Hotel Vellir has cozy rooms, staffs were helpful and friendly especially the supervisor in the breakfast area. Parking is free and open so easy to drive away and arrive anytime. Unfortunately this is not in the center or reykjavik but if you rent a car, reykjavik is just a shirt drive. Overall, we had a nice stay in this hotel.

Comfortable and free access to the Reebok gym!
A comfortable place close to Reykjavik with a decent breakfast. The rooms were clean and comfortable. On top, you get a free access to the Reebok gym next door which is a really great place!

Didn't have much time at the hotel due to arriving very late and leaving early. Staff was extremely helpful after an incredibly stressful day. Appreciated their efforts to get me to the hotel despite the weather and the lateness of the day.
