Great location. Good breakfast. This hotel is located on the main pedestrian street amid many restaurants and shopping. The location could not be better. The rooms we had were very small, but the lobby is quite nice with several different t seating areas, so it did not matter that our room was small. And in fairness to the hotel, they are quite specific on the size of the rooms you are booking. I would stay again, but spring for a larger room. The staff was very helpful.

Alda hotel was my third choice and it turned out to be the best choice. I would stay here again on another visit. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and the hotel is clean. Most importantly, the location was in a great part of the city, which made walking to restaurants and shopping very easy. The convenience of the location is what made my stay much more enjoyable. The hotel does have a restaurant that serve breakfast with a good selection of options. However I only chose to eat there on my last day since I wanted to explore the local bakeries every morning.

Stayed in room 412. We absolutely love the room with balcony and good partial view of the mountain & sea. Room is cosy and lovely. The good point about staying here is that it is really central - many shops around. Reception is helpful. The Brass Kitchen & Bar on level 1 serve really good waffle icecream! The only cons is we can hear people walking pass at night and it can get abit noisy. Also, housekeeping did not top up our shampoo and body soap - luckily we brought our own.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It is is a great location on a road with plenty of shops and restaurants in Reykjavik. We stayed in a triple room which had a double bed and a large sofa bed all which were very comfortable. The room was nicely decorated and warm. Excellent bathroom facilities. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean. Great choice at breakfast and the hotel restaurant and bar served good quality food and drinks. The staff at the hotel are all very polite and attentive. If you are dropped off from coach transfers or tours the hotel is a short walk - 5 minutes from the bus stop due to some of the central streets of Reykjavik being closed to heavy traffic/buses. There are bus stops which are nearby and accessible. Reykjavik itself is a lovely city and we booked trips to see the beautiful country of Iceland. We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during our visit. We loved the hotel, the country and the fantastic people of Iceland. We highly recommend a visit to Iceland and a stay in this hotel.

We stayed at Alda Hotel for 3 nights as a family of 5. We had to book 2 rooms as the family room only accommodated a max of 4. This wasn't a problem for us as our older 2 children (18 & 12) like their own space. The hotel staff made sure we were close, Just a few doors away. In fact, the hotel staff couldn't do enough for us, I couldn't fault any staff member. The hotel itself was in a perfect location, central to all restaurants, bars, shops and the bus stop where we were collected and dropped off after each trip/airport. The Bus stop was less than a 3 minute walk. The hotel was really well maintained, very clean, lovely decor and the beds were really comfortable. The breakfast was included in our break, it was a buffet style layout and the selection of food was great and enjoyable. I would give this hotel a 10 out of 10, they have it all, gym, jacuzzi, steam room. I would love to return to Iceland one day, and I would not hesitate to book this hotel again.

A wonderful hotel set in a brilliant central position in the city. Near lots of lovely restaurants (Harry’s and Arabian delight were particularly good) Lovely room with a brilliant view of the cathedral, which is lit up at night. Amazing breakfast, great choice. All the staff are friendly and very helpful.

We arrived in the early morning before our room was ready. They checked our luggage and we went to the sky lagoon. Rooms were clean and its in a good location for walking around the city center. Breakfast was sufficient. Street parking was no problem and paid for with the easy park app. Front desk employees were friendly and helpful.

The Alda Hotel had great online reviews which was why we picked it. It lived up to every one of them. Before leaving home, we had cancelled a 10-hour South Shore Small Group Tour due to a horrible weather forecast. We inquired at Alda's front desk about another tour to replace it. Not only did Olga research for us, she found an 8-hour Golden Circle Small Group Tour, booked it for us and also was able to change the day of our pre-booked Covid-19 antigen test. The hotel loaned us a converter when I found ours could not fit into the room’s recessed outlets. Finally, when I needed glue for my hiking boot, Olga found a nearby store that carried it. The breakfast buffets featured all the regular fare plus a few specialties like juice made with apple, beetroot, ginger and lemon (tart and yummy). The entire hotel staff bent over backwards to be friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. The room, though simple, was spacious and comfy. We could not have asked for a nicer, better place for a 3-nite stay.
