We were so looking forward to the Viking Village experience, but they fell short of what was posted. We took a bus down from Reykjavik as they indicated how much fun the restarurant was, with singing and horns of beer. We arrived on May 30th,...More

I really wanted to give this hotel a very good rating, the outside is quite impressive, the wood work and the presentation is excellent. However the inside and the service holds it back. The hotel is dated and from the decor and articles on display,...More

Really lovely stay in one of my favorite towns. Would give a 5 star (it’s not luxury but it’s perfect for a family stay) except... there was bedspace to sleep 5 but with no dressers it would feel a bit cramped. Definitely recommend this if...More

Lovely place, warm, comfortable and very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms need a little bit more attention but all in all very nice stay. Breakfast is nice but limited compared to how big the hotel is. I will stay again though.

Slightly outside of the main town, this hotel offers very comfortable accommodation, friendly service and a lovely breakfast. The adjoining restaurant was superb, good food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. If you want something different to the standard, modern, soulless hotels, this place offers...More

A little way off the main road the village is really worth a visit. While it may appear a bit kitsch on paper in reality it was a terrific experience. The little cafe at the entrance sold good coffee and snacks. Take a visit to...More

It is recommended to book, especially on weekends. Go to fjorukrain.is or Vikingvillage.is (don’t remember witch one) There is a direct local bus from Reykjavik to Hafnafjordur city centre and from there it is 5 min walk

I would say 15 minutes in a car and 20 to 30 minutes by bus. It’s on the direct number 1 bus route. Outdoor thermsl spar and pools is about 10 mins walk or 2 mina drive from Viking Village.
