Lobby was nice enough, staff was nice and helpful. Room felt like a cheap hostel, old curtains, old bedding and furniture, tv had one channel. Bathroom was ok. Room was clean but the hotel felt deserted like something out of the movie "The Shining". Spend a little extra and stay in the city center by the shops and restaurants. Would not recommend. To top it off, I am traveling with my travel agent friend, who booked at a travel agent rate - shouldn't the hotel want her to recommend the hotel and... Read more

Spent 3 nights in Radisson Blu Saga Hotel. The hotel is 15 minutes outside the centre of town, in a very pleasant area with a super view from the high floors, but we may have liked a more convent location. The hotel rooms are comfortable, but need refreshed. Bathroom very clean, with ample toiletries and towels. Breakfast offers a good selection. Did not eat in the Hotel for an evening meal. Staff very helpful and friendly.

How Radisson can allow this run down decrepit old hotel to use its name is beyond me. 315 USD per night for a dirty old hotel with out dated and worn furnishings. Badly located, rude staff, blow flys in the room, curtains that won't close properly, unfashionable, over priced and just plain nasty in all respects. Radisson you should be ashamed.

This is a no go for us, actually one of the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel is really old and lack basic maintenance: no light in the corridor (yes!!!), very tired bedroom with stains everywhere, old furnitures, TV not working ect... They should close this hotel for renovation. On the + side: breakfast and location were good.

Rent a car if you wish to stay at Radisson Blu Saga. Plenty of parking. Otherwise, be prepared to walk to the city center. However, it's near to the Iceland National Museum where you can get to know much of the history of Iceland up to its present time. Choose the Radisson Blu 1919 for city center location when not renting a car.

There was major construction works going on in the hotel so the spa, fitness centre and pool was closed. Our room was supposed to be in the newly renovated part of the hotel and all I can say is that I would not have liked to have seen it before. Dirty mattresses that could be seen through the thin sheets that were even ripped. !!!!!

We stayed at the Radisson blu saga, which is part of the Carlson club chain, while in Reykjavik on business. The location is not the most convenient to town, although you can walk there in about 10 to 15 minutes. The hotel itself is currently being renovated, so there was a lot of construction noise throughout the day. The beds were very comfortable and the blackout curtain certainly helped with the midnight sun. The room looked worn. The bathtub is high to climb into and was very slippery. The ... Read more

We had asked for our hotels to be in the city center and were surprised this was on the outskirts next to some construction. The walk back into town is about 10-15 minutes so not bad and was good exercise. The two times we checked in we were greeted by friendly staff and made to feel welcome. They answered our questions and suggested things to do. The bar area offers comfortable seating and the bar staff is friendly.

The room was comfortable and clean but unspectacular. The breakfast was excellent, as was the buffet dinner. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The TV reception was poor, freezing every few minutes. The internet was poor and somewhat intermittent. However, we would certainly use the hotel again because of the convenience of location, being a shortish walk into town and also to the local outdoor heated pool.

An old fashioned slightly shabby hotel that needs updating. Staying in June meant long hours of daylight and the curtains were not up to the job, they didn't keep the light out and did not make for a good night‚??s rest. Also walls thin so woken by to in next room very early in the morning, presumably also unable to sleep because of the light. On the plus side the staff were charming and the breakfasts good.

It's a very old hotel, smelly, with a very poor internet service. There is a big gap between the hotel pictures and the reality. Location is ok... it's a quite zone walking distance from commercial and touristic area.

This Hotel is low class for Radisson. Everything you want from a high class hotel is there. But everything is old and and in a '70 style. The room we stayed in was OK but again, damn old equipment. The bathroom is equipped with an old fashion bathtub where you can hardly take a shower. Dear Management of Radisson either you close it, sell it or perform a total restoration because this is not what a Radisson guest expects from your hotel.

In the 60's or 70's this was probably a great place. But now? Peeling paint inside and out. Door that need to be refinished. Bathrooms that look like they haven't been updated since the 70's. No air conditioning in the rooms. Most of the time in Reykjavik that's probably not an issue. But we were there in July. And it was hot. They gave us a fan for the room, but during the day time, it just wasn't enough. Internet connectivity was spotty as well. When we called the "one touch servic... Read more

If you are used to staying in Radisson Blu hotels around the world, be prepared for shock and disappointment if you choose to stay at the Radisson Blu Saga, Reykjavik.

Very different product than the Radisson Blu product in the US, but comfortable and very pleasant and helpful staff. Has a mid-century modern feel and could use some refreshing in the common areas. Feels a bit like a converted conference center hotel. Rooms were very generously sized. Food was excellent, with breakfast included. Prices were high for a la carte dining, but then prices were high for everything we purchased in Iceland, so that shouldn't detract from overall rating.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. There is a convenience store, a bank, and a movie theatre within a one block walk. Maybe a 15 minute walk to the center of the city. I recommend immediately getting walking directions to the city so you can explore. The property itself is a bit dated and worn - it gets heavy use and shows it. It's not bad per se, just heavily used. Breakfast is well done - pot of coffee dropped off at table as soon as you sit down, then a well-stocked buffet.

The Blue Saga hotel has seen better days and is due for a rejuvination. The hallways carpets are slightly discolored with an interesting pattern all the way down- at least on the 4th floor. There were tiles missing in the bathroom wall against the floor although a few were on the floor behind the door. The room was clean and comfortable and the beds just fine. The breakfast buffet was about $25 and was good the first couple of days but the items never changed. Location was a brief 15 minute walk... Read more

Booked this via Expedia and did not really know what to expect. The staff are very friendly but the hotel is dated and needs refurbishment. We booked a business room 562 which was slightly better furnished that our friends. Sadly the bath was chipped and it was shocking to find a pair of ladies underwear in the wardrobe. We left these for the hotel to deal with. The beds were OK and everything else in the room worked. WiFi on arrival was great then on day 2 seemed to have been switched off whi... Read more

My husband and I booked this hotel as part of a package through Icelandair. The hotel, while it could use some room updates, was clean and conveniently located right next to the National Museum. It is a short 10-15 minute walk to the main downtown attractions. Excursions from multiple companies pick up from the hotel's lobby, so they're very easy as well. The tourism boom has made this a very busy location, but the staff was still very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The included brea... Read more

What a shame I have to write this review marking the overall rating as 'average'. This hotel was actually lovely but our experience with the receptionists ruined it for us. I had specifically requested a 'quiet' room as myself and my sister had travelled with my elderly mum to realise a dream of seeing the Northern Lights. However on our first night's stay, having travelled all day, and just returned from a Northern Lights trip, we went to our rooms at approximately 1am There was a party/e... Read more

Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but it is clean, the beds were comfy and the staff was quite pleasant. I had the foresite to book my room for the night before my arrival. I new my flight would arrive at 5:00 am and that way, I was assured I could get right into a room. I was traveling with a friend and we found that our tourist class room was smaller than we liked. We ask to pay for an upgrade and we were given a suite for only $106 more per night. I was certainly worth the extra cost.

This hotel was fine, however needs an upgrade. As a Radisson hotel you would expect a bit more, not water stained carpeting and old bathrooms. The biggest problem was that every day, a plane load of tired and grumpy Americans arrive at 9am only to be told that their rooms are NOT available until 2pm!!! Said Americans then complain loudly to staff who can give them nothing....and aggravation ensues! Radisson should provide some accommodation for these travelers, a large room to relax in or a br...

I went there with my wife and it was wonderful. On our arrival our room was ready and was much bigger than I thought. The room nr. is 355 so if you need a tip top room this is the room. Very good shower and very good bed. Breakfast was excellent and enough of everything. Went to the bar and it was very good - relaxed and very good service. But we also went to Grillid and it was amazing - so thank you people of Hotel Saga.

We spent 3 nights at the Radisson Blu Saga last week. Perfect hotel in all aspects. Great buffet breakfast with loads of choice. Perfectly clean room and when we informed reception of a draughty window it was fixed within hours. We ate in the restaurant and bar and both were perfect. The evening buffet is very varied and food is very good. The staff were second to none and we had drinks in the bar every evening. A special word of thanks to Gudmunder, the barman, a total gentleman that went about... Read more

The Saga is obviously a hotel that has been around for quite some time-the building itself looks good but all of the furnishings are well worn. Be that as it may, however, the hotel still makes a good showing for itself. The restaurants, especially breakfast, are first class and the staff are excellent. It is a great compromise for price and location. Its cheaper because its not in the city center, but the center is only a quick 15 minutes walk away. Even better, the municipal pool/hot spri...

Let's start with the positives - and the positives are really good: 1. I was booking with hotel points - there were no standard rooms available for the duration of our stay and I didn't have enough points for 7 nights in business class, so I booked 6 nights business class and one night standard but was not keen on moving rooms halfway through so asked to be put on a waiting list for a standard room, instead the management offered to upgrade our last night for us. 2. Breakfast!!! One of the best... Read more

We stayed here as part of a tour package and generally it was okay. We had booked a twin room and asked for it to be next to our friends who were travelling with us, but they put us in a double room on the other side of the hotel and on a different floor! Reception couldn't move us until the 2nd night as the Hotel was full. But then the twin room they moved us to was very small and in need of a refurb! So, we moved back to our 1st room. To compensate us they gave us a meal voucher and we had the... Read more

This hotel was basic enough for a 4*, the windows were old & draughty but it was a great location with only a 10min walk to the city centre. The breakfast buffet was by far the best part of our stay, huge variety of food & drinks & plenty of very helpful staff to assist if needed. The bar was very expensive & not a great variety of food or snacks. I'm a coeliac & one of the bar staff had absolutely no idea what I was talking about when I was trying to ask a question about one of the dishes, in ... Read more

We are checking out of this hotel and firstly the positives the location is ok, in the quieter part and 15 minute walk to the centre. They have wifi although it wasn't a great signal or fast enough to use to book tours. On that note don't use the tour shop in the hotel it's more expensive than booking online, pre-plan and book your tours. We wanted to do snow mobiling and they told us it only goes as part of a more expensive golden circle tour which we had already done, we said we've seen others... Read more

I have stayed in several Radisson hotels around the Nordic countries and Scandinavia and found them to be everyting from ok to fantastic. I am sorry to say that this hotel however is the black sheep of the chain. CHECK IN: Check-in took almost an hour due to a long que and what I guess was an inefficant system. Every evening I noticed the same long que so this was not a one night thing. ROOM: Beds were really hard and sheets was some strange cottonblend which disnt do well for the sleep The... Read more

Arrived early in the morning. The 1st person checking me in said no rooms available, luckily a more experienced person checked me in and found a room. Well the room is clean and comfortable, but run down. I was very disappointed in the condition of this hotel. The days in I stayed in a few nights ago in Florida was in better shape. Radisson management, if you read these reviews maybe acknowledge them and do something about the sad shape of your hotel.

I book this hotel for the reason it had a spa. Got an email 1 week before to say its under construction.. didn't get offered our free pool voucher to compensate. Also there was a nasty bug going about ( not hotels fault ) but at least they could put soap in the toilets For the money nope not worth it. Best bit was having a relaxing bath with the bath salts

I don't usually write reviews but felt strongly about this one.... I've seen a lot of bad reviews with this hotel and simply don't understand how?! Check in was smooth and our room was readily available the room was clean and tidy had towels a mini fridge a safe, not only a kettle and coffee making facilities but a nespresso machine. The breakfast in the morning was included in the price paid for the hotel stay we paid £340 for three nights so £56 per person per night, and the breakfast alone ... Read more

We booked three rooms for five people through a tour group. We were very happy with the tour group but not the hotel. The lobby isn't too bad but once you leave the elevator to walk down the hallway to your room, you will see dirty, ripped wallpaper, old doors, leading to small rooms. We had three rooms, a single on floor 7, and two doubles on floor 5. On the positive, they all had nice views, but since it was dark most of the time that benefit wasn't apparent. The showers on the fifth floor... Read more
