My wife and I stayed in the suite here and it was extremely refreshing - The best hotel we stayed at on our trip to Iceland. If you stay in a suite, make sure you get the second floor! The hotel was clean, the views were stunning, and the food was delicious. There isn't really much else around the area... More

I'm glad the previous reviewers had a good stay at this hotel because I certainly did not. We were in Iceland for five weeks and this is by far the worse experience we had overall. The building looks nice and is newly built (mostly), but it takes more than a beautiful building to make for a pleasant stay. It started... More

Stayed here 3 nights on our two week Iceland trip. Great hotel, new and beautiful. We took the upgrade for a suite and what a great call that was. A great spacious room that had a sitting area and most importantly after a lot of hiking a soaker tub as well as a phenomenal shower. The hotel is about 10... More

Just like other guests' comment, you will be surprise when you enter the room because it's really modern and new hotel in middle of nowhere place. The view is beautiful There is kettle, fridge and TV in the room. The only one disadvantage are the bathroom and wifi signal. There is no towel hook in the bathroom and no wall... More

We stayed at Fosshotel outside Höfn for one night and we were surprised by how nice this hotel was. Breakfast was good, the room excellent as well as the service. It is approximately 7 km from Höfn and it has very nice nature surrounding the hotel.

This is a nice hotel, seems new, clean, beautiful views. However, my one complaint is that breakfast didn't start until 8:00! Which may seem like an odd complaint, but I like to get an early start, and had a long drive that particular day. Worked out okay - another group crashed the time (started earlier) so I joined them.

The good stuff: a) Got a free upgrade and was given the suite and an extra bed for our son for free. The view was magnificent b) My husband left his scarf at the hotel and I called them to ask them to courier it back to us in Malaysia and they were so kind about going the extra mile... More

I was driving for a week around the entire island and Höfn came up about 3 or 4 days into my trip. The quality of most hotels around Iceland are somewhat average, however, the new extension at Fosshotel Vatnajokull is modern and frankly breath-taking with the view. The staff were incredibly helpful and very personable. I had the misfortune of... More

The good: ...The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, from check-in till check-out. ...The room was clean, with a comfortable bed, new tv with a diversity of channels, and a hot shower. The challenges: ... The breakfast spread was weak by comparison to all others we had along our trip. The offerings were much the same as others, but the... More

Stayed one night and was very pleased. Clean rooms, great staff and good breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel! It's only a ten minute drive into Hofn. Beautiful views from the rooms! And a 40 minute drive to Vatnajokull Glacier.
