“Nice hotel in a cool city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

My wife and i spent our first trip to Iceland at the 1919 in Reykjavik. Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Our room was a tad small, but we didn't spend too much time in the room itself. Nice bed, decent bath and very clean. Free WiFi too! Hotel is not far from the Harpa concert hall and only a few minutes away from Hallgrimskirkja cathedral. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around the area as well. The tour bus companies are within a few blocks so hotel is in a great location for tourists. Highly recommended. Dress warm. The city can be chilly and windy.

We stayed at the 1919 for 2 nights. The location was ideal for seeing the sights and hitting the main drag of shopping and bars. Also right next to the famous hot dog stand that Bill Clinton stopped at years ago (not sure what all the fuss is over the hot dogs, but there was a constant line all day and night). The staff was very accomodating and friendly, and the rooms were more than adequate. A great place to spend a few days in town. Note: there is construction going on right outside the hotel with a large open hole in the ground--there was no noise/activity when we were there, but it was a weekend so not sure about weekdays.

Dear Guest.

Thank you for writing your great review about your stay with us.

It is great to see that you had such a wonderful experience with us and enjoyed the hotel.

Regarding the construction front of the hotel; the city is making our street´s and our surroundings in the city more attractive and this is part of that process. This will be a great change when you walk the streets and enjoy the city in summer.

All the best,
Soffia S. Pálsdóttir and the 1919 team.

Location, location, location! Just by the waterfront, opposite Harpa. Walking distance to all main atractions of the city. Clean, pleasant deco, wooden floors in functional rooms, nice and frindly staff. Beautiful dark green marble on the floors of the corridors and stairs.

Lovely hotel good friendly front office staff. Clean nice modern rooms, but best of all, location could not be better. They also claim that if you need late check out they try to accommodate you. I arrived very early and was able to check in and go to my room. A real plus

Great breakfast, comoftable bed, room a bit small, very helpful staff and great location. The WIFI worked intermittently. We were in the new part ofthe hotel - the rooms might be bigger and better in the old part.

Stayed here for my partners 40th birthday, and to go to the Harpa for a music festival. Room was a little smaller than we expected, howevrr it was very clean, nicely decorated and the beds were very very comfy!
Great location and good view over the harbour. Staff were very helpful and booked trips for us, and gave great advice.
