"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
Great hotel. The rooms are adequately sized and clean. The locations is great because you can reach about anything in the city.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel and services were excellent! Really enjoyed our stay. The automatic shoe shine machines and the hotel's art collection were a nice touchGenuine Expedia guest review
"fabulous hotel in all ways possible"
Great location and easy walk to center of city. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Free parking, and easy access to great restaurants. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a comfortable, clean, convenient, affordable and friendly stay in Reykjavik!Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location. The building itself was excellent with very interesting artwork and style to the dining rooms and bars. The room itself was a little small by American standards but spot on for European tastes. Overall I would greatly recommend this hotel to others.Genuine Expedia guest review
Old fashioned high quality Hotel with best location available in Reykjavik and this time for very good price. I can gladly recommend this for everyoneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Hotel Holt"
I enjoyed 5 wonderful nights at the Hotel Holt in December for my birthday. The room was warm and cozy and the staff were amazingly pleasant and super helpful. The original pieces of art decorating the hotel were phenomenal. Very short walking distance to the main street, even while navigating in the snow! Overall a wonderful experience in Iceland and […] I definitely recommend to all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay in Reykjavik!!"
This hotel is in an amazing location. It's within walking distance to all attractions but on a side street for a more quiet setting. The front desk is very helpful and the morning buffet and free wi-fi made up for any difference in cost between this hotel and a less expensive hotel. The lounge and restaurant were delicious, the rooms were comfortable […] and very clean. We didn't bring our young children with us but if we did, the hotel would have been perfect for them, too.

"Old, but worth staying"
Front desk services were excellent, very friendly and efficient. A room we, a family of three, used was spacious, though extra sofa bed was not as comfortable as I wanted. Location is convenient, as good restaurants and shops are nearby, though hotels at city center tend to be last drop off spots when you join the bus tours.Genuine Expedia guest review
"overall good stay"
The hotel was a little dated, and the room was a little crowded for 3 people. Bathroom was a little small and not much counter/space to put things, but those were my only complaints. Beautiful art collection displayed everywhere in the hotel. breakfast was good, and dinner was delicious. Apparently one of the best/fancy restaurants in town. We found […] out that the hotel was built a long time ago, but was limited for senators and people of importance to stay. Service was friendly- they arranged for our airport ride, gave us late checkout. Just be aware that if you come home late at night, someone has to come open the door because they lock the main doors. Location is good- great bakery about 200 feet away. We went there many times to pig out on their pastries. Also not a far walk to hit the main streets of downtown.

Great hotel, 10 minutes walk from town centre, extremely clean and comfortable rooms,adequate breakfast. Reception staff extremely helpful. Overall would recommend this hotel with high standard.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
Response by Hotel Holt Dear Fred Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again sometime. Warm regards, Sigrún General manager
"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
"Top Hotel close to the evening action"
Went during Fun and Food week . Fantastic food at a fixed price. Very helpful staff and enjoyed some fabulous tours that hotel organised.Genuine 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! But despite small they were clean. Staff very helpful. Easy to walk to restaurants and shops.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet area but in central location"
Great homely hotel cosy intermate feel. Realy important to select junior suite as a minimum. Location is great just a 5 minute stroll straight into th centre. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"Great hotel choice"
Good location downtown on a side street. You are able to walk downtown to shops, restaurants within 10 minutes. Nearby bakery for morning rolls and treats. Hotel decor and furnishing somewhat dated however great art is displayed throughout the public area's of the hotel. 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. A great hotel in a wonderful city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The staff make this hotel"
Nice hotel overall, just worthy of a 4* rating. The staff are extremely helpful and polite which really does make a difference. The room was ok, a little dated and there was some noise (either from a heating system or neighbouring rooms). It was in a great location, only a few minutes walk from the main street and tourist attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, fantastic service, lovely decor,"
A long-time friend and I stayed at Hotel Holt and, after a week's stay, it started to feel like home. Most memorable were the friendly, efficient, professional and very helpful reception staff who answered our endless questions, offered some great suggestions for things to do/see/eat and helped us book tours and restaurant reservations. Located in the […] center of the city, my friend's room had a fabulous view of the city from her balcony room and we were only steps away from all the great shops and restaurants. We had a few breakfasts at the hotel and they were tasty and filling with lots of choices - coffee was great, something to look forward to in the mornings! The walls were decorated in beautiful artwork, the largest private collection in the city/country - I walked through each floor to look at all the paintings and sculptures. The bar and reception area were both had comfy leather chairs, great for chatting or having a drink and some snacks. My room in the back of the hotel was also comfy with all the amenities including a hot pot to make tea, hot chocolate or Nescafe; hair dryer and robe in the spotless bathroom; plenty of closet space and a desk for writing postcards. Whenever I return to Reykjavic, I would definitely book another stay at Hotel Holt and would highly recommend it to all my friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classic hotel in the city"
Staff were genuinely friendly and helpful in this classic old hotel. Had a fantastic meal in the restaurant; the chef was obviously not afraid to experiment with flavours and textures -- a real treat! Enjoyed looking at the amazing art works. Very easy to find your way around Reykjavik. Room smelt a little musty, but was warm and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is in a great location for exploring the glacier. Breakfast buffet was good and dinner in the restaurant was also enjoyable - not fine dining, but very good quality.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location and staff exceptionally helpful"
3 day stay and the hotel is well kept, clean, tidy and with exceptionally friendly staff. Only ate breakfast at the hotel which at 15 euros was expensive for what it was but did the job on the two days we needed to run out on trips, bearing in mind how reasonable the hotel was, didn't begrudge the price overall. The hotel is a maximum 5 minute from […] the main high street and a short stroll from there downtown. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is perfectly placed to make the most of your stay in Reykjavik, central but also close the the main bus station which is essential for all the trips you will make. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are large and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and I would recommend this hotel to anybody thinking of staying in Iceland.Genuine Expedia guest review
