I have travelled all over the world, stayed at top level 5 stars hotels (for work travel), friendly guesthouses and everything in between. Last week I took my wife to Hotel Glymur, a magnificent hotel almost in our backyard (45 minutes away from Reykjavik) for a romantic getaway and man, I can truly say the Hotel Glymur is the best hotel I ever stayed at. Everything comes together at this small, family run hotel - fantastic nature and view, athmosphere, friendy and helpful staff, hot tubs, the northern lights (in winter time), magnificent food, etc, etc. Coming back home after one night at Glymur, it felt we had been away for a relaxing week. If you live in Iceland, this is the place to take your husband/wife for a mini break, if you live outside of Iceland, Hotel Glymur is the place to stay at in Iceland. Last place I recommended highly here at TripAdvisor was a cabin in Frutillar in Chile and Gaston's hostel in Puerto Madryn, in contrast to many, I only write about places I like and can recommend to others. At Hotel Glymur, just as in Frutillar and Puerto Madryn, the owners will treat you like family members (meaning family members that you love and like!), this is what is so valuable when travelling. Can't wait for the next visit to Glymur!
