We enjoyed 1 night accommodation here at Hof 1. The room was cosy and clean, it was nice to have a sink but the walls are paper thin. We ate at the restaurant which is very overpriced and not worth the value or cost.... I would suggest Freynses 15km down the road for half the price, double the value. Breakfast...

We stayed here after the vatnajokull national park. The hotel has a small kitchen. The rooms are an ok size but the top floor has shared bathrooms. Only 2 bathrooms. We had to wait a while to be able to use the them. It doesn't have a lift at all so was difficult to carry our suitcases after 6 hours...

We stayed here for a night on our 10 day tour of the ring road. The check in went very smoothly, the rooms were clean and the shared bathroom facilities as well. The only minus was the breakfast - a bit poor compared to other hotels and guesthouses we stayed at in Iceland.

We had a nice stay there for a night in a cleaned and quiet room in a nice surrounding. Being able to have a bath in a spa while getting around iceland is also very pleasant even though the hot tub was .... dirty. The breakfast was OK. The prices there are still absolutely high but its one of the...

We stayed here for two nights, and we had a very pleasant stay. Kind and helpfull staff. Daily fresh towels, good beds, free wifi and a variety of breakfast-choices included in the price. There was a hot tub (non bubbling), a sauna and some hot showers downstairs. Everything you need indeed. Couple of negatives were that there was a limited...

If you're wanting to stay in this part of Iceland, there aren't many options. We stayed here as it was fairly close to the Glacier Lagoon (~30 minutes or so away), and it worked great for that. There were a few drawbacks. We had a room with a shared bath, and even in winter, we had trouble getting use of...

Stayed here for 3 nights in February. The location is convenient and easy driving distance to Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon, Skaftafell and Vatnajokull national park. Room were a decent size and clean. Good wifi. There is a hot tub and sauna but unfortunately they were both cold. Breakfasts and dinners good. Would stay again.

Staid there for 2 nights in February. Rooms are small with OK beds. Staff at reception and at the restaurant is excellent. Food at the restaurant is above average in Iceland. Not too much variety but quality is good. The problem is a maintenance of their grounds. We had a snow storm for 2 days and no one bothered to...

Positives: The staff - friendly and helpful. They kindly gave us 2 jugs hot water when we asked for it. Shared bathroom was clean. Convenient and close to Skaftafell National Park and Jokulsarlon (Glacier Lagoon). But this, and the lack of alternatives, also explains the price tag... Negatives: No tea/coffee facilities in the rooms/in the hotel except for at breakfast....

The Hof-1 is in a great location for a 1 or 2 night stay whilst visiting the the wonders on the south eastern side of Iceland. Our room was tiny with 2 single beds and the bathroom was not for the clostrophobic! We did sleep well though, probably due to the long drive from Reykjavik. Wi-fi reception was good in...
