Superb 9.0 From 120 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Hot water does have a smell but that is normal in the area. Billard/Pool in the lobby for the kids (and adults). Very good restaurant. Room was a bit small but functional. Very good location.

Friendly staff!
The front desk receptionist was really nice. I originally booked a room with 4 beds. But there was some bad smell coming from the bathroom after we went inside. The receptionist quickly came up with us and said something wrong with the drainer closure and he exchanged us to two rooms instead. The hotel is also very next to Skútustaðagígar.

Poor 2.0
Icelandic roadtrip
The hotel is very outdated with green carpeting. When we got to our room the heat was not working. After about 20 minutes someone tried to fix the heat but it still did not work. I asked for another room but there were none available. They gave us a small space heater which warmed half the room and left the other half cold. The shower also smelt terrible, like sulfur. This was our least favorite hotel in Iceland.
korina, us1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
No major complaints
It was hard to get the waiters attention in the restaurant and they didn’t seem very interested in serving diners. Also be aware that it is quite a big hotel by Iceland standards.

Excellent with lots of things to see in Myvatn!
This beautiful hotel is close to the Myvatn lake, with lots of visiting trails at walking distances. The staff is very helpful, and has a wake-up service for watching northern lights. We had a little problem - the bathing water is not hot. The staff attended to the matter immediately, so my wife could have a good bath. We had a great dinner there to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. The buffet breakfast is excellent too!
