Stayed one night at Hotel Hvolsvollur during our Iceland trip in September 2016. Nice hotel if you are on a budget or if you just need to find a hotel in the area which there aren't that many. Certainly enjoyed the hot tub to relax our tired feed after a long day. Continental breakfast was included.

This is a great place where to stop driving back from the Golden circle and planning to continue your journey towards the southwest coast with a stop at Skogafoss to continue to Vik. Easy to find. Local shops and petrol station just 5 mins away. The room was not too bad. The bed quite comfy. It's not a luxury place... More

This was the first nights accommodation as part of my Across the Wilderness Tour of Iceland provided by Iceland Travel and being a solo traveller even I thought the room was a bit on the small size.

We stayed here for four nights as part of a volcano tour. It made a good location for visiting various attractions in the region. Our bed room was a decent size as was the bathroom. The set dinners our group were served were sizable but nothing to rave about. There is a grocery store nearby where we bought food for... More

Not particularly fancy but very clean and quite comfortable. The price is good and it's well positioned for touring the area. The immediate area has a decent choice of restaurants, grocery store, gas station and drug store. We came in from Amsterdam and it's a reasonable drive from the airport. Impressed with the woman running the front desk, most of... More

It has an unassuming facade and very little parking but inside it's wonderful. It's right off the ring road. Check in took about 30 seconds which was great since we came in very late and tired. The room was big and comfortable. Plenty of space. Bed, pillows, and blankets were very comfortable. Breakfast was nice. They had coffee, tea, juice,... More

Just off the Ring Road, this hotel was a good stopping point after completing the Golden Circle and before heading off east along the southern coast. The room was OK, big and clean. Bathroom was also clean and large - good shower. The hotel and rooms are a bit dated - could use better lighting, new carpeting in the halls... More

We visited this hotel as part of a tour and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and the food was excellent. Dietary requests were accommodated without fuss and everyone ate well. Service was good, polite and efficient.

The room was horrible and dirty with the blocked shower drain so it was impossible to take a shower (please see pictures). The breakfast area was also dirty and I didn't see anyone cleaning tables in the restaurant at all.

Stayed there for a night as a part of a tour. Clean comfortable room with a hairdryer. Nice hot tub, great wifi in room. Also had a kettle in the room to boil hot water. Dinner and breakfast options were great also. Would definitely recommend.
