Standard hotel with quite big rooms and hot spots both at the hotel and short hiking trip from the hotel (warm river you can swim in :-)). Very interesting location, strange architecture - supposed to be Japanese - and very good cuisine in a hotel restaurant. Worth a stay.

This is a large commercial style hotel with a very large dining room, helpful staff and large swimming pool with a large slide used even in cold temperatures, wind and rain. The rooms are not overly large with comfortable beds and small bathrooms with very narrow bathtubs and good lighting. The breakfast buffet offered a fairly standard Icelandic style breakfast...

The hot tub was hot, and a little bit too tubby for my liking. The swimming pool had floating faeces in it, which is not ideal. The menu was horrific as there were no chicken dippers. The only good thing was the beds were springy ;), me and my life partner enjoyed it very much! The toilets were so small,...

We happened to stop at Hveragerdi, and lucky for us there were accommodation at Hotel Ork, which actually means "Arch" ( after the Genesis' shipowner). This somewhat strange looking hotel building,- to be in Iceland, and with some retro atmosphere, is really worth a stay. The swimming pool and the adjusting hot basins were excellent, even to Icelandic standard. Personally...

Hotel Ork is in the thermal/horticultural village of Hveragerdi, about 30 km SW of Reykjavik on Iceland's Route 1 ring road. It is a convenient 85-room stopover on arriving at Keflavik (Reykjavik) airport or before departing, if you don't want to go into Reykjavik, or for touring the Golden Circle (Pingvellir, Geysir, Gullfoss, Blue Lagoon etc.) in SW Iceland.

Clean, quiet,, comfortable. Did not eat in the dining room, but the breakfast was more than adequate. Hot pools not hot enough for my taste, but the sauna was. This would be a good hotel if you were traveling with children.

I enjoyed a long weekend here with a big group of friends. The hotel was very accommodating of our large group and performed an outstanding job with food and arrangements. The warm and hot pools outside were the perfect way to chill after an active day. Rooms were basic hotel standard but clean and nice.

An hour drive from Reykjavik The Ork is a quiet location with a nice staff. This is a quiet location in a town with only a few small restaurants. A grocery shop (the Bonus) is just down the road. In the same location there is an average bakery-coffee shop.
