The all black decor did not appeal to us, but the hotel is extremely well located and the service, particularly Hannah at the reception desk, is excellent. Breakfast (not included and rather expensive) was good and we ate there most mornings since it was convenient and the buffet extensive. One thing you should know-Reykjavik is extremely noisy at night. They... More

We stayed at the Radisson Blue 1919 Hotel for two nights after spending 8 days in London. Iceland is a beautiful country, and the hotel staff were so helpful to us. The excellent front desk staff helped us set up our all day Circle Tour, as well as helping to arrange pick up from the hotel back to the airport... More

It was good. Slap bang in the centre of the capital. Second time tried the Hilton a bit of hike into town. Third time 1919. There is a pattern here. Fourth time 1919. Go figure. The bar is fantastic, the restaurant is tip top, not more I can say really.

we stayed here one night before joining a cruise - in retrospect, I wish we had come a few days earlier so we could see more of the city. But the location was perfect for walking around - up to the cathedral, to city hall to see the great relief map of the country and just meandering around the city... More

This hotel is in a great location for tourists visiting Reykjavik - great restaurants nearby as well as shops and museums. However, the front desk staff was terrible. We arrived at 7:30 am and were told our room should be ready in 90 minutes. We opted to have breakfast in the hotel dining room, which we enjoyed, and returned to... More

I absolutely loved my week at the Radisson Blu 1919. We had a lovely room that was perfect for us - large, attractive with all necessary amenities. The location is perfect as you can walk around the city center, along the water, up to the church or inland a bit to the local pools. The staff was wonderful as well.... More

This is a smaller, charming hotel right in the heart of the city--perfect for walking everywhere. It offers a lovely buffet breakfast. The hotel staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Rooms are attractive. The hotel even has several parking spaces right outside the front door if you rent a car (driving in Iceland is easy). There are great restaurants nearby... More

This hotel was recommended by several friends due to it's location. Most of the staff, but not all were helpful and friendly. The bar is a great place to gather before or after dinner. We spent three nights there and found our room clean, a little dated but overall satisfactory. I'm not sure I will ever be converted to a... More
