Situated on a quiet street, just two minutes’ walk from Laugavegur shopping street, Hotel Klettur is a modest, clean and comfortable hotel that takes its name from a rock bursting through the wall – rumoured to be left in situ due to Icelandic superstition surrounding elves and their rocky dwellings.
The hotel has 86 clean and bright rooms, all with private bathrooms, refrigerators, flat screen televisions and free internet access.
Upgrading to a Deluxe room means either a sea view or a private balcony with a wonderful view over the city. Be sure to fill up on the buffet-style continental breakfast before a busy day of sightseeing.
Try a traditional Icelandic beer at the hotel bar, open 5pm – 10pm every evening, before making use of the great city centre location to dine out in some of Reykjavík’s most popular restaurants. Regent recommends nearby Potturinn og Pannan – the Pot and Pan restaurant – for good value traditional Icelandic fare with a relaxed atmosphere.
