We were pleasantly surprised at the location of our hotel. It is within walking distance of many center city sites. Food is expensive and we were pleased that the wonderful breakfast was included in our room cost. A similar breakfast at the airport cost 22 Krona. The front desk staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. Prior to our trip, the staff promptly responded to our e-mail questions. The facility is older but it is clean and well-maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: As our room did not face the street, we did not have an issue with noise.

Our room was ready when we arrived (rm 103). The room was nice, and having been to Europe several times the size was not a big deal. It worked for what we needed.
The buffet continental breakfast we great and filling every morning. The wonderful lady at the front desk was so helpful. She informed us that our Northern Lights Tour had been cancelled for this evening. This gave us a chance to get out and explore Reykjavik, which we did. When we come back, and we will. We will stay here.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper do not get Room 103.

Arrival at Keflavik Airport was well dealt with and pick up was soon on way to Reykjavik. The coach drops you at the main terminal and then mini bus you to your hotel. Reykjavík has 12 drop off stops for the Hotels and Fron is no. 7. (these are also pick up points for the tour companies) Once dropped at no. 7 a fifty metre walk up the slight hill then turn right and another 70 metre uphill walk, then turn left and the Hotel Fron is about 30 metres away. Less than 5mins from the stop. Check in is quick and easy and you are given the WiFi code at that time. The rooms are comfortable and adequate, the bathrooms are small but everything is there. Be prepared for the water's smell from the shower though! It's very strong on sulphur, it isn't the drains! . (this is not restricted to this Hotel btw) One failing of this hotel is no kettle or hot drink facility in the room, this was greatly missed. Breakfast is served in the adjoining bar to the hotel and can be a little cramped as so many people are up early for tours. If you are a light sleeper try to get a room which is not over the bars which are both sides of the hotel on the ground floor. Music is not that loud but if you're a light sleeper as our friend was this may be a tad annoying. I would recommend this hotel as an economical stay, the staff were friendly and helpful, and there are numerous restaurants and bars in the vicinity of it. BUT! Be prepared for a shock especially if you are from the UK, Iceland is very, very expensive. Beer is anything from £8-£11 for 500ml. Wine is about £7-£8 a glass. A basic one course meal with a drink each for two will set you back £40-50. At the Geyser cafe I paid £10.50 for three drinks from a vending machine. Clothing is expensive also. So take something warm rather than think you'll buy it out there. As stated, Hotel Fron is a good base to work from for a short break in Iceland, IF I were to go back I would happily stay there again, but it is unlikely as Iceland is just so darned expensive!! ( but we did get to see the Northern lights

Hotel fron is very convenient being in the centre of rekyavik. The breakfast is continental and although the same every day there is plenty and always fresh. Our room was comfortable and maybe a bit on the warm side even though the heat was off, not sure what could be done about that. There is no kettle in the room. There is a well stocked mini bar. Reception staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the hotel suffer from noise due to being above the pub next door

I have stayed at this hotel twice in one of their studios. It's worth paying the extra for the bigger room which includes a seating area, kitchen with fridge and microwave.

It's nice to be able to make a coffee and relax on the two seater sofa provided whenever you feel like it.

The hotel itself is very good with good facilities and the rooms are kept clean and are up to a good standard.

One of the best points is the fantastic location. This hotel is right in the centre of Reykjavik's Main Street with a short walk to excellent eateries cafes and bars.

Room Tip: Book a studio
