My wife and I were booked through a tour package at Hotel Smari. Although not knowing how far from downtown we were, the commute although long, was not difficult. The rooms are very basic, the breakfast very nice but truly the best part was the staff. Could not have been more helpful. In fact, we arrived very early on on...

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, simply furnished and lovely and warm. Breakfast was fab and the centre of Reykjavik was a short bus ride away. Would highly recommend if you are looking to stay somewhere reasonably priced and don't mind travelling by public transport to get to the centre etc. We booked a Northern...

It was...

My wife and I arrived very early in the morning and were allowed to check in due to room availability. This was fantastic since we were tired from our journey. This may not be true for everyone. All staff members at this hotel are very friendly and go out of their way to help with any questions about travelling in...

Smari although not in the centre of Reykjavik was easy enough to get picked up for trips and transfers from. The staff were excellent, any requests were always dealt with with a smile. Couldn't fault the place, the only down side was the smell of sulphur, but if you stay on a volcanic island then that's part of the deal!...

We arrived at around 6am, from an overnight flight from Toronto. The night person graciously found us rooms and shortly thereafter, we were asleep. Keep in mind, it doesn't get light until at least 10am in January, so no issue sleeping. Well, almost no issue. You should know this hotel is located quite close to a busy highway, so if...

I took my husband for a surprise birthday trip to Iceland and booked Smari as part of a package. It looks a little commercial from the outside, and is in a town 20 minutes by bus from reykjavik. That said, the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and warm, the breakfast buffet is amazing - an endless...

We booked this hotel last minute as basically it was the only hotel left with a double bed and not twin beds! The staff are genuinely the most helpful, caring and polite staff I've had the pleasure of meeting in a hotel. Nothing is too much trouble whether it's booking trips, giving advice about places to go or general chit...
