A rather basic but decent place, looks a bit dated but has an authentic, Icelandic rural feel to it. Close to the Vatnajokull national park and many amazing places, it is a good platform for sightseeing. Helpful staff and nice settings.

Checked in on 10/2/16 A forgettable but necessary one night stop after a long day. After carrying three suitcases up and down a set of stairs we made it to our room. It did not look like any of the rooms featured in their website. The only memorable moment that night was the good meal at the Humarhöfnin Veitingahús restaurant... More

The staff were very nice. They gave us a recommendations for restaurants if we didn't want to eat at the hotel. The lady at reception also gave us a quick over view with the map. Our room was large and clean, the bed comfy. The shower doors didn't close all the way, so the floor got a little wet. The... More

Our guesthouse in Hofn ended up closing early for the season so our reservation was transferred here, meaning I didn't quite know what to expect since I didn't choose it myself! The entire interior - from the foyer, to the front desk, the carpet, staircase, room furnishings, etc - all are fairly outdated and the place just needs some new... More

We got the last room at the last minute. Kind of the theme of our trip, given we drove all night to get to the next place. That said, the room was adequate. Bathroom average. Breakfast was a large buffet. along with about 3 bus loads of tourists. Value and quality was off

The hotel itself looks nice, good breakfast and nice dining room / premises. The room was small and basic, but the worst was the shared door with the adjacent room. We could hear people in the other room through late into the night. Definitely annoying.

The rooms are rather small but, adequate. The staff is unbelievably efficient, cheerful and go out of their way to help a guest. We wanted to go to Netto (grocery store) but, it was so windy that we asked a staff to call a taxi. Of course there was no such service but, one of the staff volunteered to drive... More

The check-in experience was let down by the fact that I had to wait 15 minutes with another couple trying to check-in because there was no one at the front desk. This seems like hotel 101. When we finally checked in and given a room key, there was a long climb up some stairs because of the lack of an... More

At almost $300 per night, it struck me as a ridiculous price for what one was getting. We had a double room, which turned out to be in one of the outbuildings.

We stayed one night on a ring road tour of Iceland. We were given a room in the annex across the road from the hotel. The rooms were fine, warm, comfortable beds. Bathroom very clean but akward , small shower. Breakfast was included and was okay - most of the similar style hotels on our 12 day trip had better.... More
