“Good location and very nice place.”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Spent a couple nights at Fosshotel Lind. The location was very good and we were very pleased with the service from the reception, they helped us booking sine trips. Golden circle is very high recommended. Rooms are quite nice and the bed was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was excellent. If I am back to Reykjavik I will be again in this hotel. Thanks for a nice stay.

We have just returned from a 4 day trip to Iceland and stayed at the Lind. The food was 1st class and all the staff were friendly,happy and helpful. The rooms are clean,and tidy. large enough for for a few days and had everything you needed.The location was excellent close to the amenities yet just far enough away to be quiet. All in all very good value for money.

Spent a week in Reykjavik, and stayed at Fosshotel Lind. Had an excellent experience, better then I expected. Not a fancy hotel, but it has everything you need. First rate staff, professional, friendly and very helpful, they would go above and beyond to meet your needs and requests - kudos to Estanis and Franja, way to go guys!! Good buffet style breakfast - plenty of everything, proteins, fruit, pastries, cereal, cheeses, etc. Room was rather on small side, but very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. Not too many choices when it comes to TV channels, but let's be serious: who's going to Iceland to watch TV? Excellent location, close to everything you need, restaurants, bars, shopping. Overall an excellent experience, and yes, I would stay there again without hesitation. Only one disappointment: wasn't able to see Northern Lights, but I'll be back in March, and guess where I'll be staying? Fosshotel Lind!

We stayed towards the end of October and were really pleased to find that it was in a great location, just round the corner from the main shopping street with all of the bars and restaurants. It was quiet, clean and the staff were really helpful, and the bed was really comfortable. We will definitely go back and stay there again.

Having been to Reykjavik before, (see. I can spell it)! I feel that there isn't really luxury around. The harsh conditions make the people tough! You have to be tough to survive the hotel room! Luxury it is not! The little cupboard could hardly accommodate my one change of outfit. And the pitiful excuse of a breakfast !! Terrible! But having said all that, the location was fine and we could hoof it to the centre of town. Not close but near enough to walk. The hot water is from the underground spring, but agh! The smell!

I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent stay and I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed our location.

It is to bad you didn’t enjoy your room; I wish you would have talked to us about it during your stay.

Regarding luxury, we are a standard 3 star hotel with standard rooms that varies from single, twin, double and triple rooms. We also do have a suite for those who want more space. The reception would have been happy to assist you with finding a room that fits your needs and likings.

I will assure you that we do have luxury in Iceland. If you are looking for more luxury then within our hotel chain we have a 4 star hotel very close to ours, Grand hotel Reykjavik. If you would like to stay completely in the city center we also do have another option, Hotel Reykjavik Centrum.

I am very sorry that you did not like our breakfast. For other viewers I will assure you that we are very proud of our big breakfast buffet that offers various of options like make your own waffles, hot options, freshly baked breads and sweets, yoghurt, cereals, meat, fresh fruits, vegetable, herring, various of hot and cold drinks and much more. All included in your room rate.

Regarding the sulphur smell of the water. It is true that the hot water in Iceland is mainly heated geothermally and because of that it smells of sulphur. The water is very clean, pure and healty for your body. I can assure you that it is only the hot water, if you turn on the cold water from the taps it is excellent to drink and very clean :)

I hope you enjoyed your stay Iceland and had a great experiance!

Thank you and hope to see you again in Fosshótel Lind.

Best regards,
Erna Dís

The hotel had everything we needed. Staff very helpful. WIFI internet access free and a good signal in the rooms we stayed in. Breakfast was a self service buffet style with omelette sausage beans, ham, fruit and all the usual stuff which was really nice. Hotel situated just minutes from the main street which was great. The rooms are pleasant enough.

I had my pleasure to stay in Fosshotel Lind whilst traveling in Iceland. Very nice and cozy rooms, top-notch breakfast and especially amusing working staff are the things to be pointed out. I was so delighted talking to one of them, a very handsome and helpful young man, who helped me with all the information I needed back then. I didn't memorise his name, but remember his Catalan accent.
To wrap it up - Fosshotel Lind, place to feel relaxed and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask the staff, they won't let you down.
