Recently refurbiished, this centrally located hotel is a very good base from which to explore Heimaey. So it is a pity that in the upgrading the owners allowed some design faults in the en-suite bathroom. In the bathroom adjacent to the room I occupied, the very flimsy thin plastic toilet seat had broken from its hinges, a bracket at the... More

I had room 309 which had great views of the town and the volcano. It has a door to a balcony which is is also accessible from the hallway. I never saw anyone on it, though. The room is in the “old” section of the hotel, but it was nicely appointed. Big, flat-screen TV, Scandinavian-designed furniture, including a desk and... More

During my trip to Iceland last month, my friend and I stayed at this hotel and hostel the first night we got into Iceland. We actually stayed in the hostel portion and the room was very comfy. It was tucked away in the corner wiith two single beds and enough room to set down our things. I would recommend paying... More

We stayed two nights in Hotel Vestmannaeyjar and we thought the stay was good. The hotel is located in a good central location and you can get to most of the island by walking from the hotel. The rooms were clean and modern and the reception was very helpful in giving us information on where to eat and where to... More

We found this hotel comfortable, clean and welcoming. It was convenient for the harbour and the town centre. Our spacious room had views of "the Pompeii of the North" and the volcano of Eldfell. The breakfast, served in the restaurant, was excellent with a varied choice of food. We felt that the room was short of coat hangers but we... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Vestmannaeyjar and our visit to Heimaey. The staff was very helpful and took care of everything from booking tours to restaurant recommendations. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Vestmannaeyjar islands and a stay in this hotel.

I've stayed at "Hotel Vestmannaeyjar" twice. Once in 2010 and again in 2014. The new owners have really outdone themselves with the expansion. Everything is modern and new. It also helps that the restaurant on the main floor is the finest in the town. The staff were amazing, Especially the owners son Frikki. The showers were amazing. The toilets felt... More

It was hard to find this hostel because it was not clear on the Hostelling International site. Not to mention it was on a one-way street on which there was construction so the only way to get to it was to go the wrong way! Oy that took us a while to find. Got checked in fine. We were in... More

We had the honor of being one of the first guests in the completely renovated new hotel. The hotel and the rooms are excellent but what makes the stay unforgettable is the hospitality of the owners and staff. They are ready to share the best tips for making your stay at the island the best.
