We stayed at this place for two nights in July and had a fantastic time. The breakfasts are excellent and the owner is very knowledgeable about activities in the area. The room was small (narrow) but comfortable. Will certainly book again when visiting the East Fjords.

My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel during our ring road trip. The outside of the hotel seems a bit outdated, but once you walk in, everything is updated. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and is more than happy to suggest things to do in the area. We stayed in the suite with a private...

Consider the source is how you end this review? Great because I think that says so much about yourself as a reviewer and still you are calling me a liar in your statement. Yes I had 3 bedrooms WITHOUT PRIVATE BATHROOMS available at your check-in time but was fully booked on bedrooms with private bathrooms that are my most popular...

I stayed at Hotel Bjarg in July for one night and had a wonderful time. The bathroom was shared, but as I was the only one on the floor, it made no difference. Karvel was there to welcome me on a late arrival and help me find food for the night even though most everything was already closed. He put...

Stayed for one night with two other adults and three kids. We got the big room upstairs that was clean and had good beds. The downside was that there was a ball next door and the windows are at street level so not very good for a child at that time. The host was not in a very good mood...

Thank you for a great review and glad you enjoyed your stay. I do try to run a comfortable environment for my guests and it seems like I might be doing it right. Thank you again and hope to see you at Hotel Bjarg soon.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and it was definitely the place that felt lie home with many beautiful paintings all around, and objects around the house that Icelanders are proud of. We were welcomed by a kind owner, who spent quite a lot of time advising us on what we can do in this Eastern region, on...

Granted the location of the town is a bit of, but the town is small and cozy, the hotel nice and clean. But what really stands out is the owner. Extremely accommodating and helpful, gave a lot of good tips where to go. Will definitely visit again if I'm in the neighbourhood again.

Lovely location with nice sunset walk, albeit in a pretty dull town. Bjarg offers small rustic terraced self-catering guesthouses which despite their snugness can comfortably fit 2 adults and 2 children. Friendly owner, able to accommodation a walk in reservation even in the off-season period.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Is one of the easternmost settlements of Iceland and Hotel Bjarg is a small but beautiful little Hotel in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. Hotel Bjarg is the ideal choice for your accommodation in Eastern Iceland and luxury at a reasonable price is offered by the hotel. The Hotel is built over running water which seems to have a tranquility effect on those who sleep here. The hotel is constructed with concrete and there is double glass in all the windows to quiet any unwanted exterior noise. Aluminum sheets cover all the outside walls and there is thick insulation within the walls to ward off the cold winter months or a cool summer night. There is central heating through the hotel and also extra heaters are located inside of all rooms if needed. The excellent construction of the facility insures that your stay at the hotel will be warm and safe within this mini fortress. The hotel offers free internet connections to the guests and there is no extra charge for the ocean front view from the bedrooms. There is a big wooden deck out of the banquet room that smokers like to use because there is no smoking allowed inside of the hotel. There is also a large gas grill out there and fish/meat can be barbequed if the weather is good.. The current owner has totally rebuilt the interior and has been operating the hotel for the last 5 years. Hotel Bjarg is one of the few Eastern Coast hotels that are operating on a full year basis to travelers and we are glad to provide you with excellent service that we have learned through the years! ... more   less
