Dear Augee, Thanks for staying with us. We are happy to hear we met your expectations! We hope that we will welcome you as our guest again at your next visit in Iceland. Best regards, Susanne Lehrer Front Desk


pretty good- get the breakfast included with your


The staff is absolutely wonderful. They were so helpful and so friendly. I cannot say enough good things about them. The room was fairly comfortable. We had 3 people in the suite room, and the 3 of us had more than enough room. If we had more people, however, we might have been a bit cramped, as there is only 1 bathroom. I found the beds to be a bit uncomfortable, but to be fair the other people I was with didn't seem to mind them as much as I did. Overall the room was very clean. There were some dust bunnies under the bed, but the surfaces that I touched everyday were very clean. The bathroom was always clean and the shower was quite amazing. If you stay here, it is a good idea to get the continental breakfast. There is a wide assortment of food (I stayed for 4 nights and had something different for breakfast every morning) and the food is very, very good. Seeing how expensive things are in Reykjavik, we saved a ton of money by having breakfast at the hotel. In sum, my experience was pleasant and overall good. For the price paid, this was a very good value and I am very satisfied. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to a friend.

The location is very convenient - everything around is very easy to get to! The hotel staff was so nice and the breakfast was a perfect start to the day.

Thank you very much for the review. We appreciate it.


disappointing substitute by orbitz


I had booked travel and lodging through Orbitz and was happy to stay at Kvosin Hotel. Several days later, I was told that hotel was fully booked. Fosshotel Baron was to be a similar hotel close to Kvosin. However, while Kvosin was a 4 star hotel in a quaint neighborhood, FossHotel Baron was in a much different neighborhood and was, at best, a 3 star experience. It was not at all close to the neighborhood we initially chose. The hot water reeked of sulfur such that we smelled worse after showering than we did beforehand. The staff was fine but not friendly or particularly helpful. The breakfast selection was good. I truly feel we deserve monetary compensation as this hotel was obviously significantly inferior to our original choice, upon which our price was quoted.

friendly staff old and dated hotel


The staff was friendly and even allowed us to store our luggage all day after check out while we went on our all day excursion. The hotel room itself was very disappointing as the red/pink carpet was beyond dated and dirty with old stains. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was spacious but just felt “not fully clean” and very uncomfortable. Bathroom was old and I had to skip showering as I felt “dirty” just stepping in. On a positive note the complementary breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. Hotel is also close to bus stops 9 and 10, so makes it very convenient for booking excursions. We stayed for one night only, as we changed hotels to stay at Skuggi few doors down. Previous few days were spent at Reykjavik4you apartments which were much much better, more modern, spacious and most importantly cleaner! Also, do not lose your room key as there is a $50 lost key fee.

very accommodating


We arrived there at 5:00 a.m., obviously, way before the check-in time, and they were able to check us into our room, despite the early hour. In addition, they also upgraded our room free of charge. The room was lovely and very comfortable. The beds were amazing, and I never slept as good as I did there.

adequate property


It is an older hotel, but kept up and clean. Our room was small, but had everything we needed. Decor was unique to Iceland. The breakfast buffet was quite good with both hot and cold food and plenty of it. We found the staff very friendly especially the young man on night duty. They were very helpful with arranging a tour for us and making sure we had our airport pickup.

Good location . Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Tours can also pick you up here . Breakfast is good ... plenty of choices including hot items (eggs, sausage , potatoes ). This is good savings as food is expensive in Reykjavik.

older hotel than expected, but 5 star breakfast!


Looking at the pictures, it seemed alot more modern. I was surprised to see the older carpet and older condition in the hallways overall. However, the breakfast is exceptional, and amazing, which makes up for it. Rooms are on the smaller side. We had an amazing view of the harbor, but the water smell was pretty strong. I wish they had food for purchase at lunch and dinner because it was a hassle to leave in the evenings to grab food, after a long day and just wanting to rest.
