We stayed in this hotel 2 nights before our tour, 1 night after our tour, and 1 night after our self-guided tour. Each visit was excellent and each room clean and orderly. This is not a luxury hotel but we did not spend much time in our rooms. Great value for the price. It is near to the center of...

The first room was very dated and need a refurb, shower taps had a plastic piece missing and the shower tray was covered in mud dirt which wouldnt come off. Appeared ingrained.

We were met the first night by the hotel clerk John B. who was very welcoming, ready to help and treat you as a true guest. In fact all of the staff was very friendly. (WE LOVE the WARM people in Iceland)!! The breakfast had an array of items from european yogurts to fresh fruit, breads, pastries, cereals, meats, fish,...

We stayed one night and found our studio room spacious and comfortable. Our curtains did an adequate job blocking out the light and we slept well. The breakfast was yummy with waffles, bread, fruit, eggs, sausage, 4 kinds of herring, cold cuts, yogurt and other items. Location was fine, close enough to restaurants and other destinations. Staff was friendly and...

Nice and clean hotel located close to The Harpa and in a walking distance from the harbour. The breakfast was very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The stay in Fosshótel Baron was pleasant and it suited us well. This hotel is a good budged.

Good location and decent service, but hotel needs some updating. It is within easy walking distance of most of what you might want to see. The breakfast is typical of Iceland, which is to say, hearty.

The staff was very friendly. We started and ended our tour here. The 1st room was small and there were no blackout curtains. Iceland in the summer needs blackout curtains. This did not make for good sleep. The 2nd room also did not have blackout curtains (nor did the hotel seem to believe in the need for them). The rooms...

I was very impressed with the hotel and the facilities, the staff went out of their way to ensure you had everything you needed and didn't mind going that extra mile. The food provided by the hotel was a buffet breakfast, consisting on waffles, fruit, cereal and hot options. The room was spacious with some kitchen facilities, a large table...
