Arctic Comfort Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

this hotel is located in the midst of a business district,, i would highly suggest hiring a car so you can go at your leisure, rather than trying to catch a bus , right then,, the staff was friendly enough , the room was adequate , with a double bed and 2 bunk beds if needed, 2 electric cooker plates, microwave, television, wi-fi and coffee maker, . the hair dryer blew up on the first night. the shower was an afterthought and hair in the drain was greeting us , all else was clean. breakfast was around £15 per person, its all there though.the hotel was quiet and the nice thing, its a pick up spot for the tours we took. id usually say it was overpriced for what it was but seeing, everything was on the deer side, i cannot call that a negative, all in all not a bad stay,

We stayed here as part of a package deal. The hotel is tired and slightly grubby looking. But actually the staff were friendly, the beds comfortable the rooms are spacious and have kettles, TVs, and ensuite. There’s nothing actually bad about this place it’s just a little unloved.

Arrived by car as we knew the hotel was outside of the city centre room nice and airy big enough for 3 of us to get our head down for a few nights we were in 410 in the building adjacent... it has tea and coffee making facilities which is great have along with shop bought croissants....bathroom is adequate once you get used to the smell of the water when showering ...nothing bad to say other than it does what it says on the tin...not recommended if you dont want to be far out of town but it suited us..icelands answer to a premier inn. Reception staff were helpful when I needed assistance with my sat nav....loved iceland 😀

This hotel is quite basic but we found it to be clean and comfortable enough. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with booking excursions, giving directions, advising us on the best way to get around etc. There were no frills but it was fine for a short stay. The big disadvantage was the locations, too far from the centre of Reykjavik to walk in the cold, damp weather and very expensive for taxis each day. We found a nice restaurant about ten minutes walk away but it would have been nice to be nearer the main part of the city to have more choice.

We stayed here for four nights and would definitely stay again. It's about half an hour walk into town but if you use the Strateo Bus App in the hotel and buy a ticket, you just walk down to the main road and hop on any bus into town! Very handy! We arrived in the evening, quick and easy check in. Room was perfectly adequate for us as we were only there to sleep!. Beds very comfortable and shower very powerful! Would definitely stay here again!

The hotel was clean when we arrived with the beds made and towels changed if required each day however the floors were not cleaned during our 3 night stay. It is situated in an area where there are mostly shops so was quiet most of the time. Not in a great position if you want to visit town a lot as it's a good 30 mins walk to the centre. You can catch the bus at the end of the road with buses 2, 5, 15 and 17 going there which costs approx £3.50 each one way which you can do by downloading the app and showing the driver your validated ticket you have purchased. We didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment on the food. The bathrooms are small with hardly any privacy so make sure you are on very good terms if you are staying with someone so not ideal for a first holiday, see picture. Overall a decent hotel for the price. The staff were friendly and always available.

This hotel was part of a package, it is out of the way and there is nothing much to do surrounding it. The reception is in need of a make over drastically and the hotel is split into 2 sections we were out of the door into the next block. There are no lifts so be prepared to carry your luggage up stairs, also watch out for the door jams they can trip. The rooms are very warm and you open the window via a pully system. The shower leaked over the floor and although hubby got used to sulphur smell when having a shower I couldn't. You pay 2000 isk for breakfast which tbh is not worth 5 isk. It is a 45 min walk into town, we didnt even attempt the buses as the map was not very clear. I am glad we were only there 3 nights, would I stay there again no I don't think I would

We stayed in this hotel as part of a package, probably wouldn't have booked myself. That said it was fine. Staff were friendly. The room smelt musty when we first went in but realised this was the sulphur in the hot water, cold water is fine to drink. Tea and coffee and a small fridge. Beds comfy, the quilts are a bit thin but deceptively warm. If you like a good pillow you'll be disappointed, very small flat offerings. Hairdryer wasn't working, reported on the first day but not repaired. Breakfast was 1000 ISK (about £7.25). Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, cheese, ham, waffles, jams, teas, coffee and juice. Given the price of stuff in Iceland this was quite good value for money. As the other reviews report, it's a long walk to Reyjkavik, we tried to walk but the rain meant that we gave up. A 15/20 minute walk to Kringlan shopping mal you can get a free shuttle bus into the city centre. Taxi cost about 2,500 ISK (£17.00). Now that we're aware of the area we will return to this hotel.

We were assigned this hotel as part of a holiday deal and I was a bit worried by some of the reviews. Granted this hotel is not in the town centre but the area is wonderfully quiet and there are places to shop and eat within a short walking distance. The room was clean, warm and comfortable with a TV, mini fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. It was cleaned every day. The staff were friendly and helpful. Yes the shower room has a glass front but it’s frosted and faces the wardrobe so not an issue - the shower was plenty powerful enough and no tinkering required to get a decent hot shower. The hotel makes a good base for trips but the Hilton it’s not. We were quite happy staying there however.

We stayed here as part of a package. It was very basic but clean. No restaurant on site and a bit off the beaten track. We walked into the city centre which took 45 mins. It’s nothing fancy but if you need somewhere to put your head down and you use it as a base for excursions it does the trick.
