Another good chain of hotel. Very natural and worked well in the setting with plenty of parking. Our room was light and airy, clean and we slept well. The set-up in the room however, was particularly strange – with a sink in the bedroom on a return unit from the wall with a mirror almost free-standing in front of the...

Nice modern hotel with views of mountains & glaciers. Friendly staff & great breakfast. Rooms were small but clean, well appointed & comfortable. Would recommend for value. Perfect for a night if you are traveling the ring road!

The location is great. Great place to stop before or after the Glacier Lagoon. The hotel is clean and modern. The wifi was on and off while we were there but they were working on the problem. Breakfast was included in our stay and was adequate.

Our room was 128. As we walked down the hallway, it seemed like the location of our room was in an older part of the hotel. Our room also looked different from all the travelers' pictures posted on TA (will try to post pictures later). We booked a standard twin room. The room was smelled very strong of a scent...

Lovely rooms, great view, super friendly service and good breakfast. We stayed as a group and were very happy with the place. Especially when the weather isn't perfect, the warmth inside is very welcoming.

We stayed for 2 nights, September 23 and 24 in a suite. The suite was numbered 119 "Markletettur". It was one of the nicest rooms we stayed in Iceland. (We were at the Ion Luxury and Vik Icelandic before the Foss--the Siglo, Egillsen, afterwards) I would recommend upgrading to a suite as you get about 4xs the room space and...

Had the pleasure of arriving at the Fosshotel around 8.30pm after driving in the wind, rain and fog. What a pleasure it was to drive down the driveway and see a warm and inviting place to stay. The check in staff were friendly and told me i was going to like the room. We walked down the hallway and I...

After all the hotels we already stayed in on our Ring Road tour this was a let down. A nice big room but each bed had one skimpy pillow, almost the size of an airplane pillow. For the first time we had plastic glasses and paper mugs - not very classy. The breakfast was their saving grace. If you look...

Room and bathroom was spacious. Very modern and hip design with Icelandic nature embossed into it. It's a place to stay for a night or two while visiting the nearby sites. Staff are friendly. Wouldn't mind staying here again.

This hotel is not in downtown Hofn, so if you've reached Hofn (heading east on Rt 1) you've gone too far! It's right on the ring road, but is not well-lit if you are getting there at night. Hotel is beautiful and very modern. Our room was great, and had a very unique shower/sink/WC set-up. The area surrounding the hotel...
