Very modern and really new hotel, with a very sophisticated feel. Best room I stayed in during my whole trip: relatively big, great shower, great bed and even a bar to sit at. Breakfast was OK, but my overall feeling was very positive. It's a mystery for me why they built this hotel at this particular spot though. Nothing in... More

Super hotel- very modern , good beds, super shower and bath area. Very sophisticated decor, but no light in the dashing sink area! Hotel has been refurbished and deserves higher ranking than just 3* Highly recommended! Breakfast was nice, but not more than that.

Our photo group stayed here for 4 nights while on a photo shoot. The hotel opened on June 8th and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are well appointed. The shower is great with lots of hot water. The restaurant is good and the breakfast too. What is best is that the employees are very professional and friendly. The wifi does... More

Due to miscommunication on-line the Fosshotel Vatnajokull did not have our reservation when we arrived. After straightening out the error the hotel staff was very conscientious about getting us another room. We were upgraded to a lovely Jr. Suite on the ground floor. The decor was bright, fashionable and modern. One wall was entirely glass and accessed the outdoors and... More

Lovely modern hotel with fantastic views. Clean, comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. This is a gem of a hotel outside of Reykjavik, and the outstanding view of the glacier just makes it even more enjoyable. A short drive to the Hof harbour where you can get wonderful seafood meals.

We were scheduled to stay here on a Thursday and Friday evening. We had done a very intense excursion that included a vigorous walk across a lava field. The person staying with us had a accident on the Wednesday before and we had to cancel the reservation. They had a 2 day notice for canceling the reservations. They would not... More

The rooms are on the expensive side and the hotel is indeed in the middle of nowhere. We chose this hotel because we need to do a ice cave exploration and this is the nearest hotel to the glacier lagoon, which was the agreed meeting place for the ice cave exploration. The hotel is near the glacier and you can... More
