Fortunately I had the opportunity to stay for a while in this unique hotel this year, that offers unlike most other anonymous and "sterile" hotels a very family-like atmosphere and the whole decoration and every single article of daily use is well chosen and seems to be a part of an art collection.
The location is of amazing beauty and looking onto the fjord will never get tiring, rspecially while sitting in the hot tubs under the Northern Lights with a glass of wine.
And if you are interested in learning to know more about icelandic people, there will be a lot of possibilities to talk or celebrate together with members of the staff. I am especially thinking of my last evening, when one of the cooks and another guest from the UK entertained us with competing with each other at the guitar. You won't experience things like this in an ordinary hotel.
I will return as soon as I can. Do yourself a favour and spend your holidays here, too.
