Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast buffet included in the lodging price was excellent in its variety and quality! Loved its view of the surrounding lava field with geothermal activity. Enjoyed the community rooms with their homey feel. Can’t beat its proximity to the Blue Lagoon, Fagradalsfjall volcano and Grindavik!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I wanted to love this place, but the pictures are so misleading. This property sits feet away from a huge geothermal plant that causes the entire hotel to tremble ALL day/night long. Not to mention it smells like pure sulfur gases, which is the equivalent to rotten eggs. The staff were every pleasant and the food was good. The rooms were comfortable. We were surprised the rooms did not come with a small fridge. Very odd. They also cleaned the room and never offered clean towels, even though most of our towels were used/wet and on the floor of the bathroom.

Quiet, clean, comfortable, courteous….what more can you ask for? Very friendly desk staff walked us briefly down the hall to show us community room and how to get to our room. Room was very nice and everything was perfect. Breakfast had a large variety of flavorful foods. AAA
