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...

Lovely hotel, free hot drinks in the lounge which was a bonus in expensive iceland. Great position for exploring the city. friendly and helpful staff.. our room was on the top floor and was small but ok. No kettles in the room.

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...

Really enjoyed it here, staff very friendly. Because I'm disabled slightly they carried my case up for me and offered me an alternative room, desk always had personnel there. Breakfast was adequate and set us up for the day, unlimited drinks are a godsend and there is food available be it snacks or something more filling. Great location as if...

Unfortunately weather was awful but the even with a "cyclone" blowing in, this was an amazing base to explore the city from. You could always find your way back if like us, couldn't make one street sign out from the rest.....as you can see the church from everywhere in Reykjavik & it was on the doorstep of the Hotel, ideal....
