perfectly situated in the centre of town, near the shops, bars and restaurants. Not expensive, we booked direct with the hotel and paid ISK 11,700 per day for a double with breakfast. The staff are a bit serious but efficient and will book / amend trips for you. Rooms are not huge, or posh, but they are clean and have... More

We booked this hotel through iceland air and this was the cheapest option of all. You really cant beat the location. Very close to sandholt bakery, bonus supermarket and lots of cafes. Rooms are decent and perfectly fine spot for a vacation. Breakfast is good and free so cant really complain and ofcourse free WIFI

If we had any questions they were more than happy to help. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and most importantly the room was warm... The wifi connection in the room... More

Something to do with Sulphur. All staff were pretty straight faced and never cracked a smile when walking past. I stood at reception for about... More

If you are looking for a decent hotel in the downtown area of Reykjavik, Hotel Fron is well located along one of the main shopping streets and very close to many landmarks and attractions including the new Harpa concert hall. The room was fairly simple but comfortable. The room I stayed in had two single beds and some space. It... More

HOWEVER, when we arrived, we opened the door to our... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from 12th January - we had a double-room (No.419) and whilst a little small it was a good size for 2 people - after all you're not in the room all day. Double bed was comfy - the room was very warm so had to turn down the radiator - no problem... More

We were a party of 8 visiting Iceland for my 40th birthday on 1st January for 4 nights. The hotel is central to everything in reykevik. Our rooms were spotlessly clean. All staff were amazing, including the restaurant staff. We will definitely stay here on our return to Iceland.
