We came to the islands and walked to this hotel to see if we could stay a few nights and found some of the nicest people there. The owners are wonderful and so kind. Let us pick which room we liked the most and the food was good too. Rooms were clean, and we enjoyed a soak in the large... More

Very friendly, helpfull and kind. We should stay for two nights but we'd seen the island in half a day. They helped us to book us over to the next hotel and let us stay for one night in a wonderfull big and luxery room. If we ever go back, we'll definitly will stay here.

I stayed there in end October 2013. They were expanding the place, but let me stay there anyway and said it could be noisy. It was actually not noisy, the staff is very friendly, there is computer free to use, included sheets and towels at the hostel. It is very close to the port, touristic information, supermarket, ...

I had a great stay at the hotel! Although I had booked for the hostel, they were fast to rebook me and find me my own room in the hotel, I also went downstairs and had a great dinner! Food was awesome, the chef even came out and greeted guests and asked how their meals were, including myself. Although I... More

We had booked a room at the Hotel Eyjar at which we were unable to stay as the property was undergoing renovations due to a fire the year before. The owner then made arrangements for us to stay at Hotel Vestmannaeyjar for the same price. We drove up to the hotel and were greeted warmly by name by the owner.... More

This hotel was easy to find and in a good area. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel because they knew exactly who we were when we walked in. Maybe we were the last to arrive or something but we were like wow they're so excited to see us. Probably not the case but it was nice. They helped bring... More

After arriving with Herjólfur at night it was no trouble finding the place. Reception is common with Hotel Vestmannaeyjar, the hostel itself is just around the corner. There was some sort of a building site in the front lawn, it is a good thing that the property is expanding! We were woken up by a sound of a heavy machinery... More

We have checked in ourselves in late night hours in the backhouse of this hotel. I noted that the place looked like construction site. On Saturday morning around 8am the bick truck parked under our windows and concrete-mixing truck started his shift. Construction workers all around, I was just waiting when the wrecking ball will come through our room :-)... More

The Hotel Vestmannaeyjar (also known as the Hotel Thorshammar) is centrally located in Heimaey and an easy walk from the ferry. The hotel has a very good and fairly modern restaurant on the main floor and offers spa services as well. The rooms are a little older, but have a kind of beach hotel feel - a little older, a...
