“The spa makes it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Overall, the Natura is a very good hotel.

The good:
Very large rooms.
Spotless (like the whole country).
Great service.
Themed rooms. Ours was dedicated to the Guiness Book of Records tallest man record, a turk who visited the hotel. The room has an oversized chair, appropriate for him but good for a gag photo for anyone under 7 feet.
The restaurant. Good buffet breakfast, very good brunch buffet on weekends.

The not-so-good:
Airplanes taking off/landing after 7AM and before 11PM.
No AC. We were told that no hotel has it - just open a window (and turn off the heat. Icelanders like to use their plentiful geothermal energy).
Location. It's walkable to downtown, but it's a hike. On the other hand, organized tours always pick up at the hotel, and there's plenty of parking if you rent a car.
Odd room layout. In spite of the size, the layout was odd. Few surfaces, lots of open surfaces, a bench seat against the window the only place to sit (other than the gag chair).
The bath. This might be typical of Iceland, but the tub was very narrow by US standards, and was quite rounded on the bottom. When slippery, it felt quite treacherous.

The high review is really driven by the spa. Beautiful. A pool, hot bath, sauna, and steam bath. Spotless. Total indulgence.

The hotel is located right next to the airport and looks like something from 1960/1970's. Inside the rooms are nice although a little on the small side. Additionally, the elevators are very small.

We opted for a rental car so that we could travel downtown and around Reykjavik easily. However, if necessary, one could walk to a bus station (15-20 min away).

I stayed here for two nights, at the beginning and end of a tour. Rooms are clean and comfortable with the usual tv, tea and coffee making facilities and, in spite of an apparant pillow shortage in Iceland, this hotel provides two for each bed! On the first night I didn't appreciate what a luxury this was.

The reception is open 24 hours and the staff are helpful in pointing out things like the fact that only the computer on the left is connected to the printer! There are two computers provided for the free use of guests but do check about the printer if you want to print out boarding cards at the last minute.

I didn't eat in the restaurant but the menu looked interesting. Breakfast was good and varied with hot egg and sausage as well as the usual cold buffet.

The location might be a slight disadvantage for some as it's about 20 minutes walk into the centre of Reykjavik and close by the domestic airport, although there is not much noise from that in my experience. However it is within a very short stroll of the rather lovely Perlan with it's museum, restaurant, cafe, shops and amazing views over the whole of Reykjavik. The Perlan cafe does good salads and is the first place I tried Skyr, which I can recommend. There are also some very cute rabbits among the trees on the walk up to it.

Nice, clean, very good service. Pleasent spa/pool area with two pools. Sauna could have been hotter. 15 min walk to citycenter is no problem. Very helpful staff with good knowledge of sights, bus transportation and restaurants. We had a family room, plenty space for three.

The hotel itself was clean and the staff was fairly attentive. The location was only fair. It is a short drive to downtown, but you would only want to walk if the weather is nice. Close proximity to the city airport, which is not a great view and rooms on the airport side suffer from loud airplane noise (most planes flying to/from this airport are prop planes). The pools is great! ...for adults. It's part of the spa, so kids splashing and making noise of any kind is frowned upon. If you want to swim with kids, find someplace near the city pool, which is perfect for kids. We had lounge access on the 4th floor, but it was only accessible in the late afternoon and was not usually stocked. We had to call to have soft drinks put in the lounge refrigerator. We didn't partake in the buffet breakfast because it seemed much too expensive for what you get. They have an ala carte selection of breads, jams, and sandwiches that was more reasonable for breakfast. If you like to run, there are great trails nearby that are quiet. Overall, we had a nice visit, but it was only an average hotel.

A long way from the city centre and only liited shuttles but a great place to stay if using the city airport and very short walk to Perlan and thermal beach. The pool was great and this is the only hotel with its own pool.
The restaurant offers a buffet but it was pricy and a bit disappointing - otherwise mainly light meals so you may want to go out if you want something more. The Perlan has a sperb restaurant with a revolving floor to enjoy the views over Reykjavik and could be a good option.
I stayed one night before a flight from the City airport and it was ideal - with very frendly reception staff and computers with free internetaccess. I stayed in the centre of town on my return.
It is close to the airport but I didnt hear any noise - much noisier in town under the flight path.

We stayed at the Natura as part of a package with IcelandAir. We were very impressed with the efficiency of the check-in for a large group arriving at the same time. The service is extremely good, and the front desk can assist you with any question you have. At first we thought that the breakfast buffet seemed a little bit pricey but once we saw the wide variety and the quality of food we decided it was well worth it. It is great to go down to the Spa after a day of sightseeing and float in the pool or sit in the steam room or hot tub, although we did wish that it was open longer hours.

Make sure you take advantage of the StoryTime - we were treated to hot chocolate and desserts while we sat in the audience with blankets and pillows and listened to Icelandic folk tales!

The rooms are a decent size for European standards, the bathrooms are very large, and they use a wonderful soap line. Even though we were quite close to the municipal airport the rooms were quiet. The only drawback to the hotel is that it is a bit out of the center of town. We had rented a car so it didn't matter so much to us and I believe there is a shuttle from the hotel that runs a few times a day.

If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Reykjavik we would certainly stay there again.
