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.

Great hotel, right in the heart of the predominantly pedestrian district of the Laugavergur. Pretty much all the neat stuff in the city is in walking distance. The cathedral, the penis museum, great restaurants, clubs, and especially the Sandholt bakery and cafe. Rooms are small if you’re in a single, which is typical for European hotels. But you’re not in town for the hotel bedroom. The breakfast buffet is good, covering both European and North American breakfast styles. Restaurant, which also caters to walk up clients in addition to hotel guests, is also quite good. Staff is great and also multinational. If I go back to Iceland, I would stay there in a heartbeat.

Had a really enjoyable stay at the Alda Hotel back in March. This was just a few weeks before the world came to a halt with the COVID-19 Pandemic. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location, in the heart of Reykjavík. The city centre is compact, but the location of the hotel makes it so easy to walk everywhere (including in very cold temperatures). You have a number of restaurants very close to the hotel, the Hallgrimskirkja church is 5 mins walk away. You were moments away from a number of the bus stops for excursions - 10 and 13, I believe. This is handy for Northern Lights Tour, Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon etc. I had a single room as travelling solo. It had a distinctly modern, Nordic feel to it - which was very nice. It was compact and had a small balcony area. It was nice and cosy - which was needed for the cold March weather! Iceland has been one step ahead of the world in its handling of COVID and the hotel had a contactless hand sanitiser station at reception. This was well before many other countries adopted such measures, which is now commonplace in July as I type this review. The hotel was exceptionally good value for money. I would definitely recommend staying here for a stay in Reykjavik.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. The hotel was much better than I thought it would be. Nice location within walking distance of many shops bars and restaurants. The check in and check out was nice. Great bathroom and nice shower. Good selection of tv channels. The gym and outdoor hot tub was a very pleasant surprise.

We stayed at the Alda Hotel for the first night of our travels around Iceland and we would highly recommend. We stayed in a sea view room with a balcony so had a lovely view across the centre of Reykjavik and to the mountains across the water. There had been heavy snowfall before we arrived so the balcony served as an excellent 'cool box' for the beers my husband purchased in the airport! The room was lovely - plenty of space and well appointed. We made use of the hot tub in the evening, which was lovely after exploring in the cold for most of the afternoon. The breakfast buffet was fantastic with plenty of options (including MYO waffles!) Although we didn't need it, the hotel also very helpfully provided a mobile phone to use during our stay so that we didn't incur charges on our own. Highly recommended and we wouldn't hesitate in booking the Alda Hotel again.
