"Comfortable stay, great location"
Hotel Holt is a little dated and the rooms could do with redecoration, but the location is perfect, the service is impeccable, the breakfast buffet is awesome. I might be biased because I was upgraded from a regular room (which seemed very small) to a junior suite with a balcony and breathtaking panoramic view of Reykjavik. My travelling companion was […] not upgraded and the regular room seemed cramped. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Delightful hotel. Conveniently situated."
Comfortable room. Delicious breakfast. Pleasant bar. Near to everything. A most enjoyable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, great location"
This was a great place to stay. It is quiet and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's an easy walk to all the things you'd like to see in Reykjavik and it's also around the corner from the bus station. The one bummer was that the wireless signal was not very strong in my room - almost non-existent. So, I had to use my laptop in the bar […] or the lobby where it worked great. Fortunately both those locations are very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Conveniently located. Attentive staff. Hotel has one of the biggest art collections in Reykjavik.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Soaking in iceland"
Excellent staff, very helpful. Bar had expensive, fancy drinks. Abut over the top. Rest of hotel was excellent. Would stay there again. Largar spa a bit of a walk, but hot pods were excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Art Filled Hotel"
Friendly hotel with great interior finishes and artwork.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I stayed one night before our flight back home. There are two things I would recommend bringing with you, ear plugs and an eye shade. I would note that the main issues I had with this hotel are more a product of the city and not necessarily their specific property. In the Summer, you keep some windows open to allow air in, unfortunately […] it also allows all of the street noise in and this is a VERY late town with the last bars closing at 5:00 am. Unfortunately, there was no fan to create any sort of white noise to drown it out. The other issue is in order to block the evening light, you have to close your shades, thereby blocking air flow so it gets a bit hot.The hotel itself was a bit dated but had some charm to it and the front desk clerk was very helpful. Again, I would just suggest brining an eye shade and ear plugs with you, unless of course you will be out with everyone until 5:00 am. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very nice with lots of features to appreciate. The rooms were a bit too small and the general maintenance level of the hotel was slightly outdated. But overall I recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location and helpful staff. Easy internet access in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent artwork and convenient to downtown"
I would say overall I enjoyed my stay. I did not eat at the restaurant however I thought everything else was nice; breakfast was above average for Europe and I thought the staff was nice. The room was a little small but I didn't order deluxe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
couldn't have asked for a better hotel. staff, location and amenities were exceptional!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Holt - May 2012"
Small but up-to-date European style hotel in the old part of Reykjavik. The staff was pleasant and very accommodating, and took care of all our needs. Excellent location within easy walk of the attractions of the city. If you want to feel "away from home" avoid hotels in the "modern" part of town - they are unremarkable and away from the heart of t […] own. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were very pleased with this hotel. It is a couple of blocks away from the main shopping street - very convenient. The room was comfortable and very clean. The personnel was very friendly. Loved this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We will return!"
Spent 4 nights here last weekend, very comfortable hotel, a little faded from its former glory but still classy with wood panelling and lots of interesting paintings and art. We thought breakfast wasn't included but it was, and was excellent. The hotel is very close to the historic and shopping area, and perfect for exploring Rekyavik. We didn't dine […] here but heard good reports. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A gallery at your hotel"
The Holt is located on a small street a five minute walk from the main shopping street. The hotel houses Iceland's largest personal art collection. Staff was always polite and very helpful. The backside lower rooms are a bit noisy - delivery trucks, kitchen staff on breaks, etc. Rooms are small but adequate. The restaurant serves fantastic food but […] is very expensive. The breakfast provided by the hotel was large and catered to all tastes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for a family holiday"
Very conveniently located in a quiet area yet only a few minutes stroll to all the main sights in Reykjavik. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and keen to help us get the most out of our stay. We had a suite with comfortable king size bed and a large sofa bed in the living room which our 13 and 10 year old children shared very happily. […] Nice to be able to fold the sofa bed up during the day and have the use of a sitting room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Holt... Perfect base to discover Reykjavík"
Hotel Holt is a short 10 minute walk from Reykjavík's shopping and entertainment areas. Our group found the hotel to be ideally situated, comfortable and very well maintained. Our rooms had very comfortable beds, were of reasonable size and well furnished with a flat screen TV, well-stocked bar fridge and adequate wardrobe storage. Free WiFi coverage […] was available throughout the hotel. The reception and breakfast areas dark wooden panels with book shelves gave the ground floor an old & worldly feel. Breakfast was a self-service buffet which offered a good selection of breads, sliced meats, ham, cheese, cereals, yogurts, boiled & scrambled egg, bacon, warm water for tea, coffee and juice. Lastly we found the hotel staff to be very helpful, friendly and flexible. All in all, I had no complaints... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If I ever return to Reykjavík, I would not hesitate in staying at the Hotel Holt again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel close to downtown area of Reykjavik"
Very nice hotel and very helpful staff. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice one night stay in Hotel Holt. Room and hotel were clean, staff lovely. Parking is a boon in Reykjavik and is a great base to explore from. Room was a little cold (i should've asked reception about it really) but generally comfortable. Breakfast choice was OK but nothing spectacularGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old World hotel"
We stayed at Holt for our last night in Reykjavik. The room was big and comfortable. It's a old hotel but well maintained. The staff were very helpful. I loved the old elevator and the shoe shine machine. Breakfast, which was included, was great. Don't miss their croissants. The Gallery Restaurant is also very good, a bit pricey, but worth the mone […] y. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly and comfortable. We arrived very early in the morning and were offered breakfast while awaiting our room, which was ready by 9:30. It was a great way to start and allowed us to rest up from our flight before our adventure in Iceland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel 4-5 blocks to main street."
A few blocks from main street which is good as way quieter than if stay on the strip. Staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel in quiet location"
The hotel staff were wonderful. The hotel is being renovated and that could be very loud at times with drills etc. Other than that it was a very nice hotel in a good location. It is a short walk to the main shopping areas.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice Hotel Close To Town centre"
We had a great time. the town centre was 5 minutes walk from the hotel. only thing the food and drinks are super expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel close to the centre of town"
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Holt. The hotel has a warm, comfortable, slightly old fashioned feeling: the public areas are all dark wood panelling, carpets, low lighting and sofas. There is also an interesting collection of paintings and sculpture by local artists and (slightly incongruously) a jukebox with a great collection of 60s and […] 70s rock. The rooms are modern: ours was large enough with an enormous comfortable bed and plenty of hot water in the shower. The breakfast is excellent and the staff are helpful. All in all a great hotel and one that is hard to fault. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good central hotel"
Nice welcome from friendly receptionist, good breakfast. Room quite small but comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location - near the main street"
Lovely staff, great service. Rooms were smaller than I had expected, but it was a decent hotel - clean rooms, warm showers, free wifi. The (one and only) lift is terribly small so it took us a while to get our luggage to the respective rooms,.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel, great location. Stayed for five nights. Staff very good. Breakfast room could do with a bit of a makeover, breakfast good but the same everyday, could do with extending hours of breakfast, as some of trips do keep you out quite late. Would recommend to any travellerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Discreet and welcoming"
A quality hotel, from the leather upholstry and wood panelling to the quiet atmosphere. Very clean, well appointed bedrooms with comfortable beds, some rooms definitely small doubles by international hotel standards but perfectly adequate. A delicious breakfast buffet. Young friendly staff ready to help you with any issue. Great place for peace and […] quiet and yet only a few minutes walk from a main shopping street and the wonderful cathedral and no more than 10/12 minutes walk to the main square and the old harbour area with its many restaurants and cafes. Definitely worth its star rating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely Hotel 10 min from centre"
Lovely clean hotel. Pleasant staff, who helped sort out my Icelandic Sat.Nav and booked restaurants for us. Clean rooms, not huge , but big enough. Tea and coffee in room. Mini bar expensive ( aren't they all). Restaurant is very expensive but plenty of choice in town within easy walking distance. Bakery 50 yards up street selling croissants and coffee […] for simple breakfast. Small shop just around corner . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel with Wonderful Staff"
My stay at Hotel Holt was very comfortable, and very enjoyable. The hotel is situated mere streets away from the Hallgrimskirkja Church, and within walking distance of the centre of the city. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, and made sure we as visitors were treated very well from the start to end of our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Quality Medium sized Hotel"
The Junior Suite was a good size with King Bed & Lounge. Unlimeted free passes to World Class Gym & pool complex. Restaurant was slightly pricey. Overall very GoodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Never got there ........."
Booked this hotel in October for a Feb stay and they cancelled our booking less than 24hrs before we left ........we were found an excellent replacement (Hilton Nordika )but much further out and a totally different "style" of hotel . Don't know if it was Hotel Holt or Expedia who messed up but I would be anxious about booking this hotel again. For info […] when I grumbled a very nice girl from Expedia who was managing the problem phoned the hotel again to see if they'd had any cancellations and they said no so they were obviously full - can't see how they could only work this out 24 hrs before an arrival.

"Comfortable hotel 5 minutes from city centre"
Not an old hotel but inside has a feel of faded splendour like an old country house: soft leather sofas with oil paintings on the walls. Good buffet breakfast. Clean, comfortable rooms. Hotel staff very helpful in booking excursions etc. A great base for exploring Reykjavik which can be readily explored on foot. The hotel is very warm. The hotel restaurant […] appears very expensive even by Icelandic standards: but plenty of others near by across the price range. For a real treat of Icelandic traditional fare try Prir Frakkar just two minutes walk from the hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Efficient, polite check-in. Friendly staff. On checking out at 0400, whilst waiting for our airport transfer the receptionist offered us juice and coffee which I thought was great service. Character; the décor whilst possibly not to everyones taste, does give the hotel its own character Location; quiet, residential back street, yet only a 2 minute walk […] from shops, restaurants and 10 minute walk from nearby attractions.

"The reception staff are amazing."
Long weekend in Reykjavik with family. Hotel reception staff helped us out with everything, it was like having a private secretary. They were so great they helped to make the weekend a brilliant break. Nothing was too much trouble, and I know I was quite a demanding guest as it was a special occasion, time was short and we wanted to pack a lot in to […] our trip. The hotel itself is very well located, central but quiet. We didn't get chance to eat in the restaurant but were told by locals the food is "magnificent". The decor is a bit tired in places, it's not a slick modern hotel but it has a charm that grows on you. Nice bar and a much appreciated happy hour! If I returned to Reykjavik I'd certainly return to Holt. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Holt was a great find and good value as we took up and offer for a junior suite on Expedia - friendly service and great room - we did not eat at the hotel at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent staff and great central location"
The staff at the front desk went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. They got us reservations to a great restaurant on Christmas eve when many restaurants are either closed or fully booked. They fulfilled all of our requests and were very friendly. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the main shopping street. We will definitely […] stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Atmospheric hotel, quiet location away from centre"
Overall a lovely hotel, great happy hour every night and a lovely lounge area. Do not expect much from your room - very small, twin beds which were smaller than my 8 year old sons!

"Comfortable relaxed luxury"
This is a friendly hotel that manages to feel both relaxing and luxurious at the same time. Helpful staff and wonderful art on the walls. Well located - only 5 minutes from Bankastraeti and Laugavegur. Great art on the walls and a bar with a bit of life in it. The only bad thing is the big tacky pink Hotel Holt sign on the roof that you can see from […] miles away. It really isn't a tacky hotel at all apart from that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Wonderful helpful staff who were only to happy to assist with questions and trip […] booking. Room and bathroom extremely clean and well maintained. Very quite room.
