A modest hotel in a great location with friendly, welcoming staff. Any basic-ness is more than compensated by great staff. Can recommend for this reason. Was part of a package provided by Nordic Visitor so can't rate on cost.

For access to Skogafoss, you couldn't hope for better. We were meant to be camping in this area, but due to weather warnings and having bearing the brunt of the Icelandic wind before, we thought we'd look for brick and mortar shelter for the night. Rooms are clean, comfortable and generously sized, some have views looking onto the falls. Staff... More

The hotel is close the skogafoss waterfall, you can go walking. The rooms are quite nice, well done. The view from the rooms are amazing and you can see the sunny day with the mountain landscape. Toullete a are nice and very clean. TV in the room and few channels available. Very recommended!

This is a small hotel within walking distance of the beautiful Skoga series of waterfalls. It's also a good base for the equally lovely falls at and near Seljalandsfoss, plus Vik, the Vestmannaeyar Islands, Solheimajökull glacier hikes and other sights & activities in central southern Iceland. Nice view out to hills and fields, nesting snipe and oystercatchers a few metres... More

Unexpected stay here for 1 night as our planned hotel ended up being full. Has the feel of a backpackers hostel. Our room was good size however,and well appointed,although the bathroom could have done with a bit of an upgrade,but everything worked as it should. Be prepared for "sulphur" smelling water here when having a shower or wash,which is normal... More

The hotel is in a brilliant location within a couple of minutes of Skógafoss waterfall. Didn't get a very friendly welcome though. Admittedly we arrived before the check-in time but as it was raining and cold we decided to ask if the room was ready. The manager/owner? was very abrupt and just said "no" and basically told to leave and... More

Don't let the hotel's plain exterior fool you! This was our fourth of five nights in Iceland; Hotel Skogar was by far the most tastefully decorated hotel we stayed in during our travels and a very friendly staff. The rooms were large and clean by European standards. Our room had a balcony and a distant view of the waterfall. We... More

Our guide booked us at the cottage property of Hotel Skogar. The house had 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Decoration was spot on farmhouse chic. Plenty of towels and comfortable sofas. But the mattresses were terrible and broke this stay. Even the view of the peaceful sheep grazing in the meadow in front of us could not redeem the stay.... More

We travelled as a camera club group on a 7 night trip around Iceland staying in a different hostel each night, and had our fourth night here. We were made to feel very welcome, the hostel was clean and modern. Only gripe was that the toilets/showers were at one end of teh building and the bedrooms at the other end.... More

What a lovely treat...we booked only a one night stay (as we are travelling around the 1 ring road) but wish all our hotels were like this, and will be sad to go, plus we managed to get a lovely en-suit room with breakfast for a very good and fair price, especially compared to many places in the area.
