Hilton Reykjavik Nordica
Ranked #17 of 54 Hotels in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2014

I stayed at the Hilton Nordica for a night on the tail end of a ten day visit to Iceland. While the hotel was modern, clean and offered all of the amenities of a nice hotel, it was definitely my least favorite hotel of my journey. Iceland offers so much charm and warmth in the bed & breakfasts I stayed at throughout the country (even in Reykjavik), that my stay here was much more reminiscent of any above-average hotel in the States. Of course, this shouldn't be taken as a knock on this Hilton property. You generally know what you're getting from Hilton, and that's why many people will love it.

I am taking off 1 star for two reasons: paid Wi-Fi and an average location. I don't care what other hotels are doing, but it is inconceivable that Wi-Fi is not an included amenity in this day and age. Every small B&B I stayed at (for much less) included Wi-Fi in the room rate (as well as a warm meal, friendly conversation and a smile -- I can't mention enough how friendly Icelanders are). Also, this hotel is not within convenient walking distance of the main strip of the city. I would consider closer hotel options that you can walk to, rather than needing a cab or rental car at this rate.

I spent 5 days i Reykjavik for a conferece and choose to stay at the Hilton and had a wonderful stay. Loved the room,wonderful hardwood floors, comfortable bed, huge windows with wonderful view. Great breakfast (included in the price) extremely helpful staff. When I return to Reykjavik I will definitly stay at the Hilton Nordica.

We chose to stay in Hilton Reykjavik simply because we didn't want to take a chance in such a far out place . And we are so glad for the decision . We had 4 rooms for our family . Each of them had a fabulous view of the town, ocean and mountains . The room itself was large and had huge windows which gave a very cheerful and warm ambience .
All the amenities were provided for in the hotel except that they kept paper cups for coffee instead of glass mugs .
Location was great . 5 minutes by taxi from downtown and they had shuttle buses to take you there . Concierge service was very useful and we booked all our tours there .
Breakfast in the restaurant was good but as vegetarians we didn't get any choice for lunch or dinner . No pasta or pizza options . We ate at a nearby Mexican place and at an excellent Indian restaurant downtown called Gandhi .
We took taxis to and from the airport . Costed us about 13500 to 17500 Isk for a small and large taxi respectively .
The good thing about reykjavik is that taxis are very convenient albeit a little expensive .
We loved reykjavik and hilton . Would definitely like to go back someday to catch the Northern lights

We visited Reykjavik on a 5 day excursion package. The hotel was booked solid and we were upgraded to an Executive Suite at no additional charge although we were not priviledge to any of the Executive Suite ammenities other than the room upgrade.

The hotel bar is quite nice and very reasonable if you take advantage of the half price Happy Hour drinks.

The Hilton Reykjavik Nordica is great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I didn't give it 5 stars, because the hotel didn't have a lot of ammenities that I would expect at a Hilton. They didn't have a proper concierge (that would have been helpful since we were in a foreign country trying to navigate excursions and domestic flights). It is also a bit far from downtown. If you stay here you might want to consider a rental car.

Stayed here on a business trip. Nice rooms, clean and good service. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Distance to downtown is a little far to walk especially late at night going back in cold temperatures

Stayed here 2 nights in May. Very friendly and helpful staff - restaurant superb. The reception area is very welcoming, Happy Hour is lively and bar staff do fantastic cocktails and are eager to show off their skills. Everyone made us feel very welcome, took the time to explain things such as the bus timetables and they went out of their way to make sure you made the most of the trip. Rooms were extremely clean and bathrooms were immaculate -showers lovely and hot no matter what time of day. Would recommend the Hilton without hesitation.

Room Tip: Hotels at the front and high up have the best views!
