Historical Traveller Reviews of Icelandair Loftleidir Hotel
Good Hotel for the pricefrom travelagent15
Okay, but would choose another hotel on returnfrom zautumn
Let me say first that this hotel is about 45 min to 1 hour away from the international airport. Thank goodness a transfer was included in our package otherwise we would have had to pay $100 for a taxi. We were on a red eye flight from NYC and when we arrived our room was not available. I didn't expect it to be, but wonder why Iceland Air books the package on a red eye and then doesn't arrange for early check in.
Breakfast was not inlcuded on the day of arrival either so we were on 4:00 am NYC time with no food and no place to sleep. We took the 9:30 am shuttle into the city center.
The shuttle is inadequate. It leaves at 9:30 am, and 10ish and returns from the city center to the hotel at 11:45 am and then not again until 6pm!!! We ended up walking back to the hotel twice which took about 20-30 mintues across a highway.
Breakfast was okay. Buffet with hot and cold.
The beds were very comfy. I enjoyed them very much. The hotel was clean and despite the $12 beers (typical of iceland) we were pleased with Loftleider with the exception of the shuttle.
The shuttle is the reason that we would not return.
They also have a tour desk in the hotel which is always staffed and very convienent as well as two free internet kiosks.

Great Thanksgiving in Icelandfrom jadams444
There was a walk involved to get to the center of town but if you do any walking at all it was not that big of a deal... 20 minutes and you were there. There was also shuttles and regular buses (#16) if you preferred not to walk. And of course you could always call a taxi and there was always one available.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
inconvenient, little characterfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Comfortable stay in Reykjavikfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed 5 nights at this hotel, rooms were a little on the small side but nicely decorated and lovely and clean. Mix up at check in when they had allocated us a twin room instead of a double but quickly resolved and they put us in one of the themed 'poet' rooms as all the standard doubles had gone.
Breakfast buffet has a very good selection though some of the hot food is lukewarm - think they need more powerful heat lamps.
Sauna and Hot tub are nice touches, it also has a small in-door pool.
A short walk up the hill to Perlan to see some amazing views. Overlooks the domestic airport but I think we only saw 2 planes take off during our whole stay so not noisy. Wonderful view across Reykjavik and the sea from the window (and ofcourse the airport!)
Walk from the centre can be long in the dark (about 20-30 mins) but the hotel run a free shuttle bus (last one leaves centre of reykjavik at 10.45pm) and the No16 bus also stops at the hotel so we only had to walk it a few times.

Great hotelfrom jim7
Nice and clean rooms, helpfull staff, great breakfast, indoor pool with a hot pot. The hotel is also 5 minutes walk to the Perlan where you can get a fine view of Reykjavik. Next to the reception you can also find Reykjavik Excursion´s desk where you can book your trips. Reykjavik is fantastic and so is the rest of Iceland. Do not miss to eat hot dog from Baejarins Bestu, just across the harbour.
Good choice but not midtownfrom Petteri
Breakfast is great, but there was quite a rush and sometimes it was a little bit confusing, too.
Everything worked fine and the price comparing to hotels in the city centre is very comparative. If you want to stay in the city centre, this is not your hotel - but then you should also pay much more.
Top Local Tips for Reykjavik
complimentary shuttle bus I recomend travellers make use of the complimentary shuttle bus the hotel provides. It will take you downtown and back several times a day.... saves you cash on taxis.....
Duty Free Buy food and drink at the Duty Free on arrival whilst waiting for your bags
Bring strong moisturiser It was very cold when we arrived 2 degrees and really sunny and a bit windy, so suffered wind burn. Bring moisturiser for your skin as it really dries out there.
