We stayed here for 5 nights in April 2015. Extremely lovely and helpful staff. Location = EXCELLENT! Close to the airport and everything else. We were able to do most of the adventures in south Iceland - longest drive = 3 hours. We even got to see the northen lights from our bedroom! A large shopping centre very close. Lots... More

Excellent hotel. We stayed here for our honeymoon for a week and the location and staff were excellent. The hotel itself is around 20 minutes away from central Reykjavik, but is far enough out to be completely quiet at night. There are fantastic views from most rooms over the lake and the rooms themselves were clean and comfortable. The owner... More

We stayed in Kriunes in April 2015 for three nights, and loved every moment of it. Beautiful views of the lake, very friendly staff, and just an overall pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to explore Reykjavik area.

The hotel is located in Kopavagur which is a 10 minute drive from Reykjavik city center. We visited Iceland during a cold and windy March but were thrilled to stay at this hotel. The service is warm and friendly and remember to take the room with a lake side view. It was completely frozen when we visited but it's apparently... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was clean, comfortable and cosy. Yes, the location is outside of Reyjavik city centre but there are buses to get there if you didn't hire a car. The bus stop is about 10-15 min walk away where you will have to catch two buses to get into town. For us, it... More

This family run hotel is in an idyllic position, overlooking the lake. Beautiful at any time of the year. A relaxing environment with very helpful staff, Nothing is too much trouble. The home cooked food was good value and beautifully cooked. Just remember to let them know in the morning if you wish to eat there in the evening, as... More

Why quirky? Well this hotel had a really unusual layout - it works well and the rooms spread out on both sides of the communal areas which are very comfortable with great views. There are also hot tubs and a sauna for guest use. The food is home cooked and very good - definitely recommended - but give them warning... More

We arrived at the hotel late afternoon and checked in by a lovely blond girl ,,, the owners daughter. The room we were given was good with en suite. The hotel is a bit out of the center of the city but with a little help from the receptionist we made a 10 minute walk to the bus stop and... More

Can't be more complimentary about this hotel; lovely location, very helpful and friendly staff who cant do enough to help, even knocked on our door to tell us The Northern Lights were out so we could see them for free from our hotel whereas some tourists pay a fortune for trips with no guarantee that they will see them!
