It's just not acceptable to let two lots of guests wait around two hours for their rooms to be made available. If you advertise that rooms are available from 3pm, then they should be available. If they are not, you should be honest and say, sorry, we got it wrong. Not "oh, they will be ready in 10 mins" and...

The bed was okay, the breakfast was good too. But for dinner menu, they put prawn inside a small dish of pasta and call it lobster. It was quite disappointing and I won't go there if it wasn't a tour.

We stayed here as part of our tour - the hotel has a service available where they call you if they see the Northern Lights, so you don't have to stay up all night waiting! Unfortunately, the cloud cover was quite bad during our stay, so we did not receive any call. The room is comfortable, with cozy sitting areas...

We were booked here through a travel company so we didn't really have a choice. The place doesn't have an elevator and even if you are on the first floor, you have to go up and then back down stairs with your luggage. The room was tiny even for Iceland standards. When we walked in, the bathroom had hair all...

Our travel company booked this hotel for us, I wish we would have found a hotel ourselves. Started off by having to lug our luggage up and down stairs, even though we were staying on the first floor. Apparently they can't create a hallway without stairs, or with an elevator. We then had to stay in a "two twin" room...

We stayed 1 night on our tour around Iceland. The rooms were fine for our quick overnight. The restaurant was great for dinner with lots of variety and breakfast was good too. It would be a good place to use as a base to see the Southeastern corner of Iceland. The staff is very friendly and helpful with ideas. Like...

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...

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...

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...
