After a long day touring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula we spent the night at this hotel which was a perfect stopping point. The location overlooks the harbor, the parking is free, the rooms and bathrooms are on the larger side with coffee maker, breakfast small but nice, very quiet and reasonably priced. The rooms do not have black out curtains. The staff was very nice. The hotel is walking distance to restaurants, harbor and town. I have to say that in all my travels I have never stayed at a hotel with a Chapel. Our traveling companions are Catholic and they spent some time there. Highly recommend.

We lucked out and had a wonderful room, 217. It’s a southwest corner room with views of the ocean and harbor. The room was somewhat small but yet the bed was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was very good. The hostess Marlena and the manager were very friendly, attentive and informative. The breakfast was very good with the usual Icelandic affair. A good central base for touring Snaefellsnes peninsula. Try to stay two nights.

The rooms themselves were comfortable and decently appointed. Climbing the steps is an experience as they are less than a meter wide! They do have a small bar that is not really staffed, you have call front desk clerk to get your drink and pay. Rooms include a light breakfast that starts at 7:00am

This a renovated monastery with great views of the harbour and comfortable rooms. The Baldur ferry was late getting in and quite a few of us checked in very late but the young man at the desk was organised and helpful and we were quickly sorted out. Breakfast was served in a bright welcoming space and the continental breakfast had a good range of choices. But PLEASE get a new toaster - the current one only toasts in the middle two bays and only on one side of the bread!

The hotel is connected to a hospital and a small chapel. The room is spacious enough to be comfortable, it’s also very bright and clean, which results in a very calm atmosphere. The location is great, it’s hard to get any better in Stykkisholmur. Our room had a nice view over the bay. The breakfast was good, but don’t expect too many hot choices; apart from toasts, everything else is cold but that’s very common in Iceland. Overall a very soothing stop. Free parking.

We stayed at the Fransiskus after a 10 hour day driving from Reykjavik and around the Snaefellsness peninsula. The hotel was comfortable and the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the lounge after returning from dinner for a nightcap and had a nice breakfast in the morning. Our stay was short but we were charmed by the cute town.

We arrived after a full circuit of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and were very pleased with the location of the hotel close to the harbour. We had no problem parking at the hotel and the reception was very friendly.
Our room was really comfortable and clean. It had plenty of storage space for baggage too. The lift is somewhat quirky but gets you to the right floor eventually. The breakfast was good in a pleasant airy room downstairs and was more than adequate for our needs.

This hotel is nicely situated near the harbor.

The staff kind and very serviceminded.

But the beds in our room were way to soft and you will find your lying in a hole where it is difficult to change position.

The bathroom was very small and you had to make up your mind before entering. There is not room for changing your mind afterward.

We stayed for just one day at the Fransiskus hotel. When we arrived are host wasn’t there to welcome us in the first place, after I rang the bell after a couple of minutes waiting she’d finally arrive.

The rooms were actually quit comfortable and cosy. The beds were nice and de bathroom was just okay.

But further the evening we asked for some extra coffee cups because ours were already used. After the second time asking for some drinks, coffee and for a proper water boiler, our host was replaying somehow irritated. At last I asked for some milk before sleeping, she replayed with: okay, this is the last ting I’ll do for this very evening? She told us to stop asking for things and we were crossing the line when it comes to her hospitality?

So we were quit surprised about the way we’ve been treated trough our stay.

Definitely the last time for my..

Nice accommodation in a beautiful town. The accommodation is in a good location by the harbour and offers a comfy room and bed. In icelandic standard, the charge was reasonable as well.

However, the whole experience was ruined by a breakfast staff. The breakfast was till 10 but before 10 the staff already start taking away the food and requested very politely us to leave the venue.

Otgerwise, it would have been a 5 star review.
