We chose the Hotel Klettur with our Icelandair package. Upon arriving, we was transferred to the hotel, and checked in without any hassle. The rooms were very modern, and very spacious. The room comes with TV, and has a good selection of English channels. The hotel offers free wifi, but this does play up, and does not carry a good reception.

The bar downstairs, is very suave, and presentable, and the staff are very knowledgeable, and like to have a chat.

The breakfast could be improved, as there is not a lot on offer, and one small toaster does not cater for a lot of people.

The location of the hotel is brilliant, which is a 5 minute walk away from the centre of Reykjavik, and a 5 minute walk from the docks.

I would recommend going to the Blue Lagoon, and the Golden Circle, and this tour can be booked online for cheaper before going. The whale watching & Northern lights can be a bit hit and miss with the weather, but is worth doing. Just make sure you take a sea sickness pill beforehand!

For what you get with the package deal from Icelandair, you can't really groan about what you get, and for me this hotel is worth a stay.

Hotel Klettur is pretty close to downtown Reykjavik and is easy to get to. If you're from the UK, think along the lines of a Premier Inn or Travelodge. The rooms are clean and fairly modern, the beds are comfortable, they're a good size, and the en-suites are exactly what you'd expect: clean and functional.

Breakfast is continental style, and fairly basic, but plenty of it.

I'd happily stay here again, but if you want a fancy hotel experience, this will probably not suit you. However, if you need a safe, clean, modern room and a good breakfast before going off to explore this fantastic country, you won't go wrong with this place.

Also, I can highly recommend renting a car (4x4 if you can stretch that far). Iceland is very easy to get around and all of the sights I wanted to see were easily accessible by car, including the Golden Circle, the unpronounceable volcano that caused all that trouble in 2011, and the glaciers.

I used http://iceland.carrentals.is/ to find a reasonably priced car.

Also, if you plan to go exploring some of the more remote areas, the Icelandic rescue service make an app available for smartphone users which allows you to log your journey plan and can be downloaded here: http://www.safetravel.is/

Safe travels, and I hope you have a wonderful time.

Room Tip: If you're going in the winter months, I wouldn't bother paying extra for a room with a view, unless you intend to be in it until after 10ish in the morning or will be back before 4ish in the afternoon, because it's dark.

Just spent 3 nights at this hotel on a Northern Lights special offer weekend. The hotel was very clean and tidy and quite adequate for our needs. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location ideal, being a mere 5 minute walk to the centre of town. On the downside we found the room to be uncomfortably hot, but rectified this by turning off the underfloor heating and leaving the window open. The washbasin in the shower room is very small and the mixer tap is right in the centre, making it difficult to splash water on the face. There was only one small shelf so we had to put toiletries on the floor. We would certainly stay at this hotel if we returned to Iceland but only if we could book rooms at the rear of the building and maybe a couple of floors higher up. Opposite the Klettur is a building advertised as a Guest House and Apartments. Sadly the residents there have no consideration for their neighbours and we were frequently woken up by the noise they created into the early hours of the morning. If asked what the hotel could do to improve, I would recommend having tea/coffee making facilities available in the rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the rear and ideally floors 4 or 5.

This is a great hotel for a break in the city. Perfect location in walking distance of the main sights. Rooms clean and warm. The beds perfectly comfortable after a cold day out seeing the sights. And the staff are 5 star. Nothing too much trouble. Would definitely stay here again if I am lucky enough to go back.

the breakfast is shocking and after the first day we didn't bother again even though we had paid for it. the room is noisy if you are on the ground floor, if anyone in the hotel has a shower or either flushes the toilet you will be able to hear it loudly. only one member of the hotel staff seems to care other than that they are too busy concerning themselves with YouTube or Facebook to care or even crack a smile. northern lights are a bit of a let down and after an hour of searching we only saw what looked to be a cloud which they passed off as a successful sighting and the whale watching is also a major disappointment. the only saving grace on this trip is the blue lagoon it really is as nice as it looks on the advert.
