“Good Standard Tourist Hotel”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just back from an Icelandair package to this hotel. We had booked the 3 night with Golden Circle tour. As expected we got the basic room without the kettle, balcony or view but it did not detract at all from our stay. The hotel is very clean everywhere. Our room had twin beds, TV with BBC etc and a fridge. The shower room was big enough but not large. There was a hairdryer supplied which saves the need to bring one with you. Breakfast was juice, coffee, cold meat, boiled eggs, cheese and salad. Plus museli, flakes, bread, jam, fish and danish pastries.
The hotel is geared up for these packages and everything goes very smoothly. Bus for tour turned up when it was expected, also the flybus for the return trip to the airport. Cannot fault anything.
The hotel is a stones throw from the harbour walk, which is very nice to do (if it's not really bad weather) could be a bit wet and windy!! The main shops etc are only a block away from the hotel. I would not call it central, but certainly not on a limb. I would go back again to this hotel if I ever go back to Reykjavik.

We stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights on an Icelandair package (very good value).The Hotel is situated at the far end of town from the more picturesque harbour area but, given the size of Reykjavik, everything is in walking distance. The building itself has been spruced up externally and internally. Rooms are all of a good size, clean and, on the sea side, have a good view across the bay. They are warm - very welcoming if you've come in from being outside in sub zero windy Iceland. As others have noted, the showers are particularly good.
Breakfasts are continental style, the only minor niggle being the availability of small cups resulting in lots of visits to top up. Good, helpful staff as others have commented and no problem giving us a very early breakfast at 4h10 to catch a plane back.
We had room 401, next to a lift on the sea side and were never disturbed either by noise from outside or in the corridor. There is a building site next door but it never caused any problems of noise or smell.
We'd have no hesitation staying here again. We'd strongly recommend the Golden Circle Tour too as well as using the Laugervagur pool complex at 550 IKR.

We stayed here for 3 nights the week of April 2nd, 2013. It was part of a package we had with Iceland Tours. I agree with all of the previous reviews... clean rooms with fridge, safe and hairdryer. Friendly, helpful staff, close to shopping and fine restaurants, fair buffet that won't leave you hungry. Weirdly, there is only WIFI in the small lobby or in the bar. I find this particularly strange since the hotel is in the capital city where over 70% of the country's population live.
I do have an additional comment. Missing from the room were facecloths and clocks. Now, I know these days everyone uses their phone for time and alarms but mine doesn't function out of the US so I didn't bother bringing it. Being disoriented from travel and waking up on my bodyclock it would have been very nice to just glance at a nightstand clock.
It was my first time in Iceland and I only stayed in one other hotel which also had neither a clock or a facecloth so maybe it's a Scandinavian thing??
I took off a star because of the WIFI. Really, all the little cafes in town had it. There's no good reason Hotel Klettur shouldn't.

Stayed here a week, the hotel was fantastic, we had one of the bigger rooms that they have which was a really nice surprise as I always get small and dark rooms when I go away so a pleasent surprise on arrival. Very modern and clean rooms with all mod cons. Wifi only available in the bar and reception and not the rooms. Location is around a 10 minute walk to the main shops, bars and restaurants. Happy hour is 6 till 8 two beers for 1000kr. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice however your not in england so dont expect a full on fry up as its cheese, ham, fruit, tomatoes, pepper... good choice of bread and cereals etc.Would stay at this hotel again if I went back.

We stayed at this hotel to celebrate my 30th birthday - it was all a big suprise from my fiance and I must say that it has been the most wonderful weeks holiday in Iceland and the hotel has played a big part in that. The staff are so friendly and accomodating. We went on a few excursions and it was no trouble at all for the staff to advise and book them for us. The room was clean and tidy and the area is quiet but still close enough to the town. The feel of the hotel is very relaxed yet precise where it matters. The 4am wake up call and the 4:45am call to make sure we were still awake was very well apprechiated as we have a little bit of a track record of overslepping and missing flights and so the staff were very obliging when we asked for a wake up call so we caught our flight home - they even served a lovely breakfast at that time in the morning if required!
