Hótel Hlíð is located in very quiet area (around 1 hour by car from Reykjavík) with beautiful views and near-by hiking trails. It was our base for exploring amazing south-west part of Iceland. After the trips we relaxed in the outside hot tub and also went for the dinner offered by the hotel. They prepared really delicious Icelandic cuisine, I... More

Really nice hotel with really helpful and friendly staff. If you have questions, they know all the answers and are willing to help you as much as they can. The rooms are really great with comfy beds! Everyone should relax in the geothermal hot tub in the evening to enjoy the silence of the icelandic nature and get their energy... More

Some of the best cuisine in Iceland, coupled with cozy rooms and the friendliest staff. The views are spectacular and the on sight boulders are beautiful and challenging to climb. The geothermal hot tub is a perfect way to relax after a long day of exploring Iceland. Thanks for a great time, Hotel Hlid!

Stayed 3 night at this hotel (pronounced Hlith) Outside was nothing special, modern spacious, tasteful and warm inside. Our room was a good size double with en suite, very clean. The bed was comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping at all. Very peaceful location. The hotel manager was really really helpful and pleasant. He even arranged for an earlier... More

The hotel is very simple. Rooms small and not very clean. Dinner was decent but the breakfast was very poor. Staff were pleasant. Nature around is wonderful but I do not recommend this hotel.

Bathroom ok with nice shower and clean towels. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good with cereals, yoghurt, fruit followed with choice of breads,... More

We stayed for three nights and found it clean with basic needs. It is set at a very quiet location on a very quiet road. Breakfast was basic with a cold selection of foods. Evening meal was good with a variety of home cooked foods to eat. Overall a pleasant experience.

We weren't supposed to be staying here - we were supposed to be at their sister hotel the Hotel Ork, which is of a higher standard, but ebookers messed up and they hadn't booked us a room, even though they confirmed 4 days before my departure that they had! The Hotel Ork sent us to the Hlid as they had... More
