So much fun! We went on a rainy day after walking around all afternoon just to check it out. Lots of nice people both local and tourist, everything is lovely and clean (if crowded).Bring your own towel to save a couple bucks, but you can get bathing suits and towels there if you forget!
This public swimming pool in the center of Reykjavik is in my eyes the best in the area. Not as crowded as the slightly bigger ones and with a lovely outdoor area. There is a sauna, a steam bath, several hot tubs and two swimming pools for actual swimming and one additional pool for children or rather babies. The price is really cheap, like all the public pools in Iceland. Also the 'rules' are the same, but they are explained quite extensively, so don't worry about them. The shower area could be cleaner, therefore only 4 stars. Otherwise i really enjoyed it and can definitely recommend this pool.
If you don’t know the process, be aware it’s a little different than what foreigners may be used to! A couple other reviews explain it pretty well. Has indoor and outdoor pools as well as hot tubs at 39 and 42 C and a cold tub around 10-12 C.
The most clean public swimming pool I have ever visited! It’s very cozy that the small hot tubs are placed on the roof.
If you visit Iceland, check out this great local bath. It’s only about $10, bring your own towel and swimsuit or you can rent.
