Very good 8,0
Decent Hotel Right Outside Hofn
Nice location right outside of Hofn. Modern room with big windows. Good continental breakfast and very nice staff. It would be nice if the parking lot lights could be turned off to better watch the northern lights.

Loved their bread!
Great location for a two night stay. We especially enjoyed the fresh homemade breads at breakfast. Everyone was kind, helpful, and happy.

More Hostel than Hotel
Hotel is more like a hostel than a hotel. Fire alarm went on and off all night. Not very sound proof and you can hear people leaving rooms and talking. Food was good and staff was pleasent even though they could not figure out the alarm issue. Overclean and beds were ok.

Lovely place, great breakfast . Odd we paid the same for 2 rooms of very different quality, but we were only there for one night so it wasn’t important.

The rooms are good but need work on the shower rooms add you need somewhere for your clothes without getting them soaked. If you leave then outside the shower you risk being exposed when the main door is opened

Huge thumbs up!!
We thoroughly loved our stay! Great room with incredibly comfortable bed and spacious bath area (we opted for private room with private bath and loved our space). Enjoyed dinner in the dining room the night we stayed. It was delicious and beautifully presented. We were floored by the quality of and variety of options available on the breakfast that was included with our stay. Great base near Hofn - right on the Ring Road. Staff was beyond wonderful and so attentive. All in all one of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had! Can’t recommend enough!
