Book a cabin at hotel Brimnes. The 2 bedroom cabin was cute and reasonably private. The outdoor spa is a nice place to look at the snow caped mountains. Olafsfjordur is a small town and there isn't much there so you will have to go to the next town for better selevction, particularly during winter when most things are closed....

Excellent location with beautiful view in the fjords, the cabin had everything we needed! The hot tub was very clean and easy to use and we spent most of the night in the tub! I would definitely recommend staying here. Be careful with the step on the front porch - it is very easy to stub your toe and there...

You can tell straight away that this is a family run hotel, friendly reception and clean rooms. The breakfast buffet included tasty chopped up portioned fruits which they prepare each morning, nice touch. I've also heard that their cabins are the bomb. Thank you so much for your awesome hospitality beautiful people!!! I'll be back ;)

This was a one night stopover whilst touring Iceland but could have been longer it was so peaceful. I had the best night sleep. Northern lights did not appear but I imagine it would be a magical place if they did. The cabins themselves were spotless with everything you need including wifi. Really comfy beds. The hot tub was fun-...

The best feature was a hot tub on the cabin porch. It was cold and rainy when we arrived, so the first thing we did was fill it up so it would be ready to use. The cabins have a main bedroom on the first floor with two beds, bathroom, and kitchenette with table. There is a loft above the...

We stayed in one of the cabins. The walls, floors, ceilings, doors are made of a uniformly monochrome honey pine. That's not a great look - dark and oppressive. Bit tired inside. Tiny double bed gave us backache. Hot tub showing its age - bit stained. Odd collection of kitchen ware. Egg slicer, mixer and waffle maker never got close...

Nice spot. We even saw the northern lights from the deck. The hot tubs are really nice. You should provide a switch to turn of the porch lights so one can see the night sky. We ended up tripping the breaker to get the lights off.

“Book one of the 2-3bedroom cabins as the have the best view. 3bed cabins have the best view and are more private. Showers are really small so be aware if you are clostrphobic ”
