My wife and I stayed here as part of a northern Iceland trip. We couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. The staff (especially the young man working in the bar / restaurant mid week), food and the room were 1st class. Nothing was a problem at all. I would highly recommend hotel Kea.

Fantastic location in the heart of town, very comfortable rooms on the fifth floor, with a lovely outlook over the city. Beautifully comfortable beds and opening windows with easily adjustable room temperatures. Good showers and staff were very accommodating with information and a late checkout when our flights were constantly delayed and then cancelled. A flight departure and arrival board...

Our visit to this hotel was good. We had a triple room ( the only place in town that had this type of accommodation. The room was not large but we were comfortable in it. The breakfast was good with breads, meats, fruit, cereal, eggs, and more. The staff was helpful in answering questions and arranging taxis for us.

Imagine all you take at breakfast from the table full of food is: cheese, water and nice coffee because of some health restrictions. So, you beg the receptionist and the breakfast staff who both are not busy at all at the moment to just make you one short single espresso to kick off your day.. And you beg and you...

Wish I can give 3.5 stars. Best thing here is the breakfast. The room was very tight since I had one luggage and two carry ons in it. The room was stuffy and hot. And the shower is small. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Area is close to many shops.

My husband and I had a lovely stay here on our honeymoon. The receptionist was welcoming and very helpful with local information. The room was clean and comfortable.

This is an older building/hotel with a bit of charm but less than up-to-date, 5-star furniture and fixtures. The Icelandair hotel (which we did not visit) is supposedly more modern, but we didn't want to climb up and down the hill to town in the wintry weather. Everyone was pleasant and helpful, and the shopping streets are just a block...
