TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Holt Reykjavík
This hotel is conveniently located and adequately comfortable. That's pretty much all we needed in Reykjavik. Don't expect any "frills", but the premises are quite pleasant (lots of Icelandic art in the hotel - apparently the original owner was a collector). It has a restaurant and bar on premises. We have not tried the restaurant, but I had the worst red wine in my life at their bar. I don't remember if it was Cabernet or Shiraz, but it should have been called "vinegar". And I should have sent it back, but it was a family gathering and I did not want to spoil the mood. I don't know if it was an isolated occasion or was representative of the bar selection - ever since I kept my drinking business elsewhere.
Breakfast was average. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful.

... The trip has been very good and my favourite thing has been seeing the waterfalls and the geyser. Tomorrow we're going whale watching and shopping, and I'm really looking forward to it. Tia Atkins
The trip has been amazing so far. I'm looking forward to Friday when we'll be going to the blue lagoon. Hopefully we won't smell of rotten eggs when we get out. - India Pappas
We docked in Reykjavik overnight so we were free to leave the ship any time. Our trip to the Blue Lagoon was not part of an excursion so after stopping for coffee at the Cove Cafe we left the ship and took a taxi to the bus terminal where we caught the bus to the Blue Lagoon. The Lagoon is about 30 minutes from the city through barren moss covered lava fields. We were on one of the first buses to arrive at the lagoon which is large natural geothermal pool ...
... to the Thingvellir National Park, the signage doesn't seem to be always an Icelandic strong point. Another World Heritage site to add to our list! This park is sited on the actual rift between the European and American plates; Thingvellir is the most important cultural heritage site in Iceland. The Althing (General Assembly) was established here in 930 and continued meeting for more than 850 years until 1798. It was held at the Lögberg (Law Rock). ...
