We visited the alda hotel in Jan 2022, the hotel staff were always friendly and helped when needed. The room was immaculate and cleaned daily and of good size. Upon arrival staff gave two room keys and a hotel mobile which allowed you to hotpot their Internet anywhere and make unlimited icelandic phone calls while you stayed with them. Breakfast was a mixture of hot and cold options pastries and cereals as well as the cooked options, everything was well stocked throughout breakfast and staff were regularly topping up food. All in all the hotel was amazing food good, room really nice and staff were exceptional. The hotel was on the main High Street and made it easily accessible for the whole of the city. would 100 percent return here if revisiting Iceland.

Amazing hotel! Came here with my partner for 4 nights and the hotel didn't disappoint. Location is good, so close to the sea, restaurants, shops and local bus stops . Only slight downfall is big coaches/transfers won't pick you up outside your hotel due to it being a pedestrian street so you have to walk to the end or the road to be picked up but its only a few minutes away. We had tea and coffee making facilities provide everyday. The breakfast was a good variety and was well stocked even towards the end of breakfast time they made sure there was still food out for those attending later on. They offered help to anyone and everyone and ordered us a taxi when we needed one. The hotel provided us with a Icelandic mobile phone so we could use their Internet,calls and texts saving using our own. They had some numbers already saved in for reception and taxi firms ect. The room sizes were great, we had two single beds pushed together however they didn't move at all and they were one of the comfiest beds iv ever slept In. Fantastic pillows and quilt. The room was never cold either! Would definitely return to this hotel if we come back

Absolutely perfect stay…. We were able to get an early check in at 9am, rested a couple hours and then headed out. The entire staff was great. Friendly, helpful, couldn’t do enough. Room was clean, modern, plenty of pillows and comfortable bed. Breakfast each day was awesome. Plenty of choices and lots of everything. Was a great way to start our long days. Location is great for walking to shops, bars, restaurants, water, etc. Thank you Alda for making our first trip to Iceland not our last. We will be staying with you again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Alda. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of restaurants, bars and attractions in Reykjavik. The rooms were perfect for what we required - very warm, comfy beds, and a great shower (perfect to warm up after a day of outdoor activities). There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room too. The hotel provides you with a smart phone (rather than having a landline in the bedroom). You are able to take this phone out with you to hotspot your own device and it has some useful apps downloaded which you can use to look at local restaurants/ attractions etc. There was a variety of food available at breakfast, ranging from continental to cooked items. We did not try any of the cooked breakfast items, but it seemed popular so can only imagine it was good! There was also a few dairy free milks available which I was very impressed with, and gluten free bread was also available on request - so no need to worry about not being able to eat if you have an intolerance/ allergy/ specific dietary requirements. The staff were very friendly and helpful - we could not fault their service! Would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a central place to stay in Reykjavik.

Stayed here for three nights in a nice simple room with windows that opened facing north in a courtyard. The room though not large was perfect for two of us and our two large suitcases. There was plenty of space to hang out clothing and our hats. The windowsills were deep enough to place our books and jewelry. The location can’t be beat. Plenty of street parking available and the Parka App is great if you have to pay for parking. We did not include breakfast with our room as I have a lot of favorite breakfast spots in the area (ie: Café Loki, Brauð & Co, Grái kötturinn). The hot tub outside the fitness center and the sauna inside are fantastic. You get a local smart phone to use while staying at the hotel, with unlimited local/Iceland calling, and it doubles as a hot spot for your foreign smart phone. There’s an original DFace painting on the side of the hotel too! Fantastic hotel. I’ve been to Reykjavik seven times and this is my first time at Alda and probably not my last!
