I stopped here for dinner and enjoyed it very much. The restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and a large menu with an extensive drink list. They have several local specialties including the popular lamb shank. The restaurant is popular amongst guests of the hotel and visitors alike. I would recommend Midgard to anyone traveling through southern Iceland.

Property's Favorite Review
Bottomline: The beauty and splendor of Iceland isn't Reykjavik ... it's the countryside. So how do you get closer to the magic - by staying at Midgard. Service: Simply unbeatable. Over the past two years I've taken 30+ trips across Europe. The service at Midgard is hands down #1 of 30. Marriott or Hilton Gold/Platinum don't get the kind of TLC the staff here provides. In my particular case, I was looking forward to doing the Fimm Hike. Not only did the team provide updates on route conditions (less than 12 hours old) and real time weather updates in the morning, but when they hadn't seen me by 22:30 the next day they were about to start calling and make sure I was alright. Major props to Stefan, Gina and Aldi for their support - I would not have gone #fullsend on Fimm without your input. It's one thing to tell someone "you shouldn't do that", it's another to explain precisely the risk and challenge involved to help make an informed decision ... they definitely did the later (and the hike was the highlight of my trip). Accommodations: I'd classify Midgard as a rugged hotel. Don't expect a big screen TV and Netflix in your room because you're not getting it ... but then again that's not why you came to Iceland is it? The rooms are a perfect "basecamp" - comfortable, spacious and provide everything you need. In addition, the shared spaces are stellar from the restaurant (shout out to a killer chef), lounge, and hot tub/sauna. Location: Simply put, I wish I spent longer here. Reykjavik is a convenient location to snag tours from, but you lose the true essence of Iceland. From Midgard you can hit waterfalls, hikes, glaciers and volcanoes. Waterfalls: 15 min east - I'd butcher the name, but super impressive Hikes: All Over.. Fimm Hike trail head is at Skogar (35min east); even if you just hike 2.5 miles up you'll see 7-10 different waterfalls Glaciers: 2.5 hours east; this is a bit of a haul, but I hate moving hotels so I think it's worth it. Plan it as a full day and make a stop at the glacial lagoon before or after (Active) Volcano: 1.5 hours west. This is admittedly easier to hit from Reykjavik, but the point remains you can definitely hit it (combine with a blue lagoon stop for a day trip). Simply put, when (not if) I come back to Iceland, I will stay at Midgard again. To say they are professionals at what they do is too cold. It's like you're their long lost cousin and they want you to have the time of your life. Note: Midgard offers their own tours (Midgard Adventures) which are likely the bomb. I was too stubborn and planned everything out, but definitely an opportunity for those wanting some guide rails to see the brilliance that is Iceland. Thanks again gang!

Great place! They make you feel like home. Excellent service from all the staff. Great food for breakfast and dinner. Was easy to get to the place and saw they offer tours services. But didn’t used them.

Stayed for a night and enough for what I really needed somewhere to crash. Atmosphere was nice and the hot tub on the roof is a selling point with a stunning view! I’d stay again if I ever come back to iceland. Highly recommended

We selected Midgard as our basecamp location before taking a bus into Thorsmork for an overnight/hiking adventure and very much enjoyed our stay. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the food was amazing and it was a short walk to our monster bus pick-up/drop-off point. We hope to stay here again and to share it with friends!

The hotel is well located. (20 minutes from beatiful waterfalls). We arrived early at noon and were not really welcome because of expecting bus of turists. So we could not stay a bit for lunch and wait till check-in. No coffee at the bar after 10 pm, all was closed. The option was the self service kitchen but it's not nice to have a coffee there if there is a bar and restaurant. The room lacked shower pipe and trash bin bag, table and chairs to sit so you have to sit on bed only. Nice design but too much industrial, my expectations for friendly hotel was lowered.

We booked the family room for our family of 6. This was our first stay in a "hostel" but it felt more like a luxury hotel. The room was spacious and the bathrooms were sparkling clean. Staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The laundry and shoe dryers were very nice after a day of hiking in the rain. The bar and lounge are super cute and we enjoyed a drink there. We wish we would've stayed for dinner instead of trying Valhalla nearby. We also enjoyed saying hi to "Hekla" the owner's black lab. We highly recommend this place!

It was Nice clean and friendly hotel. Great central location to drive to (to Geysir or Gulfoss waterfall) or move to the east (close to pretty waterfalls Seljalandfoss and Skogafoss and u will see more, Vik black beach, Glazier Lagoon) Sauna and hottub are at the rooftop. Staff very friendly. Close to supermarket and gasnstation. I came late so they prepared information with the key at the board. Great comminucation. Staff extra friendly, nice, polite and informative, I had to change date of my arrival and they helped me with any hestitation. I would love to stay there again when I am in Iceland.
