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.

Good location but could use some room enhancement

Staff were very helpful and room was cleaned well daily. Free Wifi worked well. The only enhancement that would have made a significant difference would have been to have a double bed instead of two singles pushed together. There was also a very good breakfast with lots of healthy choices.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Worthwhile shopping around restaurants as you can get the same food for 1/2 the cost in competing restaurants. The best food choices seemed to be salmon and cod prepared without cheese. The local cooking tradition uses a lot of cheese that sometimes drowns out the excellent fresh fish.

Look for local restaurants with simple fresh fish dishes. Prices vary greatly and with some walking around you can get the same meal at half price.

Awesome Getaway

The front desk was a great assistance especially with booking all of our tours and outdoor activities. This hotel is located right in the center if the city and it was a perfect location for us. The Scandinavian restaurant at the hotel offers great food also.

Reykjavik is a nice city but you'll need to go out of town to explore with all the tours and all the outdoor activities to really appreciate your trip to Iceland.
