A short 15-minute drive from Reykjavik. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Gas station, KFC, subway, convenience stores across the street. Hotel staff will do everything they could to help from trip itinerary to mobile phone chargers. Great place to stay.

We stayed here in March 2016. We had an amazing time! The hotel is about 10 minutes drive out of Reykjavik and is a perfect base to see everything in Iceland. We hired a car and the hotel is not far away from the Golden Circle. The rooms are warm, quiet and comfortable and the beds are amazing! We had...

So glad I booked to stay at Hotel Laxnes. Perfect location for us as we needed to travel to the sports complex in Egilsholl everyday for the European Youth Tenpin Bowling Championships. We took the number 6 bus every day which stops right outside the hotel and this also goes in to the main city centre. We had a couple...

We stayed at Hotel Laxnes from 19th - 24th March as a couple visiting Iceland on our first trip. We rented a car to drive to the hotel around 1 hours drive give or take. First contact impressions from the hotel were amazing, they are very very quick and friendly at replying to emails and answering the phone, and answered...

My family and I spent 4 days at Hotel Laxnes in March. We chose the Laxnes due to its location outside of the city and hired a car directly from the hotel to drive the Golden Circle and also some of the western coast. The hotel is a motel style place and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast was adequate...

Stayed here for a week from the 17/03 - 24/03 with my girlfriend to do regular tourist sightseeing and tours. We both would say the hotel is a little bit flattered by the rating on here, as mainly travellers live by Tripadvisor for booking places in these tourist destinations. - There is little choice for breakfast (personally we would expect...

We stayed at Hotel Laxnes for 5 nights at the beginning of March. We found it on Tripadvisor and although we usually prefer to stay centrally, we took a gamble on staying on the outskirts of the city. It really paid off. The hotel was lovely, our room was excellent and extremely good value. Warm, comfortable and friendly, Laxnes was...

A small hotel with comfy rooms.....not lavishly appointed but quite adequate. We were warmly welcomed at checkin. About 15-20 mins from the centre of Reykjavik so a car is advised; having said that, it is right on the Golden Circle road so it makes access to there easy. A good breakfast included and some basic food options nearby the hotel...including...

If you're looking for five star luxury you'll be disappointed but for us, this hotel was ideal. Let me warn anyone in advance who's visiting Iceland for the first time that the warm water and the rain does smell of sulphur (eggy!) due to the fact the water is heated by natural volcanic activity etc. So don't be surprised if...
