Overall, we had an excellent experience staying there. No complaints about the room or the service. I wish it were just a bit closer to Reykjavik city center, but we knew that when we reserved the room, so no real room for complaining there.

bon rapport qualité/prix pour un voyage d'affairePosted Apr 25, 2016 on Hotels
très bon accueil, personnel très aimable et parlant parfaitement anglais. L'hotel est un peu excentré mais de bon rapport qualité/prix pour un voyage d'affaire ou un court séjour.

Hotel details need updatingPosted Apr 6, 2016
Pros: There wasn't anything not to like.
Cons: The showerhead
Location: Close to a major shopping centre and a short taxi ride away from the capital
The details on the Expedia site for the Samari Hotel Iceland need updating as the booking form had the choice of smoking and non-smoking rooms, so I booked both rooms needed as smoking rooms. It is illegal to smoking in any public building and has been for some time. Also the breakfast was not just continental as stated in the description, there were bacon and eggs available which was a welcomed addition and it was buffet style which also went down well with us. The rooms were well maintained apart from the shower head. The smell when the hot water was running was quite nasty, but that is the case, not just in the hotel but in the country as a whole due to the hot water coming straight from under ground. We only stopped 3 night so maybe if we were there longer we would got used to it and not noticed it so much. We arrived after 12am and our keys were left taped to the closed reception door which I thought was great as we then didn't have to hang around until a member of staff called back to the hotel to check us in. The reception was well stocked with tourist information leaflets which we took advantage of as well as the help we had from the reception staff. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. All in all the hotel receives a big tick from us and we would definitely stay there again if we were to go back to Iceland.
