“Simple, Clean, and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This Fosshotel is in a great location with an easy walk to downtown and the harbor. We stayed there our first night in Reykjavik and then again our last night in Iceland before heading home to the U.S. Both rooms were very clean and sparse. Our first room faced the front street so there was no real view, but for our last night we had a room on the back side of the hotel and had a beautiful view of the cathedral. By U.S. standards these rooms were very small, but that is how all the rooms we stayed in in Iceland were. The beds were comfortable with good pillows and linens. The hotel offers free WiFi, but the signal was somewhat weak. I had trouble getting on the first day before 6:00 am and then it was fine. Breakfast was included in the rate. It included just about everything and the food was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel to have a nice view of the cathedral.

We really loved the Lind which seems to have been recently updated. Our room was not large, but it was well laid out and comfortable. It is off of the main tourist area which means it is quiet and yet easy to get to all of the nearby attractions. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, they helped us book a tour to the glaciers and waterfalls on the south-east coast, in addition they helped to locate our lost baggage while we spent a lovely afternoon touring Reykjavik.

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steps from the reception area it was warm & comfortable but a bit on the small side especially the bathroom & a little out of date.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.
