Nice downtown hotel
Overall it was good! Room structure was bit interesting and it is bit noisy during the evening on Saturday but it is central location with value of money ☺️

Disappointing but Great Price and Location
First off, I want to say that we would stay here again because of the price and location amd the fact that we were looking for nothing more than a place to sleep with a private bathroom and breakfast. Great location and great price. On a street with shopping and restaurants. Close walking distance to sights. But with that said I don't want to oversell the experience. The room was small. It wasn't dirty, but it was definitely older and not totally clean. The hot water did have a strong sulfur smell which apparently isn't uncommon in Iceland because of the geothermal energy, but none of our other hotels during our stay had that smell. Staff didn't really engage with us unless we initialed. They weren't rude but didn't acknowledge us for the most part. Breakfast was enough for us to be satisfied, but not many options. Interesting hotel layout. We were on the 4th floor which had an elevator to it, but to get to our room we had to walk up 2 sets of stairs. One had about 5 steps the other had about 10 steps. The street in front is a pedestrian only street so we had to park our car and then walk to the hotel. Overall, an older, no frills hotel, but a great location and price. If that's what you are looking for, this place is great. If you want an outstanding hotel, this is not it.

The property was lovely. There were some cleanliness issues with the room but that wasn’t a huge deal. Additionally, the venue next door was loud and the windows are thin so you can hear the music play- though I had ear plugs so it wasn’t a big deal.

Looks are deceiving. From the front it doesn’t look anything special, same can be said for the Lounge entrance, that said everything else is excellent. The hotel is right on the middle of the main shopping area. Great for restaurants, bars and shopping. Rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Breakfast is continental but lots of choice. You can have an evening meal in the restaurant which could easily be rated amongst Michelin standards. We were in the annexe building so may have been even better had we stayed in the main building.

Hotel Fron is centrally located with shopping, bars, and restaurants within a few steps from the front door. Bus Stop 6 is also less than a10 minute walk. Conveniently located, Hotel Fron offers clean, confortable rooms. I was particularly happy with the front desk clerk who was able to accommodate an early check-in for me in January. Moreover, he was able to change my reservation so that I did not have to change rooms the two nights I stayed.
