This understated, unpretentious but very comfortable hotel is convenient for walking all over downtown Reykjavik and has a fantastic collection of Icelandic art for guests' enjoyment. Rooms are very comfortable, including nice down pillows. I really appreciated the helpful chat feature on the website, which I used before arriving to confirm how to get there from the airport late at...

We stayed here as a family for two nights in a junior suite. Everything works (!), from the WiFi to the heating. Parking is free and beds are comfortable. Breakfast is ample and relaxing. Sigurd, the receptionist was extremely competent: made our dinner reservation and smoothed our onward travel. I could stay here for several weeks - recommended!

Stayed here leading up to Xmas and each night a troll was placed on our door with a message. Trolls are the Icelandic Xmas tradition! The hotel and rooms are of a high standard and the decor is very chic. The bar is excellent. Centrally located. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed here in March 2016. The hotel has a lot of "classic" details and is somewhat museum like with the artwork, old elevator and details in design. There was free parking, although spaces were limited. It was within walking distance to the main streets. The TV stations were limited due to a recent ice storm, but...

I understand Hotel Holt is where President Reagan's party stayed so this is not the "W" Hotel redux. However, it is absolutely the place to stay in Reykiavik. That's because it is a local family-owned hotel and absolutely wonderful despite the rather delightfully dated feeling about it. It is a 15-minute walk to everything you want to see--and everyone in...

Location: It's walkable distance to the main streets, but also not so close. I have been to other hotels that are more central to the shopping and everything else. However the hotel is beautifully historical, I bumped into great people during my stay (including Yoko Ono when she was there to light the peace light, but of course I respected...

The Hotel Holt is a really special hotel because of their art collection. Art is everywhere, on the walls as paintings and in the hallways as sculptures. The hotel has an old-world feel with rich furnishings and wall coverings and gold metallic fixtures. We picked this hotel for a 2 night stay, 3 rooms because we knew our parents would...

Hotel Holt is in a good central location of Reykjavik, without being too busy. It stays quieter at night because it's in a residential area, but it's within walking distance of every spot frequently visited in Reykjavik. The staff were very helpful in calling restaurants and making reservations for us early so that we didn't miss out on the most...

The customer service was fantastic--food recommendations, helping book rental cars, The hotel could do with a bit of an update and not exactly what I was expecting, but the staff were unbeatable. I'd definitely stay again. Very convenient for walking around the city and close to a local grocery store and sights.
