Having travelled in Iceland in July 2014, we had the opportunity to compare some B&B, guesthouses and hotels. Here the review of Hotel Volcano. - Style and comfort: a rather little hotel in a recent building, design and furniture are modern - Surroundings, quietness: no special view, but quiet - Breakfast: good buffet - Dinner: menu of the day can...

We stayed two nights in early June in the family room (2 adults, 2 teens) and the room was well-appointed and very clean. More importantly, my husband had a health issue that needed attention and Johann handled the call to the medical personnel and was able to arrange for the nurse practitioner to see him in the Vik clinic after...

Great location, plenty to see and close to the sea and cliffs where you can see puffins at the right time of the year. Lovely rooms with countryside views and although a limited menu the food was fantastic.

Stayed here for a few nights last summer. The hotel was lovely, rooms well-furnished and spotlessly clean. We found the the staff really helpful and attentive. We booked for dinner and the food was melt-in-the mouth delicious (as were the breakfasts !) Situated only a few minutes West of Vik this is a really excellent base for exploring the South... More

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend on cruise critic. It is a modern, stylish boutique hotel and we loved every minute of it. We had a family suite with a queen bed, couch, pack and play for the baby and a twin bed for our daughter. Everything was clean and beautiful. The staff was wonderful...Margaret, Johann and... More

We stayed two nights in July with two boys - aged 10 and 11. Everything was perfect and the owners and staff took very good care of us - this place is highly recommended! The rooms were bright and clean, and everything was to the highest standard.

This hotel was ideally situated for exploring the Vik area. It is right across from the road to Dyrholaey. The room was large enough to accomodate our family of 4 comfortably. We booked ahead to order the dinner and it was very good. We also booked a super jeep glacier walk with Johann and it was our kids' favourite activity... More

We will always cherish the time we spent at the Volcano Hotel. From its beautiful setting, to the stylish decor, to the wonderful people who run it -- I cannot praise it highly enough. My husband and I spent 4 nights here at the end of June (after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor) and we were not disappointed.... More

Our room was nice and the hotel was very nice. Wifi was good (handy as there is no 3G here) and the staff were pleasant and friendly. We had the dinner which was Arctic Char and was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Breakfast was also good. I've only marked it down because our room was cold (at... More
