Just come back from a 3 night stay and had a great time. The room was lovely and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The meal we had in the restaurant was very good and the service was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

My partner chose this hotel for a 5 night break in Iceland. After arriving about 22.30 was surprised that we could still have food in the bar which was a bonus...they had mistakingly given us a twin room instead of a double but within minutes it was sorted and room was changed. Rooms are large and modern and very clean... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the hotel. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. However, we would like to thank the Reception Manager, Sigurlaug Johannsdottir and Ms. Pordergur ( Togga) for their attentions and assistance during our stay. Although the hotel is out of the center, is only about 8 to 10 minutes walking to the center. (there... More

We spent the final leg of our honeymoon at the Grand and we loved it. They upgraded our room since we were honeymooners and it is very clean and the staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. As Ernest Hemingway once said about the ritz, the only reason not to stay here is if you can't afford it. Their breakfast... More

The hotel itself is a decent 4 star hotel. Especially compared to many others we saw in the area the Grand was definitely one of the most modern and in better condition. However it was advertised as being 20 min walk from the centre of Reykjavik which was not quite true. It's 20 min walk to the edge of the... More

Positives: 1 The hotel was well maintained and clean. 2 The staff were very polite and helpful. Downsides: 1 It was located outside of the town centre which meant a £10 taxi ride each way. 2 The food was very expensive and being so far out of town left you with a very limited choice on the menu.

Stayed here for 4 nights in January 2015 and cannot fault the hotel at all. The room was very comfortable with a bath and separate shower. Breakfast was excellent each morning, great choice. The bar food was also excellent, and Happy Hour was most welcome every day! Great that any Northern Lights tours booked are advertised if cancelled, well in... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in early November 2014. I had already researched what the hotel was like before our stay so I was prepared to find it in use for a lot of conferences and for professional people as well as tourists like ourselves. I was also prepared for the distance from the hotel to central... More

Great stay ! Helpfull and happy staff, room with moutains view... bathroom very clean : the "sulphur smell" (as in previous reviews) is normal in Iceland and was only there when taps running. Location is NOT in city center, but hotel provides free shuttle 3 times a day :) Nice bar & tasty restaurant. Really efficient Wifi.
