I'd definitely recommend the Lind hotel if you're planning a stay in Reykjavik.

First off the location is very good , located just minutes from the main shopping street :Laugavegur in Reykjavik. Close enough that when you get back tired and hungry from a days sightseeing or tour you are minutes away from great cafes , bars and restaurants. But far enough that you are not disturbed by noise at nighttime.

The rooms , although not large, are bright and have ajustable heating (from when you come back cold from a days walking!) .The beds are comfortable, extra pillows provided in a large wardrobe (with safe). The bathroom, although small is adequate and comes fitted with a hairdryer. Be warned, the shower water does have a sulphur-y smell, but aparently this is quite the norm for the area.

The hotel itself is clean and functional, and the reception staff are incredibly friendly and warm; Booking trips and giving advice where needed.

The breakfast is also good, a variety of items such as sauage , eggs and bacon or waffles for those who like a hot breakfast, or yogurt, cereals , pastries and fruit for those who prefer a lighter fare.

I would definitely stay at the Hotel Lind again.

Room Tip: If a room with a view is important to you , a room at the front of the hotel will only give you a vi...

It is in a great location. The staff are really helpful. I really liked the remodel in the lobby and the room where breakfast is served. It is a a major upgrade from before. The rooms are quite small, but clean

This is a fairly standard hotel that does the job. The staff on the front desk are friendly and quickly checked us through, the room is decent (as in lots of areas in ICeland the water will have a slightly sulphury smell).

It is only a short walk to the 'centre' of the city but the place is so small you are never far from anywhere.

Good option.
