Our small family stayed here on our final day after travelling around Iceland and it was pure magic.

I stayed here for one night and it was worth every penny! I arrived at approx 9am - too early for check in - however as premium admission to the Blue Lagoon is included in the price I took the opportunity to utilize this first. The very helpful man at reception immediately gave me the voucher, i left my luggage...

The rooms are great; comfortable, modern, spotlessly clean...the café was lovely to eat in in the evening and the reception was welcoming. There are comfy chairs around with blankets, relaxed friendly service, and the setting is...

We visited Silica Hotel when visiting the Blue lagoon. They have an own private less crowded area of the lagoon and it was perfect for couples that need private moments. We were enjoying their facitilities and we also experienced the northen lights during our night swim. Wonderful moment. Their restaurant is quite limited and not that cozy but breakfast was...

We stayed two nights at this hotel. The setting is gorgeous surrounded by Lava Fields covered in moss. The rooms are very comfortable and QUIET ! Your glass doors/windows over look the gorgeous lava fields with mountain in the background. Some rooms overlook a small lagoon. Breakfast was very good, eggs, bacon, sausage, beans, cheeses, breads, fruit, waffle maker, juices,...

The hotel was wonderful and the walk to the Blue Lagoon was lovely. The walk from the hotel to the Blue Lagoon, is approximately 10 minutes, by trail, through the...
