The Radisson Blu Saga Reykjavik Hotel Review is part of the Whose Land? Iceland Trip Report which covers the following cities:
Getting There: The Saga Hotel is a twenty-minute walk from the city center or a five-minute taxi.
After a long day traveling to and from the Glacier Lagoon, I stopped at the hot dog spot one more time before checking out of the Radisson 1919. I took a taxi to the Saga Hotel and arrived at midnight with only 12 hours to spend there before heading to the airport. Since it was Sunday night and the bars closed at 1:30AM, I didn’t mind that I was not in the heart of the action. At the same time, there is a lobby bar with multiple TVs, perfect for watching GS’s meltdown in the NBA Finals.
The room was basic but the bed was a lot more comfortable than the 1919.
The bathroom was much smaller than the 1919 and had a spaceship for a shower.
The Hotel Itself
The hotel is old. There’s nothing wrong with it but I wouldn’t go out of my way to stay here, especially if I had to pay for the room.
Like the 1919, the service at this hotel was great. The front desk was very helpful in arranging the bus to the airport.
Like this review, my stay at the Saga Hotel was brief. If you have Club Carlson points to burn and don’t want to pay the premium for 1919 then this is a suitable option.
