Brilliant Break Away

Just came back from spending 4 nights at Hotel Fron, and would 100% reccommend it to anyone visiting Reykjavik. The location of the hotel is perfect. Right in the centre of the main street of the City, a great base to have. It also means you are one of the first to be picked up for trips, and get your choice of coach seats. The hotel has a very nice and cosy feel to it, the rooms were of a desent size and very comfortable. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and friendly, and do any trip arrangements for you. We had bed and breakfast, and I was impressed with the selection of foods on offer. The one very minor downside to the room was the lack of kettle, and the nice smell of sulphur from the shower, but this is Iceland, so you need to get use to that anyway. Will definitely be visiting the country again as it was the best trip I have ever had, and I will definitely stay at this hotel again, perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect trip!

5 Nights in Reykjavik

Purchased Fly Bus pass directly from the Reykjavik airport which was approx $40 round trip. This bus took us to Reykjavik Excursions where we took another, smaller bus to straight to hotel. Buses were clean and comfortable. Arrived to Hotel Fron at approx 0800 and we were able to leave our luggage in downstairs luggage room until we were able to check in. Our rooms were cleaned very quickly. There was a mix up with the rooms and I was placed in an apartment with 3 beds and it was just me. Worked out great for me. The white building (apartments) does not have an elevator to bring your luggage up. The blue building (one bedroom rooms) did have an elevator. Breakfast is not available on day you check in. Staff was rather friendly. Breakfast consisted of rather traditional foods: multiple breads (including yummy rye bread), boiled eggs, sliced cheese and meats, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, cereals (corn flakes, cheerios and granola), milk, yogurt, marmalades/jellies, and coffee and juices. The earlier to breakfast, the better (available from 6:30-9:30). Closer to 9:30 the crazier the small restaurant got. Hotel Fron was located right in City Center and was very close to just about everything. We did the Northern Light tour, Laxnes Horse Riding and Golden Circle tour and I did the Blue Lagoon. Each tour picked you up directly from the hotel. Drop offs weren't necessarily right in front of hotel, but in close proximity. Pick up was pretty prompt, so be down about 20 minutes prior to pick up. Our flight left at 4:40 pm and we took the 2 pm bus and felt it was kind of close on the way back. Multiple pamphlets and tours available for purchase right at front desk. While I was at Hotel Fron, there was construction being done on the white building. It started about 7:30 every morning. This didn't bother me because I was up early anyway. However, I could see how it could be an incredible nuisance. Check out was a breeze at 11:00 am. They let us keep our bags in luggage room until bus picked us up at 2. My apartment came with a full kitchen with microwave and fridge (beers, wines and chips available for purchase), nice dining area with tv, and two bedrooms with 3 beds. One bathroom to be shared. There was a European type all in one washing machine, which I had no clue how to use. I don't think it dries your clothes. There was an iron available. They provided small shampoos (no conditioner) and body bar soaps. Shower was good size and water pressure was amazing. I wouldn't bring shampoo next time and just bring conditioner. Blow dryer available too. I would absolutely stay again in this hotel. It was great!

Would not recommend this hotel.

Paid for superior room but was shocked getting tIny room with 2 twin beds right on top of each other pushed together like a double bed with no room to separate. Smelled funny, towel rack hanging off the wall, light doesn't work, old blinds, old furniture, etc., etc. Location is good, and the hotel hostess was very nice/helpful, but there are way better properties for this price.

Good experience and very good value

Great location on the main street in Reykjavik, close to everything in town. Friendly and courteous staff, who helped us plan our tours outside the city. Rooms were nice enough for a long weekend, though my wife and I would've loved a queen-sized bed instead of 2 twins. We experienced flooding in our first-floor room after a night of very heavy rain, and without having to ask, we were upgraded to a studio on a higher floor for the remainder of our stay.

Stay at Hotel Fron in August 2014

Had a great time at the Fron! The location was a highlight. The hotel is situated on the main street, and is within a 10 minute walk from restaurants and tour pickups. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here!

Pleasant and sufficient

Overall my experience was good. The room was a little dingy with cracks in the walls and mold in some corners, but otherwise it wasn't bad. I stayed one night and was comfortable. The hotel staff were excellent. Very helpful and knowledgeable. They were generous with their assistance and made me feel welcome there.

Excellent location

Excellent location near shops, restaurants, and attractions. Rooms are clean and very functional, if not fancy or luxurious. Those on the side facing the main street - Lauavegur - can be noisy at night.

Ideal location to explore Reykjavik!

Overall this hotel was wonderful because of it's amazing location right in the center of Reykjavik. Easy walking distance to all spots in town. Nice, clean accommodations. Quiet at night despite late night partying nearby at bars and clubs. Overall very happy with our stay and would definitely stay here again next time.
