Stayed here on a recent school visit. Kids loved the hotel, great rooms, especially the apartments. Friendly and helpful staff, lovely food served for dinner and breakfast. Reasonable packed lunches. Nice and quiet hotel (even with 50 school girls staying there!). Very fast wifi even with all the kids using it!

I chose this hotel for the price and the fact it had private en suite bathrooms and free wifi. It is situated about 12 K out of Reykjavik but the bus ride is very easy and convenient as well as cheap. I was traveling alone to see some sights for a brief 2 night stay. The desk service was polite... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week during our holiday. Breakfast was not super, but still all what we needed. The staff was superb, allways helpful and smiling. Helped us in all our requests with good solutions all the way. I wouldn't hesitate to come back some time. :)

We had a very disappointing experience with the Hotel Hafnarfjordur. The front desk tried to pull a fast one by downgrading our room from superior singles to twins. When we rejected this, there were all kinds of excuses (we really did not understand why) and then we finally go the rooms we booked. But quite frankly, this hotel does not... More

The only way to describe this hotel is a dorm or hostel that claim to be hotel. The room is one relatively large space packed with beds all around with a kitchen cabinet as part of the same space. Luckily, the bathroom is separated from the rest of the room. Breakfast is minimal in a basement hall, with no windows,... More

I returned from my first trip to Iceland just a few days ago. My flight arrived at 6:15 a.m., and I arrived at the hotel around 9 a.m. Despite check-in not beginning until 2 p.m., they did their best to get me into my room as quickly as possible, and had me in my room by 10:30 a.m.; something they...

Located in a business/commercial area with plenty free car parking and a 10/15 min walk from the harbour in the town where there are several good restaurants. Close to the hotel restaurants looked uninspiring. Room Ikea style with fridge, microwave, kettle, pans etc. Reasonably priced for Iceland. Stayed 3 nights and breakfast good but same every day. Fresh and replenished... More

This was our last hotel that we stayed in whilst in Iceland. This was a very nice hotel and 6 of us shared a farly large room - I'm sure that the room was only designed to hold 4 people!!! This was a very clean hotel and we benefit from a lovely 'pasta bake' evening meal with a vegetarian choice.... More

We stayed here for three nights and were very impressed.The rooms were great, absolutely immaculate. I have never stayed in a cleaner hotel. The room was very spacious with four beds and even a small kitchen. A complimentary genuine Icelandic breakfast is served in the morning, which is very good. My only complaint would be that the location of the... More
