On the main road. within easy reach of harbour, shops, restaurants, tourist information. Road closed from 11am, so not good if carrying your luggage is a problem. Pubs also on street but double/triple glazing kept noise to manageable level. Good breakfast,helpful staff, lovely bed. Being English we would have liked a kettle in our room. but did have microwave, cooker,... More

Nice centrally location hotel, would recommend asking for rooms on upper floors of back building as the lower floor, partially underground is dark and furnishings not as updated. Front desk staff congenial .Included breakfast just ok, food staff a bit bossy.

A beautifully situated hotel in the older part of town right in the middle on the main shopping street. Breakfast is included & will set you up for the day-- very hearty! the rooms are spotless with the normal appliances and amenities. A great plus is the front desk staff. They are very informative & make excellent recommendations & give... More

After a thorough search via both Trip Advisor and other online sources, I chose Hotel Fron for my daughter and I earlier this month, May, 2015. Having stayed there three nights, we were completely impressed. The room was large with large windows and fully equipped with a private bathroom, refrigerator, kitchen sink and free wifi. The small but modern flat-panel... More

we had an apartment studio in the back building and had another floor above us. Found the walls paper thin and could hear EVERYTHING!!!! We went to Vik for 2 days and our room wasn't cleaned at all. Found the water really strong smelling of sulphur and felt slimy in the shower. Front desk staff were super helpful and very... More

Great location in the main area of the old town within 10 mins easy walking of harbour, tourist and local buses, eateries and shopping within a few steps. HOWEVER, I had a street front room so if post-pub noise bothers you (anytime from 10pm till 6am) perhaps ask for a rear room. A friend was in a back room and... More

We had a studio apartment in one of the rear buildings, which was very quiet despite warnings about noisy nighttime patrons at nearby bars. The decor was Scandinavian modern, but it needed a bit of refreshing; for example, there was a stain on the sofa. There were no rugs on the floors. Bathroom was small. Breakfast was quite good. Staff... More

Great location, wonderful hosts, couldn't be in a better location with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Look down one of the side roads and there is that beautiful water and a snowy mountainous backdrop -- what more could anyone want? Definitely improved our chances of returning to Reykjavik. (Iceland is a beautiful country that more travelers should seek... More

This is a super hotel, right on the main street with lots to see and do. The staff were just lovely and helped us book all of our trips, advising who was better value etc. They suggested we go to see the Northern Lights the same night we arrived as it was perfect wether - and they were right! It... More

It's not fair for me to review this hotel yet since we're not going to Iceland until July, but I wanted to comment on their customer service thus far. We chose this hotel based on price and Tripadvisor reviews. I e-mailed them last week with a bunch of OCD questions to confirm our reservation, ask about early arrival, tour booking,... More
