It is a clean and nice place with good breakfast. the location is not so much convenient cause its kind of far from the center, but its walkable about 20 min or so. You can take city bus as well. The good thing is that most of the travel companies will pick you up and drop you off. Too bad has no pool or Jacuzzi :) otherwise nice place to stay.

The staff was outstanding and the place is immaculate.

Typical hotel with nice room & private bath, bar & breakfast area. Had keycard access. Most hotel-like place we stayed in Iceland - much different that guesthouses. Large breakfast; very crowded & busy.

Had stayed before in 2017. Reasonable price good breakfast and friendly staff and good happy hour. Only complaint is all the cigarette butts by the front entrance. Just leaves a bad first impression when arriving.

Great breakfast! Super friendly staff! Very clean!

The receptionist was very nice and took care of us.

modern interior, very clean, in the middle of the city about 10 minutes drive from downtown . bunch of restaurants nearby. good breakfast every morning.

Amazing location. Comfortable rooms Easy to explore Reykjavik and the mid-Iceland attractions and south/west

Hotel staff was over the top polite & friendly. Room was a bit small for the price but very comfortable bed & shower. Would easily go back next time Im in Iceland.

Nice, clean hotel with good breakfast. Very small rooms.

First time in Reykjavík and Iceland for that matter, overall had a great experience

Clean, modern hotel. Comfortable bed, dreamy coverlets. Buffet breakfast quite full of options. Only wish that we'd known to check in first; get room key to operate lift (need to get in lift on 1st floor, use keycard to get elevator down to street level in order to travel with bags on lift). Otherwise, one lugs bags up a flight of stairs getting to the check-in desk.

The room was pretty small, but for the price we paid in Reykjavik standards, can't complain. We had a room with two twin beds joined together, which came up close to the size of a queen bed. They did not have any king bed option, not to my knowledge. For the price we paid plus with free breakfast buffet, I believe the price was reasonable for their standards. The only issue we had was that we arrived so early in the morning at the hotel, which was due to the flight schedule. We were aware that the check in time is at 2:00 p.m. but was hoping there would be a room for us to check into before 2:00 p.m. We were told that there was no room, so we waited in the lobby for about 5 hours coming from a sleepless night travel. I checked with the front desk around 11:00 a.m., and I was informed that the guests in the room that we are assigned to have not even checked out yet. Why not assign us a different room? So we waited, and the room could have been available before 2:00 p.m. but front desk did not inform us. Like they really had us wait until it's check in time. Hotels should be flexible sometimes with this policy especially when you have guests that have been waiting for 5 hours in the lobby.

Reykjavik Lights is located along a strip of hotels and restaurants off a major throughway, across from the football stadium. It's a long walk to city center, but busses run the road and there are bike and walking paths across the street. We stayed one night in a double bed room. It was small and paint was peeling from the windowsill, but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast in the morning was very good: eggs, breads and pastries, yogurt, fruit, vegetables, deli meat, and herring. All in all a good stay.

Lights hotel was a mile or so away from "downtown" Reykjavik..This IMO is a great thing. Solid breakfast buffet..Friendly and helpful staff..Very Clean. Nice eating options in the lobby level of the surrounding buildings. Plenty of parking..No complaints!

The hotel is very nice, with helpful staff that you can ask anything. The breakfast is kind of continental breakfast in Iceland

The hotel staff was extemely helpful. We were able to book all our trips att the hotel and the us would pick us up right there. We bought the City Pass, rode the buses an went to many museums in the city.

room was a little small but efficient and clean. Staff did a great job of cleaning room and bathroom every day. Good location. Staff was helpful.

We had a great stay. Really enjoyed the breakfast, proximity to one of the thermal pools, and the very friendly and accommodating staff. After having an overnight flight, we arrived to the hotel at 8am with the plan of dropping off our luggage and then hitting the town or pool, but they had a room all ready for us and let us access our room at 8 am. It was awesome and much appreciated. They were always very friendly in all interactions.

Thank you for mentioning the location as a pro. Most people think it is a con to not be in the dead center of the downtown area. Until they realize the noise that comes with it. We hope you enjoyed your stay here and hope to see you again in the future!
