We paid 170 euros to stay in a hostel-look-a-like. You can hear the neighbours chew, the reception staff is not very friendly. The 'spa' is ok: Jacuzzi (whicih did not work) and a sauna. If you have choice to stay somewhere else, please do. Worth 60 euros, definitely not more then that.

The only selling point of this hotel is its location near Skaftafell National Park. Otherwise, it's an overpriced, out-of-date tourist trap that serves bad food. Given its location, it attracts many large tour buses and customer service has suffered as a result. The receptionist was disagreeable at check in and check out. The rooms have shared bathrooms which are smelly...

This is one of few hotels located near Skaftafell National Park and just a short drive away from the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This hotel has the hostel feeling, the only hotel feeling that it gives is the price. Toilets are shared and the rooms are small. Breakfast was basic but good enough.

With its location- it could be a very cute hotel, but instead it has a cheap hostel feel. The dinner in the restaurant was ok- asparagus soup was quite nice. The lighting however was too bright at night creating no atmosphere and giving us headaches. Breakfast was good but basic- cereal, yoghurts, bread and meats. Rooms are basic for the...

We stayed here just one night. We had a cabin with shared bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the view was lovely. There were sheep just outside of the cabin, The meals were delicious and we were completely satisfied,.

We got a friendlh welcome. Tiny room but ok for 1 night. Shared bathroom was clean with hairdryer. Wifi works well. Dinner expensive and disappointing. Breakfast less than basic. Please note that they charge your credit card before arrival (booked via booking.com). This is the only hotel in this area and too expensive. Staff very friendly and helpful.

We booked a self drive package through Icelandic Air and were booked here as part of the package. It was by far the worst hotel in our nine night stay. The help was rude to us and other guests on the phone as we checked in. They were difficult to communicate with, it appears to be a family affair ,...

The condition of the hotel is fine. The decoration of the lobby is nice, and the views outside the hotel are nice. The breakfast was my favorite part. Aside from that, everything else is poor. The rooms feel small with three beds. The price of the room is very expensive considering that we had to share bathrooms with many other...

Hotels in Iceland are slightly strange because there are quite simply not enough of them. This one is no different. The main building with the dining facilities is a few minutes walk from the outlying building where the rooms are. Some of the rooms are even in some very nice "sheds". The food is pretty good but not brilliant and...

Very simple accomodation in this hotel. Easy to find from the main road as the have big sign. They serve quite good breakfast in German style. Free wi-fi everywhere. Rooms can be more clean. Many groups. Poor sound isolation in small houses. Nice surroundings and cozy common areas.
