This is a bargain! We got a really big room that was facing the courtyard, it was quiet and it was warm. The breakfast was exellent, even though a woman who was working there was not so nice to some of the guest in the breakfast room, actually she was really rude. The room itself was little bit dated.

If I ever get the chance to come back to Reykjavik, then I would definitely stay here again. I would not consider other hotels because my husband and I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Fron and there is no reason to look further. It is in great location and the hotel is clean and comfortable. Our flight arrived at... More

Great location and a palatial (certainly compared to two other hotels we have stayed in while in Reykavik which charged roughly the same price) sized room. Ask for a room in the backyard courtyard (as opposed to one that borders the street) to ensure a buffer from late night street noise. The buffet is amble and offers a good start... More

This is the second time that I've stayed at Hotel Fron in four months! The fact that I returned says alot about this hotel. The first I came with a friend of mine and we stayed in one of the rooms at the front of the hotel with a small balcony. The room was spacious and clean and the staff... More

I booked Hotel Fron for a two night stay for my wife and myself. The airport shuttle dropped us about 10 metres from the hotel door. We got to the hotel approximately 10:00 but hadn't booked an early check in; despite this we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who explained that this want a problem although our room...

Our stay at the hotel started off a bit badly when we arrived at 6am after two days of flying. I had sent an email prior to our arrival asking to be allowed to check in early, and received a response that the hotel staff would try their best. Upon arrival, when I again asked if it was possible for... More

East access to historic harbour. The trip organisers pick up from the door but some don't drop off as this hotel is on a narrow street. Surrounded by bars & restaurants with a range of shops nearby. Breakfast does what it says; great coffee, cheese, eggs, cereals, yoghurt etc. Restaurant area is clean & has some interesting design details as... More

My husband, 20 year old son and I stayed at the Hotel Fron in late March. The location is unbeatable, right on the main shopping street within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants, bars, shops and attractions. We had a very spacious two-bedroom suite. The room was very clean and the bathroom was a good size. We reserved a parking... More

We recently spent 4 nights at the Hotel Fron. The location was great and it was a good value. Breakfast was included and since food is so expensive in Iceland, we were sure not to miss it. The hotel staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants walking distance to the hotel for dinner as well places to park our car... More
