The Alda Hotel exudes style. Rooms in tones of grey are offset by contemporary lighting and brightly coloured seats. When you check in, you’re given a smartphone to use throughout your stay, which is a lovely touch. It’s really handy for looking up directions or making restaurant reservations.
Breakfast is served as a buffet. It’ll set you up perfectly for a day of exploring. Remember that as part of your holiday to Iceland, you’ll have two excursions included in your package, so it’s easy to see the country’s best bits.
At the end of your day, you can order drinks from the bar before heading to the lounge area to enjoy them. It’s a great place to relax after a day of exploring.
