Reviewed June 6, 2014

Recently stayed at this hotel with 3 friends in a fantastic room. Clean, warm and many amenities. A great, quiet location with shops within walking distance and not too far from the city centre. The hotel has lots of character and the staff were very friendly and helpful in telling us places to visit and the easiest way to get around. I would return and recommend this hotel to anyone, great value for money.

Went to stay here with 3 friends for a week. Got an awsome room with a beautiful view of the mountains. Cleaned everyday, free breakfast was lush and service in general very friendly. Location is brilliant, because its a bit out, but not too far (we didn't have a car so relied on the very efficient bus services). It was quiet but just perfect for a relaxing holiday and ensured you got a good night sleep. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Shaun, the receptionist was a lot of help when it came to getting around and general advice about iceland. Definately recomment this hotel and would go back if i get the chance !

Wonderful, quiet place. Only 15 minutes to the city of Reykjavik with a bus right outside of the hotel if you don't have a car. The hotel does have cars available to rent. NIce breakfast included with wonderful staff. If you are looking for a small hotel with wonderful helpful staff look no further, you have found it at Hotel Laxnes!

My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days their between the 15th and 19th May. This was our first visit to Iceland and being more outdoor type people, we did not want to be in the City centre of Reykjavik and chose this hotel due to its location. We had some great walks leaving straight from the hotel and also used the local buses to get around for places further away and can highly recommend them for ease and price and the bus stops right outside the hotel. Our stay was in studio 17 which had basic cooking facilities and a fridge which suited our needs perfectly. The room was very clean and pleasant with stunning views of the mountains from the window. The supplied breakfast buffet that was included had more than enough choice to suit both our tastes and was tasty and plentiful. The staff were all very helpful when we needed advice and ideas on places to go and for arranging our Classic Golden Circle tour with Grayline.
We plan on returning as soon as we can to Iceland and we definitely plan to stay at Hotel Laxnes again.
