Booked this hotel totally at random and were so pleased with the location, it's right opposite the iconic Hallgrímskirkja, which means you can find your way back from almost any part of Reykjavik! On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, who spoke excellent English, which was fortunate as we had neglected to learn any Icelandic (poor!). Our room was...

We enjoyed our 4 night Iceland vacation in Hotel Leifur Eiriksson's apartment. We had reserved any double room, and told at check in that we were upgraded to the apartment. We enjoyed having a refrigerator in the kitchen for drinks, although we never actually cooked. The furnishings were a tad bit worn, but everything was fine and comfortable. This hotel...

Leifur Eriksson is a great hotel in a fantastic location. Definitely recommend. Good WiFi (should you want), a really lovely little bar area for breakfast and drinks and good staff who were very pleasant. Breakfast (don't listen to the other reviews criticising it) was great. Just enough - it's a small hotel and it's Iceland - do you really want...

Hotel very central for exploring Reykjavik, close to restaurants and the harbour. Reception staff welcoming and efficient, always available to assist. Ours was a twin room which was basic, clean and spacious. Coffee & tea available constantly downstairs, good buffet breakfast.

We stayed for a few nights as part of a northern lights holiday. Once checking into our room we were a little underwhelmed. We were in the annexe across the road, which seemed a little unloved compared to the main building. The room was very basic, no TV, no safe and limited room cleaning. The beds were hardly made during...

Great place to stay. The room was small but all we needed. The staff were accommodating and helpful. The free coffee and breakfast were more than what we expected and very nice. The hotel location can not be beat. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family coming to Reykjavik.

Right in front of the hotel is Hallgrímskirkja Church, the morning view is really something. The staff was friendly, helpful, as all the Icelandic people I have met. we almost missed the northern lights cruise tour but made it thank for their help. Basic room but it was enough. The receptionist guided us to a restaurant which serve amazing fish...

Hotel was clean and staffed 24/7. Breakfast was good too. This hotel has free coffee and tea 24/7 which was great during the cold days we spent in Iceland! There is NO parking on-site, but that is common in Reykjavik. The nice thing about this hotel was that there is free parking around Hallgrímskirkja across the street. Out room looked...
