This was an amazing place to stay. A central location so it was easy to explore the city. Easy to locate thanks to the church but what really made the experience was the friendly atmosphere, around breakfast all travelers were sharing advice and their experiences...More
Just got back from a 4 day package to Reykjavik. The Leifer Erikkson hotel was part of the package so we just took what we were given. What we were given was a real little gem!
Ok it's not luxury, it's a basic 3 star...More
The hotel is set in a beautiful location - ask for a room facing the church. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The free hot drinks are perfect after a long day exploring the wonders of Iceland and the staff are friendly and approachable. We...More
The Leifur Eiriksson was a special find. It was the only hotel I could find that did breakfast included in the price, which is momentous when Iceland is so expensive. Leifur sits opposite Hallgrímskirkja church in Reykjavík and it's beautiful. Leifur is in a prime...More
6 of us stayed here for 3 nights as part of an Icelandair package. Absolutely ideal.
Opposite the modern cathedral and at the top of a street with a good choice of restaurants.

Hello, I stayed in Reykjavik in November, 2013 and just got back from staying here in August, 2017. The coldest it got in November when I stayed was about the high during the day 51 degrees and about 31 degrees at night. The weather changes there so fast, it could be snowing one minute, then the sun comes out like it never snowed the next minute. The sun rises about 10:30 am and sets around 6:00 pm. The best thing to do is dress in layers. You'll have a great chance of seeing the "Northern Lights" this time of year. But I recommend planning on seeing them at the beginning of your trip in case the weather is not good and they cancel it for that night. In this event, they will move the Northern Lights tour to the next night, which is what happen to us and luckly we had one more night left. If you wait until your last night, you will loose out. It was amazing to see. This past trip I went to the "Ice Cave Glaciers". That is also amazing to see and a must do!
