Radisson Blu Saga Hotel, Reykjavik

Reviewed 15 April 2012

This was a great hotel as a base for touring around Reykjavik. The walk into town isn't very long, 10-15 minutes, but it's a nice walk. A wonderful bonus is that when you go on day tours around Iceland - you always get dropped off at the hotel door (which is excellent at the end of the day).

We stayed in a twin room which was nice and big, and well cleaned. We didn't pay for breakfast at the hotel. Instead, a great easy option is heading over to the Shell station beside the hotel to pick up cereal bars and skyr for those on more of a budget.

Internet access was difficult in the hotel - wi-fi is available but we weren't travelling with laptops and the computers in the lobby were both broken while we were there. The staff were incredibly helpful when I needed to look something up online but there didn't seem to be much motivation to fix the lobby computers quickly (down for 2 days as far I know)

All in all - we had a great stay at the Saga and I think it's a well kept hotel in the perfect location for people who are interested in doing day tours around Iceland and not just spending their whole trip in the city centre.

Dear guest.
Thank you very much for your comments and pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the internet access, I do apologies for any inconvenience caused. We were at the time renovating our business centre and unfortunately we had to take it out of action during that time. The renovation of the business centre is however completed now and is up and running. We look forward to welcome you again should you decide to visit Iceland in the future.
Sincerely
Ingibjörg

The hotel has large, clean rooms, the staff is friendly and helpful. Good breakfast with wide selection.

The hotel is very good but it a bit far away from the city center, all right, if you want to go for a walk. Were generally pleased with this stay.

The front desk staff is friendly and accommodated a number of miscellaneous requests (they seemed to be fluent in several languages). Our room was small but well appointed with contemporary fixtures and was operating-room clean. The breakfast bar (included in our package) was nice with a variety of fruits, breads, eggs and some meat options (and staffed by courteous and efficient staff). The hotel has some conference room facilities and there was at least one business group making use of them while we were there. The other two couples with us stayed at a hipster type boutique hotel closer to the city center. It was a lot noisier, seemed crowded and was more expensive than the Radisson. We went in December, so the hotel exuded a level of calm that may not be present during high European vacation season. For a stay in Reykjavik, this is a great option, and I can see us going back at some point.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the inner courtyard have no view if that matters to you.

this hotel is about a 10+ minute walk from town, but it's a nice walk. the hotel is clean, the staff is nice and our room was comfortable. the breakfast is very good - fresh foods and lots of choices. if you're driving, there's plenty of parking. if you're doing day tours, you get picked up at the hotel, but consider being dropped off downtown for easier access for lunch or dinner. if you want a snack, there's a great hot dog truck ("Bæjarins beztu") by the harbor that shouldn't be missed. it's a nice little city - take the time to walk the streets. the downside, oddly and sadly, i didn't find icelanders to be very friendly. i add that comment not to take away from our beautiful trip, but just to make others aware of the cultural difference perhaps.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. Everything at the hotel is very nice but I still think they need to do some updating in the rooms. The walls were banged up just like last time. But they do keep it very clean & that is the most important thing to me. The staff is also very nice. You have a great view from the hotel and it's a nice walk down to the main square.

Dear guest.

Thank you for your comments.
I am happy to tell you that we are in the process of renovating the hotel. Regarding the rooms, we have already done soft renovations on some of the rooms like painted the walls and changed window and this is an on-going process.
We are in the process of painting all hallway walls and changing carpets in common areas. We have also painted the outside of the hotel.
In addition two of four elevators will be changed this summer.

We thank you for choosing our hotel and look forward to welcome you again.

Best regards
Ingibjörg
