Rooms are compact but with high ceilings. They have hip feeling. Small number of rooms all with doors facing outside. Our family (including teens) were happy with this choice. Note: TripAdvisor seems to list the address as Borgarnes - but the hotel is 45 minutes N of that town. It is in the SE corner of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. There is not much immediately around the hotel. The best feature of this hotel, in my opinion, is the attached restaurant. I've added a fuller review under Rjukandi Kaffi. Nice setting and great value for a very good meal. We ate there the night we stayed at the hotel - and then returned the next night just for dinner. Good price/value overall.

We stayed here for one night while traveling the Ring Road. Great location, clean, comfortable and good-sized room with very comfortable beds. The young woman who checked us in was very friendly and literally walked us to our room. She also gave us a tip on a nearby hidden waterfall that we we visited the following morning. Dinner was very good and the portions generous. Breakfast had plentiful buffet options (standard for Iceland) but all great quality and the late' was the best we had while in Iceland. Would definitely go back again.

Hotel Rjukandi is a tiny spot, but our travel company put us up here. I’m glad they did. Very nice, clean, comfortable, up to date rooms. The restaurant is special. Creative menu and really good food. A good value spot too. They have a cool little coffee shop up front with interesting baked pastries and cakes. The people who run this place were so nice. When we arrived they gave us a map of the area with hand written notes and directions to interesting sites in the area.

Room was nice and clean. Unfortunately overall experience was let down by the restaurant. The fish and chips were very poor quality (worst food I ate during week long holiday). At the breakfast the following morning, workmen came in and coughed over the food and touched food with unclean bare hands. Extremely off-putting.

We were so impressed with the excellent service at this small and cosy hotel. We needed a later check in which was no problem and when we arrived, we were given a map of the area and were given lots of helpful advice and ideas of where to go and what to do (the next day, we used these recommendations and had the nicest day we had had in our whole stay in Iceland). The room was very comfortable and warm. We loved the breakfast in the mornings. Good amount of choice and everything was so tasty. My partner loved the smoked salmon and I really enjoyed the pastries. Beautiful, secluded location so if the lights were to come out, you’d see them from outside your room (we didn’t get lucky unfortunately!).

This little hotel is perfectly situated to explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The rooms were very nice, free wifi, breakfast included. The rooms even had lovely hand made wool blankets to snuggle up in. The staff walked us to the room to make sure we knew how to operate everything & had everything we needed. The rooms have names instead of numbers. They had also prepared maps of the area with hand written notes showing the hilights of the area & where they were. In the room was a binder with more information on the area, how to get to different sights, and fun facts about Iceland. Did you know that there are more sheep than people in Iceland?

We stayed two days at this location and found all aspects exceeding our expectations. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served vs buffet style, with tables assigned based on our room name. Dinners were delicious and wait staff attentive. Best of all is that they called out all the key points of interest on the peninsula provided in a detailed map.

So glad we stayed here. The location allowed us to have the perfect amount of time to see the Snaefellsness sights in a clockwise direction in one day (next night in Stykkishólmur). We loved the quiet countryside location. The room was very clean, and breakfast was delicious. It was served in courses with a personal touch. After breakfast the receptionist spent several minutes with us writing out her sightseeing tips on a map for us to take and answering questions. Truly appreciated! Also - due to a hectic travel schedule, we asked for an after-hours check-in and the owner was kind enough to meet us and make that happen. Would definitely stay again!

Last weekend was the 4th time me and my family stayed at Hótel Rjúkandi. It is not a given to get fantastic service, great food and smiling and helpful staff all the time, but that's the case for us and that's why we always come back. The chef is always trying something different and he uses the fresh food he gets around the area and it's always delicious. The hotel is perfectly placed, it does not take long to drive to the most beautiful places Snæfellsnes has to offer. I can not recommend this hotel enough and it's wonderful staff. Thank you so much for everything last weekend. We will be back for sure.
