4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After trekking around all day this was a great stop. Really cute rooms. very sweet staff. We sat in the lobby and they poured us a whisky as we unwinded and warmed up. Then we went in the hot tub which was awesome. Perfect end to our day. Breakfast was great!! I would stay here absolutely again..and probably stay longer.

Food here is expensive (as usual in Iceland), but the fish is fresh and freshly prepared. We tried the smoked salmon, followed by the fried trout, and we were satisfied. Also, the Viking beer is cold and good :-) Free (and fast by Islandic standards) wlan everywhere.

This place has the distinct feel of a country hostal for school groups. In fact there were a few school classes while we stayed. Our room actually was quite good but it really lacked some charm. Breakfast was not great but OK. Price was not over the top.

Needed a place to stay while travelling with my parents and partner. Saw this place in a guidebook and decided to take a chance. Rooms were perfect, staff were friendly, and everything was clean. The hot tub and sauna were amazing after a long day of exploring around Vik and loved the option to cook for ourselves. There was even... More

We stayed here on the way back from the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. This hotel was the closest available to the lagoon on our westward trail at the time we booked. We stayed at the lagoon until sunset began and made it to the hotel shortly after it was truly dark (it gets dark very slowly in August). Even though we... More

Came with a short Aurora tour 28Feb/1 March with Snaelland Grimsson. Comfy spacious room (55). Kettle but no tea/coffee. Soap dispenser not working. Meals good. Helpful staff. Didn't try the outside hot tub. Several km outside Vík so you would need own transport if you wanted to eat out. Would stay again. Good base for south Iceland.

We were two couples at the end of our trip to Iceland and decided to stay in Vik as a half way point between the Glacier Lagoon and Reykjavik. We had a wonderful night. The rooms were clean, modern and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel staff were extremely friendly. We did dine at the restaurant attached to the... More

We were part of an unusually large coach party of 49 and had no control over the choice of hotel. We arrived at Hotel Katla Hofdabrekka in the dark and allocated room 65 in what I’m guessing is the most recently built block. Had I read some of the Tripadvisor comments before arriving I would have dreaded going anywhere near... More

Hmm. Anywhere other than Iceland, this hotel would've garnered 2 stars. I couldn't believe it was the highest rated place in Vik... until we stayed in another property the next night. It might be the best place in Vik- just know that isn't saying a whole lot. The Good: Staff is courteous. Free wifi in the restaurant was really nice-... More

Hotel Hafdabrekka didn't have the charm that some of the other guesthouses did, but it was a fine place to stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was particularly large. We were in the newer section of the hotel and our room was very quiet. The hotel did play host to several bus-loads of tourist groups, so it... More
