“4 nts stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nts at the start and 2 nts at the end of a 9 day riding tour with Ishestar and having previously stayed at the majority of the Fosshotels around Iceland this was as great as the others. Don't complain about not having Wifi ...your on HOLIDAY! Great breakfast and professional and knowlegable service from reception. Had a sea view room for the 1st 2 nts which was great our last 2 nts were in a standard room which was equally good but without the Sea view..but after 9 days horseriding we were so tired it didn't matter anyway!

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in May 2013. The hotel is relatively basic, but clean and serves a purpose as a base whilst in Reyjavik. Room was OK, a little tired, bathroom relatively basic. Breakfast was good, although didn't quite understand the hype of the waffles on Tripadvisor as they were rather messy to make (most people didn't quite understand the instructions so waffle liquid was everywhere!). Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was great, we walked almost everywhere.

Good location, close to town and the waterside.
Come on Fosshotel it's 2013 even the very small, remote farm stays offered free wifi. Surely the price of the room could cover this. We couldn't park on site which wasn't ideal and housekeeping decided to knock on our door and wake us up just after 8!
The staff at breakfast were non communicative at best verging on rude. Our room was reasonably large with a nice view but the reception on the news channel was appalling. We complained and apparently it's a known problem which management haven't dealt with. I would choose somewhere else to stay.

We recently stayed at this hotel in Reykjavik and had a fabulous room overlooking the water. We were on the 5th floor so were not bothered by the buildings across the street and could enjoy the view. The staff were excellent and very helpful calling to arrange a transfer for us and providing information of Reykjavik. The breakfast was great, lots of variety and tasty. The location very central and easy to access the downtown and major attractions. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view and it was excellent. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the wate...

Stayed here at the end of April 2013 and nothing but good to say about it. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, room was a reasonable size and very clean, hotel is in an excellent location.

Iceland itself is a wonderful place, breathtaking scenery..we did the South coust tour and the Grand circle, both well worth doing. Thanks to the rep on the South Coast tour we were amazingly lucky to see the Northern Lights too!!

the location is fantastic-right across the street from the coastal walk, and two blocks from the main gallery, shopping, and food district. The desk staff was helpful and nice, but apparently there is an issue with management. Not that I watch a lot of tv, but after a long day of enjoying everything Iceland has to offer, I like to watch a little news before bed. There was one English channel, from UK, which was fine. I am from the US but they covered all the major world news so it was good enough. The sound kept cutting in and out. I asked about that at the front desk and they said people had been complaining for weeks but the manager was ignoring the complaints. The rooms weren't very nice. The bathrooms really needed a good scrub down, and the carpets were disgusting. There was also peeling paint. The curtains could have been heavier given the summer midnight sun. The restaurant offers a buffet breakfast but it's pretty gross and you are told to bus your own table. I feel the rooms are overpriced too. So, I wouldn't stay there again. There were nicer places in the same location that were less expensive.

Good value for Iceland. A comfortable, if not very big room. A wardrobe with 8 hangers and no drawers, so we had to live out of our suitcase. Television had very few channels, and the quality of the sound made it very difficult to make out. Bathroom small but adequate, although the shower curtain did smell of damp. If staying here you should ask for a room high up, facing the front, for the view across the water.
Excellent breakfast buffet, Scandinavian style, with a waffle maker.
There is soup available to buy whenever you come in. There is a happy hour in the bar from 5 to 7.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Good location near the main street and with free parking.
