The hotel was overpriced, but we chose it anyway because it was within walking distance from the airport and was convenient for our longer lay-over. We arrived at midnight, so the receptionist was not very friendly: he kept working on his books while we waited to check in. Next day, I wanted to exchange some euro coins, but he would... More

We arrived very late and our room had some issues. We were immediately helped and were even served breakfast at 4 o'clock in the morning! Overall it is a very neat hotel that has very friendly staff and very nice breakfast.

The hotel is clean. But that is all what is actually good about this hotel. It is just worth if you arrive late in the day by plane and the day after you start your Iceland tour from there. So just good for one might after arriving or before leaving if you want to be very close to the airport... More

Room was okay, but way too noisy, as facing a street. Unfortunately, windows in the room cannot be opened, so it was quite warm after some hours of midsummer sun. Service was okay, dinner (halfboard) was less than that. Our highlight was the breakfast, which was really much better than expected.

We enjoyed our stay at Smaril. It was conveniently located (we rented a car). The room was small but well planned, the wifi worked well. The room included breakfast which was all you could want or need for breakfast.

-It's not the best hotel for doing some tourism on the island -it's far away from downtown Reykjavik. You have to walk to the road in front for taking a couple of buses to the centre. -You have a big mall close to the hotel. And, some small restaurants (Asian, pizzeria, etc) -The rooms are basic, clean and neat. Nothing... More

We stayed here for one night when our flight out of RKV was cancelled. Firstly, this hotel is roughly 5 miles from Reykjavik centre so I would not recommend if you're wanting to spend much time in the city. There is a bus into the city every 30 minutes, but the bus stop is a 15 minute walk away at... More

For our first night in Iceland I chose this hotel. Don't even recall exactly how I decided on this place, but it was a mistake. Not ideal location for dining or anything interesting. Located near freeway and random businesses. Was also told I choose a single room and therefore needed to pay more than quoted on booking. Not sure how... More
