The staff were very polite and helpful. We did not have a chance to interact with the concierge. I can only guess that the concierge matched the rest of the staff. The restaurant had a nice breakfast - unfortunately, it wasn't included in the price. It was pricey but tasty - lots of variety. The room was comfortable. The size...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 March 2017

We stayed fours nights at the beginning of March. The staff were very friendly & helpful with any questions we had. The room was fine, reasonably basic, but we didn't plan on staying in the hotel for hours (to much to see & do outside). The bathroom was nice, good shower over the bath & fresh towels every day (towels...

This hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the city close to many restaurants, shops and bars. You can walk to Laugavegur Street and Hallgrímskirkja church tower. The rooms were spacious with nice beds. Breakfast was great with many options and good coffee.

Radisson Blu 1919 is located in the city center of Reykjavik. It is easy to walk to many of the sites in the city from the harbor to Hallgrimskirkja. The front desk staff is very friendly and were extremely helpful. Breakfast was included and was good. I especially appreciated the pot of coffee every morning.

It turns out that this hotel used to be the head quarters of a major shipping company. I say this as we were not aware or this from our booking. So, the hotel makes perfect sense now. The interior does have that commercial office kind of vibe to the rooms and if you are not expecting that then it can...

Great hotel in the centre of Reykjavik, just walk out and go around the corner to see the stunning mountain range views across the sea, or walk in the opposite direction to the shops and restaurants. For me it was fantastic to have a Nespresso machine in the room and a TV with a great selection of British channels.

We choose this hotel having previously stayed in a few Radissons and we like the brand. It's well located just moments away from the harbour and the main shopping street. Staff were warm and welcoming and able to provide information on the local area. I had previously emailed to ask for a quiet room and we were given a room...

This is my third time in Reykjavik, but my first time at the Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel. I was excited to try this property as I've never had a bad experience and Radisson Blu brand hotels, and was keen to see the Icelandic slant on such an experience. The location is good, the building impressive from the outside, and the...

This hotel in reykjavik is perfectly fine. We stayed in a business class room which had some space and a Nespresso. It had good storage and comfortable bed. The shower was over the bath - not a great thing. There was some street noise on Friday and Saturday - but that's everywhere in the middle of reykjavik, and was nothing...
