This is the second time that I've stayed at Hotel Fron in four months! The fact that I returned says alot about this hotel. The first I came with a friend of mine and we stayed in one of the rooms at the front of the hotel with a small balcony. The room was spacious and clean and the staff were brilliant. My only concern was that there seemed to be a club or bar close by which could get nosy during the nights (and the Icelandic people know how to party!!)
But on return, myself and my boyfriend stayed in a studio apartment which is located in a building just behind the main block which was very quiet! Ideally located, the room was big and clean and the double bed was very comfortable. I had emailed the hotel to say it was my boyfriends birthday and to see if they could put a few beers Into the room for him. They did this no problems, no hassle. 6 pack of beer and two small balloons! Perfect! It cost nearly £30 (But that's Iceland!)
The breakfast is well stocked up with all your general continental dishes and meats and the staff make a good conscious effort to keep the area full during breakfast. It's not a big dinning area (but it's not a big hotel!) so it can get busy during breakfast. I would suggest getting there early OR just before breakfast finishes as these are the quieter times.
The room was cleaned every day, fresh lining, clean bins and fresh towels. The location is ideal. It's situated right in the high street of Reykjavik. Perfect. Any trips or tours you take will normally pick you up from the lobby of the hotel and if you need to book trips the hotel can help you with this also!
One morning we needed a taxi and the hotel was able to book this for us no problem. No stress. Checking out at 03:30 was a breeze, the lady behind the counter was brilliant and after a check hand over of the room keys we were then offered to help our self to some breakfast and coffee! (Even at 03:30am!!)
