"Everything is hay during the hard times."

This was the first stop on my study abroad adventure. I flew Icelandic Air, and with that airline you have to have a layover in Iceland when coming from the USA. I decided that if I was going to have a layover, I might as well to a stop over. The airline does not charge any extra fees for this, so if you have the time I would highly recommend it. A …

Iceland is a nice land

A travel blog entry by jollyjetsetter

One of the truly great factors about travelling overseas is that it provides ample scope for seeking out the bizarre and unconventional, and I maintain to this very day that there are two places visited to date which I classify as being strangely singular, one of the them being the Japanese island of Okinawa (the home of karate), the other being …

Iceland trip

A travel blog entry by alymar

Travelled to Iceland with friends. We flew into Reykjavik and travelled for hours to see the geysirs, waterfalls, craters and ride the snowmobiles. The best part of it is seeing the Northern lights outside Reykjavik, freezing @-15 degrees temperature.

    Amazing Stay

    This was a great Hotel to stay at. I took a red eye from Boston to Iceland, and arrived at my hotel at 0730. I was able to fully check into my room and eat breakfast for free. The hotel staff also helped me with setting up transportation to the airport.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bjork Reykjavík

    Top hotel

    from

    This is a clean and comfortable hotel situated approximately 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of Reykjavik (depending on which part you want). We had a sea view from our room window. The staff were extremely helpful more than happy to book any tours you wish to go on. There is free internet access from reception. The room had tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, tv and shower gel but no fridge or mini bar. The hotel does have a restaurant which provides all meals of the day but we did not eat there so can`t comment on that. Overall an excellent choice of hotel.

    Hotel Bjorks an excellent place to stay

    from

    Where to start, a fab clean small hotel. Very similar to a travel lodge if you need to compare standards. With v.v. comfortable bed..

    The room was spotless and was kept that way by the housekeeping staff (not us!!!) the reception staff was very helpful and knowledgeable and helped us book all our trips. The inclusive breakfast was a real bonus (1 less v.v. expensive meal to pay for!!) and the 10 minute walk into town or back was welcome after many hours sitting on coach tours..

    But don't judge this hotel by the pictures, they don't do it justice, forget kerb appeal, it's not the Icelandic way.. Just book a room and spend the extra on your trips and tours...

    Excellent value

    from

    Just want to agree with everything the other reviews say except that you need to do the glacier trip as well, it was awe inspiring. You can't see the northern lights if you go after the 15th April, the excursions finish then until the winter time. Also at this time of year you can only see the minke whales so its best to leave that trip til summer time. We had to leave at 5am to get an early flight back and we were still provided with breakfast, a nice touch.

    Good Quality Hotel

    from

    Good quality hotel close to town - you are about 50m from the end of the main shopping street but following the Saebraut round is more attractive if marginally longer. Staff are excellent and the rooms are spotlessly clean. My bed was a bit soft for me but the rest of the facilities were excellent. No it doesn't have a bar, but you can purchase drinks in the restaurant and from reception if you are desperate- and there are supermarkets close by where you can buy beer.

    Excellent Budget Hotel

    from

    A small, but spotlessly clean hotel with minimalist Icelandic style décor. Very helpful staff, which all speak fluent English, and are happy to book excursions for you, or give you directions. Reasonable spacious rooms with nice bathrooms, (English channels) and a kettle. The 'continental' buffet breakfast is served in the Hotels own restaurant and is very good. Its inclusion saves you a lot of money. The Hotel is ten minutes from the main shopping street. The walk feels very safe. In fact the Bjork is the best budget hotel that I've ever stayed in.

    Only one problem!

    from

    This hotel does not have a bar! Cannot fault this hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. Reception staff were very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful. Only about a 10 minute walk in to town. As I say, the only problem is that the hotel does not have a bar.

    Immaculate inside

    from

    We stayed three nights in January and everything about the hotel was excellent: rooms were large and warm (good central heating), clean bathrooms, very modern reception area with helpful staff, large selection at buffet breakfast, parking right outside the door (although only space for a few cars but you can easily park around the corner). It's about 10 minutes walk from the centre which might be the only downside but actually it was quite nice to see the rest of the town. Would definitely stay there again.

    Fantastic Hotel

    from

    Stayed in this Hotel for 4 nights in January 2006 and i have to say it was basic but really good value for money. Iceland is a very expensive place but the food and people are fantastic. All speak English and are very friendly.Breakfast is included when staying at this hotel which is a real bonus because of the price of food and drink.The rooms are really comfortable and warm,lovely beds and really nice bathrooms.

    Not too bad, not amazing

    from

    I booked this hotel after searching endlessly for decent but reasonably priced accommodation in Reykjavik for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. It was expensive by european standards but very reasonable for Iceland. The reception area was very chic and modern, the staff freindly and courteous [unlike alot of the locals we met] and the breakfast is varied and tasty with breads, cheeses, fruits, veg, meats, fish, eggs and pastries. The rooms were a bit of a dissapointment, smaller than I expected with the decor very standard, unlike the reception area. we had two beds pushed together rather than a double as requested. we had a large window with a very nice view of the bay, and the bathroom was perfectly functional. Although the hotel is not bang in the centre, it is as close as you will get for this price. It was about a 10-15 minute stroll to downtown and the main drag. All in all, not too bad at all.

    Pleasant and close to town

    from

    We stayed here in February 2005 and found it clean, pleasant and close to Reykavik town centre. The room was of a very good size and well heated and it has a great restaurant attached to it - "Pots and Pans" - remember though, that all meals in Iceland are expensive!
