4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff was very friendly. They also allowed me to stay slightly longer before checkout so I could got from checkout directly to my flight. Breakfast was great. At first breakfast, there was no dairy free milk options. However they were prompt and went the extra mile in addressing it for the next day breakfast (we notice a staff member later in the day walking on the street with the lactose free option milk in hand) However there were some cleanliness issues. There were still potato chip crumbs on the floor when checked into the room. And a bottle cap on the bathroom floor. Even after 2 daily housekeeping, it did not get cleaned up. I would definitely stay here again.

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.

Ideally situated right in the centre the Hotel Fron is an ideal base to explore Reykjavik. There is coffee making facilities and a fridge which is ideal. Breakfast is continental but plentiful. It can get a little noisy but I wore earplugs on Friday night and apart from that it was fine, Would recommend and definitely return,
