Great location. Friendly helpful staff. Comfy bed. Standard double room is very small - recommend paying a little more for a better room.

We were housed in the building opposite the main hotel, this meant getting dressed up for the freezing weather to cross the road for breakfast each day. We then had to take off all the excess clothing in order to eat breakfast. We then had to get dressed again to return to the room. for one or two days this would not have been bad but for a five day stay it was very annoying. The room was small and had no facilities other than a TV.To repeat the above to get a cup of coffee from the main building was unthinkable.

This hotel is in the perfect location for everything. The staff could not be more helpful and the free breakfast was great. The beds were comfy and the linen super soft. With the really tall church opposite the hotel you can never get lost. Can not recommend this hotel more highly, I would definitely go back in the future

Location, location, location! And VERY helpful
Hotel Leifur Eiriksson was an amazing place to stay. LOCATION is the best feature about this hotel with it being steps away from the church (expect to see tourists), shops, restaurants, and the major attractions. You can walk only 10 minutes and reach the Sun Voyager and Harpa. A bus stop is right across the street, and the BSI is only a 10-minute walk. The workers at the hotel were VERY friendly and helpful. We lost a phone during one of our tours, and the concierge helped us contact the tour company and find the phone! The workers also helped us with directions and held our luggage when we arrived too early. As per other reviews, the bathroom was very small but we didn't mind. The room was very large and comfortable. However, if you are a very light sleeper like me, bring ear plugs for the local traffic and tourists (but I'm a VERY light sleeper). The water was very clean. I loved the daily house cleaning with fresh towels. The breakfast was plentiful and I loved the free coffee machine. I learned I love pickled fish. My only critique would be to change up the breakfast menu every now and then. By day 3, we were slightly bored with the menu items despite being plentiful: toast, cheese, fruit, sandwich meats, cereal, yogurt. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay. I highly recommend Hotel Leifur Eiriksson.

Room 408 severely compromised on space. Not enough room to swing a cat as the saying goes. Located in the eves of the roof. Bathroom cramped. Breakfast good, location great. Great views
