We spent two nights here - and used it as our base to explore this exciting and beautiful area The hotel is well positioned, comfortable and well kept. The added bonus is the excellent restaurant - with local produce featured. Make sure you book to get a table. We stayed in room 101 - on the ground floor - it... More

We had 2 double rooms, one of which was significantly bigger than the other with a large window. Both were clean and comfortable and had everything you needed for a short stay but perhaps rather basic for the price paid - although as accommodation is very limited at Myvatn I suppose they can charge higher prices. Staff were friendly and... More

Earlier in July me and my friends arrived at Myvatn not knowing what to expect from the hotels nearby. The stay at Hotel Reynihlid was really surprising to say the least from what I've experienced here in Iceland. The staff was incredibly helpful and assisted us with everything we needed, they were polite and even though it had been a... More

Stayed overnight here while touring the ring road around Iceland. Not a fan, here's why: 1) Overall not clean. 2) The shower is open to the floor of the bathroom and literally floods the place when you use it. Combined with item (1), this becomes absolutely disgusting. They provide you with a giant squeegee to clean the bathroom after yourself,... More

The hotel was comfortable and quiet and the bath was en suite. The office staff was very helpful and breakfast was plentiful. The location was fabulous and we had a view of the lake. It was expensive compared to other places we stayed in Iceland but this is the "high rent district".

The hotel is excellently located for a trip around Lake Myvatn. The check in was easy. The rooms are nice. But, there are no screens on the windows. The windows/entire wall of the hotel is covered with thousands of black bugs (hence the name of the area Myvatn, which means gnat). The front desk person tried to tell me that... More

Dear guest! Thank you for your review and comments. For this area not hotels, guesthouses or homes usually have window screens, the midgets (the flies that are our trademark ;) Usually do not live for along time if they fly in, and they stay in the windows. But we will take this into consideration and try to have a solution... More

We stayed at Hotel Reynihlid while birding in the Lake Myvatn area. We were tired after the drive to the area and felt so welcomed the moment we walked through the doors. The restaurant was excellent, rooms huge, bathroom large, and beds comfortable. This is more of a "European-style" hotel than smaller Icelandic hotels. Very welcome for us during our... More

The restaurant and bar areas seem to have had a welcome facelift, but our room was pokey and tired with a below average shower. We did have a lake view though, and the hotel is very close to the nature baths. The breakfast was the best we had - a huge selection of excellent cereals, nuts, seeds and fruits, plus... More

My partner and I decided last minute to stay here since we had been camping all week and the flies in this area were pestering us. It is a very nice hotel, we booked a double bed which was comfortable and the bathroom was really clean. There was free wifi and TV, and other amenities that we didn't use. One... More
