Like many other before, I wanted to see what a Viking Hotel was! Well, its not much really that different, its not cheap, Euro 127 for a small double room, breakfast included as if its a big deal. The worst thing that happened was the bumping noise from the laundry, which unknown to us was opposite our room and someone... More

We just spent 5 days at this hotel. It is clean and the staff are helpful. Be aware that there is no bar, or restaurant, on site....it is across the road. The price of food and drink (across the island) is extraordinarily expensive. The hot water smells like rotten eggs. We had a fab holiday, but be prepared to spend... More

The Viking Village Hotel was a nice hotel. About 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik, and 40 minutes from the airport, it is situated nicely across the street from the harbor of Hafnarfjordur. I booked the hotel because it seemed like a fun idea on our last night in Iceland to stay at a themed place. What can I say, I... More

Me and my partner have just come back from a 4 night stay at the Viking hotel, it is brilliantly themed and so quirky. If you like old styes and a rustic feel then this is for you. It's not a glamours style hotel, it's better! It's clean. We stayed in one of the cottages that are only as I... More

Nice looking building with classic architecture but that's about it. The very small, closet-sized standard-double rooms are high priced for what you are getting at $100.00usd per night. Cottages are the better choice for space, but these are about 188.00usd per night. Rooms were otherwise clean, but cold with no in-room thermostat for heating. In our small room we could... More

This is not the hotel to stay in if you are looking for luxury, however, we found it clean and had what we needed to have a lovely stay in Iceland. The room had one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on and I slept like a baby. There is a kitchen area with a microwave but although... More

Viking style...check, apparently clean...check. And from here we go down hill. The place is full of clutter that hasn't been moved in years, u can smell the dust, and despite the place is reasonably clean in surface if moving something or looking deeper you are in for a nasty surprise. The room was clean but kept on creating condensation every... More

I've done the whole golden circle tour of Iceland, and stayed at a lot of different types of hotels - big and small, in cities and in rural Iceland. My stay at Hotel Viking was the literal bottom of the barrel of my trip to Iceland. When my family and I checked in, we received very rude and poor treatment.... More

A cosy and a warm place to stay with great staff with warm attitude. In the restaurant you can eat almost anything from burgers to a real icelandic old food (and it's very special. I really recommend everyone to try it)
