Location - Smack in the center of it all

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2007

Hotel Fron is right in the heart of Reykjavik on Laugavegur. Surrounded by cool resturants (Vor is right next door), great bars (Sirkus is sort of across the street down an alley), fancy shops, you're within walking distance of nearly everything. The family that runs Hotel Fron were kind and attentive - they let me check out after their 11am deadline so that I could make a last run through of all the museums. I travelled solo and stayed in a single room on the 2nd floor facing the back courtyard. The room was tiny but comfortable - really, who's going to hang out in their hotel room when they're in Iceland??? The hotel also has apartments with kitchens, but I didn't stay in one of these. The decor of the hotel lobby and rooms was cool Scandanavian-minimalistic chic, with black narrow tiles in the bathroom and a raised glass shower. An awesome hotel - I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Unique Quality: Location, location, location.

Directions: On Laugavegur near where Klapparstigur intersects.

I asked for a good rate via email (Edmund was the guy I was emailing) and was able to negotiate the price down just a tad from 7400 Kr to 7000 Kr per night for four nights in the off-season. I doubt you'll be able to get much cheaper for a comparable room in the center of Reykjavik. That's still much more than I'm used to spending on lodging, but hey, this is Reykjavik, so that's not too bad.

Overall, I was very pleased with the cleanliness, service, knowledge of the staff, the location, and the comfort of the room. Check out the website for more pictures and for the email address. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone considering staying in Reykjavic. Having a kitchenette in the room would be a big bonus for a group traveling here to do some weekend partying, so keep Hotel Fron in mind.

Directions: Laugavegur & Klapparstigur
