“Excellent place to stay on Heimaey”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We spent one night here. Hotel is very new..only completed in easy 2014. Its very centrally. located. Hotel and rooms have lots of windows and are very warm and inviting,
We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and effiecient. If you have car there is a free parking lot directly across the street.
Rooms were a good size ..standard Icelandic twins pushed together with duvets, lots of storage space and large shower. Nice wood floors and of course very clean
Free wifi which works in the rooms.
Breakfast was standard Icelandic..great bread and coffee with lots of cold. cuts, cheese etc. Supply of everything was well maintained
The place to stay on the island !

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking the lava fields

We stayed two nights in Hotel Vestmannaeyjar and we thought the stay was good. The hotel is located in a good central location and you can get to most of the island by walking from the hotel. The rooms were clean and modern and the reception was very helpful in giving us information on where to eat and where to see certain sights. We would recommend staying here again if given the chance.

We found this hotel comfortable, clean and welcoming. It was convenient for the harbour and the town centre. Our spacious room had views of "the Pompeii of the North" and the volcano of Eldfell. The breakfast, served in the restaurant, was excellent with a varied choice of food. We felt that the room was short of coat hangers but we were supplied with more very quickly. The only downside to the room was that it was short on drawers and cupboard space. We stayed for four nights which, we were told, was unusually long but it gave us time to see much of the island and its attractions. Even so, we didn't see everything and we may well return in a future year.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Vestmannaeyjar and our visit to Heimaey. The staff was very helpful and took care of everything from booking tours to restaurant recommendations. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Vestmannaeyjar islands and a stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the volcano.

I've stayed at "Hotel Vestmannaeyjar" twice. Once in 2010 and again in 2014. The new owners have really outdone themselves with the expansion. Everything is modern and new. It also helps that the restaurant on the main floor is the finest in the town. The staff were amazing, Especially the owners son Frikki. The showers were amazing. The toilets felt nice also. The only weird thing about the hotel is that they don't accept tips. 5/5 would stay again.

It was hard to find this hostel because it was not clear on the Hostelling International site. Not to mention it was on a one-way street on which there was construction so the only way to get to it was to go the wrong way! Oy that took us a while to find.

Got checked in fine. We were in a large group but were practically the only ones there which was nice. Kitchen was well equipped with lots of storage space. Even had a clothes washing machine to use!
Rooms and toilet facilites were clean and beds were comfortable.

Only problem is that wifi does not reach the hostel. You have to go and sit in the hotel lobby to use wifi.
I would totally recommend it.

We had the honor of being one of the first guests in the completely renovated new hotel. The hotel and the rooms are excellent but what makes the stay unforgettable is the hospitality of the owners and staff. They are ready to share the best tips for making your stay at the island the best.
