We only stayed two nights at this Hotel on our first and last days of our vacation to Iceland and we really enjoyed our stay. Both rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The Icelandic art that decorate the hotel is incredibly interesting - there are all kinds of artistic genres and its like visiting and art gallery within the hotel.
We did not eat at the restaurant or have breakfast at the hotel, so I cannot comment about the food. However, I appreciated the convenience of having a restaurant/bar and breakfast available on site.
The location is on a residential street a couple blocks off the main shopping area of Reykjavik. It is very convenient to many restaurants, bars, shops, tourist attractions and an amazing bakery about a block away. I liked being in a residential area as it was quieter than the main road. It was a great spot to sightsee around Reykjavik! Plus, if you have a rental car, there is parking available too.
My first night, I did have a complaint about my room. I had reserved a double bed and was given a room with two twin beds just pushed together (not even a double bed mattress pad covering the the two beds. ) I called the front desk and some discussion they changed my room to what I had reserved. On my next stay at the end of the week, I was upgraded to a suite with a lovely view of the downtown area. I had also forgotten my adapter plug in my room the first night and they found it and returned it to me on my next stay. Excellent customer service!
Overall, I think Hotel Holt is a great place to stay in Reykjavik and I would definitely stay here again on our next visit to the city.
