Hotel Island
Ranked #35 of 54 Hotels in Reykjavik
Reviewed 20 October 2017

Nice hotel in business area on the side of Reykjavik. The standard room is rather small
and needs some renovation. The room was clean and we had fresh towels every day.
Friendly and helpfull staff. The breakfast was excellent. Pick-up in front of the hotel by coaches for transport to the Airport or other trips.To the center of the City you may count a 25' walk.

Room Tip: Choose for an upgrade from standard room if you stay longer than a few days!

The room was just okay. When we arrived, the first room wasn't clean and the bed looked and smelled like the previous guest had used it as a toilet. The second room we were given had a lovely view of the road and some warehouse buildings.... Breakfast was good and the receptionists were very helpful.

Room was very good. The hotel is not in the city center, but the location was convenient since this hotel is near the Hilton where there is a bus stop for both local buses and the Hop on Hop Off. The hotel restaurant had excellent food and there was a nearby cafeteria that was very popular with locals. Next door was a thrift shop where we were able to buy beautiful Icelandic sweaters. Breakfast at the hotel was excellent. Reykjavik is very expensive, but the price at this hotel compared to elsewhere was very good.

Coaches from Airport will deliver you to the door ... tickets can be bought on board Icelandair flights as well as at airport ... Be warned 'Hotel Island' is pronounced 'Hotel Eesland'
Hotel is about 15 to 20 minutes walk from town centre .. map from reception ... head down to the prom and along the front. Hotel modern with friendly Reception staff ... rooms reasonable size ... can be very warm and needed to sleep with window open but it was early Autumn and was warmer than usual outside.
Buffet breakfast offered a wide choice and the lunch/ dining/ bar area offered snacks and meals. More expensive than Uk prices but that applies to Iceland in general. Various fast food sit down places are around the back of the hotel block plus an interesting second hand shop a couple of doors away if you need to by a cheap additional layer of clothing etc!

We stayed at the Hotel Island for 5 days. The hotel is very nice. Several reviews mentioned to request a newly renovated room. We agree. Our first room was in the older section of the property. It was in need of serious renovation. The hotel staff was fantastic. They were able to move us for our 2nd night. Big difference. Very nice, clean room with modern amenities. As most people stated the breakfast buffet was nice but we preferred to eat at one of the local bakeries in the morning. Delicious and less expensive than most Iceland prices. Zara in the bistro is wonderful and will take care of you while dining or enjoying happy hour. She is a self-proclaimed music geek who was happy to be our own DJ. Enjoy Reykjavik and Iceland in general. People are wonderful. It is pricey.
