About Hotel Leifur Eiriksson, Reykjavik

Family-run hotel on hip Skólavörðustigur street

By Hallgrimskirkja tower

Hotel Leifur Eiriksson is situated on one of the city’s hippest streets, Skólavörðustigur, which offers an array of galleries, cafés, and boutiques. Hallgrimskirkja church, across the street, features far-ranging Reykjavik views from its tower.

Drama, dance, puppets

A 7-minute walk, Einar Jónsson Museum is dedicated to the story and work of the eponymous sculptor. The National Theatre of Iceland is 450 meters away - its eclectic program of drama, dance, and puppetry has attracted visitors since the 1950s.

Guests praise the friendly and helpful staff, and also appreciate the free hearty breakfast buffet. Light fare and free hot coffee and tea are served all day in the snack bar; there's free parking in the area around the hotel. The hotel also has free WiFi and a newly renovated lobby and bar.

Free WiFi, satellite TV

If the temperature outside gets too cold, you can spoil yourself with 24-hour room service while tucked under the checkered bedding. The 47 Scandinavian-styled guestrooms come with free WiFi and satellite TV; some offer views of the landmark Hallgrimskirkja church.

Very Good8.0
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.

Over price
I do not think the price I paid is worth it, it is just a simple double room I stayed for one night, and it cost e $180 USD, but the location is very good and staffs are helpful.
