Positive Reviews

Excellent location

The Leifur Eiriksson is located right across from the Hallgrímskirkja, which is the largest church in Iceland. Guests have said that this church is visible all over the city, making it easy to find the hotel. It is also close to downtown Reykjavík, which gave guests plenty of dining and entertainment options while staying at this hotel.

Free hot drinks

A number of guests appreciated the free hot drinks in the lobby. These drinks, such as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, are available 24 hours per day and provide a nice bonus for guests of the property.

Good breakfast

The majority of guests were happy with the free breakfast that is available when staying at this property. While some guests mentioned that the room that hosts the breakfast is a little bit small, there are plenty of options available for even the pickiest of eaters.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms too small

Some past guests have complained that the bathrooms at Leifur Eiriksson are too small. This made it difficult for these guests to use the bathrooms, especially those who are a little larger than average.

Inconsistent Wi-Fi

Guests have complained that the Wi-Fi doesn't function the same everywhere in the hotel and, therefore, you might not have Wi-Fi access in some of the rooms. There is Wi-Fi in the lobby, but guests have mentioned that there aren't many seats there.

No lift on property

This property doesn't have a lift, which bothered some guests who were staying on the upper floors. Keep this in mind if you struggle with stairs, as there will be some climbing involved if you are staying in one of the higher units.
