We have stayed at a number of hotels in Iceland, and this was the most expensive and most disappointing. The hotel has an excellent location on a hill overlooking the bay, but from the outside it appears run down, and on the inside it is without any charm at all. Our room was small, but clean. It was poorly equipped:... More

Clean, comfortable. Friendly staff, good buffet breakfast. Lovely spot up on a hill overlooking the town. Convenient to everything and it is in an easy walking town. Also, the staff will waken you to see the Northern Lights if you request it. Funny curved swinging shower doors are remarkably effective.

Bedding was stained. Pillows were full of dust mites and drool stained. Lots of dust on top of headboard and around bed. We slept on top of the blanket fully clothed to avoid touching the bedding. Stay away if you can help it.

This hotel stands on a hill overlooking beautiful town of Stykkisholmur, spectacular view from our room. We got newly refurbish room with one of the best beds I have ever slept in a hotel. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated. In the night you don't hear a sound from the outside it is amazing. We had a dinner... More

Room was comfortable and convenient. Icelandic hotels seem to like to open the shower to the whole bathroom making the floor considerably wet after showering. The worst part was the really bad wifi. It was free when I could access it. I got better wifi in the town's open wifi than at the hotel! A bit of a corporate and... More

The hotel has a great location with great views on the hill. Stayed for 2 nights and found it to be a very nice place. Enough room for our things and some the best blackout curtains to shield the midnight sun. Breakfast was good. Would stay there again.

We stayed here one night prior to catching the ferry to Flatay Island. The rooms are typical modern European style. The bathroom is small by American standards but the accommodations are perfectly fine for one night's stay. Overnight was nice and quiet.

Everything smells mediocracy. Rooms are simple and clean with a basic bathroom. Quilt are to short for a normal size dutch guy. The bar is not a cozy place and you always need to ring to get staff to order some drinks when it's later in the evening. In this mediocracy there was a very good dinner which I didn't... More

The hotel looks quite nice on the inside and the rooms were clean and pretty, but the overall impression made me disappointed of this hotel. First, we rented a double room and a three person room. The room for 3 people was a bit more expensive, but it was the same size as the double room only with one extra... More
