You always have to take advantage of deals when you can when visiting Iceland because things can add up. Happy hour from 5-7 at the bar was a great start to our stay. Two for one drafts and wine. We had a delicious table d'hôtel meal (starter/main/dessert) which was pricey but we saved money by doubling up on the wine...

We stayed one night here and were pleased with our choice. Our room was in the older part of the hotel and was ok but nothing to get excited about. It was priced accordingly so that was expected. It was though clean and comfortable. The best thing about this hotel is the location - absolutely spectacular views and because of...

This hotel is stunning. Surrounded by lava fields and mountains, Fosshotel offers seclusion mixed with high-end Scandinavian design. The dinner is amazing (recommend the lamb, of course) and they offer 2-for-1 drinks during Happy Hour. Though too cloudy during our visit, this location would be perfect for viewing the Aurora. It is also situated in reindeer country and close to...

We stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring the surrounding area, and it was perfectly tranquil. The only drawback is being limited to the very expensive hotel restaurant for evening meals, but breakfast is generous and the rooms comfortable. A perfect location for nearby drives and walks.

We stayed here for one night only (wished it was atleast 3 nights) and this place is fantastic. It was so close to glacier still the room was warm. It's very new hotel and full of all modern facilities. Loved this place. Had a nice view of aurora too in the midnight :)

Spent 2 nights here on a recent trip around the island and it can definitely say it was the nicest hotel we stayed in while in Iceland. The hotel was very modern and minimalist and very well appointed. I remember the cost being pretty steep, but sometimes when you spend 10 days hiking and climbing - you deserve to splurge...

After travelling for a few days in iceland without sight of the northern lights, we rewarded with a short but spectacular display of northern light just before dinner time. In fact we almost forgotten about dinner we thought we made reservation for 8.30pm. After checking it we were getting ready for dinner when our guide told us to go outside...

We originally booked a standard room but when we got to the hotel the refrigerator and one of the lights was broken, so we were upgraded to a deluxe room with a glacier view. That room was awesome! Very modern, with heated floors outside the shower area and nice fixtures. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious, and the free breakfast...

This is a beautiful hotel in the middle of all that Iceland has to offer. The rooms are very modern and have an amazing view right out to the night's sky. The rooms were clean and comfy. We also enjoyed dinner at the hotel restaurant - delicious food and very friendly staff.
