We really enjoyed our stay at Viking Village. It is not a Ritz Carlton but it also doesn't cost as much as a Ritz Carlton. The breakfast is great. There are plenty of options for Europeans (meats and cheeses) and Americans (Corn Flakes and Granola) and there were at least two types of fresh bread for toast every morning. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The two of us are a handful so that is saying a lot. The hotel overlooks a serene harbor and the rooms are spacious (larger than you'll find in any Swedish hotel). Americans beware, the water smells of sulfur (rotten eggs). That is the way it is in Iceland because the hot water comes from the hot springs. This isn't what you are used to and neither were we. A quick fix to the shower problem is to go to the local pool!! Icelandic people love pools so there are a lot of them and we spent a couple dollars (I think $3) to go to the local pool/gym in the mornings. The water doesn't smell there because they filter it for the pool and hot tubs. We got some exercise and relaxation in before a full day of hiking and sightseeing. We will be staying there again and would recommend it to friends.
