We recently stayed at Thingholt for four nights. In advance I read many reviews on trip advisor advising that people should try to stay in a high floor room at the back of the hotel because of the noise. As such I emailed the hotel before travelling to request this. When arriving at the hotel we were unable to check in until 2pm so they stored our luggage and we went out for some lunch and to explore the city centre. When we finally checked in they had granted my request and put us on the 4th floor right at the back of the hotel. Throughout our stay, it was very quiet and we heard no noise at all. The only issue with staying on the top floor was that we were in a loft space so the rooms did not have high ceilings. We felt that we spent the whole time crouching so that we didn't bang our heads on the low ceilings. Also in hindsight as were were staying Sunday - Thursday, I'm not sure that we needed to stay at the back of the hotel because throughout the week, the bars in Reykjavik are fairly quiet... it seems that they only come alive on a Friday and Saturday evening so if you are staying at the front of the hotel I doubt that you would have any issues. The hotel is in a perfect location, on a side street right off the main street in Reykjavik. Everything that you need is around you. The rooms are contemporary however if you are a new couple staying in the Thingholt, be aware that the bathroom walls are made of frosted glass and you can pretty much see your other half doing their business on the toilet... It definately takes you to a new point in your relationship!!! :-) The only critisicm I would have is that when the rooms were made up they kept leaving the window open and the room ended up freezing cold, which is not what you want after a full day out on the Ice. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the reception could not do enough for you. Breakfast was buffet service. The english breakfast was average but I was very impressed with the continental breakfast. The homemade flapjacks were to die for!!! All of the tour operators collect from Thingholt so when booking your trips you can wait in reception for collection and they will come directly to the hotel to colect you. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The hotel was well worth the money and was everything we expected it to be.
