This is a great hotel. It's located on a quiet street, but it's an easy walk to the main shopping streets, where you can find restaurants, shopping and the tourist center. Our room was small, but clean and comfortable. There is a computer set up in the lobby for guests to use the internet and check their e-mails. Most of...

We thought the hotel was fine but probably not at the top of the heap. As others have commented, it is expensive - but probably not out of line with other Icelandic hotels. Most hotel staff was cordial and helpful - some of the restaurant staff was perhaps a bit "snooty". It was close to downtown but not easy to...

The Hotel Holt is probably more expensive than many Reykjavik hotels, but, as it's said, you get what you pay for. The rooms are spacious, very clean, and old school nice. The Galley restaurant served us fabulous dinners while there, and, when we were badly delayed by Icelandair, the chef and staff waited to serve us, even though we were...

Excellent hotel with a wonderful staff who were very helpful in getting us oriented around the city. 8 would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who asks. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast selection was quite good. It's central location makes it an ideal starting point for all day long excursions

We are all nature fun and like hiking. We had a very relaxing and full of fun 4 days in Iceland. The location of Hotel Holt is excellent you can reach everything on foot in Reykjavik downtown. Very nice restaurant but a little bit overpriced as always in Iceland. Recommend absolutely

The room is a little small, but we were able to make it work for 2 nights. Good breakfasts, and the lounge area looked very cool - but we didn't have time to take advantage of it. On a quiet street, easy walking distance to downtown Reykjavik.

We stayed for three nights at the Hotel Holt and found it quite charming, right down to the old-fashioned elevator. The staff was very pleasant and always ready to help. Two tips: (1) The hotel is on a street that isn't terribly busy (see the accompanying photo), but I would still recommend a rear-facing room. Due to the acoustics, any...

We stayed here a week and had a great time. Knowing what we know we would have requested a room towards the back of the Hotel. Being summer and light out 24/7 there was pedestrian and shuttle noise but that's what earplugs are for! The staff were warm, friendly and very accommodating. The location was perfect, away from the busier...

This hotel is a Gem of a find if you are looking for something traditional, comfortable and clean. Located very close to the centre but on a quiet residential street you really do feel a part of the small population. The room was clean with all the facilities you would expect and the bathroom fresh and modern. Breakfast was plentiful...

We spent 6 nights at the holt. The hotel is perfectly located so you can easily walk to the town, harbor and the bus station. The rooms were comfortable and had a great electric hot pot. The front desk staff, especially Emma, were wonderful. Emma acted as our personal concierge. She helped us with restaurant, golf and transfer reservations. The...
