We were travelling three together and just loved the stay. The room was new renovated and big. The view to the Glacier was indescribable. The staff was so nice and helpful. The breakfast was well stocked.

We spent 10 days in Iceland and I'm sorry to say, this was one of the worse hotels we've stayed at. First of all...it shouldn't be called a hotel! Rather a dormitory, on top of that unreasonably expensive. The staff was really impolite and the breakfast really poor. The shared toilets and bathrooms didn't even have the soap. The place... More

We didn't get a great introduction to this hotel because we were looking for Hotel Glacier, which is a name that this hotel also goes by (according to its stationery within it), but it's called Hotel Jokull on the sign outside - so we were looking for a sign that didn't exist. It now seems it also goes by a... More

Very straight forward Icelandic hotel. The accommodations are plain and functional but comfortable. We had a large room with a separate bedroom and a private bath. There were baths and shower facilities across the hall so not every room may get a bath. They had a large seafood buffet that night which looked very good but we wanted to try... More

3rd hotel on a tour round Iceland with stays in 7 different hotels. The hotel is located about 7 km west of Höfn (pronounced Hub) on 1 and fits the slogan 'Frozen in time' (on the bottles of Vatnajökull beer). The only place without GPS coordinates in my guidebook, look for the sign of Nesjahverfi village, hotel on the right... More

We wanted to get a hotel on the east side of Iceland as we were planning to see the iceberg and glaciers. This is one of the rare option that I found in that area for a reasonable price. I have to say that we were agreeably surprised ! First of all, when I reserved, I booked a room with... More

This place is just simple lodging and it suited our purposes perfectly! We arrived late, after dinner in Hofn and then left the next morning at 07:30am. We paid Euros cash and found it to be a great value. The front desk was helpful and accommodating - very kind & sweet. Some of the previous reviews are a bit harsh... More

We have now stayed at a number of guesthouses in rooms with shared facilities. This one is my least favorite. The rooms are outdated to the point that the walls have cracks with some things covering them and you see the old, stained mattress with just a sheet over it. The furnishings are worn and old. The rooms have no... More

Was a little unsure how we'd find this place as neither Google Maps or our Garmin GPS recognised the address and it also goes under two names which is also a little confusing (a third now looking at Tripadvisor). Whilst driving along just had to keep our eyes peeled & eventually saw the sign saying 'Hotel Jokull' - remember that... More

The room was small with virtually no amenities (such as TV or mini-fridge or coffee maker, etc). However, the room was clean and bright, and I would have probably rated the hotel average but for the fact that it did not have free Wi-Fi (or, indeed, any Wi-Fi) in the hotel rooms.
