We stayed here for one night on our drive around Iceland on the ring road. We had just finished a long day of sightseeing on the Golden Circle, and we were hopeful that we would have a decent, comfortable hotel room for the night. Hotel Kanslarinn did not disappoint. There is no sign for the hotel, so just look for the sign “Restaurant Kanslarinn”, which is attached to the hotel. You check in inside the restaurant. inside the restaurant. It was a good sized, but very basic room on the ground floor, but we were comfortable here. It was actually one of the nicer rooms we stayed in during our trip. Our rate included breakfast, which was served in the restaurant attached to the hotel. It was the best breakfast of our entire trip! We really appreciated the fresh cooked fried eggs. We did not eat dinner here, but I posted pictures of the menus they posted on the restaurant window. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
