A wonderful 4-night family stay as first-timers to Iceland. We were slightly apprehensive having read the good and less good reviews by others....but are now glad to add our 5-star endorsement to the list of happy visitors. We had a spacious ground-floor family room with 3 comfortable double beds. Reykjavik's hot water comes from a geothermal source, so there was an initial adjustment required to the slight smell of sulphur/rotten eggs each time we took a bath or shower (it'd be the same wherever you stayed in the city). We kept our passports etc locked away in the free wall safe. As attested by others, we found the hotel staff to be absolutely first class. Very professional, cheerful and helpful in answering all questions, booking trips, suggesting alternatives etc. In fact, we found every Icelander we met during our stay to be similarly friendly, positive and helpful (perhaps being such a small population, 330,000+ helps to create a more cohesive and supportive society?) We were bed & breakfast guests and looked forward each morning to the hotel's excellent buffet-type breakfast with its wide selection of good quality hot and cold food. We used the free gym downstairs to good effect with its modern equipment - and enjoyed an evening at the excellent local swimming pool which is 10 minutes walk from the hotel. This had a variety of pools, hot tubs, steam rooms etc and was a fun way to meet others (both tourists and icelanders). Yes, Iceland is eye-wateringly expensive for the uninitiated (as we were). This is not the hotel's fault; it's the same all over Reykjavik. You will find yourself doing quick exchange calculations to discover that beer is approx £10/pint (or wine even more per glass), so make sure to avail yourself of the 5-7pm happy hours at the hotel when you can halve that. We had one evening meal in the hotel, each enjoying the excellent burger, chips & salad from the reasonably (for Iceland) priced bar menu. Otherwise, a hot lunch or dinner in a very modest Reykjavik food outlet or restaurant can easily cost £20+ per person. No wonder there are so many 'Subway' outlets - including one very close to the hotel. The hotel provides a free shuttle bus service into town (3 times a day). Otherwise, it's a taxi or a 20-minute walk each way. The most direct walking route is along a fairly busy road, but there's a pleasant, slightly longer alternative along the sea-front, which includes their spectacular concert hall, which is free to enter, walk around, marvel at the architecture, avail yourselves of the WC etc. Next time we visit, we'd be very happy to return to the Grand Hotel, but would rent a car as a more flexible way to travel around. You do get a bit tired of walking in and out of the city....and a rental car would also save considerably on the cost of organised excursions. As an example, my wife and daughter had a terrific day excursion to visit and walk on a glacier, but at a cost of £180 each (!) I chose to spend the day back at the hotel catching up on reading and exercising in the hotel gym. With a rental car, we could have self-driven to the same location and seen and done most of the same things, waterfalls, hot springs (except the guided glacier walk) for a fraction of the cost. Similarly, the very popular 'Golden Circle' day trip is easily achievable in a rental car. That way you'll have more budget left for eating out. You'll need it. Sorry for the emphasis on Icelandic prices. Again, this is no reflection on the Grand Hotel which we are very happy to recommend as a great place to stay while visiting such a beautiful country and its friendly inhabitants. Collapse

After staying at a ghetto hotel in UK, I was impressed by Grand Hotel. Everything here, like the hotel, is GRAND. The room is very spacious and it's very clean. The staffs were very helpful. My husband and I booked this trip very last minute and every tour in Iceland were fully booked. "Johann" was very nice and tried his very best to see if there were any other tours available. I was very thankful for his effort. The only con about this hotel was the lagged wi-fi and also the breakfast buffet. I honestly don't think the buffet worth 3,500ISK. But I will definitely book with this hotel again. :) Collapse

This is a wonderful hotel. Walking into an enormous high glass ceiling reception area, spacious and laid out in modern decor. Our room on the 11th floor had fantastic views to the North and the high mountain ranges. The room was spotless and plenty of room. The breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. Every breakfast taste catered for, although I could not face the pickled herring. It can quite busy if there are lots of tours leaving at 0800-0900. We had breakfast at 0630-0730, for a more relaxed experience. The bar has a happy 2 hrs and it's 50% off, so quite good price for a drink. The direct walk into town is 20 mins and is fairly flat. The walk to the sea and into town can take about 35 min, but it is a lovely view across the bay. There is a free pre booked bus, but did not need it. Going on tours is really easy, transport comes to the entrance and you need to be outside ready to go. Lots of travel companies use the entrance, so just watch out for your transport. Would certainly stay here again. Collapse

Just wanted to visit here by chance than I bought a ticket here. Booked this hotel while arrived the airport. Everything is nice. The front desk is extremely friendly and helpful. and they sell stamps!!!! This is so important to me because I always send postcards to friends while traveling. God knows how difficulty to find the post office in Europe! Collapse
