“very nice hotel”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

very nice hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff! Rooms were very pleasant. Breakfast was delicious. Only downside was the location was away from the center of town, but this was minor as it was a relatively short walk to restaurants and shops.

This hotel looks boring from the outside and you are not sure what it will be like. I was very pleased once inside. It has dark panelled walls and antique furniture and leather chairs and sofas in the reception rooms. My hotel room was bright and airy of a good size with a nice comfy bed. A great location to walk to the main shopping and eating areas of the city. The breakfast buffet had a lovely selection. The receptionists couldn't be more helpful and polite than they were. The SkyBus pick up back to the main airport worked like clockwork. On the expensive side but with a real feeling of quality.

This is a typical European hotel. It is not updated by US standards. However, our room was nice and the staff very accommodating. It is a short walk to the main areas of the town. I would recommend this hotel,

Hotel Holt for one night provided all that I could ask for. Cordial, helpful staff, clean and comfortable room, exceptional hotel art collection displayed throughout the hotel and very good restaurant in the lobby. A neat transition between Atlantic Salmon fishing and the flight home.

The hotel staff is most gracious. The guests every need and question immediately brought a response. Location is within a residential neighborhood and only a short walk to old town, wharf and cathedral. Room is perfectly functional, designed in the Scandinavian minimalist style. Can't recommend this hotel more highly!

Room Tip: Rooms are identical. A little more noise facing street if windows are left open.

I have stayed at the Holt three times now, on an annual fishing expedition, every time i have stayed it has been excellent, the staff are very knowledgeable of all the tourist bits, and the Hotel is ideally located for the main Town without the noise etc, very good Breakfast. nothing any trouble.

Hotel Holt is located perhaps three blocks up from the lake in the center of town and about the same distance from the major shopping street. What sets Hotel Holt appart from other hotels is that its founder was a major collector of Icelandic art, and the art hangs on every wall in the hotel, including all the guest rooms. It also has a fine restaurant and a number of meeting rooms. The staff are very competent and helpful. Needless to say, like most Icelanders, they all speak good English. We've stayed there annually for about 20 years and have no thoughts about moving elsewhere.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street have the best view but can be a bit noisy. Junior suites provide a living room...
