“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

On our first trip to Iceland, we had the Ultimate Iceland Holiday booked through Icelandair themselves, and this was one of the options for the hotels. Do not regret the decision at all. We had a beautiful room on the top floor with a spacious balcony that looked out over the city centre. From the room windows we had great views of the harbour and mountains which on a clear morning looked amazing. I don't know why the hotel felt the need to leave a sign in the bathroom commenting on how small it was, because the shower was lovely and big!!! Breakfast had a great selection and had enough choice to fill yourself up to set you up for most of the day. The bar at the hotel had very helpful staff and on our first night Bill Oddie was sat on a table behind us enjoying a drink, so it is obviously a well known place! If you are planning a trip to Reykjavik I would highly recommend the Marina for its value, hospitality and great location (about 10 minutes from the city centre).

Room Tip: If you can request a balcony/top floor room - its beneficial for the views and sea air.

My wife bought me a weekend away for my birthday knowing Iceland was somewhere I always wanted to go. The hotel is so convenient for the centre of town and all the bars and restaurants. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and the room was very contemporary and comfortable. The view over the marina and dry docks was pretty unique, maybe not to everyone's taste but we liked it.
The hotel bar was fantastic, no wonder lots of local people go there.
Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice and we were able to sit in the bar area looking out over the marina.
I cannot think of anything to criticise and would recommend the place to anyone visiting for the first time.

Loved the hotel. Very quirky reception area and great bar (busy in the evenings). Room was lovely and, despite being on the street side, we didn't have a problem with noise. Not sure about the glass sliding door on bathroom. I got sent out every morning so my hubby could use the loo. Only down side to hotel for me was having to pay for wifi! Great location and only 5 mins from restaurants. Particularly enjoyed Geysir Bistro, but also had lovely meals at Tabaso's and Uno. A trip to the church and up the tower is definitely worthwhile to see the views of Reykjavic. Harpa's is amazing and a must to visit. Enjoyed the Blue Lagoon tour, Golden Circle tour and particularly the Glacier Walk tour, despite the lousy weather! Fantastic holiday altogether!

We booked this hotel through a northern lights package with Icelandair - it was very good value. The hotel was newly refurbished and had a funky 'urban' feel - lots of off the wall comments to its guests, a good bar and restaurant and some quirky sculptures in a few places. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room was amply big enough (some reviews I read said the rooms were small). The only slight critisism was the glass door to the bathroom had a large gap round and was quite see through - fine for a couple but for twin rooms may be a bit awkward?? Lovely shower though and all in all very very comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and gave us lots of help with sight seeing routes, maps etc. The hotel is very busy in the evening with the locals so whilst its a really good atmosphere if you fancy a quiet evening drink you'll need to either go to your room or find anothe bar. All in all I would definitely return to the Marina, thank you to all the staff for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the marina are probably quieter, but there is good double glazing.

Hotel was perfect - no issues. Stayed in a downstairs bunk room which was super fun as well as a normal room. Restaurant and bar scene were great. Breakfast was delicious. Ate at the tappas restaurant across the way as well and that was above expectations. Location is easy enough to walk around to the main downtown area. Staff was very helpful offering input on adventures around the island. No complaints.

Excellent position, short walking distance to town centre; clean, contempary hotel, staff very polite and helpful (impeccable English). Rooms good sizes, very clean , comfortable - beware that there is only clouded glass between the room/bathroom (which is ok for your nearest and dearest - but no-one else). If you like a good night sleep ask for a harbour view as the rear of the hotel is ON a main road (which is busy throughout the night)! After 3 nights of minimal sleep I asked to be moved - although the hotel has double glazed glass, there are wooden frames which does not stop traffic noise. Thurs/Fri nights were so busy with the locals that you can't get a seat downstairs. Breakfast in the hotel was superb - like everything else in Iceland (very expensive) but lots of choice, gluten free options too £12.50 pp

Room Tip: choose harbour side to reduce traffic noise (although boatyard does start work early too!)

Stayed here for four nights in an attic room with a dry dock view and balcony. It was nice to be able to take a moment on the balcony, with the view of the harbor and a ship right there in the dry dock. I can see how two people who are not a couple might not be so comfortable in this room, but my partner and i had no problems with it's bathroom setup (as is mentioned in previous reviews, the bathroom door is a sliding frosted-glass door).

We arrived around 8a and grabbed some breakfast while waiting for our room to be ready. They were able to get us into our room early, shortly after we ate, which was awesome. The guys at the front desk were super nice and helpful our whole stay, and the place is overall clean, comfy and fun. The location is perfect too.
We had the breakfast included in our rate and ate there almost every morning. They have a humble buffet with vegetarian options - all delicious and filling.

The only reason I rated it a 4 instead of a 5 is that there's no free wifi. I didn't expect it in the room, but would've been nice in the lobby at least. The do have a computer for guests to use in the lobby's "library" area...but it's not the same.

I'd definitely stay there again, though.
