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

This hotel is located in Vik which is a very pretty little town settled in the shadow of one of many impressive Icelandic mountains. The hotel itself is clean but a little old. The rooms are lovely and warm, with the beds comfortable and the bathroom shower awesome. Dinner was expensive (but it seems that all food in Iceland is... More

Don't be put off by the bad reviews. This is a decent hotel. We did have renovated rooms and they were quite nice. I did not see any of the old rooms but I would ask for a newly renovated one when booking. The hotel changed hands recently and it looks as if the new owners are slowly improving it.... More

The hotel is in a beautiful area of Iceland. The accommodation is very good and varied breakfast and quality. The hotel is very close to the black beach of the Atlantic Ocean. The scenery is amazing. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the bus station and close to a supermarket.

Don't let the bad reviews scare you off. Sure, the rooms are basic, and overpriced, but overpricing is the standard in tiny, isolated Vik (population 291. Hotels: 24) That said, rooms are clean, equipped with a tv and free WiFi is available. Breakfast is good with a sufficient variety of choices. All in all, I came prepared for the worst... More
