Personalet Små rom
Hyggelig betjening, rene rom, stille område, rimelig god frokost Dårlig TV tilbud, dårlig vanntrykk i dusjen
Da vi kom var rommet veldig varmt (syntes vi), og eneste luftemulighet var en liten del av vinduet som gikk an å åpne (ca 25x40cm?). Det var ingen forståelse hos hotellpersonalet for at dette ville bli for varmt å sove i. Det sto ikke på varme i rommet. Etter en dag eller to, med vinduet kontinuerlig åpent, og med baderomsavtrekket-viften på, ble det mer levelig. Dette så ut til å være normal vindusutforming i Reykjavik, og er antakelig vanskelig å endre. Men vi sov litt dårligere enn normalt.
kort vei til sentrum litt små rom
This review is about the two floors of the hotel which are a hostel, not a hotel. They lend you a tiny (nearly a joke, I guess) lock to put on the small cubby boxes in the room. 1000ISK deposit. The kitchen contains dishwashers. I stayed in a room with 12 or 14 beds. The doors on these rooms are "underdamped", meaning they are designed or adjusted to slam very very loudly if you let them close by themselves. It shakes not just the room, but is even obnoxious during the day if you're in a common kitchen or lounge down/across the hall. The door in my room was slammed AT ALL HOURS of the day except 12h30 -- 03h00 a.m. by the absurdly inconsiderate guests. The problem is that there is no effort by the hostel to tell people how to behave, and for some reason a large cross-section of the sample of young travellers in my room seem entirely oblivious to the surely-obvious effects of their actions on other people. There were no quiet hours announced. No one was told to close doors quietly. I was dumbfounded how people stayed up shouting, drinking, etc inside the dorm room (there are couches) until midnight, even when others were obviously trying to sleep, and the same people when they were on a different schedule, were up at 03h a.m. sharp talking loudly, and slamming the door countless times again. I mentioned to the staff that there was an educational solution (maybe) to this problem, but they didn't seem very interested. In addition to all that, the rooms, which look nothing nice as clean as in the pictures online (of course), have little cubby boxes below the beds where you supposedly can lock your valuables. The locking tabs are a bit of a joke, maybe, but in my room several were actually broken off anyway, so there was no way to lock them. This was my worst hostel experience ever.
laid back fun atmosphere There was nothing I didn't like
Friendly staff,decent location, clean dorms, nice locker for suitcase. Not having bathrooms for both sexes on both sides of the floor. Layout of dorms not great. Bad internet
Just the cutestest hostel ever. Very trendy, clean and comfortable. Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms and showers. Guests were very respectful. Had no trouble sleeping in the evenings. Great bar and sitting area in the reception area to drink and meet other travelers. Food was delicious at the restaurant. Excellent location, located on the main road, central in downtown. Most tours pick up just outside their door steps, as well as local bus stops. Although, it's easy to walk everywhere from there. Absolutely, love it and hope to stay there again one day. No negatives.
Classy breakfast buffet, wide spaces in the dorm rooms, not too cramped, evening shift front desk worker "Gary the Great" is a not a cool friendly dude, but extremely helpful.
Decent price and location Much dirtier in person Kitchen appliances don't work (stoves, ovens, microwaves) so use and need of kitchen is pointless People staying there do not clean their dishes, and cleaning crew doesn't do them either, so there's always a sink full of dirty dishes and no utensils. Advertises soap and shampoo provided yet they give 1 tiny bottle of shampoo that people end up stealing so no soap or shampoo Same with the soap in the bathrooms. No soap. Checked out a day early (almost 30 hours early) yet told that no refund would be given because not given 24 hours notice (?)
Positivt med gratis skyssing av gjester til sentrum - fine gangvegar kring hotellet Hotellet var lite barnevennleg, ingen leikeplass eller uteområde
Behagelig atmosfære Mer variert buffet!! Transport til og fra hotellet er for kronglete!!
Personalet på serverings ( restauranten) avdelinger var meget hyggelige og profesjonelle. Det var ikke god nok Internett dekning på rommet.
Greit og ordentlig hotell, lett å booke opplevelser og leiebil direkte fra egen desk på hotellet til meget gode priser. Vi spiste en meget god middag på hotellet første kvelden i resturanten. Nei
fasiliteter frukost inkludert
Great location on the harbor; within walking distance of the main Reykjavik attractions; very cool vibe for both adults and children; excellent service.
Staff is very helpful Smaller rooms on a busy street
bar was good breakfast location road outside can be loud
Flott hotell med god standard og god mat.
Frokosten Litt langt å gå til sentrum og litt få shuttelbusser.
Meget stilrent, enkelt og bra hotell med veldig fin beliggenhet. God frokost med bra utvalg. Kort vei til Reykjavik's størtse shoppingsenter Kringlan samt kort vei til sentrum. Kommer garantert til å velge Hilton Nordica neste gang jeg besøker Reykjavik :)
Vi ble gledeligt overasket over hotellet på alle plan,vil gjerne komme tilbake
Hotellet ligger meget sentralt. 15 min spasertur til City Center og 15 min spasertur til Reykjavik's store kjøpesenter Kringlan. Flott utsikt over byen fra hotellets toppetasje.
relativt sentralt uten braaket fra sentrum. hyggelige ansatte.
God service og pene rom. Fin beliggenhet,sentralt, men likevel litt utenfor bykjenen. Litt bedre utvalg på frokosten
Greit hotell med lett adkomst. Noe veistøy. Var ikke mulig å holde luftevinduet åpent. Resulterte i dårlig luft på rommet.
Hotellet ligger rolig til i fin gåavstand til sentrum. Rommene er romslige og gode. Hotellpersonalet er hjelpsomme.
Store, fine og rene rom. Hyggelig og veldig hjelpsomt personale. God frokost.
Topp service, hyggelig og hjelpsom betjening. Fikk utmerket hjelp ved problemer med kjole (låne syutstyr).
Det var så bra at jeg gjerne kommer tilbake til hotellet ved en senere anledning. Alt var som forventet
Rommene hadde god standard. Badet var lite og en måttte nesten kl på seg dursjen fordi den var så liten. Middagen var heller trasig med seigt kjøtt og smakløs mat.
Beliggenhet,rommet. Forlengelse av spisetid for frokost til kl.1100.Ta bort punktet o 24-timers service.(Bar open)
Pent, rent og ryddig. Sentral beliggenhet og alikevel rimelig stille. Helt OK hotell. Et generelt problem i Island: Servicepersonel smiler ikek og virker ike som de er særlig glad fo rå ha gjester. Hotell Fron var slett ikek verre enn andre steder, men samtlige besøkte steder i landet har et betydelig forbedringspotensiale.
sentralt ,god standard, behjelpelig personalet,
Rommene var store og koselige. Frokosten var grei nok, men kunne vært bedre. Det var lytt mellom rommet og gangen og ble vekket av at gjester som kom hjem fra natteliv i byen.
Rimelig, enkelt og helt greit hotell belliggende midt i smøryet. Fint for enkle opphold for kun søvn og litt shopping. Ingen luksus. Svært varierende romtyper. Har bodd på Fron ved mange anledninger de siste 4 årene. Vet hva det er og er fornøyd med det når hovedsaken kun er korte opphold for en natt el 2 med kort vei til shopping og spisesteder.
Somehow this isn't mentioned on their website or any reviews I've seen, but Hotel Alda gives each guest an android smartphone in lieu of a room phone. This phone works throughout Iceland, has reception on speed dial, and has all the other bells and whistles you'd expect of s smartphone: maps, activity guides, etc. A great and welcome surprise! Unfortunately for the hotel, but fortunately for Reykjavik generally, there is a bit of construction going on near the facilities. Not a big deal if you're getting up early to go on an adventure, but if you intend to sleep in do ask for a room on the other side of the hotel. This advice should be good through the end of summer 2015.
Location and view. Smal room, not much storage room.
The hotel was great. From the atmosphere and decorations to the people working there. The front desk staff were amazing and friendly. They were always ready to help and had a smile on there faces everyday. We got a family sized room for two people just because I heard the rooms might be smaller. However the room was bigger than I expected including the bathroom. You hear that the shower doors fold to make more room. However even extended there is enough room for the other person to use the sink or get ready. The hotel gives you a cell phone with data included, which was honestly amazing. I made the phone into a wifi hotspot and was able to use my own cell phone throughout the trip. Just bring portable charger with you as the phone battery dies quickly this way. The hotel is also located on the main strip and perfect walking distance from restaurants and bars. But a few blocks down so you don't hear the noise of the bars at night. We never tried the breakfast downstairs as we always had say trips planned in the mornings. There is a bakery down the street that is open early I can't remember the name of it but the front desk told us about it. Big enough to sit down and have breakfast, but gets packed as well so give yourself enough time if you have morning plans. The room does come with a pot to make your own hot tea and instant coffee if you are in a rush. Hard to say what I did not like about the hotel. The only thing I can think of is that the room gets very warm and with no thermostat to control temperature. We opened the window everyday however it only opens a tiny crack and doesn't stay open on its own. Probably from the wind outside. Just bring light pajamas with you and you will be fine.
Hyggelig og hjelpsomt personale, fine rom, bra med parkett og ikke teppegulv på rommet, fint bad, svært reint og velholdt, super beliggenhet. Nei, her var alt helt supert!
Interiøret og beliggenheten blidere resepsjonsansatte
The hotel staff were very courteous and went out of their way to make sure all of our needs were met. Our room was much larger than expected, very clean, and very affordable. The location is close to the city center but the area is not nearly as busy / moderately quiet. We will stay at this location next time we visit Reykjavik. It would have been helpful if there was a refrigerator in the room however the staff made accomodations for us get ice to keep our son's milk cold for the evening.
Quiet hotel, staff very knowledgeable about what to see and do in Reykjavik and very helpful. The hotel itself is just a little bit too far from the centre of town but that is not a major complaint.
warm comfortable room with great shower plus hairdryer. Great idea to have an ironing board and iron available on each floor to use if required. Breakfast was ample. Loads of reading material/leaflets available to help inspire ways of exploring Iceland. Hotel staff very friendly & helpful, lovely place to stay. For the price & location it was just perfect.
No double beds!! No double beds
good location , ocean view , free wifi , free coffee machine/hot water , heating is very good regulated in room and in bathroom water is a bit volcanic taste ; room service only once in five days
Clean, friendly staff.lovely atmosphere. Nothing
Staff very friendly and the place was very clean.Beds were very comfortable It would have been nice to have been able to make coffee and tea in the room
Rooms were clean and adequate for our needs. The staff was most helpful. I would stay with you again. Our first room assigned to us had an order. There was no problem whatsoever in gettting us changed to another.
Simple, clean warm and friendly. Wi-fi did not work in the rooms as advertised.
good value and really close to everything you want to see the shower on the ground floor was borderline to hot.
location was wonderful, and easy to explane when you are lost because there was a pizza restaurant near by. Also, it was one block away from the famous church. Breakfast was wonderful. couldn't stop eating the bread they provided. it maybe difficult to use the restroom, since the building i stayed was a modified house, which had only one bathroom( just one) on the floor with three bed room.
Our stay at the storm hotel was wonderul. The person at the desk even went out of their way to call our tour company when we missed out bus. The tour company sent a small van to just pick us up. So thankful for that desk person!
+ Only 5-10 mins to citycenter. Perfect for a nice walk through the heart of Reykjavik. + Clean and modern + Good complimentary continental breakfast + Happy Hours everyday + Onsite Parking
I really loved the hotel. Its about a 5 min walk either the shopping/bar areas or the water! But the staff was extremely helpful with everything!! They kept the hotel spotless and were great at suggestions for everything we inquired about! I would definitely stay there again!
Hotellets beliggenhet er bra ift restauranter, shopping etc og ligger i et relativt stille område Hotellet er relativt slitt og gammeldags. Det var tykke lag med støv på vinduskarmer og vinduene hadde ikke vært vasket på svært lenge. Dette trakk totalintrykket svært mye ned
god service, hotelets egenart og stil. god mat, stille og rolig. bra pris. Nei
Jeg har bodd på Holt fem eller seks ganger og kommer til å gjøre det igjen, det er simpelthen mitt yndlingshotell
Meget bra hotell, svært imøtekommende personale Internett som de averterer med at er gratis, er der men virker ikke på en slik måte at det går an å jobbe på noe online. Svart dårlig linje.
det fungerte bra. hyggelig og hjelpsomt personale. sentrumsnært. lett tilgjengelig for oss og for transport. mye støy om natten. vi hadde rom ut mot et torg hvor det var samling av motorsykler og ungdom som sto på rullebrett. også støy fra biler som ryddet opp og vasket torget hver morgen. her burde det settes inn lydskjermende vinduer!!! neste gang må jeg ha rom vendt en annen retning.
Beliggenheten var grunn til vår booking Dårlig gulvbelegg som fliket opp rett før inngang til badet. Rom 101.
Jeg likte beliggenheten og muligheten til raskt å være utenfor bykjernen.Prisnivået er akseptabelt. Meget god frokost. Det er altfor trangt i frokostsalen. Ellers ikke noe å klage på.
Det var helt OK for vårt behov - overnatting på 1 dags opphold på vei fra USA til Norge Ønsket personlig mulighet til å bruke trapp og ikke bare heis. Den gikk litt tregt og det ble stundom litt kø. (men har noe heisforbi)
Hotellet var et greit overnattingssted med frokost, resepsjonen var behjelpelig, renholdet bra. Betydelig slitasje på badeværelset. Umulig å snu seg i dusjen!!!!!!!! Det verste var støyen utenfra til alle tider (rom 317 med vinduer i 3.etg. mot et smalt smug), nattestøyen var verst; fulle folk som synger eller krangler rett utenfor vinduene (som måtte være åpne da det manglet air-condition), og fra kl 05.30 ble gatene enten spylt eller søppelbilen parkerte nedenfor vinduene med motoren i gang i 20 minutter mens søppelet ble samlet og flasker knust, eller det var vaskerileveranser -med motoren igang i 10-15 minutter- eller matvarer som ble levert osv.
