Stayed here one night while passing through Höfn. Staff was super helpful revising my reservation when I needed to change dates and there were some issues with Booking.com. They even made a double room in to a single as a slightly lower price. But you literally get 1 single bed for 20000 Kr and it looks weird in the room because it’s built for two beds. Bathroom is nice and good size. Hallways are loud as I found out one morning. Good parking too. Breakfast is included and also excellent. One final note, this is NOT located in Höfn, it’s about 7KM outside on the highway. And about 15 minutes from Stokknes. It’s still quiet but if you’re looking for something more central, this isn’t it. Staff was super nice. Would consider staying again.

One of my favorite places so far.
It is clean and comfy and friendly. They were super helpful with allowing us to check in a bit early. The wifi was sufficient for our needs and there was some FaceTime happening without any glitches.
Large parking lot but it was full by the end of the day.
Breakfast was busy and crowded but the food was good and plenty of options with refills arriving from the busy staff on the regular.
Would absolutely recommend, we had no issues.

We did a driving tour along the southern coast of Iceland and this was one of our stops. The hotel fit our needs perfectly and was affordable for a family of four. We had two rooms, both quite comfortable. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was the typical fare of cold cuts, cheese and cereal. The location of the hotel was just a few minutes outside the core of Hoft, where we went for dinner and then back again for some groceries. If you’re a Walter MItty fan, Hofn is where Walter lands in “Greenland”.

Has a bit of a hostel feel, when you hear people going to toilet and shower in the morning in the hallway. Beds are comfortable, and rooms are clean but without TV, telephone etc., just a sink. Breakfast is also basic, i.e. not even scrambled eggs. However the breakfast room is quite modern and has a nice view.

I am so very sad that we did not actually get to make our trip to Iceland, due to the Covid19 pandemic:( And, we had booked this hotel at a great rate that was supposed to be non-refundable, using the hotels.com website. When our trip got cancelled, I called hotels.com, to explain that we couldn't go to Iceland, as Icelandair , and the country of Iceland isn't allowing American tourists at this time, and felt we should get a refund. They said no, and blamed it on the hotel Jokull's policy! But, when the awesome staff at Hotel Jokull found out, they began communicating with me directly by email, and have been wonderful!! I received the full refund😁 I can't wait to try this trip again when our world settles in to its "new normal"! I will book directly with Hotel Jokull!

We were alone in the hotel due to the closure of the VIK to Hofn road (weather too windy). However the room was ready nicely warmed. The morning breakfast was delicious even though prepared for the two of us only. The hotel is about 6 km from Hofn where we ate in a wonderful restaurant right on the water. Be careful watch out for the hotel sign as it can easely be missed.

Family room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Front desk staff was friendly. Would stay here again. It’s a short 10 minute drive to Hofn. Breakfast was good. Standard Iceland breakfast. Boiled eggs, fruit, breads, cold cuts, juice, coffee, tea. Lots of parking. We had a family room(sleeps 4), so we had our own bathroom in the room. Across from our room was the shared bathroom/shower for the other rooms.

Stayed one night at this comfortable hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean. The rooms are not very soundproof, but it was quiet at night.
Breakfast was ample and varied with coffee from a thermos jug.
The restaurant opens in the evening and offers the classic dishes, not the greatest culinary excellence, but solid, tasty and certainly sufficient.
There is no elevator in the building.
Very spacious parking.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Jokull on our trip around the ring road. The hotel is in a small town close to the slightly larger town of Hofn. There is an older wing and newly built annex. We stayed in the new annex which was clean and modern. Rooms are small with good blackout curtains. The main building where breakfast is held is modern and spacious.

The woman at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. She recommended great places to eat in Hofn and things to do around that region of Iceland. I would stay there again if ever back in southeastern Iceland.

We booked a room with a shared bathroom but were given one with a private bath which was great. Service was friendly and the breakfast was decent with a good selection of food. The location is convenient, just off the main ring road, although noise wasn’t an issue.
