“Great hotel - good atmosphere, great food, helpful staff”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

We stayed here in February as part of icelandair holiday and very pleased we upgraded to this hotel. The room was a decent size with a great view over Reykjavik and the mountains.
We had room service one night and ate in the bistro another night, the food is great (menu is not large), and not too expensive, for a 2-course meal with an alcoholic drink each came to ~£50 for 2 people. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the hotel even has a happy hour between 5-7pm with all drinks half price! The only down side is that the hotel is a 20 minute walk to the town centre - but it is a nice and easy walk, but the hotel does offer free shuttle bus and different times in the morning and evening.

Will definitly be going back again!

This is my second stay at this hip hotel. The decor is crisp and modern. The breakfast served buffet style is top notch. Lots of local fare on the menue along with European style breakfast offerings. True. The hotel is not near the heart of the city of Reykhavik. One has to cab it. i was luck to have a driver. Whe I did need to use the hotel shuttle bus, it did not take me to where I wanted to go. This service needs to be expanded since this is a city with a 24 hour vibe. I liked the wooden floor in the room, the green-friendly lighting in the halls and in my room. This is not your American style hotel with tons of space. So think simplicty and economy of space when booking. The front desk staff were helpful and they did exchange money. The tour desk in the hotel was managed by a delightful woman who gave great local advice on day trips. This was helpful. I like the chairs in the lounge. Sad that I had a room with no waterview on my first stay.................Lesson learned. Ask for a water view--not a a parking lot view of an office supply store. All and all--this is the most modern hotel in Iceland. I will return!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view room.

We had a great experience at the Nordica overall. Our room was just what we needed - a base to chill out in during a busy few days of seeing Reykjavik plus a couple of trips out of the city. The location is ok, it's a good 15 min walk along a main road into city centre though. However, we made use of the hotel's free shuttle bus service, which runs in the morning and evening. A taxi was under £10.

We treated ourselves one night to eating in the hotel restaurant - food was excellent and not as expensive as I feared! Overall actually Iceland, with a devalued Kroner, was mre affordable hen expected. A beer was typically £5-6, although many bars do half price happy hour deals, which are worth taking advantage of!

Staff are very polite and unobtrusive, in the Icelandic way, but happy to talk if you iniditiate it. One annoyance was not having to ask twice to get non feather bedding, and late one evening being unable o get replacement coffe making supplies.

Overall though, a very classy hotel, in a handy enough spot. I would stay again, although next time I may try to get somewhere more central.

I stayed here in January with an icelandair package. I really liked the hotel although I would describe it as a business hotel. But it was very clean and the room was updated and had everything I needed. It is a long way from the center of town but the shuttle runs occasionally or we just took a taxi. Some of the tours we took picked up at the hotel and on the way back we were the first stop. We ate at both the bistro and the Vox restaurant one night. It was pricey but perhaps not that much more if you consider taking a taxi to and from town. There is a 7/11 type store just around the corner and I noticed a pharmacy next door. The do provide a hot pot in the room with instant coffee and teas. I always bring Starbucks via with me so this was a welcome addition. As part of the package we were given one pass to the spa. Nothing to write home about. It was crowded with locals who use it as their health club.

The hotel is adequate ,it's clean,the staff is friendly and helpful. We upgraded to the top floor. The view was nice but there was absolutely no place to put your clothes. There was a cabinet were you could hang a few things,and two very small draws. We had to live out of out of our suitcases. I hate that. The bed was two twins pushed together.the location was about a 15 minute walk to the downtown area.

We stayed here in November as part of an Iceland Air package tour. On arrival we asked how much an upgrade was to the Exec Floor, and decided as it included entrance to the Exec lounge it was worth it for us. We were given a stunning room on the 9th floor right at the end of the corridor, which had an extra panel of window so you could see Reykjavik town and the mountains/sea. The room was exceptionally clean and the daily maid service was excellent. Comfy bed. Great pillow selection. Lots of space.

Location
This hotel is a little out-of-town, but we actually really enjoyed the walks and it is only about 20 minutes away.

Food
We mainly ate in the Exec Lounge where breakfast and evening snacks (very varied and regularly replenished) are served, but we did eat at Vox on our last night. Atmosphere was good, open kitchen nice to see and old excellent. A little pricey, but no more so that eating in a good restaurant in the uk.

Exec lounge
Well worth the price, apart from the room upgrade, you get breakfast and supper, free alcoholic drinks for a couple of hours in the evening and the lounge is in an elevated position with great views across the bay and of the Yoko Ono tower. Also free soft drinks, teas and coffees thought the day.

Hotel
Free wi-fi throughout. Large coved smoking terrace. Excellent concierge and trip booking service.

Spa
Outside hot tub and sauna nice. Steam rooms not working. Complimentary back massage in the hot tub welcome, but felt a little put off by a gentleman who was known to the staff, who insisted on following you around. Would not have payed to use the spa (was included as part of the Exec package).

All in all a great stay. Would recommend.
