“Great Location”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

The holt hotel is a touch if class within walking distance of the hub of Reykjavik . The rooms are very comfortable and the art work is amazing. The lounge bar is sophisticated and warm. On the down the staff did not really reflect the legendary Icelandic charm and were the only negative of this hotel .

Dear Olympian1981.

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion. It is, however, the first time in my 6 years here that a guest is unhappy with the service team in the hotel. I would really love to discuss this with you and find out where you found us lacking. If we do not react to service failures, we need to do something else, that is for sure. If you could please contact me through the management feature of our live chat on our homepage, I would greatly appreciate that.

Warm regards,
Snorri

We stayed one night in this hotel in November 2013. Check-in was efficient and staff were helpful.

The hotel is situated in a residential street off the main tourist area. However, it is only 5 mins walk from the main shopping street and the tourist attractions - we had no problems getting around on foot.

The hotel room was clean and tidy. Reasonable size and good value, bearing in mind that Iceland is pretty expensive. We found that the hotel was quiet at night and got a good night's sleep. The bathroom has the usual toiletries and also a very convenient washing line which was useful to dry wet clothes. The WiFi was free and we had no issues with speed.

We ate dinner in the hotel. The food was very nice, although we felt that it was a little overpriced compared to other restaurants we ate it whilst in Iceland. If we had been spending more time in Reykjavik we would probably have found somewhere else to eat. We also ate breakfast in the hotel, and found a good breakfast buffet is served which cost approx. €15 each.

I would be happy to stay in this hotel again.

We spent 4 nights here and it was very comfortable, lovely decor, full of original paintings. Breakfast was worth having as it was reasonably priced, self-service. Try and get a fourth floor balcony room if you can as these have good views over Reykjavik. Reception staff very helpful, booking tours, restaurants etc.

We got this hotel as part of a package deal. It was simple, but nice and clean. Staff was absolutely amazing. Our flight got in from Denver before 6 a.m. and we arrived at the hotel at about 7:15 a.m. and we were allowed to check in. That, for two very tired people, was the best. The hotel's location as central and close to the main shopping areas in downtown. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front, and the noise wasn't as bad as we'd expected, but if you don't l...

We decided to visit Iceland in November. After much searching I settled on Hotel Holt. It is located on a side street minutes from the main downtown shopping street, in my opinion an excellent location. The hotel is a 4 story 1970'ish building. A boring exterior but nice lobby with great art throughout. Room: One in our party had a single room, basic, small but clean. Our friends had a Jr. Suite, it had a small sitting area with dated furniture. We were upgraded to a suite which was nice and roomy. All of the rooms were very clean and functional. The rooms could use new furniture and an updating. The bed was comfortable and the room was quite. Service: Excellent, always a friendly smile and the front desk, staff were excellent assisting with tour arrangements and answering questions. When we arrived early in the morning tired, we were all offered complementary buffet breakfast which was a nice touch.

On one of our tours we picked up passengers at the Hilton, which was located in a business area of Reykjavik outside of the downtown area. We were all happy we choose a downtown hotel. The Holt is located in a much better area for restaurants, nightlife and shopping. A nice bakery was minutes from the hotel. Summary: An excellent hotel choice in a great city.

Room Tip: Jr. Suite and Suites were nice and functional.

Dear LMC_Canada.

Thank you for the lovely words on your stay with us. We certainly agree there are no better options than staying with us.

We are working hard at renovating the hotel and will take a big step in January when we close for a few weeks. I hope you will visit and enjoy the changes we will have made by then.

Returned home today after a four night break in Reykjavik staying at the Hotel Holt. Warm, friendly, very helpful (before departure and while here). Cozy bar, happy hour - worth trying the cocktail of the day. We were given a huge room with separate lounge and separate bathroom and toilet with shower facing the front of the hotel. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it always looked very smart. Our room might have been a little dated but was very comfortable, bath robes, tea and coffee making and wifi. I would recommend stating here, a great base to see some of this beautiful country. We will be back

Dear lizzy068.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I´m glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I can cheer you with the news that our renovations will take a big jump during January when we will close for 3 weeks to do as much as we can at once. A family business always takes longer to renovate but we´re getting there.

I hope to see you again at Hotel Holt.
