This review is very overdue, but we really wanted to leave a review as this was our second time to the Hotel Laxnes and they really went out of there way to do everything they could for us. We were in a suite, which had loads of space and a lovely big balcony. The breakfast is similar to what you get in a lot of places in Iceland- cold meats, cheese, tomato, cucumber, bread. They were the only place we stayed to also have porridge. They also gave us lots of advice about our trip around Iceland and Northern light hunting etc. We rented a car from the hotel as well and we got a sat nav included in the price, which was a comfort to have as a back up on our journey. The hotel is an easy bus ride if about half an hour into the centre of Reykjavik (they only take exact money on the bus) and there are a couple of restaurants, takeaway pizza places, a KFC and a supermarket and bakery right there. We would definitely go back to this hotel again when we return to Iceland, which we hope to do soon. Many thanks to the staff at Laxnes, especially Shaun, for making us feel so welcome. Iceland is an absolutely amazing country- incredibly beautiful, clean, wild, remote and a country of true extremes. Everyone should go!
