We stayed at the Grimsborgir for my husbands 40th birthday from 15-17th January 2016. I booked the luxury weekend special and we had an amazing weekend, hotel was spotlessly clean and the food served in the restaurant was delicious. Our room was beautiful which included private outdoor hot tub. Drinking wine in the hot tub while it's snowing - it... More

We arrived on New Years Eve, Our room was in the block closest to the main building and only about a 3 min walk in the snow..The room was bright and lovely and warm. The... More

We love to stay in interesting or very nice accommodations when we travel, and searching online I had a hard time finding anything in Iceland that looked like it met our standards. And then we found the Grimsborgir. This is a FABULOUS family owned hotel in the country outside Reykavik. We stayed in a deluxe four bedroom apartment which was... More

We did drive 90km from Keflavik to join New Year's Eve in this place and it was like an oasis in the desert! It looks great and then you are conducted to your suite and you find the kingdom of cleanliness and a spacious place! Then we went back to reception to have a drink near the fireplace then a...

This hotel was not so much a hotel as a house. A very comfortable, cozy one. We had a serviced villa with 4 bedrooms (even though there were only two of us) and it exceeded our expectation with regards to accommodation. The open plan kitchen, dining, living area was comfortable with every possible requirement met. The hot tub outside was... More

Our extended family had the four bedroom cottage and enjoyed the snow covered setting, the cozy scandinavian designed cottage (light hardwood floors, white kitchen, big windows with ledges) and the hot tub on the snowy nights. Breakfast had a lot of selection; dinner was expensive but also had a great buffet selection. The staff were extremely helpful and mapped out... More

Stayed as a family of four for two nights in December 2015. Given the 4 hours of daylight at this time of year we didn't actually experience/ see the hotel other than at nighttime, so can't comment on the location. Our room was in one of the chalet-style lodges, which are spacious, decorated in a modern, slightly-more-luxious-than-Ikea style, and very... More

Not many people had heard of this hotel but it is definitely worth trying. The room is very modern and stylish with a lovely view. The restaurant was a bit odd, with pink table cloths and a very loud pianist, but the food was excellent in the evening (less so the breakfast).

We stayed here for three nights as part of our Iceland holiday. The staff were mainly very friendly and helpful, and showed an interest in us as well as a great concern for our safety on our last day when a blizzard and storm was forecast and we had to get back to Reykjavik. The hotel was beautifully decorated and... More

We only stayed at Hotel Grimsborgir by "accident". As our summerhouse was completely snowed in and impossible to reach, we found shelter at the Grimsborgir. We were completely satisfied: great food, cozy rooms and a nice lounge. Biggest plus is María and her team - they even helped us to find a snowplough to clear the roads to our summerhouse!... More
