Looking for recommendations for mid range price, central location, near bus stop hotels in Reyjkavik for early summer travel. Thanks for your help!
We booked at Reykjavik Centrum for this spring after looking at hotels for several days. It seems to meet your requirements too.
I support Suki's vote as well. Reykjavik Centrum is a good hotel.
Last time we stayed at the 4th Floor Hotel and this time we will be at the Loki 101 Guesthouse.
I have stayed at the Canopy three times. It is a wonderful hotel with an amazing included breakfast. Centrally located.
However, it is the noisiest hotel I have every stayed at. Especially on weekends with clubs all around.
I won't be staying there again due to the noise. But if outside noise doesn't bother you, it's a good choice.
mikliz97 mentioned Loki 101 Guesthouse, which I stayed at for 10 days back in August. I loved it -- perfect location. It is right at the Hallgrímskirkja and the no.8 tour bus/company pick up location, and two doors down from Cafe Loki, as well as a central location for walking to other areas of Reykjavík.
I would only caution though that anyone looking for a hotel and standard hotel amenities, should be aware that Loki 101 is a guesthouse. Key is that the bathrooms are shared facilities. On the other hand guests have a fully equipped kitchen, which I thoroughly enjoyed having available.
Reykjavik is so compact (and bus accessible) that you likely won't get a mid-range hotel right on the main commercial drag (Laugavegur) even nearby streets. I would check out what's on booking.com and even look at airbnb in a residential part of the city. It's immensely walkable but lodging is super expensive (and will be especially at the time you're going).
VAP--Yes, your posts definitely influenced our decision to stay there:)
We were booked to stay at Reykjavik Centrum before canceling our trip in June. It has good reviews.
Loki 101 Guesthouse contacted us a while ago and they have closed permanently. We rebooked with Hotel Fron. This was probably a month or so ago, and at that time, there were not many places left that were not absolutely insanely priced. We are still unsure if we will make this trip due to Covid, but are keeping our fingers crossed.
We stayed at Hotel Fron in the summer of 2018. Our only complaint was that the breakfast room was too small and understaffed. If the hotel isn't at full capacity, that shouldn't be a problem.
Maybe not as centrally located as you might like, but right by a bus stop and less expensive, we stayed at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica. We thoroughly it.
I stayed at Center Hotel Plaza in late October last year. Great location, comfortable, not super expensive, reliable (and the same) breakfast every day. Close to bus stop #1 at City Hall. No parking on site, so if you're getting a car, it might not be a good idea.
We have stayed at apartments which we found on booking.com.
