We had a great four days at Hotel Hlid. We chose the hotel for it's convenience to the outdoor sights - Golden Circle to the north, waterfalls and the coast to the east and south, but still close enough for a day in Reykjavik. The good buffet breakfast, tasty dinners a good travel advice from the owner added to the...

We run a travel company in Iceland and are there 3 months year. This is the first time we have stayed here. Easy to find, close to Hvergerdi but fare enough away to be quiet. Lovely accommodation, friendly staff and friendly chickens. Recommended

Hotel rooms look a bit tired and could use some refurbishing, although they were fully functional. Hotel staff is helpful and try to arrange something if you ask them. Dinner was nicely prepared by the chef and he made us feel at home (not many rooms occupied that night). Breakfast is buffet, nothing spectacular. Overall nice stay if you are...

A cosy little hotel run by a helpful staff. The rooms are small and simple but clean. The breakfast is o.k but nothing exceptional. Dinner in the restaurant was very nice. The location and surrounding area is beautiful and the drive from Keflavik airport was breathtaking.

Thank you so much for your nice words. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the area and the surroundings, and I recommend to all to drive thou Grindavik (road number 43 and then 427) from the airport.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough for tourists looking to see the major sights. With most overcast weather and snow during our visit, we were lucky enough to see Aurora Borealis from our window earlier in the morning. Other travelers at the same time weren't so lucky. Arni Bjorn is a wonderful host, and an excellent chef, could go as far...

A very pleasant hotel, the room was very spacious and had a lovely view of a mountain out of the window. The bathroom was very clean and I really enjoyed the under floor heating and the hot showers. The hotel was very quiet, and the food was excellent.

The room and bathroom were very spacious and the beds were comfy. Food was lovely with lots of choices, the warm bread was the best. Situated in a peaceful location. Only reason it's not 5 stars is due to the very very slow wifi, but not surprising as there was a group of 30 of us.
