This hotel was booked for us by the Nordic Visitor's Center and it turned out to be our favorite hotel of the trip. Although we only had a standard room, it was big enough for us. The view from our room was great and the view from the lobby and restaurant was stupendous. The hotel was exceptionally clean. We arrived... More

As you walk into the reception area it is easy to ignore the reception desk and just gape at the view from.the window. This is a well designed hotel. The food was good, we enjoyed talking to the 3 Spanish waitress sisters (bizarre in this remote context). The rooms and beds were clean, comfortable and stylish. Balcony with a glass... More

I had been looking forward to staying at this hotel as it has had good write ups, and the reception are promised well, with friendly staff and a pleasant open plan lounge and restaurant area. The food, if somewhat pricy, was good too. The lounge area had lovely views, it is true, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the... More

The staff at Vatnajokull were extremely kind and helpful. The room was fabulous and had a great view of the glacier. We arrived on a beautiful sunny day so had a gorgeous view. The amenities (bar/restaurant) were very nice. They gave us an upgrade to 2 suites...very, very nice rooms. The only possible downside is that this is a stop... More

Very comfortable and quiet hotel, very beautiful location and amazing view, friendly and great staff, lovely rooms, new, trendy , very clean and very tasteful . Breakfast and dinners were excellent, very good kitchen. My favourite hotel and perhaps the best hotel I had in Iceland..( price/quality) ..lucky we could stay 2 nights there .

This was perhaps our favorite hotel in Iceland. We traveled well across the southern coast ending our journey east at this beautiful and comfortable hotel. I believe that this hotel lacked a "tired feeling" that we did experienced at other hotels. My wife and my room adjoined our three teen children who all loved the accomodations. We chose to eat...

The hotel was very comfortable. We had two rooms across the hall from each other, so we had views from both sides--both were gorgeous (one room faced the mountains and the waterfalls, while the other had the view of glaciers and plains). The rooms were nicely furnished, clean and spacious. The rain shower was nice, as was the heated tiled... More

This was the nicest hotel we stayed at during our Iceland trip. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but the views are fantastic. We arrived late and the only room left was a suite, which was amazing, but we peaked in one of the "normal" rooms and they were more standard but nice. The lobby was great and... More

We booked a triple but were given a double disabled with a put-me-up bed. The room was fine (clean, modern) with good views, but there wasn't a shower curtain and so everything in the bathroom got wet when anyone had a shower: toilet paper, towels, etc. I have stayed in disabled rooms previously and each has had a shower curtain...

this hotel looks nothing like the pictures on the web site as its been modernised and upgraded. Our room was clean and modern - quite spacious - but we were woken up at sunrise by the badly fitted curtains which have a huge gap at one side. Please deal with this Fosshotels. Your guests arrive here exhausted and need quality... More
