Nice modern hotel situated in the country with 12 km to nearest town, Höfn. It has a nice view over the landscape from most rooms. The room we got was nicely and modern furnished, and had a kettle for making coffee and the. Nice bathroom. Fine service from reception. The breakfast buffet was disappointing compared to what we have seen... More

When they told me I'm staying in a Casual Inn, I was expecting a 3 star hotel but it turns out, it is a 4 star to me. Great room layout. Small but very well thought. There's a sink at the bedroom area where you can wash your cups or whatever. Bar stool great chair for you to work on... More

We spent two nights at the Fosshotel Vatnajokull about 6 km from the town of Hofn. The hotel is a very modern and spacious building. It has a large lobby and bar area as well as a restaurant featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. Our room was on the 2nd floor and provided great views of the glaciers in the area (when they... More

Fosshotel Vatnajökull is part of a chain of Icelandic hotels that capitalize on the dramatic and dynamic scenery of Iceland's landscape. For our trip to Iceland, we stayed in two of their properties, with the Vatnajökull one being my favorite. The hotel sits just off the main highway that skirts the island's coast, the 1. On a small rise, the... More

Just between the gigantic glaciers and the small town of Höfn you will find a beautiful hotel which blends in perfectly with its surroundings due to the nice architecture and decent coloring. And it is just as beautiful from the inside with very nice furniture and lamps. But most spectacular is the view, especially towards the glaciers on one side... More

I had an amazing corner suite with superb views into the valley and on to the glacier. Our group had three additional rooms - two of the deluxe doubles, and one of the 'standard' rooms. This is a wonderful hotel - I have to disagree with the few negative comments here. The separate toilet room is a European convention that... More

This is our 2nd visit to this hotel. We came back for the view and found a fully renovated hotel. We stayed in one of the suites and enjoyed an outstanding view of the glacier. Good value when compared to other prices in Iceland. Approx 1 hour from Glacier Lagoon and only 10 minutes from Hofn. Can happily recommend this... More

The hotel is situated just outside Hofn in the countryside. Surprisingly it was very modern! Our room had a stunning view of the Vatnajokull glacier which was a beautiful sight to wake up to in the morning! There was a large variety of wholesome breakfast, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The WIFI is very strong only in... More

We liked everything about this hotel. Our room was large, clean, with modern furniture and a beautiful view. Bathroom was spacious, with underfloor heating which was so enjoyable. Breakfast was also great; they offer a wide range of items served in a room with the fantastic view of the snow-covered mountains. I highly recommend this hotel. A useful advice: hotels... More

Nice newly built design hotel in the usually dull panorama of hotels in Iceland. Nice rooms with good features. Good food at the restaurant both for dinner and breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful.
