us traveling as family. The room was not tiny, as many European hotel rooms can... More

Staff exceedingly helpful, location was terrific - since we didnt rent a car, we were able to walk back and forth to town, took day tours. Continental breakfast was perfect. Nice rooms, clean, had no need for any other amenities. Would definitely stay here again

My husband and I enjoyed four nights at the Hotel Holt recently, and were impressed by the quality of the staff and the facilities. The hotel itself is older and well furnished with beautiful art in its public spaces. The rooms are nicely decorated and have all the amenities of a four star property. The hotel is pleasantly situated away... More

Beautiful old hotel on a quiet block walking distance from everything....perfect. Original (and meticulously maintained) vintage interiors evoke the luxury of another era. The Hotel Holt is a wonderful, warm and comfortable place to start and end each day.

Stayed here for a week during my first trip to Reykjavik and will stay here when I return. The hotel is old with lovely wood interiors and more original art sitting around than any of the museums we visited while there. The bar alone has dozens of old sketches from an artist that frequented the site years ago and elsewhere... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay at this hotel. The rooms were very nice. The hotel was well located to walk to the central area of the city. We were most impressed with the wonderful staff who were to a person exceptionally kind, informative and eager to be helpful.

My wife and I just returned from an incredible 8-day trip to Iceland and for the last two nights stayed in Reykjavik at Hotel Holt. The hotel is very stately and has an incredible private art collection that adorns all common areas (many of which are richly wood-paneled) and rooms. The rooms and bathrooms have an upscale clean feel, and... More

We found the hotel to be very convenient with an exceptional staff. Our room was upgraded to a suite which means we probably paid too much to our agent. The rooms in Iceland are quite warm so we had the window open often in spite of the cold weather.

very nice hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff! Rooms were very pleasant. Breakfast was delicious. Only downside was the location was away from the center of town, but this was minor as it was a relatively short walk to restaurants and shops.
