I stayed at Grand for 3 nights in February 2018 with a group of friends. The rooms were by far the best we had in our 1 week trip in Iceland, spacious and with good views. The hotel lobby was always buzzing, the breakfast spread was great, and the food was pretty good. They also have an early breakfast spread for people who leave for the airport after 3.30 AM, which is so very kind of them. The only downside is the distance of the hotel from Downtown, for which they do provide a one way shuttle about 5 times a day. Collapse
Good hotel at a good location

I have always wanted to travel to Iceland as part of my 'bucket list' and we chose this hotel as our base for the 3 nights we stayed in Reykjavik. Our first impressions were favourable in that this is a modern hotel which is located just outside of the centre of town. We had room 1250 which gave stunning views to the East of Reykjavik towards the volcanic ranges in the distance. There was also a welcoming letter from the hotel wishing me a happy birthday which was a really nice personal touch. The room is modern and the bed has individual duvets which makes for a great nights sleep. There is a courtesy bus service laid on by the hotel into town, however, it is a nice 15/20 minute walk along the designated walkway straight to Laugavegur which is the main shopping/eating street. There were a couple of issues, namely dirty bed linen and having been missed off the breakfast list, however, they were resolved were quickly with an apology of a bottle of wine which was a nice gesture. As for the staff, all were incredibly friendly and polite and a credit to the hotel. All the tour operators that we used, picked up and dropped us off at the hotel as part of their service. We had a 0430 pick up for the airport and the hotel laid on a continental breakfast for those leaving early. We had a fantastic time and plan to return to Reykjavik in the future and will definitely use the hotel again. Collapse

The hotel is wonderfull, great atrium with bar, the staff is very kind and helpfull. As well the conciere helps you to define your trip, as the weather is changing a lot, they can advise if driving is safe, or which roads might be closed. The breakfast is good too. The rooms are spacious and welcoming. The beds are comfortable. Great choise. Collapse

We arrived early evening and were automatically greeted at reception. The whole front reception area of the hotel is warm, inviting and well decorated. Our room was fresh, bright, modern and had everything we needed. We were travelling for our anniversary and were treated with a gift and special note from hotel staff and management which was very thoughtful! Throughout our stay staff were so friendly and helped us in any way they could! Breakfast each morning had a good selection and although it was only one way so we had to make our own way back, the free shuttle bus to town was very handy. Collapse

Let’s start with our experience... We arrived in Iceland and with our tour operator had a bus from the airport to the Hotel arranged. A nice set up as the journey will take between 30mins-50mins by coach from the Airport of Keflavik. If you don't have a transfer booked you can always grab the Flybus which will take you near the centre of Reykjavik tourist area (BSI Bus Terminal, you can go most places from here) or the Grayline which will drop you towards the far end of Reyjavik. Either way they will cost you about 3,300K - 3,900K (approx. £25.00) for a return journey. Anyway, I digress... Our tour operator dropped off various people to various Hotels along the route, we were one of the last and much as the other hotels looked lovely this one looked extraordinary and I am happy to report that it was more than a pretty face. Also having one distinct advantage that the hotels lacked, the space for a coach to pull in. Many of the Hotels had to drop people a bit away from the entrance and although a small thing it was a small luxury I occasionally enjoyed. Plus if you're doing excursions it makes keeping an eye out for your coach really easy. Entering the building the lobby was warm, welcoming and light with some very comfortable sofas. Straight over to reception to see the smiley staff and checked with ease. Our room wasn't ready which is the norm for hotels before 2pm so they kindly stored our luggage and we headed over to the source of all knowledge in hotels... The Concierge. The Concierge Johaan gave us a book of discounts, maps and advice, knowledge and history of Reykjavik plus a few pointers on excursions. Manned with our new found information and a little hotel exploring later we had a coffee until our room was ready. The staff came and told us the room was ready to go so we headed up there and it was lovely. Huge double bed with oddly folded individual duvets but we've come to find that is quite normal and no one steals anyone's blanket, genius I tell you! Personally I loved the bins... General, Recycling and Food Waste in the room. Travel Tip: Leave your clothes on the heated bench for an extra warm start to the day and hang your wet clothes over the bath on a clothes hanger and damp clothes on the towel rail.(Might seem obvious but suggested it to an American couple whose faces lit up like we had explained the meaning of the Universe). The bathroom again clean and spacious and I will be honest but the sulphur smelling water is something that takes a while to get used to but after a day and when you realise that you come out the shower clean and not actually smelling of rotten eggs you don't notice it that much. The cold water is a different matter, perfect and tasty. You have one reason to purchase bottled water in Iceland; so that you have something to refill. Travel Tip: Take an empty drinks bottle with you, weighs nothing, saves money and most shops and restaurants will top it up for you. The Breakfast is utterly amazing. I personally went for the Skyr with dried Fruit and Nuts and then a fried breakfast. My girlfriend is a coeliac and we were happy to find that there was an entire Gluten Free section for breakfast. So people needing a lack of Gluten... you're in luck! Each table comes equipped with a jug of fresh coffee, there is a coffee machine at the entrance and take away coffee if you fancy it. Yes it would seem Icelandic people love coffee. Good for me! Make sure you take advantage of the Cod Liver Oil (Lysi), fill a shot glass and take a slice of lemon. It doesn't taste bad here, truly, nothing like it does at home. Do it like Tequilla, except without the Salt. So down the shot, eat the lemon and your body will thank you. Travel Tip: You'll see it in many reviews and it is certainly true. Food in Iceland can be expensive in Iceland so load up at Breakfast time. Eggs, Nuts are high in good fats that will take longer to breakdown, yoghurt is full of slow digesting proteins. Bacon is really tasty and that's good enough. Except for Coffee you can't take the food with you but while you're in there the food is great so enjoy! Location: I've seen a lot of reviews saying about how long the shuttle bus wait is and how far from town it is. Truth be told; You DO NOT need a shuttle bus unless you have problems walking. You can get to the closest edge of Laugavegur (High Street) in about 15 minutes at a leisurely stroll. 25 minutes and you're in the heart of it. If you're like us and decide to not go directly there turn right out the hotel and walk down the waterfront until you get to the Harpa Concert Hall. which is right next to the centre of town that'll take you about 45 minutes. The location of this hotel is excellent! Close enough to town that you can easily walk in various ways but just far enough away that you can explore. It backs onto a national park with pool, a Zoo in it and an sculpture museum. About 15 minutes walk away you have Kringlan Shopping Mall, The Perlan which is about 30 mins away or 45 to the BSI Bus Terminal. Carry on that way and you again end up in the centre of town as part of a loop. The staff at the hotel were wonderful and more helpful than I could ever ask, nothing was too much for them. There was a wonderful lady at the breakfast reception desk that greeted us each day, until we decided we wanted to know her name to say thank you then obviously it must have been her days off. But look out for her, she's great and smiley. I really liked this Hotel and would recommend it to anyone without a second thought. Much as I love to explore on my next visit I will definitely be heading back to The Grand. Collapse
