Location, location, location! This is a very nice hotel, very efficient, courteous staff. Within walking distance to harbor, the Luthern Church, shopping, flea market, restaurants. It was our second choice, but it turned out much better than our first would have. Highly recommend, and we would definitely stay there again. Breakfast included.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back - very quiet and private. Although in October, there was not a lot of no...

We stayed here recently as part of a Northern Lights trip. It was comfortable, right in the heart of town, convenient and good value. The food was OK, the heating was brilliant but, best of all, the service was top notch! Whatever we asked for, it happened: rearranging tours, hotel transfers, kettle for tea... We'd stay there again if the opportunity arose.

A friend and I stayed in Hotel Fron for 4 nights, and it was great. Friendly staff, quite & comfortable rooms, clean bathroom and easy breakfast. Walking distance to lots to eat, bars, shops and cafe's. All of the tour companies picked up from that location, making the entire trip easy.

The location of this hotel is the real winner here. Smack in the middle of Laugavegur, Reykjavik's high street, there are shops restaurants book store cafes and more within a two minute walk. We stayed one night on arrival in Iceland in a small but never the less comfy room at the back of the hotel and then a 2 night stay at the end of our 10 day driving holiday in a bigger room. Room 317 was bigger and had a huge window allowing some in room, comfy, warm people watching on the busy Laugavegur.The hotel lobby had a good amount of tourist brochures etc so you can hit the ground running without having to immediately look for the tourist info.
The hotel restaurant/bar "The Scandinavian" was great for breakfast or a quiet drink in the evening. The staff were efficient, check in/check out went smoothly each time. I would stay here again for location if nothing else.

Room Tip: Room 317 is bigger and has street views.

I really liked this location. I was in Reykjavik for Airwaves and Hotel Fron was a perfect spot. I felt comfortable and cozy in my single room. Spotless and always attended to, I was very happy with the service. I am planning on returning this summer and I am sure I will stay at Hotel Fron again.

good hotel, we stayed there on two separate ocassions. the first time, we had a room in the back building, which was quieter, but the bathroom was not as nice as the one in the front building. If younstay in the front though, it can get a bit loud, with noise from the street.
very central, ok breakfast.
i wish he receptionist had known that hertz offers free shuttle service when you've booked a car from them.... I asked about this specifically, and they made us take a cab instead...

A friend and I stayed here for five nights. As soon as we walked into the reception area we received a great service and despite arriving at 10.00 am and a few hours prior to the check in time were allocated a room straight away. We had a studio room on the 4th floor at the back of the hotel so were not facing onto the main street and therefore the room was very quiet. The self-catering facilities in the room were very good and the room was a good size. Continuous hot water is available with its own unqiue sulphur smell but we soon got used to that. As the hotel is on one of the main streets it is very central to everything. The breakfast was good though a few more tables might be needed in peak season. We could not fault this hotel and loved Iceland.

Room Tip: Pick a room to the back of the hotel
