This hotel is a 'tour group' hotel so the basics are all met but nothing very exciting on offer. Fairly small rooms ( but many are in Iceland), fits 2 single beds, hanging space & a small desk. Ensuite bathroom with only shower curtain surrounding shower so whole bathroom floor gets wet. The view from the hotel is lovely and...

This hotel is set up for large groups and tours. The hotel does not have style. The rooms are functional. The front desk staff was grumpy. They did not smile or offer help. The breakfast was good and we especially enjoyed the gravlax. The wifi was not strong enough for FaceTime or Skype.

Nice, European, clean and tidy on the water in Hofn. Rooms are small but comfortable and many have views of the bay and glaciers on the other side. Quiet location though restaurant can get busy with tour groups. Good, full breakfast included, dinner in hotel restaurant is good, try the Lobster trio - lobster soup, roll and broiled lobster tails.

This hotel overall is ok. In a Scandanavian style with good sized rooms, plenty of parking and ok breakfast. The service is below average (e.g. the person at reception was on the phone talking to someone while she checked us out). But the price is just ridiculous. Almost double what we are paying for similar hotels elsewhere in Iceland, and...

This is certainly acceptable for a small town in Iceland. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. No elevator which is a pain if you are above level one. Food was above average. Staff friendly but distant. Not a bad option for this part of the world.

I thought that this hotel was really nice - very clean and in a good location. Apparently everyone wants a glacier view - in reality, they are still a fair way off, but still beautiful. On the first we couldn't see much as it was a bit hazy, but when it cleared, the views were great. I think we counted...

Its a little bit out of town so enjoy the walk to the harbour. As with other hotels there was no lift so we had to lug luggage up and down stairs. The restaurant was okay. I had the Lobster (Langoustines) as they are supposed to be the speciality of the area. Must admit I had better at other hotels...

The hotel is a good spot if you want to visit the glaciers and the Jokursarlon lake. The rooms are clean and beds very comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good value and cater for most Western taste. The hotel has a restaurant and reasonable prices. Hofn is a small town but they have some good...
