3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

We stayed here for three nights. The front desk was very helpful in planning trips. The room was in a building next door, but that was no problem. Breakfast was very good with lots of cold choices. We had an apartment, which was a bedroom with a refrigerator, stove, etc. The hotel was in a perfect location, on the main... More

My husband and I took a trip to Iceland in early April 2015. We chose Hotel Fron because it was inexpensive and located downtown. We were very pleased with our room; it had just enough space for us with a love seat, a desk, 2 chairs, and a kitchenette. Our room was relatively quiet and I liked that we could... More

This is a comfortable hotel a little our of the centre. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient (particularly when we managed to lock ourselves out of the room safe!😳) We were in the annex and had a very good sized room, complete with sofa and small kitchen area. The bathroom was also a good size, well presented and a nice... More

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in March. We were pleasantly surprised on how wonderful the location was as the hotel is right in the centre of the city and near all of the restaurants and shops. We had a studio apartment which was extremely clean and quiet and had everything we required. The staff were friendly and... More
