Recommended by a workmate for our first visit and was great location. We had two rooms as no family room but both were clean and cosy. Breakfast was good but busy. Quite a few steep stairs and no lift so need to request low floor if you can't carry your luggage upstairs. Would stay here again if we come back.

The location of the hotel is perfect. Easy walking distance from all of the city's main sights, but still nice and quiet. Stepping out to see the incredible church and the statue of the hotel's namesake really makes you feel like you're in the heart of the city. There is a convenience store with an ATM right behind the hotel,...

Iceland accommodation in general doesn't come cheap but I like the good location of this hotel given that it is right in front of the church (fantastic landmark in Reykavik). It is a central pick up point for most tour operators, if you do not have too many luggages - you can walk to the Fly Bus terminal (~15mins walk)....

We have stayed here for 3 nights and can't wait to come back! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and cosy, we even had our own balcony! Continental breakfast included which a nice selection, homemade cakes, biscuits and soup available throughout the day. Nice central location with beautiful buildings all around! Would definitely recommend!

We have just stayed at the Leifur Eiriksson, the location is brilliant, near plenty of restaurants and shopping and easy to find your way back to, just head for the church. Our room was a little small but all amenities were there and the room was spotlessly clean. The staff on reception couldn't have been more helpful, offering many extra...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this family run hotel. Although our room was a little on the small side, it was very clean and comfortable with a fantastic view of the famous church opposite. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The included breakfasts were varied and good plus free tea/coffee facilities all day long.

Fantastic find in Reykjavic. This hotel is in a perfect location, right across from the Hallgrímskirkja and just a couple of blocks from the main shopping street. Parking was also very easy. They serve free breakfast every morning (and not just a continental breakfast, we're talking fresh made waffles). Most importantly for me, the staff could not have been better....

Stayed here for one night. Was lucky to be upgraded from a single room to a larger double room on the 3rd floor with a spectacular view of Hallgrimskirkja church. Free breakfast was great (included waffles!), wifi fast and 24/7 free hot beverages were a bonus. An excellent base for exploring the city and convenient location for pick up for...

My daughter and I have just got back from a three night stay here for her 21st birthday. We are in no way seasoned travellers in fact this was her first time on an aeroplane! We absolutely cannot fault this cosy, welcoming hotel. The beds were comfy the room was simple but adequate and perfectly clean. The breakfast was great,...
