“Would stay again!”
Great location (easy walk to many interesting sites around Reykjavik)! Good continental breakfast, including fruits, meats, breads, cereals, etc. The staff was extremely helpful at all times (even at our 3am check-in). The only downside was that the "blackout" curtains in our room didn't stretch all the way across the windows and weren't very effective (during July these are vital because of the 24-hours of daylight). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone visiting Reykjavik.
“Nice room, people, and amenities”
I hadn't stayed here before because it is a little off the beaten Reykjavik path. The room however was very nice, roomy, clean and comfortable, and the staff were very pleasant. A very good value, though eating at the restaurant on site is a bit expensive. Very accommodating with transportation to various locations around town. I will definitely stay here again.
“Icelandair Hotel Loftleidir”
I was very impress with the service at the hotel. The staff was very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to my friends
“Excellent Hotel and staff”
The hotel staff was wonderful. The restaurant was first rate. It's a quick walk to get into town. I would definitely stay here again.
When we checked in, one light switch didn't work and was immediately repaired (within 10 minutes). I asked for a refrigerator on arrival and got one, also within a few minutes. Since we had flown overnight and arrived with our children, I asked if they could make up the sofabeds for sleeping, which they did immediately as well. Service was remarkably good throughout our stay. Staff was helpful in finding local activities and providing directions. Hotel was under repair during our stay and only about 1/3 of the building was open. Pool was under repair as well. The hotel provided us with free tickets to any of Reykjavik's thermal pools, which turned out to be more interesting and a lot more fun than the hotel's would have been, so no complaints. Hotel is adjacent to the domestic airport, but there seemed to be only a dozen or so flights a day, none in the evening or night so noise wasn't a problem. Nice walking paths nearby. It was about a 15 minute walk to town. Most of the walk is around the perimeter of the airport. Once you reach the end of the airport, it's a short walk through a park to the center of Reykjavik. There are paved paths along the roads that circle the airport and the walk was easy. The hotel is across the street from the Pearl and there is a bowling alley up the street as well. There is a beach (with hot tubs) around 10 minutes walk away, but is only open a few days a week on the winter.
“Excellent base for exploring Reykjavik”
I booked one of their small single rooms, which turned out to be plenty roomy enough for one person. It was themed, with poetry from an Icelandic Poet (Davíd Stefánsson) on the walls. The restaurant was a bit pricey - but it is Iceland - and food is pricey there. The food was passable to OK. The staff were all apparently from Eastern Europe - but quite friendly and helpful. Front Desk personnel were used to stupid tourist questions, and were quite helpful. There is a Reykjavik Excursions desk at the hotel - which is very convenient also. A short (20 - 30 minute) walk or IKr 1700 taxi ride will get you to the downtown Reykjavik.
“This hotel is in good location and well mantain”
Excellent beds, early check in, fast internet, free parking. Hotel Loftleidir is a perfect base to explore Iceland. The hotel has everything a modest traveler may need. Very important they let you in 9am (4am EST) – right after a ride from airport. I recommend rent a car in Iceland. Taxi and bases are overpriced. Parking is no problem in city center. Driving around Iceland is easy. Roads are good. GPS is a big help. Iceland is beautiful in summer. I can’t wait to see her in winter.
“A good buy in expensive Reykjavik”
This hotel is right at the domestic airport in Reykjavik, and has a free shuttle taking you back and forth into the center. Nice free breakfast too. And if you are thinking of a day trip to Greenland or other places in Iceland, you are right there!
“Can't wait to go back”
A very modern, stylish, beautifully decorated hotel with an indoor swimmingpool that was just breathtaking. A very helpful and gracious staff.
The room was very clean, in good condition and quiet (which I was worried about since we had a room that faced the airport). The staff was friendly and helpful. My husband and I had dinner in the hotel restaurant 2 times; it was rather expensive, but the food and service were very nice. Service in the hotel bar was slow, but very polite staff. My only complaint was the one time we ate breakfast at the hotel; we arrived at 9:30 (breakfast ends at 10) and the staff all but pulled the chairs out from under us. We felt very, very rushed... which was a shame since breakfast was $30 for the 2 of us! As a bonus: the company we booked all our tours through and the Flybus drop off/pick up at this hotel. The hotel also runs a shuttle bus to and from the City Center several times a day (thought if you miss the bus, the walk is relatively short).
