Amazing experience! Our guide Olaf was just brilliant, we were fascinated by his knowledge and stories about Iceland and it's history. The tour was really good, we had enough time to explore the different locations and didn't feel rushed at all. Highlight was the secret lagoon, much better than the blue lagoon as felt way more natural and less touristy. Had a few drinks in the hot water when the sun went down, so good! We were so excited to get to the bubble and it did not disappoint. It was exactly as we hoped, private, warm, comfortable. Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to see the Northern Lights but we had a clear sky and the stars were amazing. All the stops we made for food were really lovely. I would recommend this once in a lifetime trip without a doubt! Thank you!
We stayed here as part of the Golden Circle Buuble Tour. Our guide Ahni (Misspelled, probably - Sorry) was interesting and knowledgeable and made this more than "just" a tour. We felt like we were traveling with a friend! The 5 Million Star Hotel, however was the highlight, for sure. These Buubles are arranged in a thicket of trees for privacy, yet all close to the support facilities (kitchen & full baths) which were very clean and well designed. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the Buubles were wonderful - extremely comfortable with incredibly cozy beds. I wish the night had been clear to see the stars or Aurora, but we had cloud cover instead - which was like another cozy blanket over top of everything. So glad we visited - we'll never forget it!
I cannot rave enough about our experience with the Golden Circle Buubble tour. Our guide Gummi was amazing, including a wonderful mix of information and comedic relief as we drove around the Golden Circle. Each stop was more amazing than the last...with the ultimate stop being the buubbles! We had stopped at dinner, and Gummi even came into the restaurant to let us know the northern lights were out, which allowed us to get pictures! Little did we know, that was just the beginning of our evening! We got to our Buubbles, and after a quick tour of the location, we settled into our Buubble, where the lights were "on" all night long. We couldn't have asked for a better (and well-timed) trip to sleep comfortably under the stars!
The 5 million star hotel in Iceland is something I've never experienced before. The quaint pod in a forested area with millions of start above you while you sleep was one of the most beautiful sleeps of my life. Everything from the cleanliness to the organization to the staff was amazing. the pods are completely transparent and you can see all the way around your "bedroom" however your neighbors are far enough away in different parts of the wilderness that you don't need to worry about disturbing them or being disturbed at any given moment. The common cabin was relatively close to all of the pods so bathroom or kitchen visits were within a 50-70m walk it seemed from all of the pods. Highly recommend staying here if you get a chance.
This is a MUST stay - it is a dream to stay at The 5 Million Star Hotel! Depending on the time of year, they may allow you to skip the tour and book only a bubble for the night. Very reasonably priced and worth the value. Each bubble is secluded in its own area and there's no worries of neighbors. Shower-house available with blow dryer and other necessities. Refrigerator available with kitchen-top stove and dining table. Absolutely loved sleeping and waking up underneath the stars. Great host with excellent communication. We were actually delayed an entire night and they were very accommodating! Does get a little hot with the ventilation - good for Winter but something to keep in mind for Summer - fans are available upon request. Would go back to Iceland for this stay again, highly recommend this experience! …
