Fair 4.0
Good Location and that's about it
The location of this hotel is pretty good, and it has free parking, but that is really about all it has going for it. Once you are inside, it is pretty outdated. The room was not particularly clean, and smelled a little bit off. The bathroom was not very nice or clean, but the shower did have good water pressure. The water smells like sulfur, which I guess is common in Reykjavik, but it still made the room smell like farts. I would not stay in this hotel again when I travel to Iceland.

Lovely short stay. The room was clean and efficient. The cold water from the tap was amazing for drinking, no ice needed in my thermal water bottle!! The warm water had a bit of sulphur smell, but it wasn’t a problem for us. The breakfast was incredibly varied and filling. Bread, eggs, meat, fresh fruit, Museli, granola, several other cereals, several cheeses, including Brie, lovely thin sliced brown bread that maintained its shape! croissants and several other breads way better than any hotel breakfast I’ve had at any American hotel! I’d stay here again for sure.

Great hotel
Awesome room! Nice and quiet. Convenient location! We will definitely stay there again! We stayed at several Fosshotels on this visit. All were great!

Favorite Reykjavik Hotel
This is the 4th time I've stayed at Foss Hotel Baron. The location is great, the staff is wonderful, the breakfast is awesome (it used to be free, but I understand -- this is more equitable), the beds and bedding are the best, wi-fi is fast and reliable, the property is clean and attractive. The only thing is that tiny shower with a curtain that sticks to you...

Great place to stay in Reykjavik
This is my 3rd time staying at this hotel. The good: Staff is very helpful. Also really nice that it is a quick pick up for any day tours. Close to the bus station, one block off the main bus line through the city -- TWO blocks off the main shopping/drinking etc so.... QUIET!! Good coffee shop on the corner, Hlemmer bus terminal 3+ blocks away is now a wonderful food court. Great buffet breakfast -- can choose to book it or not (around $20, but it will hold you, and that's not expensive for Reykjavik). The only bad for me: shower in the smallest rooms just has a curtain around the drain in the corner -- the floor ALWAYS gets wet, and it's definitely not roomy! Many of the other rooms have enclosed and larger showers. Hand soap and bathsoap/shampoo are in 2 containers on the wall.

Great Location.
Hotel is old but the room was great. Service was great. Location was great. The only complain was the water smelled of sulfur.
Connie, us1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
The room was tidy and the service excellent. The shower stall is small and the shower curtain is a little too high, so we had to be very careful showering, otherwise the water would be everywhere on the floor when we were done. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance, and you can see Harpa down the street!
