“Excellent hotel in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stayed in this hotel as part of a tour group , the hotel is in a great location just a few minutes walk to the main shopping street which has some lovely restaurants , pubs & shops . Our bedroom was located a few steps from the reception area it was warm & comfortable but a bit on the small side especially the bathroom & a little out of date. Breakfast was served in the basement & the food was very adequate with cereals , bread , fruit & eggs & tea/coffee machine . We didnt dine in the bar area but had a cocktail & drinks on the first night which were lovely. The hotel has one computer off the reception area that has internet for hotel guests very handy for checking weather reports for the northern lights. Overall a nice hotel in a good location.

I stayed in this hotel for a week, it was nice,clean and comfortable.Reception staff were very helpful and friendly, they gave me wonderful information on exploring the city, and helped me to make bookings for excursions. The location is good, not far frome the center, and breakfast was fine too.

The stay in Reykjavik was fantastic, I'll come back again for sure!

we stayed for 2 nights in this charming hotel near Laugavegur and were very happy. Everything very good and the staff so helpful and friendly. The waiter in the restaurant was very friendly and we had a wonderful meal of lamb one night. The receptionists were so friendly, gave us a lot of information and booked interesting trips for us. The breakfast was really fantastic. Thank you all in Lind! We surely will come again.

The staff here was so friendly and helpful. They would look up information for you, times attractions were open, and also referred me to some great local attractions. The rooms were clean, good view but small compared to USA standards. The breakfast included with your meal was UK standard - lunch meats, breads, sausages and beans. The breakfast had variety for food and drinks. They had "quilt like blankets" on the beds that kept you nice and cozy. There was one computer to use. I had a nice stay there.

My friend and I stayed here for a couple of days while we explored Reykjavic and toured the surrounding area. The hotel staff were friendly upon arrival and allowed us to check in early, which was nice. The room and bath were clean and simple, which is perfect. Breakfast ( was included) and it was good, with a lot of selections. The only downsides were the tap water in our bathroom reeked of sulfur and smelled when the tap was turned on. We had read this was common among the area as a lot of water is geothermal from ground. Finally, do not buy bottled water at front desk as the price is quadruple from what you'd pay in a store....just around the corner! Overall this hotel served its purpose as the location was perfect, the staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean.

We are happy to hear your kind comments and that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Regarding the sulphur smell of the water. It is true that the hot water in Iceland is mainly heated geothermally and because of that it smells of sulphur. The water is very clean and pure and I can assure you that it is only the hot water. If you turn on the cold water from the taps it is excellent to drink and very clean :)

I hope you enjoyed your stay Iceland!

We wish you a wonderful day and hope to see you again in Fosshótel Lind

My friend and I stayed here for three nights recently. The rooms were basic, clean and tidy, but had everything you needed. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the breakfast room was well stocked.

It's not 5* standard, but has everything you need for a nice weekend away.
