Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Reykjavik
Ranked #30 of 54 Hotels in Reykjavik
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in November 2013 and it was fine. The hotel is in a wonderful central location, close walking distance to everywhere you want to be. The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous.

The rooms are modern with dark wood and flat screen tvs. The bathrooms while fine, are hardly modern or breathtaking.

Overall the hotel was quiet and we didn't experience any noise from the nearby bars.

The famous Icelandic hotdog stand is right next door to the hotel...a must try!

Overall a clean, safe, affordable hotel in a great location. Location, location, location!

We could not fault our stay here. We asked for a quiet room and 510 was really good. The location is perfect for walking around the centre....the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff on the front desk are exceptional...very helpful with all requests for help and advice.

You can't beat the location of this hotel in Reykjavik. It is smack in the middle of downtown and in walking distance to everything you would want to do. While this is a positive for the hotel, it does get extremely loud on weekends as people part all night into the morning, so if you are trying to get a good night sleep on a weekend there, I would bring a good pair of earplugs. Besides the noise (which is going to be a problem at any hotel downtown), everything else is fantastic.

We stayed there on the first and last nights of our trip around the entire country and both times we checked in they upgraded our room to a junior suite for free. The rooms are very modern and funny enough to say, but it was definitely the best shower we had during our trip. Also don't forget to hit up the world famous hot dog stand right across the street from the hotel, you won't be disappointed. I probably had 8 hot dogs during my 2 days there. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel was located in the quaint area of the city, where you want to be when you visit Reykjavik. It is European chic, with a helpful and friendly staff and an interesting, if small, lobby. The rooms were very clean, modern, and stylishly turned out. I was visiting there with a girlfriend of mine who flew in from another country, and the room was very spacious (even with two double beds in the room).

First time in Reykjavik so wanted the hotel to be centrally located with good access.The Radisson ticked all the boxes, right by the harbour front within walking distance of some very nice restaurants,the main shopping area is also only a 5 minute walk from the hotel.Accommodation was very good nice clean rooms lots of space and the free WIFI is available throughout the hotel not just in the lobby as in some hotels.
Staff very friendly and helpful,did not dine the restaurant but seemed busy most nights.Our booking included breakfast which was excellent value with lots of variety catering for all taste.A small but well equipped gym was an added bonus.Nice lounge bar area with good service staying open until midnight.Without question my wife and I would happily stay here again.

No problems at all with this stay at this hotel. Breakfast has everything under the sun from rice cakes to full English. Really well situated for sightseeing. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Room was great very spacious and set out well. There is noise on weekends from the local pubs but what else would you expect staying in a city centre hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor

Our son got to the hotel a few hours before we did. We asked him, "how's the hotel". He summed it up in one word. Fine. The location is perfect, the hotel is clean, the staff was accommodating but not as friendly as people we encountered elsewhere in Reykjavik. If you stay ask for a room that doesn't face the infamous hot dog stand. It is very noisy Friday and Saturday night
