A great located hotel, right in the heart of the centre. Rooms are OK with basic equipment, unfortunately we had to open all windows for the complete vacation, the hotel is basically far to hot. The reception area is a complete joke, its as warm as a sauna. Breakfast is continental style, with a toaster that takes at least 15...

My husband and I stayed in Hotel Fron for 7 nights. We enjoyed our time here. Just after check in we had operator error issues with the room safe. The receptionist was up to fix this within 10 minutes which we thought was great considering how busy she was, apologising for the delay. The reception staff was particularly helpful in...

Very warm room! Decent breakfast for the price of hotel. Helpful reception staff. Excellent location. Parking helpful/central but very tight - drivers lacking in confidence would be best placed not to try! At the basic end of the category I would say but excellent value in terms of price of other Iceland items! Easy to book online. Safe was broken...

We've just returned from a five night stay and I can't recommend this place enough! The location is excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast can be busy around 9 but there is something there for everyone. All the main attractions (within Reykjavik) are a few minutes walk. Upon arrival you are greeted with the same warm reception as...

Very small lobby as is usual in Reykjavik. The hotel seems to have purchased buildings around the original building, since we could see the name “Hotel Fron” on buildings next door. Our room, as a matter of fact, was in a glass building connected to the main lobby via a walkway. We took the elevator from the lobby, and as...

This is a small hotel that is located in a great area. Front desk staff are very friendly, helpful and very nice people. My room was comfortable and big, but I did not like to much the bathroom, but it was fine. The hotel is clean and has a nice patio. They offer free breakfast, but it is the same...

We have just returned from a short break at Hotel Fron. The rooms were clean and bright and the hotel team were really friendly. Considering how dreadfully expensive everything is in Reykjavík, the hotel was astounding value. The only basic missing was tea/coffee making facilities which would have been great coming in from the cold. Pick ups for all the...

The hotel is well located, short walk from most of downtown. Front desk staff very attentive and helpful (notwithstanding that EVERYONE seems to seek their assistance in booking tours etc). The rooms are small and the decoration is IKEA 1980's but there is a hot plate and kitchenware. Very clean and tidy. Wifi works well, safe in the bedroom and...

We stayed here for 4 nights, the location is the best thing about this hotel. Rooms are very tired, could feel springs in bed and pillows were lumpy and awful. No tea making facilities even tho room has a kitchen in it! Breakfast was ok, but served in restaurant next door and too small for the amount of guests that...
