this hotel seems to be OK. My room was at the front of the hotel and people could look right into my room! Very noisy! There was something like a flush that kept waking me up during the night I am a light s,eyelet any way. Food is good. No tea/coffe in rooms. I would not stay here again.

When we first drove up, I thought, "Uh-oh! This place has seen better days." Then, when we found our room, it was the second one from the elevator and I knew we were in trouble. Not so! The room proved to be very pleasant with big windows and must have been well-insulated because we didn't hear much at all. We...

Stayed for one night on our way around Iceland. Would use it again. Breakfast buffet was one of the better ones we experienced. Wifi worked easily and reliably which was more than some of the places we stayed,

I try to be fair but truly can't find anything here to recommend this shabby, cramped and indifferent hotel. As for the food - I've eaten better in a school canteen. I'm baffled by several positive reviews ere. Did they upgrade from a tent on a lava field? because that's all this place is, just one step up. Most hotels...

Found it a good option for our family of four (in two rooms). Not much to do in Hveragerdi, but hotel not too far from Golden Circle. Worth a night or two while doing Ring...

Our room was very basic, almost to the point of being Spartan (no bedside lamps, for example, and a super slippery shower), but we found plenty to make up for that deficiency. The restaurant was excellent, if a bit expensive (not uncommon in Iceland). The Atlantic char was fantastic. The breakfast selection was varied, and my kids enjoyed the pool...

This is not a trendy or a boutique hotel, but it has what you need for a short stay. In comparison with many other hotels in the countryside of Iceland the rooms are rather big and we slept very well in quiet conditions during our one night stay. My reason for my overall view of the hotel is the restaurant....
