Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura

Reviewed 1 July 2014

We were booked in this hotel via our travel agency in a package deal, so we didn't know what to expect. The rooms and bathrooms were quite small - not a 4 star standard, but clean and quiet. We didn't mind, as we didn't spend much time at the hotel. The lobby was nicely designed, there were some wooden statues standing there, and a huge wall screen with nature images and nature sounds playing. A beautiful fireplace separated the lobby from the restaurant area. The meals were good and the service as well. You could feel a little bit like home. The only inconvenient was the distance - the hotel was quite far from the center town. but the hotel offered a free bus pass. Unfortunately the bus schedule was twice an hour, you were faster by foot. Maybe not the best choice hotel, but it was not bad at all afterall.

We stayed at the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura as part of a deal with Icelandair, so we weren't sure what to expect. It turns out that it was a solid choice. The hotel is across the street from Perlan ("The Pearl"). It sits on the rear-facing side, with a very pleasant trail up to the Perlan, with lots of views along the way. If you enjoy walking, the city is approximately 20 minutes away on foot. For the rainy days, or those days when we didn't feel like walking, we took advantage of the free bus pass offered by the hotel. The bus pass was valid for the public transportation system, which was excellent - otherwise it would have cost 350 ISK each way for each of us. By walking in to the city, we discovered several neat places that we otherwise may have missed.
Also, when we booked our day excursions, there was pickup and drop off directly at the hotel, which was very convenient.
The rooms are a decent size by European standards - I've paid more for less in other places. Our room had a nice view of the Pearl. The restaurant had good food, and the prices were reasonable by hotel standards and on par with what you would expect to pay in town.
We would definitely stay there again. Though there was a domestic airport adjacent to the property, the only time we heard any noise from it was when we were walking next to it outside.

Rooms small, but fine. Breakfast good, not very big. Lunch good. A 20-30 min walk to center. Small domestic airport next door, not a problem at night. Nice path up to the Pearl viewpoint, otherwise not a very nice aera. Next time I would like to stay at the countryside!

Firstly Iceland is a "must see" during anyone's lifetime. The unique landscape and the fact that its one of the worlds newest countries in terms land formation, meeting of the american and european plates and other unique formations means that its pretty unmissable as a destination...but just to see that uniqueness. Also the fact that iceland is 90% plus geothermic energy means that it will be among the cleanest air you will ever breath. There is hardly any dust on any windows because they don't depend much on fossil fuel. We felt healthier just being there. Try and use Geotours, the spanish guide was fantastic.

Natura is ok. Its certainly not cheap and its sadly about a 20 min walk from Reykavik and about a 8 min (infrequent) bus ride from the city centre. The city centre itself is hardly big...just an average UK high street to be honest. There aren't that many shops and they are all ridiculously expensive as is food and the bars. We stupidly thought we would try the gay bar there and it was £30 for 2 drinks and pretty rubbish so we left after our first drink. Whoever tries to sell you iceland as a clubbing destination is talking rubbish. It really isn't a "young people" city at all. Go there for eco-tourism but not clubbing or dining experiences. The cost of eating and drinking out is astronomical so budget well.

Anyway back to Natura...we had a room overlooking the airport which was a bit disappointing. Planes are extremely infrequent so its not really a problem. Room size was perfectly adequate and we did have access to the free lounge which meant you could get coffees (if you could work the machine out - no milk btw) and some nice snacks and cookies. I think we struggled with the TV a bit as english isn't necessarily their biggest market.

We were slightly disappointed with the spa to be honest. Over the easter bank holiday you would expect them to open it up to late but it was shut for most of the time. I specifically paid for a hotel with a spa as me and my boyfriend as we wanted to have treatments but it was mostly closed during the evening and that was the only time we could have done as we were on tours during the day. Don't specifically book easter weekends if I were you.


There was also a small gym but weirdly none of the brochures (nor the staff) talk about it much...I only found it because I was wandering around the hotel!

The on site restaurant is ok...does a reasonable set meal (expensive by UK standards for what it is but affordable). We went out for a cheap burger which I hate which tells you how expensive it is there.

All in all a must place to visit...but try to get one of the hostels or small hotels right smack bang in the centre. Having said that there are some nice walks around, grab a coffee at the large dome building you can see from the hotel...free refills as well.

Room Tip: try to get a room NOT on the same side as the airport but with a view of the domed restuarant

This hotel is clean and nice, the restaurants are great as well. We stayed here twice in our trip, once at the beginning and then again at end, before flying back to the United States. The first room we stayed in was extremely small, it was hard to get ready in the bathroom the next morning, but I managed. On the second stay here we upgraded rooms and were pleased with the huge size different. The second room also had a sitting area, which was a bonus. The hotel was located a little bit too far from the city of Reykjavik and requires a taxi ride or car rental - we did both. It was fun to rent a car and explore the city on our on. We would stay here again, but I would prefer staying at another hotel closer to all the action, if I had a choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upgrade if you don't care for tight quarters and rent a car to explore city indep...

We had the pleasure of staying here as part of a package booked through Icelandair. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the lobby, it is so modern and clean. The wooden sculptures adding such an interest, sometime even forgetting they are not real people. Our room was simple, but more than adequate. The best part - no carpet, wood floors throughout. The staff was outstanding, the breakfast buffet very good with so many items to choose from. Free bus passes were included which was great, the bus stop right across the street and a very short bus ride to downtown. Booking this trip was a trust walk, we did not have to worry, it was great.

Room Tip: We were satisfied with our room, really didn't need an upgrade.

Dear traveler

Thank you for giving us such a positive review and we are very pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. The wooden sculptures surely are amazing and you must visit our other Icelandair Hotels since there are sculptures to be found in all of our hotels with each and every sculpture describing the characteristics of the hotel that it’s located at.

Thank you again for recommending us to other readers and I will make sure to pass your compliments on to our staff. Hopefully they will see you again soon.

Warm regards,
Trausti Karlsson

Booked this package as part of an offer through Icelandair, which included air/taxes, 3 nights hotel, Golden Circle Tour, breakfast upon arrival, and a pass to the pool/health spa. Upon arrival, we didn't know what to expect as it looks like an old office building circa 1980's Russia. But it's actually quite cute once you get inside. Very kitschy decore with all the wooden people and sheep. Check-in was highly efficient considering they had an entire busload to get through, people who had just arrived on an over-night trans-Atlantic flight and were very very tired.

Luckily I had emailed the hotel beforehand and our rooms were ready upon check-in; we dropped off our stuff and headed down for our buffet breakfast before the crowd descended. Interesting choices... Would definitely not have paid $25pp for baked beans, some weird little petrified cocktail sausages, some cakes, and some skyr. The skyr- Icelandic yogurt is fantastic though! Be sure to try it.

Rooms were compact but immaculate. We looked out over the domestic airport and the Pearlan, so had a pretty decent view over-all.

Yes, the hotel is not close to town, but the free bus passes were great- just have to leave a deposit that they return when you hand the pass back in. They even give you the schedule which makes it easy. The bus drivers are great too, making sure you get on the "right" #19 to go back to the hotel, as there are two.

The Soley Natura Spa was lovely. The soak in the thermal pool was perfect after sitting for hours on a long flight. Not sure why they make you pay to use it. Should be included, especially considering the hotel is quite isolated.

We ate at the onsite restaurant Satt for dinner twice only out of necessity. Service is slow to terrible. Staff don't even try. But the fish entrée was excellent, as was their hot chocolate. Prices are high, but they are pretty much everywhere in Iceland.

We were lucky enough to take advantage of their Movie Night held in the theatre. It was quite neat to watch the subtitled movie, which was actually pretty good. There wasn't any popcorn as advertised though, and the pillows/blankets smelled so bad/stale we had to throw them on the floor. It was a nice gesture regardless.

Not sure if I'd stay here again. May choose somewhere more central if I ever return, but I'd recommend it for sure as over-all we had a nice stay

Dear traveler

I am glad to see that you had a great stay with us and that check-in was efficient and comfortable for you. I however have to apologize for the slow service that you experienced at our restaurant. I will make sure to pass your complain along to our restaurant manager who will take necessary actions. I will also make sure to notify the general manager about the blankets and pillows in the cinema room, we never get complains about our cinema experience so something must have gone wrong on that particular night. I apologize for that but at the same time would like to thank you for notifying us so that we can take appropriate actions.

I am glad to see that overall you had a good stay with us and that you were able to make use of our bus pass, the spa etc. Hopefully you will stay with us again sometime in the future and if you do I advise you to upgrade to a deluxe room for an even greater experience.

Warm regards,
Trausti Karlsson
