Perfect location and super convenient and walkable to most of the city bus stops if you joined any tours. We enjoyed the free breakfast every morning but serving some hot foods or having a hot station would have made it even better. The bread was always so fresh and was straight from the Sandholt bakery next door. Some other critiques would be that the walls are a little thin so we were able to hear the guests next door at times as well as the music coming from the bars next door at night time. Other than that we had a great stay and would not mind staying here again if we were ever in Iceland again.

Really nice friendly boutique-style hotel in downtown Reykjavik close to many shops, bars and restaurants. Few minutes walk to bustop for quick transfer to main BSI bus station. Includes good continental (no hot food) breakfast.

From the welcome we received upon arrival, the well appointed room, the fabulous breakfast (we will truly miss the food and staff every morning) and the evening greeting when we returned after an amazing tour, our stay at Sand Hotel was truly a home away from home. Special thanks to Halldór Bjornsson who made our stay exceptional and added to the charm of the hotel and all of it’s comfort. Thank you for everything. We can’t wait to return.

This was an excellent place to stay....It is within easy walking distance to everything. All the tours started and ended within a 5 minute walk.... The hotel itself is very nice and has a great restaurant (the morning continental breakfast was GREAT!!) and bar. I HIGHLY recommend this as your place to stay in Reykjavik!!!

Friendly staff; excellent cold buffet breakfast; limited wardrobe and storage space in our small “superior twin,” whose privacy was somewhat impacted by its exposure to neighbouring apartments, but extremely comfortable beds and an efficiently designed small bathroom. Would stay again.

Stayed in a suite. The rooms were way too hot and adjusting the thermostat did nothing in either room. The tap/shower water was just warm. Also, to have no streaming TV services in a ~$900/night hotel? I've never encountered such a low level of amenities for that money.
