As a luxury adventure blogger at world-adventurer.com I've stayed in many hotels around Iceland and Europe. Hotel Blafell pleases with its simple homey approach to a pleasant stay. Here's what made it so special: - Location: As with most of the country in the region, the views are spectacular. This hotel is also a good stop over on a drive... More

Due to the fact that this was the only hotel open in this area we stayed over, since we were both quite exhausted from the long drive. A bit overpriced in my opinion. Rooms were really good and comfortable. Coffee and tea available in every room. No breakfast included. Overall a pleasant stay.

We had not planned on staying in this area but got caught in the middle of the worst storm to hit Iceland for 25 years and the road was closed so this was our only option. We were just hoping the hotel would be clean and warm so we could sit out the storm but we struck gold. The owner... More

We booked this hotel because all the hotels in Hofn were booked up. The room was okay, the bathroom was tiny. We were the only guests in the hotel so we were very uncomfortable. The only restaurant in town was in the hotel and instead of letting us choose was we wanted from the menu they only offered us 2... More

Nice friendly staff. The lounge area with the comfy seats is the best part of this hotel. Sauna is nice too. My room was a bit dark and rather small but okay for one night. Blankets were warm, maybe a little too warm. The door to the bathroom was incredible heavy. It took me (male, 33 yo) every time a... More

Nice place on the east coast of Iceland. Some wonderful ocean views. Fall visit with few tourists. Our group had the place to ourselves except for another couple with two teen children. Reminded me of a hunting lodge - all pine board construction. Rooms comfortable and clean. I check the showers since I had a terrible experience in Bath England... More

The room was good and the happy hour was great. I had the fish of the day for dinner, and it was excellent. There is a cozy lounge where you relax in the evening and chat or read.. The staff were nice and friendly, and very helpful. I would definitely like to stay here again.

We arrived about 6pm one evening and checked in. Luckily we got in before the tour group arrived. We ate dinner in the lobby of the hotel which was ok. I perhaps should have had the dinner buffet because it looked good. Our room was on the 2nd floor with no elevator. The manager tended to the tour group and... More

We stop by here for Lunch break during our Iceland tour in Aug 12,2015. It was surprised their soup was tasted great. We ordered their three type of soups. Meat soup, seafood soup and vegi soup. Seafood soup was so good that I even order second bowl!! If you have chance to go there Don't miss it.
