convenient

Posted Jun 5, 2017
Conveniently located, clean. Very Scandinavian in decor, meaning sparse but everything you need. We parked our rental on the street, no problem. Walked to restaurants. A bit pricey for the simple life but everything is pricey there.

conveniently located, no frills comfort

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: The friendliness of the staff
Location: Prime location within walking distance from everything that is worth seeing in the city, The local art gallery is excellent.
The suite I occupied provided everything to make for a comfortable stay except for the view of working cranes from the attic windows. The staff are excellent - friendly, attentive and efficient.

An excellent hotel, very well run.

Posted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: See above...
Cons: I cannot suggest any improvements !
Location: See above but I could add that the restaurants both by the harbour and in the main part of town are only a few minutes walk away.
This hotel is first rate ! It is centrally located in Reykjavik which makes getting to restaurants and shops very easy as well as the museums and the cathedrals which are all worth a visit. The staff were welcoming and very efficient. A special mention for Frejya on Reception and Walid and Thomas in the dining room. Our room was well maintained and the bathroom cleaned. Would I stay there again.......YES !

Excellent location and breakfast

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Recommended. My family (12-85 years old) stayed here a week (2 rooms for family of 5) and happy with our choice. Rooms are reasonable, and clean, if a bit spartan. Beds are very firm. Safes and tea/coffee/fridge in each room. Not as luxurious as some might expect, but fine considering price, and we were out and about all day. Tip: use the robes and slippers if you go to Blue Lagoon - just don't lose them! Staff are friendly and helpful - altho not able to help with every obscure Airmiles request on the midnight shift, but hey, this is a tiny country. International and professional, they helped promptly and in perfect English with bookings, recommendations, and providing extra bedding. Location is great for walking to main sights of Reykjavik and for driving in and out. Hotel does not have its own parking, but we were always able to find a spot right outside or a block away. You do have to pay (up to $30 for 24 hours). But you can pay in advance with a credit card. Tip: Be attentive to your parking, as I noticed the police ticketing aggressively. Breakfast is awesome. Food in Iceland is super expensive. So I was very glad to get a breakfast-Included package, and everyone ate a huge breakfast to start the day!

Classy place in the heart of Reykjavik

Posted Apr 11, 2017
Pros: Unlimited hot water for showers, super friendly staff, delightful breakfast buffet.
Cons: Unfortunately, we had arrived very early in the morning and check in wasn't allowed until 2pm. We had to sit and wait. Not their fault...
Location: Located near the bay and close to the main shopping district and several levels of dining.
My wife and I went to visit Reykjavik and stayed in the upgraded business room. Was wonderful! Comfortable beds and hot showers with limitless supply of hot water. Breakfast was included in the upgrade and was very nice. Staff were very friendly. Was an absolute joy to stay there.

Very Nice Hotel in Central Location

Posted Apr 3, 2017
The Radissoin Blu 1919 is very conveniently located in downtown Reykjavik. The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. Breakfast was comprehensive and well presented. The rooms have been renovated. My room was clean and well appointed. I would stay there again.
