When we arrived early Friday evening the hotel was buzzing and had a great vibe to it. A former paint factory, its decor reflected this with an eclectic mix of furnishings. Rooms are small but perfectly big enough, clean and comfortable. Our room was on the road side which is quite noisy but earplugs soon sort that out! There was a great choice for breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had duty free wine and were able to get an ice bucket, ice and glasses from the bar without any bother.
The location is great with just a short walk to restaurants, bars and shops. The Icelandic fish and chip shop was excellent and quite reasonable. Geysir bistro was also very good. The Laundromat cafe had a nice atmosphere and a good place to people watch. Get a window table between 5-6pm and watch as everyone rushes to the liquor store opposite.
We did a Golden Circle trip and snow mobiling with Mountain Taxis which was fantastic. The Volcano House was worth a visit for a short film about the volcanic eruptions. We also enyoyed the Blue Lagoon. We were unlucky with the northern lights and only saw a small showing but it didn't affect our trip to Iceland as we had a great time.
Would thoroughly recommend Iceland and Reykjavik Marina Hotel.
