This hotel, located at the very epicenter of Reykjavik's sites, had easy access to everything, including a huge parking lot across the street. The museums, shops, and restaurants nearby made staying at the Radisson Blu 1990 an absolute joy. Also, their breakfast buffet was comprehensive and yummy, from both a typically American palate and one of a more Nordic leaning.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in February of this year. The holiday was fantastic but made even better by this hotel. From our arrival to our departure, staff were attentive, helpful, friendly. The rooms are lovely and cleaned daily, we enjoyed breakfast every morning. I could not recommend this hotel enough!

The hotel is very accessible to restaurants, bars and shops in Reykjavik. The hotel also can organize Northern Lights trips from the front desk. The rooms were a little small and public parking is located across the street which you will need to pay for daily except weekends. We were are the second level so we can hear party-goers having...

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room we stayed in was large and the bathroom was oversized which was nice. You really can't beat the location of this hotel in Reykjavik. The hotel is right by the harbor front and within walking distance of some nice restaurants. The restaurant and bar in the hotel... More

1st day, we checked in quite late- after mid-night. There was no one at the reception then we needed to wait (it means anyone can come up to the guest floor - poor security). In our room, there was a left over food in a fridge and the bath room was not cleaned well (hairs in the tub and the... More

I'll start by saying that the main selling point of this hotel is its location. Really perfect location for sightseeing in Reykjavik. We met a number of tourists who were trekking in from much further afield hotels. On to the hotel, I wasn't a huge fan of the minimalist style. That said, everything was good quality and clean. The room... More

We love Radisson Blu hotels, and this one was no exception. The breakfast was great (included, but may not have been worth it at the pay price), and they even helped us pack some sandwiches for our day tours. Right across the street from the hotdog stand, across from Harpa, a few blocks from one end of the main shopping... More

Let me preface this by saying I work for Carlson, but my review is impartial. Loved this hotel. The location is ideal for exploring Reykjavik. Shopping and restaurants are nearby. The hotel is two blocks from Grayline, which offers all kinds of tours. Our room, 403, overlooked the world famous hot dog stand where President Clinton once sampled the local... More
