“Great room, ignore the view”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We arrived very late at Hotel Kelttur but the staff was very helpful and friendly. We got a room overlooking the construction site from next door but we were not disturbed by noises in the morning. The room was clean and good looking in its simplicity. The bed was great and comfortable. Breakfast was OK but it might get boring after a couple of days.
All in all this hotel was a great experience, but take notice that it is located about 30 minutes walk from the city center.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for rooms that don't overlook the construction site.

Had been on a ring road tour for the previous 6 nights. This hotel for the most part WAS a hotel. But the area it is in (not its fault) was very depressing. Never have I seen such filthy windows (hotel) on the ground level. Reception booked us in and said though room was 400 number it was really on 3. So, went to 3. House cleaning was in the area as we searched and she laughed and sent us to 4. Room was spacious and clean. Windows up there were clean, BTW! Have no idea about breakfast since we had to leave well before theirs opened ... very late, actually. Smoking outside on the sidewalk! Expected but not one place for a butt except the street curb. Reception during the evening and before dawn was friendly and helpful.

Bright room, charming in its simplicity. Unfortunately looks out over a major construction project currently happening behind the building. So close in fact that the support for one of the cranes rose within feet of our window. Not sure how high this project will ultimately rise and what it will do to the view which would otherwise look out over lower neighboring buildings into the fjiord.

Stayed here at the start of the year and thought hotel was great. The room we were given far surpassed my expectation and I even thought we had been upgraded by accident. Staff were friendly, hotel was clean and comfortable. Good location and able to walk to centre. Wifi only available downstairs in communal area and breakfast was a bit simple but didnt go hungry and would happily stay here again.

Got to the hotel and was given a family room at no extra cost. It was lovely and really spacious.
Hotel was clean and all of the staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfasts was simple but plentiful. The hotel is about a 10-15min walk to the centre of Reykjavik and good for us because we had hired a car so got free parking at a nearby car park. Would recommend to anyone.

We stayed here between christmas and New year 2014. Hotel is great, modern, welcoming, good reception staff who will organise tours and trips (whales, northern lights etc). Bar and breakfast downstairs. Bar, every evening happy hour, "Polar beer" for just a couple of quid a pint. Not bad and tastes good. Breakfast is a mix of everything, but plenty and does the job.
The room was stunning, with views over the bay, but we did pay to upgrade. Wall to wall windows on one side, fantastic. Beds were 2 singles, next to each other was perfectly line. Nice big bathroom. Room clean, spacious and had a safe there too.
It's a 10-15 min walk to the main restaurants and sights, but don't let that detract from it, a great place to stay.
Iceland itself....well, overpriced, surprisingly unfriendly and not that much happening. This may have been the time of year though....there were whale tours, although choppy would not be the word....the northern lights tours.....questionable, they have a couple of sites you can go to, along with dozens of other coaches and you just wait......and wait......and wait.....personal tours people had more success with.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the superior ones, views are worth it.

Pros: Staff and bar.
Cons: Noise levels from construction. Room could use some art or photos.
Location: Good location. Short walk to main shopping/restaurant area.
While the staff at the hotel were excellent and the room was comfortable, if spartan, the ongoing construction at the hotel ruined the view and was loud. The hotel is being expanded and is also surrounded by other construction projects. I advise staying elsewhere until construction is complete.
