Great location to walk to shops, restaurants and harbour. Hotel staff very helpful. You do have to walk a couple blocks to bus stop 10 to pick up for tours and transfers. Not a problem just be aware of if you have lots of luggage or if raining. There is a grocery store Bonus right by hotel to get snacks good for day tours.
Alda is a nice modern and comfortable boutique hotel on the eastern part of the downtown area. It’s on the main shopping street. Walkable to anywhere you’d want to go. We had a balcony room, which was nice on the first day of arrival to have access to fresh air and an outdoor space since we didn’t know how long we needed to quarantine for while waiting for the arrival COVID test result. Room is comfortable and warm and had amenities such as water kettle and mini fridge. The bathroom, while spacious, was poorly designed for this type of hotel at this price range. It would be less of a big deal at more budget or homey places but rather annoying for Alda. The sink was tiny but there was plenty space for a larger sink. And the sink counter boxes the toilet in the corner. If you weren’t careful you could hurt yourself on the sharp corner of the sink counter because there is little space to move around. And I am a US size zero (I’m not a big person). In our room we did hear noise from the hall, whether it’s other guests and their room doors or housekeeping . Breakfast was a nice array for hot and cold choices served buffet style, but it costs almost $25 USD per person per day. We had early arrival check-in for a fee of only $16 USD and the front desk was nice to ask if we would want breakfast sent to the room. However she neglected to mention that it would also cost $50 USD for 2 people, despite us not having access to the buffet. So at check out I was sprung with over $100 USD in “incidentals.” Although it was a nice stay, there are rooms for improvement at that price point. I wish I didn’t overpay $100 for breakfast.…
I give this hotel 4.5 stars. The good: 1) great location in the heart of the shopping district; 2) wonderful black out blinds for those bright nights; 3) great staff: arrived early after an overnight flight and the staff (Marta I believe) was very helpful in getting me into my room early. The female staff members were polite and helpful in assisting with restaurant ideas, directions and even arranged for a taxi service to the airport when the car service I had booked cancelled last minute (the one male staff I interacted with was rather terse; 4) The restaurant serves breakfast daily from 7:30 AM to 10:30 and there was hot and cold food including juices, teas, coffee, bread, croissants, smoked salmon, fruit, eggs, sausage, and salad items. As a bonus they had almond and soy milk. They arrange "to go" bags for people who are departing earlier. They also have a basic dinner menu and the service was good as well; 5) they will hold your luggage for you before/after check out; 6) the beds are very comfortable; 7) the rooms were very clean and 9) deluxe rooms have a mini fridge and a little sitting area. The not so good: 1) many tours start picking passengers up at 8 at local bus stops so breakfast beginning earlier at 7 would be ideal; 2) the water in my shower was tepid at best and never got hot. When you are out all day in the wind and rain, a hot shower is a must 3) the sinks are crazy low (and I am short) and the faucets so low that you can't refill a water bottle or wash your face comfortably; 4) the walls/ceilings are thin so you will hear your neighbors' heels clomping and the doors are super heavy so you hear them being slammed at all hours. Items in my room actually rattled it was so loud/strong (maybe put a sign asking people to close them gently behind them?). The only thing that might prevent me from returning was the shower water temperature but, all in all, a really good experience.…
Staff friendly and helpful, rooms were very big, clean and tidy and breakfasts were fantastic - we didn't see the northern lights this time so hopefully be back again when we've saved up as Iceland is more expensive than anywhere I've ever known. Would have no hesitation is staying at the Alda again.
This hotel is very well located on the Main Street heading into Reykjavik centre. Rooms were well laid out and really warm and cosy. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom smart and classy with a lovely power shower. Breakfast was lovely. Fruit, yogurts, toast, pancakes, hams, cheese, breads and a hot section also. My favourite was the potatoes and bacon, it was lovely. Outdoor hot tub was extremely hot but when it’s minus 10 outside, a pleasant way to warm up! It was centrally located and had nice eateries and pubs very close. Reykjavik is small enough to explore on foot and very safe all around. Tap water is amongst the cleanest in the world so can save money as it’s an expensive city. If you want alcohol, make sure you use the happy hour in all pubs and bars. They run at different times so some planning needed. Rough prices are £10 a pint but this reduces to around £5.50 in happy hour. Hotel staff were very informative and helpful. One of the best holidays We’ve ever had in an incredible country. …
