“Cozy and warm place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Árnanes Hotel is a cozy place to rest in the Höfn area. It's located by the Höfn Airport, however it's quite out of the city, approximately 10 minutes by car.
Cottage is well maintained with basic stuffs. Good bed and pillows. Bathroom was spotless. Room's view is superb. A bucolic and serene view of horses riding in the countryside. Just perfect for waking up.
Breakfast was complete. Plenty of options to start the day. Cereals, bread, cheese, ham, marmalades, juices, milk, coffee, and so on.
Staff is gentle and polite.
If you're going through the route 1 and need a place to rest, and do not bother of staying some miles away from downtown, may this place fits your expectations.

I stayed in this hotel during my last trip in Iceland, and it was pretty good. The cottages are clean, comfortable and not so small. Our cottage was a little bit cold, but we were in Iceland and it is normal. As italian man, let me say that I also appreciated the quality of the dinner served in the hotel restaurant: the lobster were awesome, as well as the "raw" lamb. The staff was great.

The rooms are very clean and it was easy to locate the hotel.
Check in was a breeze and breakfast was great (croissants, ham, cheese, cereal, fruits, yogurt, bread, hard boiled eggs).
We stayed in the basement in the main building but the walls are quite thin so you have to be careful not to make too much noise. Everything else was great and we would definitely return.

Very nice place. Not the Ritz, but as advertized and better than expected.

Very good food. Some of the food was grown on site and we could visit the garden.

EXTREMELY friendly and helpful people. We were on the circle route bus. The owner picked us up at a designated drop off site. The next day owner arranged for the bus to stop and pick us up AT the lodging location. The people were also helpful about things to see between their location and Reykjavik.

I would do this again!

Stayed one night in a cabin. The cabin was ok for a one night stay. The bed was ok as was the shower/bathroom area - small but it served a purpose. It is distance outside of Hofn, but really, it did not bother us. We ate in the town as no food was offered for dinner. Breakfast was excellent and well presented in the small but cosy eating area, which doubles as reception. On our arrival the owner was distant but all you have to do is smile, say hello, shake his hand and ask his name and you will find a nice decent bloke - who cares. For one night Aranes is good value, with an ok cabin.

Room Tip: Cabins are the go.

we went off season so the restaurant wasn't open for dinner, but the rooms were comfortable, warm, with a great view of open meadows with birds. The hotel is located 6 km out of Hofn which was the only disadvantage.
We didn't do the horse riding, but did enjoy the very diverse breakfast spread (chia and flax seeds and 5 different types of cereal? In Iceland?) Overall, great value for money.

We recently stayed in one of the cottages with a private bathroom. It was clean and comfortable and had a lovely rustic feel to it. The wi-fi was a plus but didn't reach all the way to our cabin (the owner did inform me of this during check in). It worked in the guesthouse during breakfast and when I stepped just outside the room, so it wasn't a huge deal. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Had a big window with a clear view, would have been perfect to spot northern lights.
