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

The hotel is located in a truly Majestic area with views of Mountains and Glaciers that surround. The restaurant and bar have a nice selection and found that the food and drinks were very good. The service at the front desk and in the restaurant was very good. The hotel rooms however were Very Small including the bathroom which has No Room for any of your own toiletries and the Shower is just a corner unit which is Very Small. The Bed is hard, we had to use the only bedding as a mattress pad just so we could sleep. The room was also very hot and although in the hotel description it says air conditioning, there was no way to turn it on. Unfortunately we were on a corner room with one window that faced the exhaust fan for the hotel and on the other side the window faced where the employees smoked outside right below the window, so in both cases the windows could not be open. The location of the hotel, the restaurant and the Service were worth the price of the room (expensive), however the rooms themselves need a lot of attention.

Expensive But Worth It.
Just stayed for two nights. It’s expensive, but the size and layout of our room were the best experienced on our 9-day trip and the restaurant was also well above average. The staff is excellent. What a great feeling to return here after a day of sightseeing. If you can splurge, you should.

Way Way overpriced for what you get
Room was very small. Bathroom was nice as the floor was heated. TV did not have hardly any channels and the few I could have watched were all scrambled up so I did not get to watch any TV. On a positive note, restaurant on site was quite good. I stayed in 6 different hotels on my Iceland trip and this had the worst room I had and was twice the price of my other hotels. All in all, I thought this hotel was outrageously overpriced for the type of accomodations we had and I would never stay here again for this reason. Rip off.
