There's no reception so we had an email with the room number and key code for the door. The room is very basic with simple furniture. The en-suite was small with a walk in shower. Everything was, however, clean and the beds were comfortable. There's wifi in the rooms. Breakfast was fairly standard with cereals, juice, bread, fruit, and some... More

The hotel room is as basic as can be, it is very unpleasant and was the worst hotel we stayed at in Iceland. Poorly furnished, no staff, no key was left initially, had to call to get another room in which the window latch was broken and the room was incredibly hot.

Horrible hotel please don't ever go to this hotel. No one to answer any of your questions its a self check in hotel and rooms are terrible especially the 3 bed room ones. Breakfast was OK compared to the rooms.

Among the four places I stayed at in Iceland, this was the worst. The room is quite sad (not really clean and poorly furnished) for the price that you're paying and the people in charge of reception were kind of blur and unhelpful.

Everything about this place was disappointing. There were no staff apart from a desperately tired lady who occasionally roamed the corridor shooting scathing looks at customers. From the outside, it is basically an old tired warehouse; ugly and unwelcoming to the extreme. You have to call to check yourself in, get a code to retrieve the key to your room.... More

First, I come into the hotel to ask for a new room at 8 pm and the reception had no people and had a landline phone with a sign that says "call this number with our free phone to book a new room." So I pick up the phone and dial the number and a lady picks up and tells... More

Stayed here in December 2014, cheap hotel in the village Vík, South Iceland. Not so bad, clean rooms, maybe more like a hostel than a hotel. Staff had diffillcutis understanding English. Very cheap........, great breakfast. Will use this hotel again.

We arrived at this hotel quite late after a long drive, the hotel itself is self check in which was fine, however the place was completely dead. The restaurant was closed, there was no staff at all and I doubt there were any other customers. The hotel was clean, a tad dated and if you just want to stop for... More

This review is for the restaurant only (I did not stay in the hotel): I have traveled around Iceland several times, and this restaurant was one of the very few instances when I have felt directly ripped off. The food was maybe not directly inedible, but definitely unacceptable for the price they ask. I ordered the salmon main course, and... More

This is a very comfortabel place to stay, nice beds, good shower, clean. We had a nice breakfast. Situated close to THE beach which is impressive with THE black beach and THE view to THE rocks in THE sea. Most of all we are very thankful that this staff is very trustable. We forgot an expensive binocular and they stored... More
