Great trip

The hotel was great, the location is perfect just the wifi was awful, didn't work in our rooms and barely worked in the lobby and sky deck. The staff was outstanding so helpful and would go out of their way to make us feel welcome!!!

Sight seeing trip

The hotel was in an excellent location both beautiful views of the harbour and waterfront. We were lucky to have this view. Other views may be of a small carpark at the back of the hotel. Not so nice. Breakfast was great! Lots to choose from and served right up to 10am We enjoyed the spa at the hotel as it was small and you could use whenever you wish. There were no other guests in it when we used it. Was like a personal spa. The mini bar prices are too expensive however the general price of food and drink is expensive. The sky bar does a good happy hour. Again not very busy in Jan but a nice relaxing break . Staff were really helpful and were able to book trips and take emails on your behalf from your companies if trips were cancelled. Great all round Have recommended it to friends. Located on flat area but to get to the main shopping street it is hilly.

Book tours at location as they may be cancelled due to bad weather this makes refunding easier

Great Hotel

This hotel is in a great location, just a few minutes walk into the town. Staff were wonderfully helpful and sincere. Rooms were nicely decorated with all you need for a stay. We loved the underfloor heating and stayed toastie warm throughout. The only downside for us was the food. Breakfast was great for meat eaters but lacking a little in variety for us vegetarians. Also, as it doesn't have a restaurant we missed having an evening meal in the hotel when we didn't feel like braving the weather again at the end of a very full day. None of that spoiled the holiday though and we would not only recommend but we would also love to return some time.

Casual, comfortable hotel with very friendly vibe

In our two visits to Reykjavik in 18 months we stayed at four hotels and this was our favorite. It's across from the Harpa Concert Hall -- a must-see -- and just two blocks from the main shopping street. We spent a nice long evening enjoying the view, food and drinks in the Sky Bar (all superb) and all you have to do is just go downstairs for a pretty fine spa experience with sauna, steam, hot tub, showers and relaxing area. Our room was a decent size, not spacious but functional and comfortable with great duvets and reliable Wi-Fi. The staff is gracious and helpful in every way. The hotel is a little austere-looking on the outside but inside you'll find a very friendly vibe. Highly recommended!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Happy hour in the Arnarhvoll's Sky Bar is a good value, and for a light dinner try the incredibly good salmon salad.

Great location . Typical European small room and bath. Quiet street. Desk staff very helpful with restaurant suggestions. Very little parking if you rent a car. Free street parking from 6pm to 8am.
