We had a 3 single bed room and had a nice stay at the Puffin Hotel in Vik. Clean bathroom and good beddings.Friendly staff and nice breakfast, it's a good place to stay overnight in Vik! I'll be staying here again for a night.

The Puffin Hotel also has a hostel so there are a lot of people passing through the area. I loved the location. On site parking. There is a grocery across the street. You can easily walk to the black sand beach, they also offer horseback riding on the black sand beach and many other excursions can be booked from here...

We stayed here for one night on a mini tour of south Iceland. There wasn't a lot of choice on booking around Vik (350 population) but the Puffin Hotel is a great place. The room was a good size, it was very clean, the bathroom was nice and the hotel was quiet. Breakfast was fine, good selection of things to...

Very friendly staff and great position to visit the southern coast. Vik is not big at all and the city itself does not offer much, but it's a great point to stay for one or 2 nights because there are a lot of things to see and to do all around the area. The breakfast was great and tasty with...

My friend and I booked here last minute on our trip to Iceland and it didn't disappoint. The location is a good proximity to points of interest, it's exceedingly clean, the employees were kind and helpful (Lucas and Anna thank you!) a short walk and you're on the breathtaking black sand beaches or if you go in the other direction...

We stayed in the hotel for a night. Nice clean hotel room, decent bed, clean bathroom with good shower and access to the carpark directly from the room. Great breakfast with a lot of choice and really friendly staff in the hotel. Eating out was good at the Icelandair Hotel, as recommended by the receptionist. Wifi is available, but don't...

the hotel is in a great location if you want to walk/hike, there are lots of trails around and the sea is stunning in this area. We had a terrace room in the newer part of the building. We didn't use the terrace, mainly because it was raining but it also looked onto a blank wall. Our room was obviously...

This is a rip-off. This is what happens if you take advantage of the fact that a lot of tourists come to your place and you want to make a lot of money without putting any effort in it. This is a goldmine for the owners. The hostel is terrible. If you consider booking this, go elsewhere. It was the...

Unnur J, Manager at Puffin Hotel Vik, responded to this review

The building is over a century old, which is in our description. It is a historical building and therefore there are limited options to what changes we can make. Over 100 years ago Icelanders were much smaller, therefore the small rooms. This used to be a fancy Hotel. Wifi not working properly is unfortunate, but a common thing in the...

It's an OK hotel with the advantage to be next to a very good restaurant. It is very oddly decorated but it is clean enough and quiet enough. If you manage to find a better place to stay in Vik, please do it, but if not, it is an ok place.
