Too many people
The hotel rooms are small, but comfortable. Had we realized how intense the level of tourist activity would be around the church, we would have selected a room without a view of the church. We had to close all the windows to achieve quiet.

Good experience,few enhancements and make it great
Outstanding Hotel , great staff and location. Tight rooms , I think the bathroom was a closet at one point , had a very small light bulb and mirror (needs more lighting) , internet was not consistent. Thanks for including breakfast and coffee - nice touch.
Alexander, us2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
The room was nothing like the photos. We were shoved in a basement level, tiny room. With windows open (which you had to, otherwise it was extremely hot), there was constant street and people traffic. The room was old and outdated and arranged in such corner of the property the beds had to be split. One bed got a light and a view of the tv, the other bed got a phone. Had to rearrange the beds to find plugs. Very little room to move and while clean, it was worn and outdated. Blowdryer was only available with a deposit. The cable was “unplugged” and not working until the front desk plugged it back in. The only positive was the coffee machine in the lobby. The free parking is available in the church parking lot across the street and it is hard to find an available spot. I believe we got the “special” - a room no one else would pay that much to stay and use.

This was our first trip to Iceland and it was amazing. The staff at Hotel Leifur made our stay a very pleasant and comfortable one. When we visit Iceland again we will definitely stay at Hotel Leifur and we will recommend it to our friends and family.
