Had a very enjoyable experience at this hotel which, as other reviewers have noted, delivers as advertised. It is a simple, clean, easy place to stay. The location is terrific, I'd even say dramatic, being right across from the square with the large statue of Erikson and the beautiful cathedral. Great memories.

+ Location near Reykjaviks main kitchen is excellent. + Hotel is a bid small, but its price/value ratio is very good. + Very good is that water and coffee is offered 24x7 for free. - Design of rooms is quite outdated - No go: Power/Telephone jacks had been loose (dangerous!) - Bathroom needs serious redesign, looking being last refreshed in...

I am rating this establishment based on exactly what it is advertised to be; clean, simple, friendly, great location, etc. The Hyatt it ain't, but then again the Leifur Eiriksson is considered very reasonable for Reykjavik. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with planning our outings and restaurant reservations. If you enjoy fresh fish, Iceland is the place... More

Did not stay in the main building but in the building approx 100 meters away across other side of the road (No hardship).

Let's keep this simple. Pros Location on top of the hill just a short walk to bars and restaurants. You will not get lost but there are probably better located hotels in the city center. The hotel accommodated early check in and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are clean. Breakfast is good. Cons. The hot water is not... More

Our second stay at the Hotel Leifur Eriksson and no problems found again. This is not a luxury hotel but is comfortable clean and well run. The main reason for return is the location, right opposite the big church so you can always find your way back and a couple of minutes from the bars cafe and shopping in downtown... More

Our room was across the street from the main hotel. It was small and worn but met our needs. The location is perfect to visit key places in the city, shop and hit some great restaurants. A standard Icelandic breakfast of meat cheese bread herring and coffee with a few extra treats.

We stayed here in June 2014. We were allowed to check in at 8 a.m. and, after travelling for a full day, we were very grateful. We were urged to sit down and have breakfast while we waited for them to make up our. A few days into our visit, I had a minor emergency and had to make an... More

I stayed here in February 2014, for 4 nights. Our accommodation looked out onto the church, so not a bad view at all. I would say our room was basic, comfortable & clean. For the price I paid this is what I expected. The breakfast supplied was plentiful. nice touch. With northern light hunts & early start for pony trecks... More
