We are on a trip around Iceland and staying at many types of guest houses and hotels. The Hotel had a good sized triple room in the main building and had a number of shared bathroom facilities on our floor so this was not an issue. The dining area and lounge were if a good size and warm. The bedrooms...

As you approach this hotel, it looks lovely. The reception and dining areas are both well decorated and spacious. Unfortunately there aren't many more redeeming features. The rooms are cramped, and although having a sink in the room is useful, there were only two bathrooms on our floor and we did have to wait a few times. There were bugs...

I stayed at Hof 1 with my husband and another couple on a vacation and was extremely disappointed with the stay. It started with the front desk attendant being extremely rude. When having a convo with my husband about confirmation numbers, she kept interjecting and cutting us off. At dinner, they only have one dish option for all guests. The...

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The views are fantastic. The rooms are simple but nice. Breakfast was good. Improvements: Hot tub needs updating. A kettle in the room would have been good. The heater in the room needs updating as it was not warm enough. If I was passing through I would stay...

Hey Iceland put us up in this location so we didn't pick it and after reading a review in lonely planet we had high hopes. The location was great and close to the glaciers. The room was clean. The reception staff was ok. The hot tub didn't work. The sauna didn't work. The winter season dinner menu was only one...

A boon for weary travelers on Xmas Eve/Boxing Day. We had been rudely turned away from other restaurants (Hotel Katla) on our way to our rooms here thinking we won't find anything for dinner since we were arriving late at 8pm but the friendly staff kindly stepped in to prepare us some delicious turkey for dinner (we were literally the...

We had spend Christmas Eve at Hof 1 Hotel and had love every moment there. We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant which was delicious and waiting staff really lovely and friendly. Our room was very clean, beds comfy but only temperature was a little too cold for us, which could be because we spend lots of time in hot...

Unfortunately we were unable to get two rooms or a family room at any other hotel hear Skaftafell and rather than stay too far away I chose Hof 1. My mistake. Where to begin: The front receptionist was in a sour mood every time I spoke with her. She acted as if I was bothering her by checking in/checking out....

We stayed here as it was close to Skaftafell where we had booked a Glacier Hike. We arrived late but just in time for dinner, which turned out only had 1 option - very overpriced meat soup. We weren't given any other option at the time but at check-out were charged 2.500/person as opposed to the menu price of 1.900/person...

We paid 170 euros to stay in a hostel-look-a-like. You can hear the neighbours chew, the reception staff is not very friendly. The 'spa' is ok: Jacuzzi (whicih did not work) and a sauna. If you have choice to stay somewhere else, please do. Worth 60 euros, definitely not more then that.
