Location close to the inner city, nicely decorated and great breakfast. Access only by ringing the doorbell, sort of B&B like atmosphere. Very structured, so nothing is done unless it is per the rules. For instance, no check in before 3 PM even if the room is vacant. The owners/operators are a nice couple of gentlemen, one working in the... More

Hotel Phoenix is no less than the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Everything was clean and nice. But the most important thing for me is the atmosphere and there was plenty here. The owners were kind and very helpful. We had lots of laughs, 'cause the owners had a good sense of humour (in my opinion). I really enjoyed... More

It is located in the main street of Reykjavík. The employees are wonderful, really helpful, dedicated to their job and always pleased to provide you any information or advice you may need. The breakfast comes from heaven: all the coffee you want, orange juice, milk, ham, cheese, butter, fresh tomato, fruit marmalade and a great "skyr" a typical icelandic yoghourt.... More

As a woman of a certain age, traveling alone, I like to research carefully before booking a hotel. This hotel had everything I was looking for. A little bit "out" from the very center of town, but within easy walking distance of the main shopping street, it was quiet and perhaps the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in; the... More

We stayed in Hotel Phoenix during our Iceland trip and were very happy with it. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the whole hotel has a good vibe to it. The two gentlemen who run the hotel were immensely nice and helped us with everything we needed.The breakfast is lovely!

Large comfortable room, impeccably clean. The evening turn-down service was a surprise but it shows they care. The breakfast included the best Skyr we had throughout our trip. Great hospitality from our hosts who are genuinely interested in making sure guests have a great stay in Reykjavik. This is one of those places where I would be confident of getting... More

I checked out all the hotels on Trip Advisor etc. before booking a 5 night stay with my wife this July. It sounded the best and it turned out to be the best. Very reasonably priced, perfectly located for the centre, peaceful, perfect service and absolutely spotlessly clean and well-managed. It is a 5 star ***** hotel, a hidden gem,... More

Small, cosy hotel run by two lovely and caring gentlemen. We stayed there for 6 nights and that was way too short. Wish we knew it and chose to stay longer. We stayed on the top floor and our room has a loft which was awesome. The room was very nice, tidy, neat and everything. Breakfast was also good and... More
