We stayed here on our way around Iceland and we loved the wood themed rooms and how cosy and warm it was. The food was basic and little choice. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good overnight stop hotel.

We were travelling anti-clockwise on route 1 and this was a strategic stop to suit activities we had booked. Not far off the route 1 it is very easy to find. We arrived at 8pm and the hotel considers this late - they request people arriving after 6pm call ahead to ensure they keep reception open. However this was no... More

We stayed for one night on a tour. The hotel seems to be built in the style of a log cabin with wood cladding almost everywhere! The hotel sits in a quiet town and after our fairly short journey we struggled to find a great deal of specific interest in the area, but it's a good stop off as the... More

Hotel Blafell is very nice hotel and not over priced as some of the hotels are in Iceland. Very earthly feel to the hotel due wood used in the entire hotel. Has great facilities like sauna and a room with nice hearth and comfy chairs/couches. Breakfast is good, pizza at dinner should be fresh instead of from fridge though.

We stopped for one night while touring - it is well-located for exploring the East Fjords. We arrived at the end of August and there was an end-of season atmosphere: the hotel was quiet and the staff seemed a bit jaded. We were in the newer part of the hotel which has a log-cabin style, and the room was clean... More

We only booked this hotel one day ahead and were happy to find accommodation on such short notice. We had booked a standard room, but apparently found ourselves in one of the wood-panelled superior rooms. Very romantic. The room was very cosy, bathroom was small, but had a great shower, which is the most important thing. Good selection of food... More

This hotel is warm and cozy. The wood-walled common room with a central fire place is very welcoming. The common room is also equipped with a couple of computers, which is good because the free wifi was weak in our room. Wifi reception in the common room was strong. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Given the number of... More

Stayed at Hotel Blafell as part of our honeymoon trip. Unsure if we were upgraded, but we stayed in a room the was about 50% larger than the rest. We planned to stay one night, but due to closed roads to the south (which the staff warned us about that morning - THANK YOU!), stayed one more (and were glad... More
