Fosshotel Vatnajokull, Hofn, Iceland
Less value for money
Nice location. Good views from the property. The receptionist at night was excellent but the one in the morning should consider moving out of hospitality industry. I felt that I paid too much for what I got. The worst part was that the wifi did not work in the rooms. I had problens with mobile network in the room as well. The glacier very close to the property is a nice thing but I would look for alternative places to stay in the area

Beautiful hotel with an AMAZING view
The hotel was fantastic. It is located outside of Höfn and has a spectacular view of the glaciers. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and the heated bathroom floor is nice feature. Their staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The breakfast was amazing and included when booking the hotel which is a huge plus. Breakfast included baked bread, jams, eggs, beans, cheese, nuts and dried fruit and the most important item...Skyr. Nothing like it in the States and what we loved the most We had dinner in their restaurant one night and it was one of the top five meals we had during our stay in Iceland. Worth every ISK. A special thank you to Giselle. She was very helpful, incredibly kind and very thoughtful. I was traveling with my pregnant daughter and Giselle made sure she was comfortable and well fed. THANK YOU We will absolutely stay at the Fosshotel again.

Fine hotel
We were upgraded on arrival so a promising start. A very smart hotel. The wifi was good and we had a fine meal in the hotel. The breakfast was excellent and the lunch pack you could buy was excellent value - go for it.

Friendly hotel outside of Hofn
This hotel is about a 15 min drive to the main Hofn town. The room was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly. The bar had a nice selection of local craft brews and spirits.

Fantastic hotel in the middle of nowhere!
We arrived really late having driven from Reykjavík aurora spotting on the way - called ahead to let them know and they were fine, even got an upgrade on our arrival at 1am!
