Room 2/5: Before getting to the room, the hotel hallways were a little off-putting - bright red carpets and wallpaper (kind of reminded me of being in the 1980s). The room was also dated, but had a decent size for 2 people. The floors were tiled and you can tell the tiles were old which made the room feel less...

Stayed for 2 nights, great rooms, superb buffet breakfast, friendly staff. About 15 minutes from Reykjavik Centre by bus or cab. But a great location for taking tours and getting back to the airport and visiting iceland's biggest shopping centre.

Amazing staff. They call the tour operators and confirm things. Their advice is amazing on the timing of the pick ups, so follow their advice. Be earlier than allocated time (Thanks Stephan for this advice!) They're so polite and professional it's amazing. Thank you. Breakfast is amazing too. They don't shy up on the refill even 5 minutes before closing...

We have just returned from Iceland, and the hotel although is a budget 3 star hotel over there, would be classed as more of a 2 star plus one in the UK. Towels and Toiletries provided, unusual to see Tea and Coffee making facilities in room. But they were certainly there with a great selection of different types of teas...

South of Rekyjavik a great base if you don't want to be in the thick of it 24/7. Close to Smariland Iceland biggest shopping mall. (It's not that big in comparison but why compare.) Close to two local outdoor thermal pools that cost the same as your local swimming baths but much more fun. Breakfast is provided and is really...

This was a nice hotel. Our travel agency booked us here because we had three people. The hotel is near a very nice mall that is within walking distance and the bus stop is a short walk. The rooms are basic and clean. I agree with one commenter on the pillows being thin and few. My friend was very happy...

The hotel is just outside of town so highway access during rush hour is better than in town. Reykjavik is about a 15 minute ride. The rooms are efficient and inexpensive. All staff were all very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast is sufficient. I particularly like the fresh warm wheat bread. Come down early if you want warm eggs and...

We spent one night here after we flew into Iceland. We were able to check in at about 9 am and take a nap before sight seeing. The hotel is new and nice, but not fancy. Standard Nordic design. The pillows are small and week but they gave us an extra set. Breakfast was good, standard Icelandic fare. Eggs, bacon,...

Hotel Smari was our first stay in Iceland, and we were pleased with the accommodations. Staff was friendly and very willing to help with our questions.
