I found Hotel Alda to have a really modern feel, without compromising on comfort. Located right on the main street in Reykjavik, you are steps away from great restaurants but we didnt hear a sound from our room. The quirky barbers and chocolate shop made for interesting talking points and it was nice to have the option to use the gym and sauna.

 Hotel Alda is located in the heart of Reykjavik, on the main shopping street, Laugavegur. Walk directly out your door to the best restaurants, bars and shopping.  Hotel Alda is a fun and fashionable hotel with all the modern amenities you could ever need. Your spacious room will be your oasis away from the busy city, and you can watch the world go by right from your bedroom window. It will be hard to ever leave the hotel as the restaurant offers delicious cuisine and the Barber bar serves delectable cocktails - both with a vibrant atmosphere. If you are looking for a post dinner sweet treat, stop by the hotel's chocolate shop!
