This is our second time staying at Laxnes Hotel. We like the staff, the location, their breakfast and how close it is to downtown Reykjavík. We take the city bus which is a few steps from Laxnes Hotel. So convenient. Just have the right change, which they can tell you at Laxnes. Friendly, helpful staff.
Shaun the manager, never seems tired of all the questions we ask.

We recently stayed here, friendly staff, decent breakfast. Lots of places to eat if you have kids and a sports bar 10 mins walk from the hotel.
There are local supermarkets near by and buses to town are outside the hotel too. There is a small hot tub to enjoy after a day out.

Room Tip: all rooms have mountain view

Very nice and quiet place. Close to the beginning of the golden circle tour (witch I suggest you do). The staff was helpful and very informative! Close to Reykjavik as well, just a easy buss ride to down town Reykjavik. Will come back for sure!:)

The location is in a spacious but developed part of the country, close to all the important shops and venues, but still sequined with lush trees, monumental mountains, and a great atmosphere that carries on even as you enter the hotel, with its unique and tasteful decor that stimulates you right until you enter your room, which is fully equipped with a cozy bed, a stunning view and other such pleasantries.

The staff are all very helpful and go out of their way to make sure you're situated as best you can be, and all of them speak English very well. The breakfast was very good too, especially the waffles.

On top of this, there is a hotel hot tub, which is perfect to indulge in whenever you may feel such a whim.

Hotel Laxnes is very basic with very accommodating staff. Comfortable and nice sized rooms, with fairly tired furnishings and pub. however, Very comfortable. The downside is the location -- it's a 20 - 30 minute bus ride in and out of the city center, although the bus stop is literally right outside the hotel. You do lose a lot of time traveling back and forth on the bus however. Another downside is that there not any decent restaurants within walking distance. We ended up getting sandwiches from the grocery story a few times because the only restaurants nearby are Dominos Pizza and Subway.
