If you admire 1950s/1960s Scandinavian design, then you will fell right at home by staying in Hotel Natura. The hotel is retro in a very positive. Timeless design is displayed though out the lobby and room. Splashes of pinewood floors and decor; splashes of lime green and orange; plus stone walls and fireplaces makes this hotel very inviting.
The breakfast buffet is an excellent value. The bread at the buffet is super.I especially liked the round pumpernickel-like bread with the hard outer crust and soft inside. Was this particular bread baked underground with steam the way the Vikings did it? The fresh soft inside of this particular bread made me wonder if this bread was cooked with steam.
The lengthy distance from downtown was not much of an issue for me. I like to do a lot of walking anyway. To compensate for the location, the hotel does offer a free shuttle to downtown. If the scheduling of the shuttle does not fit in with the guest's time schedule, the hotel does offer to give tickets to use the Reykjavik municipal bus. The city's bus stop is conveniently located in front of the hotel.
The spa in the basement is a gem. It is a very peaceful place to relax in the pool down there after a long active day. I wish the spa stay open a little bit later and open a little bit earlier on the weekend.
Looking forward to another getaway to Iceland.
