Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Reykjavik
Ranked #29 of 54 Hotels in Reykjavik
Reviewed December 11, 2013

A three night trip to Reykjavik and the Radisson Blu 1919 was more than we needed. The location of the hotel could not have been better for us as it was central to the city centre with plenty of restaurants and bars in close proximity. It was also a street away from the main shopping area and an easy walk to all the main attractions in the city.
All the staff were polite and very helpful giving advice and suggestions of where to go and what to see. The wifi was strong and stable and the breakfasts had an impressive range of foods and all of a good quality.
Only downside if I had to choose one was that the room felt a little small, but we spent barely any time in there as we were out and about seeing what Iceland had to offer.

This hotel is in a central place but the room we had was in I think a modern extension was small and the view was of another building. Adequate for one night but no longer. breakfast was included and good. The staff were lovely especially Snoerdis(?) who was really helpful in finding us a good Northern lights tour.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the older building perhaps

Hello, I stayed here for 4 nights and I LOVE IT, our weekend in family was great, the rooms were really nice and clean, the house keeping did a great job during our stay. I wanna also to say thank you to the front desk booking restaurants and some tours for us they were really nice :).
Other good thing about the hotel is the Breakfast, they call it "SuperBreakfast" and they are right, a lot of choices for everyone and we can make our waffles like if we were at home. The waiters working on the weekend were great always smiling and very cheerful in the morning, and always interested how was our day if we were having fun. We felt like they really care, special Paulo with that great smile in the morning, if I'm not mistake the others were Igor, ferndo and Barbara.
This was during the weekend. But on Monday and Tuesday the working team change and also the welcoming feeling, that disappeared. It was another waiter a big black guy, I don't remember his name, we just know that he was not welcoming and a little rude in the way of talking like with some attitude,like if he was not enjoying his work...but that is not our problem.
It's a shame that a great hotel like this have such different teams working. In the night the bar was great some classics cocktails and very good atmosphere, Eric and Barbara were our bartenders and they were great.
But beside that we love our weekend here and we are thinking coming back for summer in Iceland like some waiters suggested and offcourse we will stay here again.
Our best regards to all the team from Radissonblu 1919

Room Tip: The weekends can be a little noise but just ask for ear plugs and you will be fine....we did...

I spent a couple of nights here on business and it was recommended to me by the local people we were meeting with.

Everything you would expect and want from a good city hotel.

The location is close to some good restaurants and there is a famous hot dog stand across the way.

It is hard to recommend for more than for the business traveller who likes a nice breakfast!

I was traveling with my mother (who is currently disabled) and my sister. We arrived early in the morning from a flight coming from Los Angeles and was told that our room will be ready in about an hour which was expected and greatly appreciated. We went to the breakfast buffet which had plenty of choices and even have shots of cod liver oil. The location of the hotel was perfect for walking around the center of Reykjavik with nearby shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and the hotel has a spacious lobby. The room size was good and I like that you can open a part of the window to let some air in and prevent the room from being stuffy. The bed and pillows were comfortable.

I would have rated this hotel better but I was disappointed that there is no bell service at all which is very challenging during winter when it's slippery outside and dragging the luggage from snow is not easy especially with our disabled mother. The towels also need replacing as it looks old and some have stains or tattered edges. Also, we did not get a refill of the coffee, cream, sugar that they provide complimentary for the room on our second night.

This was a perfectly well run, efficient hotel with pleasant staff, good quality breakfasts & a well stocked bar. It was not remarkably good or bad just what you'd expect from a decent international hotel. Tour buses picked up from reception & there were a number of good restaurants within walking distance.
