When reading my icelandic reviews, some account must be taken of the general level of accommodation in more remote areas. This hotel is good. We were given a big room, but it faced another building at the back so we asked to be moved. The new room was smaller, but had views over the lake, so no problem. The bathroom... More

We stayed here two nights while we explored the Lake Myvatn area on our "ring road" Iceland tour. The room was nice enough, clean. The bathrooms in Iceland do baffle me though...very small and the shower controls are odd and there is nowhere to put any toiletries. The free buffet breakfasts were good. The restaurant area is very cafeteria-esque though...so... More

Reasonably sized bathroom with good shower and counter space to put things. Wonderfully white linen and towels and very clean rooms.Excellent breakfast with good variety. Very pleasant staff who helped... More

We stayed three nights in a very nice room with a lake view. This is an older hotel so no refrig or safe, but not a but issue. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There is a nice bar and restaurant. The bar was very popular during World Cup matches. Only negative is a lack of elevators to get... More

We stayed here three nights as part of our Iceland road trip and were very happy with the hotel. We had a very nice and clean double-bed room with a lake-view. It offered everything you could expect, including a TV (which we never used) and free Wifi of course. Staff was very friendly and always at our service. The continental... More

Two memorable nights. Clean and welcoming, plenty of room with a good location for birding, mud pot excursions, visits to Godifoss Falls, or natural hot mineral spa time. Lounge, sunroom, free easy wi-fi, helpful staff and great food. Lake Myvatn does have midges in the summer. They don't bite, but do annoy you when you are outside lakeside. A headnet... More

We stayed here two nights, as part of our Iceland road trip with Nordic Visitor. Overall, we were very satisfied with this hotel. We received a pleasant welcome at Reception and were upgraded to a Superior Room, which was a good start. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished and had a lovely view of Lake Myvatn. The bed was comfortable... More

We have experienced great service and hospitality at many places around the World. But Hotel Reynihild is different. We felt that we are being served by heart. Thorvaldur explained us what to visit, which road is most scenic, etc. etc. He remembered very thing and asked if we enjoyed our day on our return. We experienced great hospitality all over... More

When visiting Lake Mývatn, my sister and I stayed at Hotel Reynilhid. It was modern and extremely clean with very comfy beds. The staff was extremely friendly and provided great customer service. The hotel had the perfect location in the center of town -- a quick drive from the Dimmuborgir lava fields, Krafla, boiling mud, and the Nature Baths. Restaurant... More

We stayed here for one night. We didn't try the evening buffet but went for the nearby restaurant instead. The breakfast was good although they had sugar in their scrambled eggs (something we encountered multiple times on Iceland). A free sauna is offered to guests although we didn't try it. Only bad part was that the rooms seemed to have... More
