Review of Iceland Hotel Klopp
Holiday date 24 Nov-1 Dec 2013
Those who had read my other reviews over the years know that I am a “value for money man” rather than a big spender. I decided to take a trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights as a pre-Christmas present to myself. I stayed for a week at the Hotel Klopp in Reykjavik. The hotel Klopp is a very honest hotel in its appearance. It does not have a grand entrance, and you may be disappointed with the reception/breakfast area with its cafeteria type table and chairs. At this point some might think it looks more like a hostel than a hotel, but from here onwards thing get a lot better. You will find your room very clean and warm, the bathroom (shower only) will also be well up to standard for this class of hotel. There is a very useable fridge to store any stacks you buy, and an electric kettle for tea/coffee. The hotel only serves a typical continental type breakfast, so English guests may be disappointed not to have fried eggs/sausage/bacon on the menu. The good news is that if you like this kind of meal, you can have as much of anything you want. The hotel only serves breakfast, so if you need an afternoon or evening meal you will have to go out for it. Again the good news is that you will not have to walk far, the hotel is only 50 meters from the main street in old Reykjavik. I counted a dozen eating houses within a hundred yards of the hotel. They ranged from good quality restaurants to Burger bars, to most tastes and prices are covered. Another plus point is the hotel staff, I found all of them to be both friendly and efficient. On my first night there I found the bed in my room to be so soft it hurt my back. A quick word to the receptionist in the morning and without any drama I was installed in another room within fifteen minutes, I have been in many more expensive hotels that did not give this standard of service!
To sum up –would I go there again, yes, most definitely yes. This is my kind of hotel, clean and tidy, good staff, and prices that for such an expensive as Iceland can only be thought of as a bargain.
