We stayed here for 5 days break with my fab friends in March 2017. It was clean and tidy with very patient and helpful staff and funny staff, The hotel is away from .the bright lights of Reykjavik however once you have been to Reykjavik in my opinion you have done that part of the break full of arty shops . The artefacts and carved wooden furniture in the hotel were just amazing, a real change from the cool Nordic decor you might expect in Iceland. You saw something every day. Breakfast was good and also try the Fjorukrain viking restaurant across the road, owned by the Hotel. Our room did the job clean and fresh linen every day.
There is a hot tub outside so you can sit and relax in the steam, in the snow surrounded by volcanic rocks. There's also a sauna for guests, have a go! It's free! Look for the artefacts around the hot tub and the little quirky ornaments they get you talking. Again the staff were helpful and polite lighting candles around the hot tub for us.
Stayed March 2017, travelled with friends

Room Tip: Eat at the Tuk Tuk restraunt real good value for money.

Nice quirky hotel, loved the architecture and style. We had a cabin for 4 of us - 2 adults 2 children (14 & 11). Plenty of room for us, clean, beds very comfy, duvets thick and warm. There was a fridge which was great for drinks and snacks etc which we took on our day trips. Small but perfectly formed bathroom with hairdryer and under floor heating. Only given cups and towels for 2, but once asked for more they arrived quickly.
All staff were very friendly and polite. Did not eat in the restaurant, only had a drink, but the food looked good.
Small but nice hot tub and sauna. Wifi very hit and miss.
There is a small shopping mall few mins walk away but shops not very exciting. Domino pizza is close by too.
7-8 min walk is Kronan supermarket.
Gray line tour company picked up/ dropped off for all our trips and Fly bus to airport stops opposite. Buses to Reykjavik just outside.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with family

Far better than any basic decor, this hotel adds a certain something to your stay. We emailed a couple of weeks in advance for a room overlooking the harbour and were accomodated. Our room was suitably sized for two people and offered great views both during the day and for watching the Northern Lights at night time. The bed was most comfotable and everything was crisp and clean.
Plenty of English language TV channels.
Breakfast was served up to 10.00 a.m. which was great if you needed a lie in following the northern lights excursion. It was continental type and was plentifull. The only hot food being porridge and toast
The staff were great and very helpful with bus times and advice. We prefer to stay outside cities and travel in when we want. This hotel is just down the road from the bus stop to Reyjavik and took about 30-40 minsutes to get there.

Food at the restaurant was of excelent quality and again there was plenty of it., with a Viking musician often in attentance.

Suggest you book all your trips before you travel and be aware that both food and drinks in Iceland are very expensive by UK standards.

Following a massive record snowfall in recent years, the whole experience was fantastic. Well done.

Room Tip: Great view over looking the harbour, but some minor road noise at rush hour.

Stayed for long weekend with friends. We were in a "double room"  which was very small for 2 people. The room was clean but very basic and overlooked the car park.  The bathroom was also very small and basic and the decor/fittings reminded me of a caravan. The shower was small with just a curtain, but the water was always hot. The breakfast was okay but also basic (there is a theme here!) It's about a 20 minute bus journey into Reykjavik. It's worth going into Reykjavik as the hotel is quite remote and there is not a lot to do in Hafnarfjordur especially on an evening. I would not stay here again and if visiting the area again I would definitely choose a hotel in Reykjavik itself.
