There isn't much around Vik, but a few small bed and breakfast or hotels and one great big one in the centre of town. A compromise is the Volcano Hotel about 5km West of the town near the black beaches. There are 7 rooms all individual with pleasant views across the countryside and volcanic art themes. Facilities are not luxurious... More

We wanted to visit the fantastic beaches and nature reserves of Dyrholaey and Reynisfjara, don't miss this if you are in the area. Make a point of staying in this friendly hotel with excellent food, reserve an evening meal in advance, it's well worthwhile and breakfast is equally good. The owners are friendly and helpful and run trips to the... More

We just returned from an amazing trip to Iceland, and the highlight was Vik and especially our private Glacier hike with Johann, the owner/tour guide of Volcano Hotel. I am going to give you the information I was seeking when planning our trip, but the good news (for me) was that we stayed in the perfect hotel. Iceland does not... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at Volcano Hotel in March. We loved it! The staff and owners were fantastic. We ate here one evening (very nice dinner) and went into Vik the other two nights. Breakfast was good and filling each morning and it was the perfect location to explore Vik and the surrounding areas. The room was... More

We initially booked to stay 2 nights, loved it so much we stayed for another night. Great hotel, rooms really nice and clean, great location just 10 minutes outside of Vik and opposite amazing coastal scenery. Really easy to find off the main road. We also went ice climbing with Johann who does his own excursions from the hotel -... More

I stayed for one night in early April. Super clean and comfortable. Great breakfast and Arctic char for dinner with wine. In the summer you can climb the hill behind the hotel and you will discover a hidden lake. A great place for a secluded romantic picnic in the evening for just the two of you.

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of April. We arrived after 10pm and were greeted by Margret as if it was 2pm! The rooms were clean, beds the most comfortable and breakfast very satisfying. I had read previous reviews and this is the main reason we stayed and we were not disappointed! We also did the glacier hiking... More

We loved staying here for 3 nights on our Iceland trip. Vik is a pretty area with interesting scenery and hiking, and the hotel was a great way to experience it all. The breakfast is delicious and filling, and Johann was incredibly helpful whenever we had questions or wanted to talk about potential tours. He took us on a glacier... More

Hotel Volcano is situated ~10kms west of Vik just off the Road 1 and is set far enough back from the road that any traffic is not noticeable and also the rooms are mostly on the back of the hotel facing the countryside. Rooms are spartan, bright and modern - the single beds are reasonably soft and the room was... More

I am so thankful to have found this hotel on TripAdvisor! Everyone at this hotel made it so special. Our room was very large, beds were so comfortable - and from our room, opened the curtains and could see the sea and mountains. What a spectacular thing to wake up to! The breakfast was filling and delicious. There is so... More
