Its a little bit out of town so enjoy the walk to the harbour. As with other hotels there was no lift so we had to lug luggage up and down stairs. The restaurant was okay. I had the Lobster (Langoustines) as they are supposed to be the speciality of the area. Must admit I had better at other hotels... More

The breakfast is good value and cater for most Western taste. The hotel has a restaurant and reasonable prices. Hofn is a small town but they have some good... More

Hotel is nicely positioned within easy reach of the town. The restaurant is large and we walked the length of its emptiness to get to our table. But the table was at the window and the service at dinner was lovely; friendly and amusing.

A 2 night stay in this harbour town at Hotel Hofen. A functional hotel with basic but comfortable rooms. Good service for the desk staff who were very helpful in helping us to get our puncture repaired. The restaurant served good fresh Icelandic food but the service was a little wanting at times. No separate bar or lounge area so... More

What an amazing place nestled into the countryside of Vesturbraut. We were a bit apprehensive because of the long gravel roads to the Inn, but once we arrived, it became a magical experience. The family run hotel is clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The food was delicious, and the family staff very accommodating. Although we were only there for one night,... More

We had brutal weather the day we stayed here, so Hotel Hofn was a lifesaver! Very nice hotel, very comfortable, definitely business class. The food was great. Overall, it was very expensive compared to the cottages were were staying at before and after, but for one night it was a welcome back to civilization! One thing to note- there are... More

It's among the better hotels on the south coast, with small but modern rooms and a very good restaurant. Breakfast is a typical Icelandic buffet, dinner is a la carte; for a splurge, try the icelandic lobsters. Hotel is right on the coast and close to the walking trail. You can also walk to the supermarket in about 10 minutes.... More
