Good 6.0
Was initially given a basement room at the annex with windows looking out to pedestrian’s feet at a busy junction.After complaining was offered a much smaller room on 4th floor in the main building.

Great little hotel in Reykjavik!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights while traveling in Iceland. We thought the location of the hotel was one of the best features. It is directly across from the church and you are able to park for free there overnight. It is easily walkable to many other main attractions in Reykjavik. The hotel rooms are small but decorated nicely and the overall feel of the hotel was comfortable. We loved the unique pieces in the rooms and hallways. The complimentary breakfast suited our needs and provided us enough food to get our days started off on the right foot. It is important to know that this hotel does not have an elevator and has four floors, so that may be an issue for some guests. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location, friendly staff.
This was a great location - shopping, restaurants, walk to the shoreline, bus pick up across the street by Hallgrimskirkja - with friendly and helpful staff. The room was basic - small, clean, quiet, with free breakfast and wifi.

Boutique style in the heart of Reykjavik
The location couldn't have been better, I'm especially happy we paid extra for a room with the church view. Good selection of breakfast food. overall we loved this hotel. The bathroom could use a shelf for soaps in the shower.

Great location, lots of charm
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Leifur Eiriksson. It's an old building with lots of charm and a great central location. Our room looked directly out onto Hallgrimskirkja. Our only complaint was that the floors of our room seemed like they hadn't recently been swept or mopped. Other than that, everything was great.
