Pros: Family of 3 adults, this was our 3rd night in Iceland, we had a double and a single bed. The place was easy to find with parking just in front. Our host left us a lovely note to welcome us and came by to greet us a bit later: lovely lady! The cottage was beautiful and very cosy: we felt at home and had plenty of room. We fell in love with it and it turned out to be our favorite place over our holiday! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, shower was great, beds super comfortable and we had TV with Netflix. It was the perfect place to stay near Hofn (we came from Vik). We would highly recommend this place.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: We showed up on the later side and the owner was able to squeeze us in for dinner - it was huge and delicious - we had mushroom soup, delicious bread, lamb, fish, and ice cream for dessert. They also had bottles of wine for sale for dinner. A local sheep family wandered the property outside the dining room window. Breakfast was a nice spread of the standard Icelandic food - toast, eggs, veggies, fruit, etc. The owner was very friendly and helpful with local sights. There is a great hike to a glacier that starts right behind the property, which we unfortunately didn't have time for (it took a several hours). The area is very peaceful and 20 min north of Jökulsárlón. There are single buildings, and we stayed in a row of 4 attached apartments (private bathrooms!). Everything was very clean and updated, plenty of parking.
9,2 Excellent

7,1 Good
Pros: The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and I really liked surroundings

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Being an American, this experience was really different than anything I'm used to. We told the receptionist that we planned on leaving very early in the morning, and she arranged to have breakfast set out for us, which was really kind. We saw aurora borealis from their driveway, which was the highlight of our trip. Free wifi as well.

Overview Reviews
Located in Hofn, Hotel Jökull is a 1-minute drive from Vatnajokull and 7 minutes from Silfurnes Golf Course. Free self parking is available onsite.
7,1 Good
Pros: Nice breakfast (buffet)
Cons: Worst beds we had. Single bed that are supposed to stay together to give you a double (like often in Iceland) but won't because they weight like a feather and cheap... Ceiling was dirty, baseboards were all off from the wall and/or dirty... I did know that shower and toilets were shared but honestly for the price, you can get better...
6,5 Good
Cons: Only one toilet per floor for men!
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The room was great, it had a little sink which was nice considering the WC is shared between so many. The staff were very nice and it was a short drive to town.
Cons: While the WC was fine, the ladies shower smelled strongly of urine and the floor seemed stained yellow. I did not enjoy that very much. Also the breakfast was mostly fish.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed two nights. Breakfast was provided free of charge. Quite basic but perfectly adequate with very good quality food. An added bonus in an expensive country. Lovely guesthouse with modern and tasteful furnishings and fittings Excellent location with own parking spaces adjacent to harbour, restaurants, cafes, information office and museum. Only a short walk to Netto supermarket, a mini-shopping mall and bank. Great welcome from Sindri, our very friendly, helpful and generous host who was happy to chat at length. Coastal walks direct from the guesthouse. Relatively short drive (for Iceland) to three glacial lagoons. Our favourite guesthouse/hotel (out of five) during our stay in Iceland. Would certainly pay a return visit.
Cons: Perhaps a chest of drawers or table in the bedroom? Didn't affect my 5*+ rating though.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Very welcoming staff, comfortable quiet room.large kitchen , excellent breakfast provided.
Cons: There was a bit of pressure on the shared bathroom in the morning.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast is not advertised but they do provide everything to have a good breakfast. The room was spacious and comfy. Good blinds. It was a pleasure to stay in the property - decorated with a lot of taste and homey. In the heart of Höfn.
Cons: We traveled in shoulder season and liked everything in this property, but there was only one toilet on our floor and I wonder whether it can get too busy during peak season.
8,0 Excellent

10,0 Excellent
Pros: It was in walking distance from the best restaurants and right in the middle of town
5,0 Okay
Pros: Beds were comfortable and the town is very quiet at night.
Cons: Unfriendly welcome by the host - we arrived after 10pm because we had a long drive but she clearly didn't like that. The guesthouse is really basic, with only one bathroom for all guests. Breakfast was a few slices of bread with cheese, cornflakes and tea. Absolutely poor value for money - there are better options in town.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The room is clean, the shared bathroom nice, and they provide self service breakfast
8,8 Excellent
Pros: When they are full, get there early if you want any.
Cons: No cooking after 9pm seemed unreasonably restrictive. We hadn't planned on added expense of eating out for dinner on our first night. Not the hosts fault, but another family got to it first and made sandwiches from all the cold cuts, leaving nothing for us for breakfast.

7,1 Good
Pros: the place was great for a night to crash. free room upgrade good breakfast
Cons: we arrived at breakfast 30 mins before the end of breakfast and the bacon wasn't topped up. when i asked the waitress if it was going to be they said no, which seemed strange as it hadn't closed yet. the room was ok but made us think what the room we booked must have been like as the upgrade wasn't very luxurious. We also know it is typical to have 2 single beds in iceland but a double sheet/bed cover would be a good addition.
7,1 Good
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable.
Cons: Front desk gentleman was not friendly during check-in process. I made reservation for dinner and as a solo diner, I was placed at a small table a few rows back from window even though there were small tables by window available the entire time I was eating. I felt I was not important to the staff. Hotel has no personality. Out of the nine accommodations I had in Iceland, this was my least favorite. They took my credit card for incidentals at check-in but at check-out they needed it again to charge my restaurant bill. Person at front desk said systems were not linked. Not sure why they needed it in the beginning.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel location is very quiet and wonderful. The view and you have a lunch is a little paradise. The dinner was so greattt, very tasty.

Pros: Good breakfast. Convenient location when travelling between Skaftafell and East Iceland (Borgarfjordur Eystri in our case). Easy check in and out. Nice views outside the hotel.
Cons: No Wifi in room. With many guests extremely tight parking despite secluded location. High room rate compared to other Fosshotels we stayed during our trip - definitely overpriced.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel, we got complimentary upgrade. The room is nice and comfortable. It has a back door to walk outside.The mountain and glacier view from the hotel is breathtaking. I had smoked sheep and langoustine for dinner , really enjoyed it. My boyfriend didn’t like his main course of ribeye, too tough to cut through . The waitress in the restaurant is not attentive, very cold, never had a smile on her face. The waiter was very nice. Breakfast was enjoyable. Overall I liked the stay . Hope they can improve their restaurant service.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The facility and staff were awesome! Chris and Michael treated us like royalty and the food was gteat too. Our stay was topped off with the Northern Lights from out own private balcony. We will highly recommend this stop to others as it will be a highlight of our Ring Road adventure for sure!
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The view
Cons: The staff of restaurant is too snobbish
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel, very new and clean. Modern with s beautiful view.
Cons: There’s nothing really nearby. But if you are driving around Iceland that’s really common. It’s a beautiful place with low population density so you can’t expect a Starbucks on every corner!
Guesthouse Hvammur - Hofn - Bedroom
8,3 Excellent (664 reviews)
R1 556+
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Guesthouse Hvammur in Hofn, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Vatnajokull and Huldusteinn Stone Museum. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
6,7 Good
Pros: It is tidy and clean
Cons: The room was very small, the facilities in kitchen were old, e.g. it was very difficult to cut tomatoes by the knife, there were only 2 bathrooms in total... Can't understand why the guest house in Hofn is so expensive (more than 1600 nok) while the guest house I am living today at Egilsstaòir is much less than it(2/3 of that price), include separated bathroom. Anyway, as a guest house it is acceptable.
7,5 Good
Pros: Great location right on the harbour. Close to restaurants. Kitchen pretty good. Bathroom shared but didn't have trouble getting in.
Cons: Tiny room. We booked months ago so surely we would qualify for a larger room??
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great place next to the old harbor. The host was great and the place was comfortable and warm. Love for sure I recommend it.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Homy filling. Equipped kitchen.

5,0 Okay
Pros: comfortable beds
Cons: dirty windows, not possible to open (just a tiny little bit), bad smell, overpriced considering the fact that there was no private bathroom and no breakfast, we were first woken up by the ships in the harbor at around 4:30am and later by people leaving their door open while packing and talking loudly

7,9 Good
Pros: Very convinyent
Cons: The price was very high Check in until 9 pm
5,4 Okay
Pros: It was very close to the water and a few good restaurants and had free parking
Cons: We didn’t realize we would be sharing a bathroom and shower, let alone with 4 other rooms of at least 2 people per room. Also I was told on arrival that I still needed to pay but I had received a payment confirmation via email when I paid in full upon booking. Also it said breakfast would be included but it wasn’t; there was just a shared kitchen for people to make their own things with their own food they bought themselves. Also the reception was confusing, you had to go upstairs but then there wasn’t anyone there so you had to call and it was inconvenient.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: very clean and cozy place
Cons: all was good
8,5 Excellent
Pros: -beds were comfortable -sink was inside our room (not available for all rooms) -breakfast was an option -there was a storm that entire day, and the owner advised us to stay inside the place without further charges. -as long as you expect a college dorm room-like facility, you'll be pleased with it. Clean, warm, and simple. -easy to find (for travelers who do not have a GPS)
Cons: -we woke up in the middle of the night because the storm blew several plastic chairs against our walls and windows until they shattered into pieces. -owner is slightly difficult to get in touch with (even while inside the guesthouse). He lives upstairs. -breakfast was supposedly at 730 downstairs, but the room did not open until 8 and everyone in the building was wondering who to ask and where to go for 30 minutes.

Hotel Höfn - Hofn - Building

6,3 Good
Pros: The main building was very nice and the woman at the check in desk was excellent.
Cons: Unfortunately, our room was located In a building across the parking lot. The room was extremely small for the price with little space for our luggage and no storage.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Staff went the extra mile to meet my request for a room with s bathtub. Much appreciated!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: All the staff members we encountered were very friendly and helpful. They even added us to the list of wake-up call in the event the Northern Lights appeared that evening. The included breakfast had a good variety of items and was of high quality. The views from the water-facing deck were very nice.
Cons: The shower stall was a little cramped, but typical of many European hotels.
3,8 Mediocre
Pros: Located near the center of Höfn.
Cons: First impression was a very bad smell in the room coming from the drain. Not a single case, read the other reviews. Water in the basin didn't drain because of hairs under the stopper. Main light in the room didn't work. Because of these three issues we wanted to talk to the management to ask for a partial refund. A personal meeting with the manager was promised for the next day in the morning, but when we were leaving the manager was surprisingly in a meeting. Really? We don't think so. So we agreed to leave our email adress and were promised to get an answer to our request, but never heard from them again. This is highly unprofessional and not in any way customer orientated. There can be problems with the room but ignoring the concers of your customers and avoiding a talk is unacceptable. We visited Iceland in the last 9 years for 13 times - this was by far our worst experience.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Good breakfast, clean room. Quiet room.

Pros: Hotel was located next to the sea with a friendly and helpful English speaking staff. There was a great breakfast buffet spread, with local herring and cheese/bread. Accommodation was basic but that's all you need when passing through Hofn.
Cons: Hotel food was pricey
6,3 Good
Pros: The common areas were fine and the hotel overall design feels like a pleasant flashback to the 1960s (when it was founded). Staff was rather friendly and welcoming overall.
Cons: The room in itself was a bit gloomy though decent, and the bathroom just stank (clearly, ventilation is an issue in the bathroom).
4,8 Okay
Cons: Poor amenities and over priced
8,8 Excellent
Pros: very nice breakfast!
Cons: the room was rather small and the hotel has no elevator, which meant going up 2 floors on stairs.
