The boxy Fosshótel Dalvík building with its corporate flair will not be mistaken for a quaint, romantic location. But we found it to be a well-run property with many advantages that fully met, and to some extent exceeded, our needs and expectations. The hotel is located on the edge of the small town of Dalvík, right by the public swimming... More

Stayed here on a 10 day Ring Road tour. As is typical of Iceland hotels, it was expensive, but it wasn't exorbitant. And there was a free breakfast which was excellent. The best part was the free access to the swimming pool (2 min walk). I went at 6:15AM when it opened and I was the only one there. There... More

My family and I had breakfast at the Fosshotel. It was very good but when we asked for the bathroom the man in the reception informed us that they were all out of order and that we should walk over to the camping area and use the toilets there. I think they might have closed the bathrooms cause they don't... More

Clean. Certainly the quietest hotel I've ever been to. The breakfast was included and was fantastic: it included all the things you'd find at a typical Icelandic breakfast and then some. The room was a bit small by American standards but it was quaint. And clean. Nice showers.

Fosshótel Dalvík is located right at the entrance of this beautiful, enchanting town on Eyjafjörður. The room and the quality of service exceeded my expectations. One typically comes to Dalvík not to linger around in the hotel but to enjoy the offerings outdoors. This hotel provides the basics for a comfortable stay.

This was actually a very nice hotel by Icelandic standards. A double bed was a bonus and although the room was small the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom (again quite small) had good hot water and all I really needed.

Very nice reception from the receptionist, when we arrived. She really tried to sell the services of the hotel. She proved to be typical of the hotel. Very nice and forthcoming staff. The room was on 1st floor. No elevator. The room was tiny and simple, but clean. Good WI-FI Connection. OK breakfast (Fosshotel Standard)
