I stayed here for 4 nights and though the room was rather dated, I generally enjoyed my stay. The service from the staff was beyond exceptional, they were very kind and always willing to advise on where to eat and what to see, the food (breakfast) was really the only let down. The location is just brilliant, literally 5 minutes...

We stayed for 5 nights and had one of the refurbished 'apartment' type rooms. It was lovely. Lots of space. The only downside was there was no draws or cupboards but there was a clothes rail so we managed to fit everything on 8 coat hangers and on the shelf below it. The bathroom was nice. Yes the water smells...

Internet net in room is awful. Rug and bathroom fixtures are old and require replacement. Breakfast is not to bad. Location seems good. Elevator is old and slow. Room had a small tv old water pot and old hair dryer. I asked for Another room but they seemed anoyed and finally said no other rooms open

The FossHotel Baron was excellent. The beds were comfy and the view from the room over the water was amazing! The breakfast is too notch and the food is amazing! The chocolate croissants are to die for and the waffles are the best waffles I've ever had. The wifi goes in and out which is hard being from America and...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was basic but perfectly clean and adequate for our 4 day trip. Breakfasts were truly excellent and even provided for our 4am departure. Plenty of restaurants around but it is not a cheap country!

I stayed there for two nights, in the beginning and at the end of my trip, in two different rooms; I liked both. Both small, clean, pretty basic with different ambiance. There are no toiletries other than a bottle of soap, but there was a hairdryer in both rooms. Tap water in Reykjavik is perfectly drinkable, just keep empty bottle...

The hotel is fairly basic, but this is common of most places in Iceland. Rooms and very clean and tidy, breakfast is brilliant with lots of choice on a buffet basis. Great location too, only a 2 minute walk into the Main Street. Local convenience shop just behind it which is helpful. Staff are helpful, would stay again.

Central location and helpful reception staff. Our room was the opposite of that on the website and definitely due for renovation. It was clean and the beds were comfortable but the lighting was awful and we struggled for a hot shower. Breakfast was excellent and mostly plentiful, but the doors shut on time! As everything in Iceland is expensive, a...

This has got to be one of the worst I've stayed at in recent times. This hotel was booked by our travel agent as we were joining a tour of Iceland. We checked out the photos of the hotel and it did not look too bad. The photo showed the front facade and the restaurant which had been renovated. But...

The Foss Hotel Baron is great value for money, the room was basic but clean and we were rarely in the room as we had a packed itinerary for the trip. They appeared to be renovating it while we were there. Staff at reception were helpful and friendly. All the major attractions of Reykjavik were nearby including Sun voyager, Harpa...
