I would just say – definitely stay at this hotel! We were greeted by a very friendly young Icelandic girl in the early evening. Our room was big – a double bed and a single. The toilet is also clean and of a fair size with individual portions of shampoo and soap. It also had a big terrace from where... More

This hotel is easily accessible and 30 min drive from keflavik airport. We had a couple of issues with our room on arrival as it was full on single beds but the lovely receptionist gentleman was extremely helpful and came to re make the beds together for us and also gave us a complimentary drink for the trouble. Otherwise our... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel on our recent stay in Reykjavik. The hotel itself was very good and offered a very nice continental breakfast with plenty of choice. When we arrived our party were offered free room upgrades to suites. Ours was lovely with a corner aspect offering two separate views. The room had a kitchette, which... More

Although we didn't stay in this hotel( we were down the road at T10) I just wanted to say that the staff were amazing and very helpful. All of our tours and pick ups were from here and the staff were always friendly and helpful .

First impressions The hotel appears modern from the outside and is decorated modern within. Although the decor is modern it is shabby in places. The hallway on the second floor can do with the carpet being cleaned. Apparently there is a games room inside the hotel, however this was locked when I went to take a peak. Cleanliness The cleaners... More

Stayed up the road at the T10 - the walk is takes 30 seconds. Got all transfers from here and tours. On time and helpful staff that were on hand to help despite not staying here. Also lost my passport on one of the buses and moved heaven and earth to reunite me with it. Thank you

This was a really nice quiet hotel right on the busline to Reykjavik. The bed was very comfortable, the place was spotless and very quiet. The breakfast was the same each day but was certainly adequate with excellent jams and breads. I was disappointed to not have a hair dryer, safe and kettle in my room. Had I had those... More

Stayed at Hotel Hafnarfjordur from 23rd-26th September on a Fleetway travel bed & breakfast deal, so only hotel option available. It’s around 30 minutes from Keflavik airport and on a main road so lots of traffic noise, but convenient for the bus into Reykjavik. Breakfast was the normal continental breads, meats, cheese, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumber, yoghurts, cereals and... More

Had a superior suit on third floor. Great room with wood floors couch and kitchenette. Views from windows were great and they are ceiling to floor. Furniture is modern and comfortable.

5 days & 5 nights, in this hotel, really enjoyed our stay. Got back to the hotel, after our trip to see the northern lights at about 2am, and the night shift on reception greeted us, and was as bright as a button, as were all the staff, nothing was to much trouble for them. Now the breakfast, get out... More
