This is a small hotel with a reception on a table in the breakfast room. Front there the host will do everything (and more) to make your stay fantastic! He took us on a free ride around the island and told us of how he as a 15 years old boy experienced the volcano break out in 1973 when the...

This is a very good no nonsense hotel. It is very good value for the money. The breakfast is splendid. I have stayed there á couple of times and have had very good rooms with great view. Very central in the City. Close to the fabolous Gott cafe.

We had planned to visit Hotel Eyjar and the Vestmannaeyjar on our trip to Iceland. Unfortunately, there were very high winds and the ferry was canceled - which we did not realize until we were pulling up to the ferry terminal in the evening at 6:45 pm. I called the hotel and the owner very kindly canceled our booking and...

I cannot thank the owners enough for their hospitality. Rarely have I met people who truly seem to enjoy helping others as much as these. We enjoyed insightful conversations over a delicious breakfast, a very comfortable room and local wisdom that made our trip to Vestmannaeyjar very special and one we will remember and recommend very highly. I can't wait...

We were met on the corner by the owner as we were having trouble finding the hotel. Awesome room! FABULOUS breakfast! Opened the gate to the lighthouse so we could drive up onto the property and watch the Northern Lights. Super friendly host. THANKS! K

Loved this hotel! The owners was very nice and helpful. He took great care of us and we will stay there again if ever we can. Lovely room. The breakfast was fantastic, with freshly cooked over easy eggs, yogurts, meats, cheese and fruit.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Eyjar for these reasons: - It doesn't look like much from the outside, but our room was very nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean, and it came with many amenities that we didn't find in other hotels across Iceland (mini-fridge, kettle, dresser, etc.). Plus, the...

Vestmannaeyjar is a very small island - reading Tripadvisor, one will see only a handful of them. The Hotel Eyjar isn't the easiest to find because it doesn't have signage other than what's taped to the front door but don't let that stop you from staying. We checked in late because we took the 7:45 ferry from Landeyjahofn and the...

Even though the town is small Hotel Eyjar is not easy to locate. It is in the heart of downtown but recently surrendered its street level Lobby/Reception area to the Tourist Information Bureau. This is a multi-story hotel with no lobby n no elevator. Our host treated us very well n did his best to take care of us. We...

Hands down the best value + quality stay I had in a recent 7 night trip to Iceland. The hotel is very well built and the amenities are all top-notch, along with design. Art throughout the hotel is from locals who look to communicate the ethos of the island and surroundings through their work, resulting in authentic, phenomenal aesthetics to...

“We stayed on the 4th floor- one room had a king (2 twins pushed together- typical in Europe) and the other had a king and a twin- perfect for our family! No elevator though- but it was worth it to be alone up there!”
