Great downtown location

Would recommend Mon, Nov 2, 2015
Good basic hotel with nice continental breakfast. Right next to various shops and restaurants, so the down side is the street noise. Could be improved with better window insulation/noise reduction technique for the ground floor rooms.

Family trip

Would recommend Sun, Oct 18, 2015
When we arrived the hotel staff at the desk didn't greet us with a hello or even a smile. Everything I said was if I was asking too much and really putting them out. It was 11am when we arrived and I hadn't taken notice of the check in time but it is normal on the UK to be told apologies but check in is at 2.. We have 1 room ready but the other one is not. I would have said no problem at all didn't even check the time and then put the bags back in the car and gone about the day. I just found the customer service below standard and just rude. The location of the hotel is great if you are based around downtown and the shopping streets. The rooms were clean and tidy and had everything that was needed for the stay. Shower in the room was lovely but did have a strong smell of sulphur which was like rotten eggs. Breakfast in the morning was nice - plenty of fruit, bread, cereal and yogurt. The food for lunch and dinner were very nice too and the kitchen staff were very accommodating. All round I would stay here again. You get what you pay for at the end of the say and staff at the desk you can just ignore.

Awesome location for a nice hotel

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
On Main drag, convenient to everything downtown. Front desk very service oriented. Free continental breakfast was very good. Might suggest you not get a room on the street side on weekends since the summer sun never sets and noise might be a bit bothersome. We were in the back and it was very quiet.

Solid, affordable option in Reykjavik

Would recommend Sat, Jul 4, 2015
Spacious, clean room, including a cooktop, sink, and microwave, which are very convenient given Reykjavik's food prices. The room I stayed in (201) faced an exterior hallway used by other rooms and had very little light or privacy, but I can't complain since the hotel let me check in at 8 a.m. and get some much-needed sleep after an overnight flight. Plus, I wasn't in the room other than to cook and sleep anyway, and the dark room ended up helping with the 22 hours of sun! Adequate breakfast (cold food only), and good wifi. Average finishes, nothing luxurious. Hotel staff helpful with directions, tours, etc. Would stay again.

A happy stay

Would recommend Thu, Jun 18, 2015
Very good location, even my room was in the street side it was very quiet. Breakfast was decent, I had an early check out on the next day and the hotel can also provide me the early bird breakfast at 4 AM. The restaurant next to the hotel is also good. The bed is comfortable and has everything I need. Friendly people there, can let me borrow a tea maker in my room. Very reasonable price for me and I am happy to stay again if I travel to Iceland next time.

Ideal Location

Hotel Fron is located on Laugavegur, which is the main boulevard in the Reykjavik city center. Excellent spot near all the restaurants, shops and coffee houses!

Would recommend Tue, May 12, 2015
Travelled as a couple. room was ready to get into in the morning rather than having to wait until afternoon which was great. Studio room was clean bright and had all the equipment/amenities we needed. breakfast was good, and service too. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Decent stay

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
Biggest advantage is the location - right on the main street in Reykjavik near bars and restaurants. Just be aware of the potential for noise on weekends - Icelanders like to party well into the early morning hours and it could be a problem if you are a light sleeper

Brilliant Break Away

Would recommend Mon, Dec 8, 2014
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!
