When you drive into Vik, it's absolutely gorgeous. The green mountains, black beaches and purple flowers with a church on the hill make it one of the more picturesque towns in a picturesque country.
This new hotel looked new and modern. The room was well appointed and on the larger side but spartan, and was my favorite hotel we stayed in. The bathroom was spacious. Plenty of room to spread out your bags, which was a bit rare in Iceland. The lights down the halls came on only when people were in them, which was a nice energy-saving touch.
Our room was on the back side, so our view was of the mountains. It did make the room darker, which was nice at night when it didn't get dark.
I'd highly recommend staying here. The town is beautiful and the hotel is great (and we definitely stayed in some "not great" places.)
