This is a lovely looking hotel and perfectly situated opposite the Hallgrimskirja church. When I first booked for me and my husband, I emailed the hotel to request a room in the main hotel with a church view and this is exactly what we got. Our double room (204) was small and basic as was the ensuite shower room but...

The room was tiny but was nice. It was warm and cosy. There were only two channels working on the television. Your shower will smell of eggs but you get used to it. The bathroom is small but it just needs to be treated as a wetroom. The breakfast was nice with a variety of food available. The staff were...

Hotel Leifur Eirksson is located opposite the famous Hallgrímskirkja Lutheran parish church in Reykjavík; which itself made a good focal point to finding your way back to the hotel and an ideal location!, with free parking available opposite the hotel for those hiring a car whilst in Iceland. The Hotel offers a 24 hour service with staff being extremely helpful,...

I stayed here for three nights in the second week of February with three friends. The hotel is in quite a central location which makes getting around the city pretty easy. The rooms seem to be of a decent size and have an en suite shower room. The only issue I would state is that the room I stayed in...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, it was a great location for exploring Reykjavik - really short walk into city centre, the staff were really friendly and helpful - especially when it came to booking our transfers and rebooking one of our trips, and it was always warm and cosy. Rooms were comfy and clean. Not much to...

Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of February. Arrived late but we're greeted and offered directions to somewhere that was still serving food and offered a hot drink (free in the dining area 24/7 as a guest of the hotel!). Friendly staff, clean, warm room, decent breakfast and good wifi! It's in a great location too. Really nothing to...

Although I have rated this a budget hotel, it may be that some won't agree due to the high cost of everything in Iceland. We found the check in to be quick and efficient. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The room was small but adequate with a double bed and en-suite shower. Our room looked out onto the...

We stayed here for three nights in feb 2017 as a middle aged couple. Location is great, right opposite the cathedral with some restaurants and cafes very close by, easy walking into the city centre. the room was a little small perhaps, but as it only slept two it was fine. Ours - 110 - was located in the second...

This hotel is in a central location to enable you to walk around Reykjavik easily. It is also well served. Y the tour operators and buses so it makes sight seeing very easy. The hotel was clean and comfy. The breakfast was ok and I saw most people seemed to be making lunches and packing in their bags quite openly,...

Hello, I'm sorry that you had a bad experience at our hotel. Unfortunately your reservation came in separate and we would have of course put you into the same building had we known about it. Unfortunately we were not notified by the tour operator. It is true that some of our rooms are better than others, and since we had...
