Iceland's National Day

We then walked the the United States Embassy and got to meet the working ambassador as there is no ambassador as we speak. A group from the University of Minnesota - Minneapolis were also there and so it was really great talking to them as they are learning Icelandic as well.

I went with a smaller group of Snorris to walk around downtown a little bit and explore before we had to walk back to meet up with everyone and then walk back downtown to eat at ...

Day 1: Under, over, and through

... So, museum #1 it is...

...well, where the heck is the entrance? Are we supposed to lift up the skylight? We see several big signs saying "871±2". Is that how much dinner is going to cost? Does that punctuation of a plus sign over a minus sign mean the same thing mathematically-literate North Americans expect, that it defines a range between 869 and 873?

... with your request." "I've read your email and I will respond to it later."

After my second email to the priest I got a response and he invited me for this upcoming friday to join him after the service, where he would be completely free to talk about Easter and the Iceland churching experience. Sometimes you just need a little bit more of perseverance I guess. I will get around this mańana mańana-attitude. I refuse to be ignored..

... sources, mainly geothermal and hydro energy supplies almost one hundred percent of the demand.
Next stop was Keriđ volcano crater which is the result of collapsed volcano filled with the rain watter. I've seen some volcano craters before, like for example the one in Ecuador - Quilotoa Lake and Oregon in the USA - Crater Lake. There are, however, in both cases much larger in scale. Therefore, I was not as surprised to see the lake here. The top of the crater edge offers ...

... we travel because I'm prone to picking up bugs and that's where loads of them love to live. I was assured by our hosts the water in Iceland was both safe, and the healthiest on the planet as it came straight from fresh springs to the tap. Sounded good to me so I took their advice. There was definitely an interesting smell in the apartment when we arrived but I hadn't figured out what it was. Were the neighbours boiling eggs perhaps? My first trip to the ...

    Good hotel - awful breakfast

    10 minutes walk from the city centre. Room was a good size and contemporary as requested. Friendly staff

    Breakfast menu needs improving- very limited selection and hot food was all pre-made and cold most mornings.

    A little unwelcoming from the outside. The hotel is more than like in the middle of a revamp with it fittings being an odd mixture of modern and early 70's wood paneling.
    Helpful friendly staff.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Saga Hotel, Reykjavik Reykjavík

    Enjoyed the Saga

    from

    My husband, our two sons and I stayed for two nights at the Saga. The room was quite nice and very clean. The beds were comfortable although the fact that the sun almost never set made sleeping a little difficult. As with other reviewers, I agree that the early check-in makes this hotel earn its ranking. We arrived early in the morning after an all night flight from Orlando. We are Floridians but the plane was full of families going home from holiday. With all the children on the plane, no one slept. When we arrived at the Saga we were immediately shown to our rooms. What a blessing. I also agree that the breakfast was very good, some of it was different from what we expect, but good. We rented a car for one night and the parking lot was more than adequate and free. The downtown area is very crowded and this is obviously a luxury. Enjoy your trip. It is a beautiful country.

    Special consideration

    from

    A previous Trip Advisor reviewer said that the Saga arranged for early morning arrivals to get into their rooms early or, if that was not possible, to get a complimentary breakfast while they waited. The complimentary breakfast was not agreed to (and we did ask), but they really hustled to get us a room as quickly as possible, so we could take a quick nap before spending the rest of the day at the Blue Lagoon -- a great combination antidote to jet lag after our 9:00 p.m. departure and overnight flight from NYC. The room was sparkling clean, terrific ocean view, great complimentary breakfasts for the rest of our stay. Service was excellent and the hotel is away from the the noise of the busier parts of town. The lobby is simple, the bar adequate, the restaurant fine. The Saga's competitive edge is their help getting you into your room hours before traditional check-in. There was a Rekjavik tours desk in the lobby and when we asked a question, we were treated with a terse response because we were not customers. We highly recommend Icelandic Excursions instead. Don't miss learning about Iceland's 13 Santas and the Hidden People. Wonderful people, great legends and sagas, fascinating scenery. We're so glad to went to England via the Iceland Airline's stopover plan!

    Just right for a nice vacation

    from

    We were on a 7 day holiday round iceland and we stayed the full time at the Saga.

    Reasonable and Comfortable

    from

    Spent 4 nights at the SAS Saga Hotel. To be honest we didn't stay in the hotel that much. With daylight effectively around 24 hours a day the tendency is to be out and about. The hotel is beyond the fringe of downtown which made it necessary to travel by taxi most times. Certainly walking is not out of the question, but for many people it would be too far to walk downtown. The hotel was quiet, clean and the staff unassuming. The rooms are quite small, even by European standards and I'll never get used to the twin bed concept, but the price of the hotel was very reasonable for Iceland (which is shockingly expensive), and included a buffet breakfast each morning. The offerings at the buffet take some getting used to, but the food was fresh and filling. One note of caution. The water from the tap in the bathrooms is scalding hot. Not the water in the shower which can be controlled, but just turning on the hot water in the bathroom sink could be dangerous if you are not careful. Would we stay here again..... yes, but would also likely explore other choices more central to downtown.

    1960s office block

    from

    We recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The general quality of the hotel is good - rooms quite large and clean with reasonable facilities, yet let down somewhat by the 1960s office block feel. I think the whole place needs a bit of refurbishment to return it to a luxury establishment as everything was slightly 'tired'.

    Easy access to central city (20 minutes walk), yet far enough away to not suffer from the noise problems of other establishments. Fine view from the top of the 7th floor of the moutains and sea surrounding the city.

    Food was good if a little anonymous. As is usual with hotels aimed a little more towards the 'business traveller', avoid the restaurant between 8-9:30AM. Its fighting room only! A tad busy.

    Beautiful hotel and great breakfasts!

    from

    We arrived late and decided there and then we had made the right choice, a stylish hotel at a reasonable price, perfect! The receptionist was kind and accommodating - just what you would expect! The room was clean and comfortable and had everything you would need. However the best bit of this hotel was by far the breakfast, so much variety and so much food, hot and cold. The restaurant on the lower floor was reasonable (for iceland) and delicious too. Thanks Saga for a lovely time.

    Chill Out in Iceland!.

    from

    I have been to Iceland 3 times now, and I seriously could not stay anywhere else then the Hotel Saga. The cleanliness of the hotel is 2nd to none, the staff are lovely, the rooms I have had have been quiet with nice views.

    Decent Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed here last weekend on our way back from mainland Europe since our Icelandair flight had a layover in Reykjavik. The hotel was clean and was a 15-minute walk to downtown Reykjavik. We had booked this hotel at a good price, considering how expensive Iceland is. However, there weren't any restaurants closeby, other than the hotel's, and we had wished that we had stayed closer to the "action," so if you want to be more centrally-located, look elsewhere.

    Hotel Rating in Iceland

    from

    I stayed here for three nights in early September. Considering how expensive everything in Iceland, including this hotel, is you might think this is a 4 or 5 star hotel like a Marriott or Hilton. My room had a style of perhaps 20 years ago and needed its carpet replaced (although I saw other rooms on the floor with newer carpets). The buffet breakfast was nice and the restaurant on the top floor was very good (although I was a guest at dinner and don't know the prices). My view looked out over part of the town and the ocean. It's about a 10 minute walk to the center of Reykjavik.

    What planet are we on!!

    from

    We just returned from a trip to London with a stopover in Iceland. This was an Icelandair package and we had a wonderful time in this very interesting country. We would never have visited this country had it not been for the Take-a-Break package. It is expensive (Food, tours, etc.) but for 3 days the experience in the very different country is worth it. Go there if you can. We stayed at the Radisson SAS Saga Hotel and it was very nice. They upgraded us to a Business Class room.Iceland is worth the time and you can break up the trans-atlantic flight by stopping over on your way home from Europe. Give it a try, bet you will like it!!
