We stayed at this hotel in April 14 as part of a very special birthday surprise. The room was lovely and clean, bed was comfy and the bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice which is what was needed for the long days of exploring. Lovely hot soup available in the evening to warm you up after... More

The staff are helpful and enthusiastic and our suite was large. Location good, but rooms and landings need updating. Stained carpets and chairs not great, it wouldn't take much investment to improve it. Apart from that it felt clean. Reception gets crowded at peak times and checkin can be slow. There's a good choice at breakfast, but again, gets v... More

Stayed in Iceland for 4 nights in October. Hotel is good, tidy and clean. It is well placed, only five minutes walk from the centre of town, even for my wife who requires a stick to walk. My teenage son had a separate room and was very happy with it. The staff are very courteous and helpful. I will use... More

Lots of pluses, location is excellent - five minutes walk from the City Centre, but right on the coast road and convenient for Old Harbour area. Breakfast fine, our room was fine and beds comfortable, very helpful reception staff. One negative - the shower in our room had curtains not glass surround, very difficult to turn in without getting shower... More

We stayed in the Baron for a long weekend in Reykjavik booked as part of a package with Icelandair. The location sold this hotel to me, as I thought, with its views of the seafront, if the Northern Lights were to appear, we might see them from our window more readily here. They didn't appear for us, nor on our... More
