We stayed one night at Hotel Alda on our recent trip around the Iceland Ring Road. We arrived early in the morning, and although our room wasn't ready yet, the hotel staff made every effort to take care of us by storing all of our luggage and making sure the room would be ready earlier than it normally would have, which was much appreciated.

The hotel is toward the end of a great shopping district street and is easy to walk to from most of the Reykjavik town center sites. It has a welcoming, contemporary lobby and is updated throughout. Our room had a walk-out door to a large open shared patio area, which I would've loved to use, but it was raining.

The room was smallish (as are most rooms in Iceland) but it was quiet, well-equipped, and very comfortable. We slept very well, and had a delicious included breakfast in the morning.

The Alda was a perfect welcome to Iceland and I would highly recommend it.

The Alda was a lovely, quaint and clean hotel located in the heart of Reykjavik. Just a short walk to most attractions and with a love breakfast, It was a pleasure to stay here. If I return I would definitely consider staying at the Alda again.

We stayed at the Alda for 3 nights as a base for exploring Southern Iceland. It's on the main Street in Reykjavik and is walking distance to all the sights in Reykjavik and restaurants. It's very new and stylish. Yes they give you a cell phone to use while you're there but that means there are no phones in the room and the safe in the room was located on the floor so yes you had to lie on the floor to use it! Rome was a little dark. Other than that it was really terrific and had a good buffet breakfast.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Alda for one night. It was in a very central location on the main street (Laugavegi) in Reykjavik. Rooms were modern and clean. The room was a little bit on the dark side even with all the lights turned on but that seemed to be the theme of the hotel. The bathroom was equipped with a better shower than most European showers (I don't get Euro showers...we always cause a mess when taking a shower....i prefer shower curtains). Instead of a phone in the room, Hotel Alda provided us with a cell phone which we could use during our stay. It's such a great idea for international visitors who did not get an international data plan as they said all local phone calls and web searches were included. We didn't eat the breakfast so not sure if good or not. Parking is not available but we found a parking lot a couple of blocks down. The lot says open from like 7am to 12am but reception told us we could leave our car over night. It was 500kr (50cents)/hour which seemed really cheap compared to everything else in Iceland. Please note, we had a hard time using our cc to pay when exiting so we would recommend having cash on hand. Overall, I would def stay here again.

Room Tip: Modern clean rooms
