Winter Wonderland

A travel blog entry by oliver10

We arrived at lunchtime on Boxing Day following an early morning flight from Bristol. After lunch at the airport we took the afternoon Reykjavik Excursions bus (3600 ISK) to the Blue Lagoon (33 EUR) about 20 minutes away. It was a quick dash from the building into the lagoon given it was just below freezing outside but once in the 37 degree pool …

Beautiful Iceland

I am ever so grateful that it's cheaper to have a lay over in Iceland than it is to fly direct from New York to London, I'm just wishing I had more time here to explore. It's such a beautiful country and at this time of year there's a sprinkling of snow and ice everywhere and the winter twilight is dawning. At present it's dark until just after 9am …

The Golden Circle Tour

... told Chris I wanted to go. We trudged out into the crazy weather and the three minute walk took us closer to ten. Pushing through such high wind gusts and snow slapping you in the face was both difficult and scary but worth it once we'd seen the falls. How spectacular they were in the wild weather with their snowy mountain backdrop. I was glad we made it down but couldn't stand it more than a few minutes so we had to head back. A much easier walk with the wind at ...

A Little Like Home

... living city. Less of a tourist/old town vibe. It feels more real. And even though tourism is Iceland's second biggest industry, it doesn't feel pushy. We clicked with the city right away. I think coming from where we do, having the snow and small living cities, it really made us miss home. More than I expected. We walked around and found a really cool pub called Lebowski bar (after The Big Lebowski), which is our friend SóI's absolute favourite, ...

... building was still under construction which meant there was only one shop and one restaurant. It was very busy.

I had some Icelandic money, Krona, left over from my previous visit. We worked out we had about 35pence (GBP) so we had to find something we could afford. We managed to find a chocolate bar (see photos).

    Great breakfasts - lots of crispy bacon and scrambled egg! Clean room although the extra bed wasn't set up in ours when we arrived - the hotel sorted it out quickly. Great location with lots of restaurants and bars close by and easy to walk up the main street.

    Historical Traveler Reviews CenterHotel Plaza Reykjavík

    Bumped us despite PRE-PAID reservation

    from

    This isn't a review, it is a more of a warning.

    Good location, nice rooms, friendly staff

    from

    Stayed at Icelandic Plaza for a one-week holiday in May. We booked it three months in advance and got a (compared to other hotels in Reykjavik) very reasonably priced room facing away from the streets surrounding the hotel. That was a defintive advantage because the streets can get very noisy during Reykjavik's party nights.

    Disappointed

    from

    I had booked a three-night stay at the Plaza but ended up staying only one night. The pluses: The hotel is in a very central location in downtown Reykjavik, right next to the tourist information center and within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants, shops and bars. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. There is also a computer with free Internet access for hotel guests in a room near the lobby. The minuses: The hotel lobby smelled like stale cigarette smoke; the beds were way too soft -- so much so that I woke up with a backache; and the room seemed like it belonged in an average, inexpensive American chain hotel. When paying $300 per night, I was expecting much more. Also, the hotel is directly across the street from a small park/plaza, which turns into a central meeting place at night and was very noisy. After one night at the Plaza, we checked into the Nordica, which was less expensive and a far superior hotel.

    Great location, great value

    from

    Stayed 4 nights at the end of May. We arrived early and were able to check in at 09:30.

    The hotel is very clean, rooms have hardwood floors and include free wireless internet.

    Breakfast includes cereals, yogurts, breads, meats & cheeses, eggs, bacon & sausage, free beverages. The hotel is directly next door to the tourist information center and a 5 minute walk to the harbor if you do a whale watch. Also less than a few minutes walk to the liquor store, 10-11 supermarket, post office, lake, and several trendy cafes and bars.

    I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Great Location

    Excellent in every respect but a personal quite picky detail , the beds are MUCH MUCH TOO SOFT

    If you have a back problem request a hard bed

    Great Location

    from

    Excellent Location!!! Rooms are small. Skip the breakfast and go the cafe near hotel Borg. Staff were warm and friendly. A good value and I would stay there again.

    Fantastic, friendly and convenient

    from

    We stayed at The Hotel Plaza for 5 nights. The staff were really friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. The room was spacious and well appointed. The location is great, right in the centre of town with the Tourist centre next door and restaraunts all around. The breakfasts were also great. Highly recommended!

    Excellent hotel, perfect location

    from

    Booked into Leifur Eriksson but was moved to Plaza as they were full.

    Plaza is right in the centre of Reykjavik - near the main shopping street, walking distance to sights and near loads of restaurants. The hotel was lovely - big rooms, kettle and coffee in the room, fantastic buffet breakfast and we had a big picture window overlooking the main square. Great for sitting with coffee and people watching!

    The staff were really helpful and friendly - we had excursions booked and were worried they would not know we had changed hotel and they telephoned for us to sort it all out.

    You will not be dissapointed

    from

    I stayed there in the third jan 2006 .this is only 81 rooms,s hotel but is full of life , so you are more special .the hotel very clean, the location excelent very close to the biggest shop and their best restaurant. and the staff are very helpfull and they arrange for all you activity as they did with mine if you choose.they have computer for there customer to use at no charge or wi-fi if you have your laptop.and the breakfast very good (inc fresh hot french pastry......).

    Not a better location in town...

    from

    We were upgraded from the Metropolitan hotel to the Plaza after the Metro oversold despite our confirmed reservation there. I don't think there's a hotel in town that has a more central location than the Plaza. A very friendly (and good looking) staff, good breakfast buffet and comfortable rooms. Not sure what the normal rate per night is, but considering we were paying for a 3 star and received a 4 star hotel, I can't complain. If you have the money and want to walk short distances, you can't go wrong with the Plaza.
