Whenever I think of the four days we spent at Hotel Ranga, I have a smile on my face.
The friendly staff, their happiness to be of help regarding the Norther Lights and sightseeing, the great lounge, dining room and beautiful breakfast buffet as well as the hot tubs have been described before, and I can but confirm the coziness and happy feeling of the hotel.
We also liked the fact that free internet access, maps and books on iceland were at our disposal in the lobby.
Meal prices in the restaurant were comparable to those of good restaurants across Europe and we found the food absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared, in short, worth every penny (to compensate, we prepared our own sandwiches at lunch time).
I made ample use of the hot tubs, which contributed to making this one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had.
The location of Hotel Ranga is great not only for Northern Lights watching and ease of access, but also because some of the most interesting natural sites can be reached from there within a short time.
I would love to go back ...
