We arrived here late at night and we're tired from traveling the hotel had no reservation for us but we had proof of booking despite this they couldn't have been more accommodating and found us a room. The room was comfortable and fit 4 of us in and we had a lovely view of the mountains. We we're unlucky as...

Located outside Reykyavik (easily reached by a bus, the bus stop is right outside the hotel), Hotel Laxnes is a great base for exploring Iceland. Friendly greeting on arrival, and we were given a free upgrade to a larger room/suite with balcony, which got us off to a good start. The room was clean and comfortable, a bit basic but...

Stayed here for five nights at the end of March/beginning of April and had a fab time. I did a lot of research before booking this hotel but I'm so glad I chose it over the ones in Reykjavik which can be very bland, utilitarian and often on busy main roads. Rooms here were basic but clean, toasty warm and...

Functional, not luxurious. Easy to find with great views. Near to supermarket, food outlets, fuel station and an awesome local bakery. Also near to Alafoss falls and wool mill. Great breakfast in a relaxed setting. Overall - basic and comfortable.

Really clean room in Room 25. Really helpful staff & they gave me a late check out without any issue. The front desk was very helpful. Good fast food and other restaurants nearby & quiet area. Would strongly recommend :)

We stayed at the Hotel Laxnes for four nights in late March-early April, 2017. It is a quaint, low-key lodging about 15 minutes outside of Reykjavik (do not take a taxi from the airport -- unbelievably expensive). The rooms are simple and clean. The wonderful staff -- manager Shaun, Nunu, Karl, and Jasper -- were responsive, helpful, and friendly. They...

We picked this Hotel as it was outside of the capital Reykjavik with a good chance of seeing the Northern lights without having to go on a tour as it has a good view of the mountains from most upper rooms. Hotel is basic but rooms are clean and comfortable and a continental style breakfast was included do not expect...

A lovely hotel just outside the main town. The staff were extremely helpful with arranging tours. The room was basic but lovely and clean with a fantastic view. The breakfast was good and we made our own waffles which was fun. There was a hot tub which was filled on request and was just so cool to be in as...
