We had a car - What a difference for the convenience of staying at Hotel Laxnes and its close proximity to the Golden Circle and the many other natural wonders of Iceland. The hotel is located in a small town (Mosfellsbaer) outside Reykjavik allowing the beauty of the country to be outside your windows (in our case) and yet close...

This was my first time in Iceland and I took a trip with my sister on our way to Scotland. Hotel Laxnes was a very quant/quiet hotel. Don't expect anything fancy, though. I think most of the hotels in Iceland are simple and had an almost 70's vibe. The continental breakfast was great and my sister really enjoyed it. My...

This was our first time in Iceland and hotel and flights were booked as a package. The hotel is around 50 mins from Keflavik and around 20 minutes from the centre of Reykjavik on the bus- the bus stop is right next to the hotel. The hotel also arranged all of our tours at no extra charge for booking, which...

Right outside of the city with lots of things to do around it. Room was cozy and the staff was very hospitable. They made us feel welcomed. Very nice running trail next to the hotel as well. A good start to our Iceland trip.

Just what you expect from a hotel: nice and cosy rooms, friendly and helpful staff and a tasty breakfast. Could not ask for more! I also liked the quiet location, it is out of the city but not too far away from the centre. Best of both worlds!

Again in Iceland but for a longer visit this time. First stopp Hotel Laxnes where I have stayed many times before. Why ? Well because of the value of the stay. I always get a "welcome back home" feeling when I enter the door of the reception, not only getting a good service from a staff that obviosly enjoy what...

This hotel was located in a small town, quieter than Reykjavik but an easy bus ride in and out of the city. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and the staff was very helpful in giving directions for places to see in the town as well as with planning excursions. We stayed 1 week here, taking day excursions around Iceland. A...

Hotel Laxnes was a nice property about 10-15 minutes north of Reykjavik. Room was good sized though bath was tight. Breakfast was included and was typical of the European fashion. Staff was friendly and things were clean. It lacked a little in character (seemed like an American motel from the 60s) but a decent place though not much cheaper than...

Pros: Nice size rooms with good water pressure. Located close enough to get to various areas when needed. Cons: Not as shown. Rooms dated and not cleaned very well. Pictures also made area look more remote and not behind a KFC. I should have done a little research first. Overall not great compared to some wonderful places I stayed in...

Sorry to hear that you were not impressed by our Hotel and our location.We are not in the countryside and do not hide that we are in a suburb although our Hotel is facing Esja mountain and lots of hiking trails within walking distance.Not sure why the cleaning was not up to standard and all rooms have recently been painted...

A quaint hotel in a great location - about 15 min to downtown Reykjavik with inexpensive restaurants, 2 grocery stores and a nice coffee shop within walking distance. My favorite part was the complimentary breakfast - It was super easy to eat gluten free and they had fresh vegetables! We stayed for about a week and took several day trips...
