“Clean and stylish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Great views from 6th floor room at the front of hotel but take travel kettle if you want your own brew in the room. Breakfast buffet style was good. Happy hour in the bar area is a must and a great place to meet new people. Staff are excellent and are extremely efficient and helpful. A few restaurants around, the Pizza place next door is a good place to start. Easy 10 minute walk to local swimming baths & spa. Only downside 30 minutes walk to city centre or catch a bus from outside the hotel but have change ready. We were pleased that it was quiet and a comfortable night sleep as the city centre could be bit noisy at night.

Room Tip: Front of hotel has mountain and sea views and possible Northern Lights. 6th floor was quiet.

I had a lovely eight night stay at the hotel. It is minimalistic and modern and has what one need in a business trip. The breakfast could have been more diverse, however it was fresh and tasted good. At the ground floor there is a nice little pizza place I visited couple of times. A 66 North outlet is in the vicinity, in about 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel.

The hotel is about 30-40 minutes walk from city centre, we walked it both ways and it is easy and ok distance. Very minimal interior, modern and standard.
Breakfast is ok, not very much different sorts but good, fresh bread etc. Breakfast restaurant a bit noisy and "fast food looking" interior. Great staff.

In the evening there is only a pizzeria in the same building serving hungry guests, ok menu with other foods as well, we took the pizzas to our room. Good pizzas!

North 66 outlet and other outlets are just 10 minutes from the hotel, away from city center.

Room Tip: Rooms are ok, but avoid rooms with connecting doors as the noise come thru. Also better to ask for r...

We stayed in a triple room with three friends which was a little cozy but there was enough room for our gear etc. Beds were very comfortable and if you stay on the front side of the hotel on higher floors you get a harbor view. Nice European breakfast, and bar that has happy hour. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. I ran down to the harbor and along the waterfront which was about a 5k circuit. Great spa/gym and outdoor thermal pools within a 10 minute walk. A little bit further from downtown but that's a good thing with bars opening until 4am...conducive for sleep! Overall very happy with this hotel and location

Room Tip: They only have doubles on the front side of the hotel but that is the side with the views, ask for t...

We have just returned from our first trip. To Iceland. The whole experience was further enhanced by the comfort and excellent service we received at the Reykjavik Lights. We will definitely return.

Couldn't fault this hotel for their cleanliness, food & staff. Rooms were cleaned every day, breakfast was a continental breakfast consisting of cereals, yoghurts, fresh bread, cold meats, fruit juices and staff are extra helpful, just ask and they would try to help.

The rooms were a little small, but very comfortable. I was there with a mission team. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was European (meat, cheese, yogurt,etc) The fresh bread was absolutely delicious. I would recommend this hotel.
