We stayed at Hotel Hlid after 2 weeks of camping in the wind and rain. It was a nice break from the elements and the warmth of a hotel was really welcomed. The room was basic -- beds, a spot to put clothes & luggage, and a clean private bathroom. The price was also really great when compared to other... More

After seven nights of fun outdoor camping and travel by car it started to rain and the winds picked up the afternoon before our flight out the next day so we decided to keep things dry and stay in a hotel. This was just what we wanted--clean, comfortable, quiet and room for three! The breakfast had quite the variety including... More

I was not sure what to expect when the owners dogs met us at the door. We stayed two nights as we explored the area. Owners were very welcoming and helpful with suggestions. The room was nice size, clean and the food was really good. I would definitely recommend the hotel. Simple, warm and welcoming at a reasonable price for... More

Stayed here in May 2015. Had a great stay at Hotel Hlid. The price was great and the staff very friendly. Hotel was the simple style that one finds across Iceland, but was a great spot to stay for hiking in Hveragardi the next day. What I will remember though was the slice of Apple Cake at breakfast. Something that... More

We stayed here in may 2015 and had a relaxing time. We found a great deal on booking.com and were not disappointed. Our room was clean and comfy. And we were spoiled at breakfast, with lots of variety and special touches (apple cake brought to our table!)

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!
