I am so glad I booked here. It is a little pricey but it is worth it. This Hotel is walking distance to everything and has a wonderful lounge. We had breakfast every morning in there dinning room before heading off to explore and the food was great. The rooms are very European (smaller then an American hotel room and... More

I was allocated this hotel as part of a tour and spent a night here at the beginning of my holiday and two at the end. My first night I had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the street, from which there was slight noise. For my second stay I went up a floor and overlooked the back which... More

I stayed at Hotel Holt in a single room when my friend missed our flight, and then again at the end of our trip in a double. I was able to get a single room at the last minute and they let me check in at 11am, which was great considering I just took an overnight flight and needed a... More

Location slightly off centre. Had a room on top floor, very nice view. Evening meal in the dining room was a wonderful experience, albeit food was only OK, and expensive. But breakfast was a disaster: shared tables, limited seating and very poor selection of food. Better off going out for breakfast IMO. Paintings are great, and the bar is lovely.... More

This was not our first choice originally, but once we arrived, we were delighted to be there for our three night holiday. The location is fantastic, close to the harbour and closer still to Laugevegur and all its shops, bars and restaurants and the hotel itself is elegant and comfortable. The vibe is dark leather furniture, with wonderful artworks in... More

After 10 days around Iceland, including the previous weekend in Reykjavik, we booked a last-minute room at Hotel Holt prior to our flight home. This hotel caters to Americans, which can explain why 4 out of 5 TripAdvisor reviews are written from the USA. Being American myself, I know what we like and expect. Yes, there was a plethora of...

We stayed here one night at the end of our holiday in Iceland. It is on Bergstadastraeti which runs into the main shopping street in the center of town. It is about a 3 minute walk over to the main street. The hotel has nice rooms, not luxurious or anything but nice, clean, and relatively spacious. It was very quiet.... More

What a great find! Lovely bright rooms, smartly laid out, with a great view out west over the city. Very nice king bed -- a relief after ten days of single beds of varying quality in other parts of Iceland. The complimentary breakfast buffet was equally fine, with all the breakfast fixings we'd come to expect in Iceland. That includes... More

Hotel Holt is not your average soulless 4 star house; as soon as you step in, one can feel the history and the special atmosphere of the house. The hotel was built by an icelandic art lover family in the 1960's, and it is still run by the same family. They have a great art collection in this hotel, it's... More

If you think you've seen it all, you're wrong. This is a GREAT city, a great country and, more conveniently , a GREAT hotel. If you're planning to go to Reykjavik, stay here. If you're not, then please change your mind and GO !! Enjoy LOVE Gerald Thomas
