the location is fantastic-right across the street from the coastal walk, and two blocks from the main gallery, shopping, and food district. The desk staff was helpful and nice, but apparently there is an issue with management. Not that I watch a lot of tv, but after a long day of enjoying everything Iceland has to offer, I like to watch a little news before bed. There was one English channel, from UK, which was fine. I am from the US but they covered all the major world news so it was good enough. The sound kept cutting in and out. I asked about that at the front desk and they said people had been complaining for weeks but the manager was ignoring the complaints. The rooms weren't very nice. The bathrooms really needed a good scrub down, and the carpets were disgusting. There was also peeling paint. The curtains could have been heavier given the summer midnight sun. The restaurant offers a buffet breakfast but it's pretty gross and you are told to bus your own table. I feel the rooms are overpriced too. So, I wouldn't stay there again. There were nicer places in the same location that were less expensive.

Good value for Iceland. A comfortable, if not very big room. A wardrobe with 8 hangers and no drawers, so we had to live out of our suitcase. Television had very few channels, and the quality of the sound made it very difficult to make out. Bathroom small but adequate, although the shower curtain did smell of damp. If staying here you should ask for a room high up, facing the front, for the view across the water.
Excellent breakfast buffet, Scandinavian style, with a waffle maker.
There is soup available to buy whenever you come in. There is a happy hour in the bar from 5 to 7.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Good location near the main street and with free parking.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Baron. The front desk staff were all very helpful. The hotel location was great, near enough to the old city to make it convenient, but not noisy. We'd highly recommend a stay.

My then fiancé and I stayed here for a 3 night trip to Iceland. Reykjavik is not a cheap place to visit, so we arranged to stay here, a mid-range hotel, to save some cash in order to splash out on some serious dinners and excursions instead.

We had a thoroughly pleasant stay here. The hotel met our expectations without exceeding them, was very reasonably priced compared to other hotels and was very conveniently located in central Reykjavik.

The, generally fairly young, staff were fabulous - helpful, friendly and a lot of fun.

In summary: a very honest mid-range hotel that does what it says on the tin. We would happily return.

I was here last week from DC meeting friends from UK; Reykjavik is an oft-overseen pearl of nordic culture and nature (not to mention totally wild but safe Friday and Saturday night partying); my Hotel comments -

> Great location - smack downtown but off the main strip and close to the Ocean-front
> Friendly and helpful Staff
> Sumptuous Breakfast buffet
> Late check-in (4pm) but rooms seem to be generally ready by noon
> WiFi availability only in lobby
> Fair Rates - clean and comfortable rooms with basic amenities
> Will return

Room Tip: Definitely go with the "Ocean view" rooms; the higher the floor the better; Cheers!
