Excellent location in the heart of Reykjavik - friendly staff, nice rooms. Would absolutely stay again. The jacuzzi tub was a nice surprise as well. The breakfast is the best part, though. Cold spread, hot spread, proper english brekky with beans, soft boiled eggs, toast, and my favourite - american bacon!

My boyfriend brought me to Reykjavik as a surprise birthday trip. The Radisson Blu 1919 was the perfect choice hotel. Right in the centre of the old town near the harbour and restaurants. The staff were polite and helpful. We arrived slightly early and our room was ready for us which was great after an early flight. The room was...

We stayed as a couple for 4 nights mid-November. I had previously read on TripAdvisor about the possibility of noise. I contacted the hotel prior to our stay to request a quiet room. That was arranged, no problem. Staff are more than helpful, especially when asked for information about the city and sights. Rooms were very clean, and very comfortable....

Given that we were going to a show at Harpa and a Northern Lights boat ride, we could hardly have had a better location. Our room appeared to be newly remodeled. At breakfast, Mindaugas was the epitome of friendly, efficient service - can't say enough about him - Great guy! The noise outside on Saturday was loud, but I have...

Just completed a four night stay at this hotel. Overall we were very impressed. First, the hotel is in a great location and is walking distance to Harpa, shopping, and the general downtown area.

Situated in the middle of quaint shopping streets with countless restaurants, shops and boutiques, there's no better location than this. It's also just 2 blocks from the new and exciting HARPA concert hall. Our standard room did not have a view, but for that it was very quiet. The bathroom was spacious and functional. The TV was small, but who...
