We were lucky enough to have a very large room, with its own cooking facilities and fridge (what a treat). We also enjoyed having real soap (instead of the bath lotion) - also a treat! There were also some nice wine glasses, so we were able to have a nice dinner for two in our spacious room.
When we arrived at the hotel at 10PM something was wrong with our Booking reservation but luckily the young man at the reception managed to find a room for my son. He was really kind and professional and didn't lose his temper like sometimes happens here in Italy in a similar situation.
We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It lies in the center of Reykjavik, near the restaurants and shops . It is easy for the tourist to stroll about and visit all the main places of interest without using the car. Fron Hotel doesn't have a private parking, but you can find lots of parking facilities in the neighbourhood. We had no problems about that, even if I must admit that 2020 is a peculiar year, with not many tourists around Iceland. Buffet breakfast.
Good value for money.
We stayed 1 night in a smaller room then went on a 3-day tour and came back to stay another 4 nights in a larger apartment. Everything about this place was fantastic.
First of all the staff are terrific. We arrived very early in the morning on Day 1; and they were able to get us into a room right away, which allowed us to unload our things, take a brief catnap, and freshen up. When we went on our 3-day tour, the hotel allowed us to leave a suitcase behind for safe keeping. They provided us with a fantastic recommendation for dinner (lamb at Matarkjallarinn). And when we called them after having checked out and headed to the airport only to discover our flight was cancelled, they were able to accommodate us for another night in our same room at a discounted rate.
The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable. The first room was smaller but offered plenty of room and was just what we needed for a one-night stay. The second apartment was spacious and offered us the ability to spread out. There was a balcony. The kitchen had a kettle, coffeemaker, and refrigerator. Breakfast each morning was a nice array of continental offerings.
The location cannot be beat. We walked everywhere. Shops and restaurants are right outside the door. We visited Harpa, City Hall, Sun Voyager, the Saga Museum, etc., all on foot. After breakfast each morning, we headed to Kaffibrennslan for coffee. Lovely, friendly coffeehouse.
We will definitely return!
