Stayed at the hotel Ranga for two nights. Wasn't impressed! Don't understand the other ratings at all. We had a standard room, more like basic. The bathroom, well. A corner bath. With a shower on the wall but no shower curtain, so we had to sit in the bath to have a shower or you soaked the bathroom. The sink cupboard to the side was all warped, obviously from other quests not worrying about the lack of curtain. The shared hot tubs, shared is fine but in full view of the restaurant is not fine. There should be a screen around them. The beds weren't great either, far two soft. A dirty mug was left in our room for two days. And after a long day trekking/enjoying the wonderful scenery the room was the last place we wanted to relax in, there was only one chair anyway, which had seen better days.
This was the fourth hotel we stayed at on our trip to Iceland, this was by fair the worst. It took the shine of our week, a real shame as its a wonderful country. If you have to stay here eat in Hella the prices at Ranga are crazy!
I wouldn't go back to the Ranga!
