The three-wing hotel Hekla was a great experience for our first night in Iceland. It poured rain....all day.....and even though we were soaked and tired from driving, we immediately felt at home when we arrived. Although our rooms weren't ready when we arrived, we were escorted into a elegantly decorated dining room and offered refreshments and an amazing date/nut bread while we waited. The hostess was attentive and accommodating, and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay amazing. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the geothermal showers were hot and inviting. The Hot Tub in the rain was a wonderful way to top off a cold rainy night.
Definitely recommended if looking for quiet, out of the way comfort while planning for the next leg of your journey. The wi-fi was fully operational and provided a connection to the outside world while exploring the areas to the south and east of Iceland. Dinner was excellent and the complimentary breakfast was VERY high quality! YUMMY!
Definitely a great experience and we would definitely stay there again!
