          The Hotel Frón is on a busy street so try to get a room that faces the back. We found our room to be clean and comfortable and quiet. There were plenty of choices for breakfast, served 7:30-9:30. This is not a fancy upscale hotel, just clean, comfortable and central. It's close to lots of shopping, the old harbour, the Harpa Cultural Centre and Reykjavik's iconic church. All within walking distance.

          Hot in Iceland

          What an odd experience our stay at Hotel Fron was. Great location. Big room. Excellent wifi. Decent breakfast.

          But... when you're given directions of go to the fourth floor then up the steps to the fifth floor the feeling you're staying in the attic ends up being true. Room 420 is on a strange floor of five rooms up some narrow steps under the eaves of one part of a hotel of many parts. The room itself was big, we had heaps of room for our mountain of stuff but it, and the whole floor, was ridiculously hot. When you have to leave both of the room windows open to cool it down, in Reykjavik, you know it's hot.

          Then there's the noise. Thursday morning is garbage day. Leave the window open to keep the room cool and you're subjected to the noise of an amazing procession of garbage trucks emptying the bins of the hotel and surrounding bars and restaurants. That's after the screaming and shouting patrons of those same bars have finally headed home/back to their lodgings. It was earplugs in for the rest of our stay.

          Finally it's the service. Everywhere in Iceland we experienced the warmest of welcomes and service. Not here. I don't think I saw one staff member smile in three days. Bizarre. I'd stay for the location, the room size and the facilities, but not the service. Most important of all request a room that is not facing Laugavegur.

          Cheap and basic. Really good location. Breakfast was pretty poor. They also do not allow you to eat breakfast there on the day of your arrival (even if it is before breakfast hours).

          Although a great central location, this hotel was dated and did not have good bedding . The front desk staff were less than helpful most of the time. This was re-emphasized in our last day when our airport shuttle failed to show and we ended up hailing a shuttle bus - with neither assistance nor concern from Hotel Fron staff.

          Our time in the north is over and Reykjavik is calling. We didn't get back to Akureyri until after 7 the night before so didn’t get our breakfast order in. Nevertheless, the wonderful Edda said "of course you can" when I asked if we could have some breakfast (after apologising for not requesting it yesterday) and …

We wandered through the Old Harbour taking in the tourist and industrial areas – funny what you can find on the outskirts of 'tourist town’ – a store called Farmer’s Market with some very nice sweaters, also an ice cream shop, pastries and even the …
