“Hmmm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Average but probably good for area. My mate thought it was great but i thought it was a 2star trying to be a 3 star. However location is Ok albeit next to a building site. Staff very helpful. Breakfast continental. Perhaps it is very good for the area!!

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

I really loved this Hotel, Reception was helpful and polite from the young couple on the desk when we arrived to Christian when we left, really nice to have met them all. Breakfast was lovely, just a cold buffet but very nice and fresh. room was really big (on the third floor) and although I had my doubts as we were right next to the lift we didn't hear anything any night which was brilliant. The shower was enormous! I would recommend this hotel to anyone that needs a good clean friendly base from which to do their trips and cannot fault it at all.

Exellent hotel, very new.
The hotel front desk Man Christian was full of imformation about the various tours and the town.
We had a Golden Circle trip by BUSTRAVEL, the Driver/Guide was excellent and should be recommended.You must visit the Blue Lagoon and do the Northern Lights trip but drees up as very very cold after dark!

This was my second visit to this hotel. Its the perfect base to explore Iceland from. The staff are friendly and helpfull, and the whole hotel is clean and warm. The breakfast is fine, when we stayed last year it was lit by night lights which was nicer than the electric light this year. Its only a short walk to the harbour or the centre of town. Iceland is a beautiful country well worth a visit!

Myself & my partner spent 3 nights at Hotel Klettur. We found it to be spotlessly clean in a very modern minimalist style, with friendly & helpful staff. A complimentary continental breakfast was available each morning 7 - 10am. The hotel was in a great location at the edge of the city. A coffee / sandwich shop and a sit in / takeaway pizza place were within a 5 minute walk. A supermarket was approx 10 minutes walk away as too was the beautiful harbor.

We were grateful for the hotel bar happy hour - as drinks in Iceland are quite expensive. However on one evening we couldn't get a seated table as it was taken up by people using the free wifi whom weren't drinking... I would suggest to the hotel that they open up the breakfast area for this at busy times...

My only other suggestion would be that the hotel provides 2 pillows per guest.. Rather than us having to ask.

All in all, we would definitely stay at this hotel if we travel to Iceland again & would highly recommend it to other travelers.

Room Tip: You can upgrade to a balcony room - which is good if you are a smoker. However the views is into ano...

We got back from Reykjavik yesterday, and we were extremely impressed with both Hotel Klettur and all of the excursions that we went on. We booked our stay as part of the Icelandair Northern Lights Tour.

Before we went, we sent a quick email to the hotel to ask for an upgraded room, they handled our request with great ease, and when we arrived we were given a 6th floor room with a fantastic view.

Our room was spacious and clean, with a huge window & stunning views. It came well equip with a kettle, hairdryer, flat screen TV, spacious shower and nice big mirror. When we arrived we found that two pillows between us wasn't quite adequate, but the guys on reception were more than happy to provide us with another two - the bed was extremely comfortable, too.

Everyone on reception works extremely hard - especially Christian, who we found to be particularly helpful. He booked all of our excursions for us and nothing was too much trouble.

Whilst we were there, we used Reykjavik Excursions for all of our tours, the tour guides are VERY knowledgeable and they love their jobs. We did the Northern Lights Tour (included in the package), Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle Tour and South Shore Adventure. I would recommend each and every one - we have learnt a lot about Iceland and they were all great fun.

NB: The receptionist at the hotel will let you know whether or not the Northern Lights Tour is on each night, if your tour is cancelled (due to bad weather) you will have the chance to re-book for the following night.

The breakfast in the hotel was basic (like many have said), but we didn't find this problematic. Everything that you would usually have at home was available; cereal, toast, fruit etc. We were always out very early in the morning for our excursions, so breakfast was a very quick event.

I would recommend waiting until you arrive to book excursions, the reception can help you get the best deals, and you'll find that there are extensive lists of tours that you never knew existed before arriving.

Overall, the hotel was lovely and clean, and in the perfect position for a wonderful trip to Iceland. This is not a luxurious hotel, and it doesn't need to be - we spent no time at all in the hotel - and were out on excursions for the majority of our stay. I am particularly fussy when it comes to hotels, and I thought this was just great.

On a separate note, Icelandair is a WONDERFUL airline - our flight from the UK was just 2.5 hours, and we each had a TV in front of us with a huge selection of films and series. I was extremely impressed and would recommend the Icelandair packages available on the website.

Room Tip: We paid a little extra to have a room on the 6th floor and it was FANTASTIC. We had big windows and...
