    This is a great hotel. Loved the breakfast in the morning - it was included in our room rate - important to do this otherwise it is around €25 pp. We used the spa facilities onsite - great gym and jacuzzi. The rooms were a great size and good sized bathrooms. The only small thing i would say is the towels were tiny (but that is being picky!).

    we ate at the Grillio restaurant on the 8th floor - one of the best in Iceland and weren't disappointed. it was AMAZING - the seafood was phenominal!

    Hotel was close to the bus station and had frequent pick ups for day trips. Aroudn a 15-20 minute walk into town but easy to do and a pretty walk.

    definitely recommend it!

    Convenience and Luxury

    by

    If you've got money and want 4-star luxury in Reykjavík, Hotel Saga is a good choice. If you don't have so much money, you can sometimes get a discount from the hefty rack rate if you book online and pre-pay for the room. We did this and knocked our price down to a not-outrageous (by Reykjavik standards) US$260 for our final night in Iceland.

    The hotel's exterior and lobby were under renovation while we were there, but the interior spaces (not under renovation) were quite nice. Within the hotel itself there's a bank, a Reykjavík Excursions tour office (where you can book a bus to Keflavík Airport and/or the Blue Lagoon), a bar, a spa (with Jacuzzi), and two restaurants. We were fortunate enough to get a spacious 7th floor room with an excellent view of Reykjavik and the Municipal Airport.

    Amenities include everything you'd expect at a "4-star" hotel, from room service to a mini-bar to concierge service. We were pretty low-maintenance (which is a good thing, because all of the above cost extra).

    And speaking of costing extra, beware the convenient but pricey breakfast. It starts as early as 4AM, with "super breakfast" (including omelet bar, bacon, sausages, waffles, etc) starting at 7AM. It's a very nice spread, but it costs a whopping (even for Iceland) Kr 1600 per person. When we booked our room, we thought our breakfast was included, just as it was at Oslo Airport's Radisson SAS when we stayed there last year. Guess again...

    Unique Quality: - 4 Star, full-service hotel
    - Within walking distance of the Bus Station and Reykjavík Airport
    - Shuttle connection to Keflavík Airport bus
    - Two restaurants and spa on-site
    - Tour office on-site

    Directions: Just off of Hagatorg, 1 block off the Ring Road. About a 15-minute walk from the bus station and a 25-minute walk from Reykjavík Municipal Airport. You can get from Keflavik Airport to the hotel's doorstep with a "Flybus Plus" ticket (Kr 2500 one-way).

They have a wonderful buffet breakfast available from 4am to 10am (or noon-I forget which one).
very friendly employees and they allowed an early check in of 8am!

Quite a Saga!

by Bjorgvin about Radisson SAS Saga Hotel.

Radisson SAS Saga Hotel, located just a few minutes walk from the city centre near the University of Iceland. Nearby is an open-air swimming pool (with free access for hotel guests), the National Museum, National Library and the Nordic House. A modern, first-class establishment.

Radisson SAS Saga

by annk about RADISSON SAS SAGA

Expensive but so are most other things in Iceland.
Large rooms sort of minimalist looking with hardwood floors and wood furniture. Good views of the city and Perlan (another Reykjavik landmark)

A 10 minute walk to downtown, just minutes from the Pond (Tjornin), 15 minutes walk to the domestic air terminal, and about 5 minutes to the long distance bus line (BSI terminal). Buffet breakfast included in room price.

Fee to use gym facilities approximately $10 per day.

Nothing special

by Emile72 about Radisson SAS Saga Hotel

Stayed in this hotel in Reykjavik for one night. The building itself from the outside does not look that attractive. The lobby inside looks better already. Check-in did not go smoothly. I booked a business room, but got a standard room. I had to log in on the internet on my phone and show them their own website that a business room is different than a standard room. Only then they believed me. The business room was the same as the standard room, only you get slippers, free pay tv, a welcome gift (few chocolates) and breakfast is included. Rooms are very standard, but the beds really sleep well. Paid 22.000 ISKR, about 300USD for one night. Breakfast was a bit below average. All in all, ok, no real complaints, but nothing spectacular. If you are hungry and don't want to spend too much money, next to the hotel is a Shell station. They sell good hotdogs, nice pasta salads (filling) and other snacks and stuff. Nothing spectacular and very healthy, but for sure keeps you going.

the best of 2 worlds

by marielexoteria about Radisson SAS Saga

Mr. Sweden got a deal through his job and that's why we ended up here...and I'm glad we did! According to some guides and maps I've read (both in Sweden and in Iceland), this hotel is considered to be in the city center (perhaps because it's close to the National Museum of Iceland) but it doesn't have as much noise as one would expect in the city center because it's also close to a residential area and the University of Iceland.

The room: our room was on the 6th floor and had a nice view of the National Library, part of the residential area, Mount Esja and, if I turned my head to the right, Hallgrimskirkja. The bed was comfortable and big enough for Mr. Sweden (he's 6ft tall and has had problem in the past with some small beds), and we had 2 small and comfortable couches, a mini bar (that we didn't touch because the items there were expensive!), coffee/tea making facilities, an iron trouser and a safe. The bathroom had a small kit of soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion plus a hair dryer. We had both a bath tub and a shower.

The breakfast: breakfast is included in all the rates they have (unless otherwise stated) and it's served at Skrudur bistro between 4:30 and 10am (see my separate tip about it).

There was also an egg section where you could have a fried egg or an omelet.

The only 3 things I found to be somewhat bad are that (1) the pillows were a little uncomfortable, (2) the outer windows were dirty, possibly because they had snow and it melted right on it (we saw the same thing in other buildings) and (3) that the broadband Internet in the lobby was very slow and we ended up buying 2 prepaid cards à 20 minutes each in order to check in. Apart for having the amenities of a 5-star hotel, they have a spa, a barber's shop, a gym and a hair dresser on the basement. Also, you'll find a good restaurant called Grillid on the 8th floor, plus a bar and Skrudur bistro on the first floor. They have a bank, a souvenir shop and a Reykjavik Excursions tour desk, all on the first floor too. We only tried the spa (see my separate tip about it).
