My girlfriend and I stayed here at the beginning of February in a Studio Apartment. The hotel is of a very high standard and the all the communal areas (Bar , restaurant etc ...) were immaculate. The staff at the hotel were brilliant, Martin who was the first person we met there was very helpful and an absolute credit to...

My wife and me were at Hotel Grimsborgir last week, its a beautiful hotel. The family owned hotel is located perfectly for people who want to see the northern lights. Very well managed, only thing missing was litlle more vegetarian food option as we are vegetarians. The fire place near the bar is a really cute corner for a drink...

We stayed at the Grimsborgir for my husbands 40th birthday from 15-17th January 2016. I booked the luxury weekend special and we had an amazing weekend, hotel was spotlessly clean and the food served in the restaurant was delicious. Our room was beautiful which included private outdoor hot tub. Drinking wine in the hot tub while it's snowing - it...

We love to stay in interesting or very nice accommodations when we travel, and searching online I had a hard time finding anything in Iceland that looked like it met our standards. And then we found the Grimsborgir. This is a FABULOUS family owned hotel in the country outside Reykavik. We stayed in a deluxe four bedroom apartment which was...

We did drive 90km from Keflavik to join New Year's Eve in this place and it was like an oasis in the desert!

This hotel was not so much a hotel as a house. A very comfortable, cozy one. We had a serviced villa with 4 bedrooms (even though there were only two of us) and it exceeded our expectation with regards to accommodation. The open plan kitchen, dining, living area was comfortable with every possible requirement met. The hot tub outside was...

Our extended family had the four bedroom cottage and enjoyed the snow covered setting, the cozy scandinavian designed cottage (light hardwood floors, white kitchen, big windows with ledges) and the hot tub on the snowy nights. Breakfast had a lot of selection; dinner was expensive but also had a great buffet selection. The staff were extremely helpful and mapped out...

Stayed as a family of four for two nights in December 2015. Given the 4 hours of daylight at this time of year we didn't actually experience/ see the hotel other than at nighttime, so can't comment on the location. Our room was in one of the chalet-style lodges, which are spacious, decorated in a modern, slightly-more-luxious-than-Ikea style, and very...

Not many people had heard of this hotel but it is definitely worth trying. The room is very modern and stylish with a lovely view. The restaurant was a bit odd, with pink table cloths and a very loud pianist, but the food was excellent in the evening (less so the breakfast).
