we stayed for our first and 2 last nights in Iceland. As a family of three we got a beautiful modern apartment in an adjacent building which had everything we could think of. The location was excellent and the front desk helpful even if a little bit busy. breakfast is an average experience. \we had better ones elsewhere in Iceland... More

Hotel Fron is centrally and very conveniently located on one of the main shopping streets, Laugavegur. On our first visit, we had an apartment (room 108) which had two bedrooms, kitchen (fully equipped) and living area. This would have made a great place to stay for a prolonged visit, since it would have allowed one to avoid the high restaurant... More

The Hotel Fron is a small hotel by USA standards. It was 80 to 90 rooms and is located on the main shopping street in the center of the old city. The rooms are on the small side but quite adequate; very clean and has a helpful staff. There is also a restaurant in the hotel which is open for... More

If you want to be in the downtown heart of Reykjavik with easy access to the city's main restaurant area and harbour then you should consider booking a stay at this hotel. It doesn't seem to be one of a chain and, to be honest doesn't look much from the outside, but its position on one of the two main,... More

We booked this hotel because it was situated in the centre of Reykjavik, and because the rooms/small apartments looked very inviting. On the photos the hotel seemed very romantic for a couple. We were wrong. Yes, the hotel has'nt moved - so it's located on the main street. But the room was warm (something was wrong with a heating, and... More

Wev spent an enjoyable week at Hotel Fron in early June. We had a fine room/suite that was at the back and was very spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were helpful, courteous and well-informed. We enjoyed the daily breakfast and the location was brilliant. We walked everywhere, quite easily. The little Mexican restaurant was a nice little surprise as... More

This hotel is right in the city centre, just a few minutes walk from most of the restaurants, bars and pretty much everything in Reykjavik. Had a room from the back of the hotel, which was probably good because the main street becomes a big outdoor party during the weekends. Wireless worked well, the room was well maintained and OK....

My son & daughter in law made a reservation at Hotel Fron two and a half months prior to their stop over in Reykjavik July 1. Hotel Fron got a good review in a travel article, and they were excited to be staying there. The reservation was totally confirmed. When they arrived however, they were told by the reception desk...

HOTEL/LOCATION: This hotel has probably the best location in Reykjavik. It is on one of the main walking streets, a short walk to dining, shopping, major attractions; all the major tour companies (like Iceland Excursions) which I highly recommend you use while there for airport transfers, trips to the Blue Lagoon and other landmarks do pick you up at the...
