It needs a MAJOR renovation !!!!!

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 11, 2014

From the minute we walked in ... to the minute we left … the staff of this hotel saves the hotel from being just an average hotel. Ingrunn at the front desk (she's gonna kill me for misspelling her name) always had a great smile, was helpful and willing to answer all the questions and request we had for her. She is without a doubt an asset to this hotel. She made several phone calls for us to restaurants and even to find out where to pay a parking ticket I got in the city center.

This hotel NEEDS MAJOR renovations …. the rooms are fair size the 2 single beds are tiny, the showers are from the 1980's at least.

This also means having adult size towels not kids towels in the rooms.

Location …. Reykjavik is a very small city, we had a rental car and it made it easy to get around … the hotel is probably about a 20-25 walk to the old city … there is a bus that stops right outside the hotel, but it runs very infrequently … so we are glad we had a car.

I travel the world extensively both for work and for pleasure …. and the way people described the hotel breakfast buffet was something that it seemed almost unbelievable …. but the truth is …. it's a fair and standard breakfast buffet.

With a MAJOR upgrade then this hotel can regain it's famous standing, but the owners who are the Icelandic Farmers Association (I read it in a flyer in the room) need to step up and pump some money into this hotel …. it's not like this hotel is cheap, so they are certainly making serious cash off the tour groups that stay here and other business people that keep this hotel in business. The hotel is clean but somewhat disappointed.

We paid 150 Euros a night …. not cheap but Iceland isn't cheap to begin with …. The room is average in size, but the beds are tiny but at least comfortable. The shower has to be one of the most uncomfortable shower ever in a hotel room …. the whole place needs upgrading !!!!! The in room safe didn't work … just a total mess ….

The staff saved our stay and I would return after a renovation has taken place ….

The General Manger is well aware of the condition of the hotel since 90% of the comments have to do with how dated the hotel is …. the question is …. when is it gonna get done ?!?!?!?!?!?

Great hotel

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

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

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).
