How to Get There
Nice hotel. Good location by the marina we had one room facing ship yard which had better view than rooms on street side. Very clean staff was friendly. Rooms little small but sufficient. Only two comments would be bathroom is very small and not much privacy with bedroom and could use better blackout shades.
I recently stayed at Icelander Hotel. First of all I couldn't use e-mail on the hotel computer because I could not locate the "@" button. Louis walked over from behind the desk and showed me how (Iceland keyboards are different). Next, I had trouble operating the ATM machine in the lobby because it was in Icelandic. Again, Louis came over from the desk and walked me through it, staying with me until the transaction went through and I was happy. Finally, I asked Louis for directions to a sport supply store. He didn't just give me a map. He walked me out the door and with me until I could see visible landmarks and make the trip easily by myself. His restaurant recommendations were excellent as well. All this with great friendliness and personal concern. In short, Louis went way out of his way to make sure all my questions were answered and all my problems resolved. I was lucky to encounter him. Be sure and ask for him when you stay at the hotel if you want truly outstanding service.
Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina is located just 4 kilometers from Reykjavik Airport, which is about 10 minutes' drive. It is located very centrally in downtown Reykjavik with major markets, restaurants and places of interest within walking distance. It is also located very close to the sea, some of the rooms (even numbered rooms) have views of the sea and the ships beyond. However, there is no sea beach as such.
The entrance to the hotel is not from the main road, but from a side road. The hotel building is elongated in shape, like a ship. It has Ground Floor and two floors above. Parking may not be freely available.
The Reception is centrally located on the ground floor. The hotel gives the impression of modern decor. Instead of enclosed counters, there are two separate round tables for check in. Besides the modern decor, the hotel has many areas that provide a lot of seating, including a separate room for private meetings. The lift is to the left of the Reception. There is even a small cinema room, where movies are screened for children.
The single rooms are on the smaller side, the double rooms are slightly better. Even number rooms face the sea, others face the road. The lower floors could have the noise of traffic and revellers on weekends.
The bed was large enough and comfortable. Electric kettle with ingredients for tea and coffee and electric iron have to be requested from the Reception. There is a safe, minifridge and intercom in the room The washroom is on the smaller side and has a shower. WiFi is complimentary and the speed was good.
In case you don’t want your room to be cleaned you can hang a sign provided in the room on the door knob outside. You can collect a card worth ISK 750 for a drink in the bar.
The breakfast is at the far end of the Ground Floor (it is Floor 1 for the lift), the spread is good . Some of the tables have a view of the sea.
The Bar comes before the restaurant it has a lot of seating and is popular with people both outside and inside the hotel.
There is a small gym with limited equipment.
Overall, the hotel provides a very good location for stay in downtown Reykjavik. It has adequate facilities for common seating, modern and tasteful decor and friendly staff.
Mr. Luis at the Reception was particularly polite, friendly and helpful.
A good hotel for stay in downtown Reykjavik.
