The hotel is perfect. We have an 8th floor ocean view executive room (837) and it is ideal. The underfloor heating in the bathroom is lush. The lobby, reception, housekeeping and concierge staff have all been helpful and prompt...We could not believe that a lady in front of us at reception was complaining about the fact her room had been...

The hotel needs to update their rooms. Had issues with the tv not working. The shower didn't work. The bed was very uncomfortable. The hotel wasn't close to much. The staff was pleasant enough. The breakfast and restaurants were excellent.

I traveled to Iceland with the Travel Department. We have used this company now for 6 trips in Europe and they always provide excellent value for money. On this occasion we stayed in the Grand Hotel who provided excellent value for money with their Bed and Breakfast rate.

There's not a lot wrong with this hotel. Comfortable, efficient and friendly staff - we can't really complain, yet... There were a few annoyances. The booklet in the room is uninformative (e.g. no info about the menu in the hotel or the tv channels available) and the safe didn't work. Parts of the menu were not as described - the... More

Enjoyed a lovely set menu dinner at the restaurant however woefully understaffed possibly due to holiday period and also large tour groups... More

We stayed for 4 nights of our 7 night stay in Iceland. It is a great base if you want to spend time in Reykjavik. The hotel caters for business and holiday guests.

It is expensive to have cocktails in our city so 50% off is something everyone should take an advantage off. Hope to welcome you another day to Grand Hotel Reykjavík.

The hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the town centre. The room was very spacious and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only book the room but was able to pay for breakfast on the day if we liked, there was a good selection to choose from to eat.
