My partner and I stayed at Hotel Thingholt for a week over the New Year holiday this year and thought the hotel was solid. The level and quality of decor was better than we expected for the price and the overall design was typical for a modern boutique style hotel...well designed and visually clean. Our deluxe room was large and the bathroom which was separated by a frosted glass wall was huge (even by American standards) with high grade fixtures. The reception, lobby, lounge, bar and breakfast room are below street level with cellar windows peeping out onto foot traffic. The lobby looks ready for a cocktail party that never seems to happen and has the energy of a museum. uhg.
The staff was mildly friendly when forced to be but personal phone calls and eyes glued to the monitor behind the desk when a guest walked by seemed the norm. We had a running joke about how many days we could go without a smile or eye contact...it was three.
Breakfast was ample. The first few days it seemed we were the only guests in the hotel and breakfast was simple starchy pastry and pretty thin. But, the following mornings as occupancy increased we had a nice selection of meats, breads, cheese, cereals, fruit and eggs. It was an above average spread.
We had a rental car for the week and there was plenty of parking either in free (or pay) lots down the street or on street parking in front of the hotel itself.
The bed was large, comfortable, the room was warm and decorated well, the flat screen tv got all the basics, the closets and shelving were ample for two guys for a week and the couch and lounge area gave us enough room to have cocktails in the room.
The best thing about Thingholt? The price. We are used to paying more for that grade of stay...wow...for once...something in Reykjavik that wasn't too expensive!
