This hotel was perfect for us on our first visit to Reykjavik. It is immaculately clean -you could eat your dinner off the floor!. We had a room overlooking the front view of mountains and sea which was wonderful -we were always watching an ever changing landscape so I recommend you ask for a room with the view. The room was more than adequate with a great hot shower and plenty of wardrobe space.Breakfast was good with a range of continental foods -cereals, yoghurts, ham , cheese, breads, toast, boiled eggs and fish.There was even a bottle of cod liver oil for you to have a shot of in the morning so you could get your omegas and vitamin D ! The staff were very friendly and helpful and helped us confirm and arrange a number of tours and our return to the airport.The hotel is 2 bus rides into the centre and costs 350 krona each way ( you have to have exact change). However if you are up for a good 45 min walk past the thermal pool ( only 5 mins walk) to the coast and walk to your left along the promenade and get spectacular views along the way into town.
There is a good selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk. The pizza restaurant at the bottom of the hotel is very good (approx 1700-2000 krona for a very decent pizza or 700 for an excellent Greek salad) and a Chinese towards the Hilton hotel which was also very tasty and a reasonable cost (3500 krona large meal for two).
We did some excursions which were worth the money. Horse riding on the lava fields was good fun . The highlight was the fantastic Golden circle tour ( including Fontana wellness spa) . Spectacular views, dramatic waterfalls, shooting hot geezers ,the meeting of the tectonic plate and even the rest stops were worth stopping for! We didn't get to see the elusive Northern lights but out tour with Superjeep was great fun shooting off-road up and down mountains and chasing the breaks in the clouds and being consoled with hot chocolate with vodka.All in all a great trip and would love to go again and would stay again at the Reykjavik Lights without hesitation.
