I designed a blogger for hotels around the world.I have 90 thousand followers who are interested in tourism and hotels and now my criticism of the hotel would be very severe I travel every week in a different country and different and choose the best hotels. A very big disappointment. Very small rooms. The pool area is very well maintained....

Hotel states they don't know of any other way to get there than their private transport offer. 500€ ONE WAY. When I ask how much a taxi they say the don't know since taxi don't drive there most of the time because some roads close in winter. When I called taxi to get back they charged me 150€ and said...

Me and my roommate came to Iceland after hearing rave reviews from people online and social media. Let's just say Iceland didn't disappoint but Ion definitely did. We arrived during very bad rainy weather and stayed three nights because of it's proximity to the Golden Circle. We both wanted a luxury boutique style hotel and on arriving we were surprised...

Such a beautiful hotel. And to walk right out of the hotel and have amazing hiking trails was spectacular! Would definitely recommend this hotel as a must in Iceland!! To be greeted with champagne and a wonderful staff was a great way to start the visit. Food was absolutely amazing. I would recommend at two or three night stay. We...

Great NY Times article led us to book the Ion Adventure Hotel, and I stupidly did not even look online to read reviews from real people. So I have no one to blame but myself. I was expecting a high end, cool design, luxury experience to go with the $500 a night price. Wrong. I should have suspected trouble when...

Stayed here recently on a business trip with a view to seeing the northern lights, really unlucky with the weather, it was cloudy, lashed it down and blew a gale, so obviously no norther lights. Hotel is funny in that some ways it's quite upmarket and other ways like a hotel. The rooms are fairly small but very cosy, bathrooms...

This was the most expected hotel in out Iceland trip but turned out the most disappointing. We have stayed in the deluxe room for one night. The price is luxurious itself but the overall experience is not. The hotel design is hip but the room is not practical and the size is as compact as those typical Japan hotels. The...

I am the girlfriend of the poster below who the management staff responded to on February 8th. I'll start by saying that yes I do have a medical condition and this was explained to the management staff in detail who, as you can see from the response below, was not sympathetic AT ALL and cared more about charging us for...

I wanted to start by saying my girlfriend and I came here with full expectations of having a great time and really looked forward to staying at this property. First of all, this is NOT a luxury hotel and the rooms are way smaller than advertised. All the rooms facing North have the smell of sulfur (rotten eggs) that the...

ION_Adventure, Front Office Manager at ION Luxury Adventure Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Adam Thank you for the review. I have to say that it is exactly what I was expecting after our conversation yesterday. As clearly stated on our website and on all booking sites the hotel is located about 30-40 min drive away from the capital, therefore it is clear that there is no hospital close to the hotel. There...
