The restaurant was a very good surprise, the salad and the chicken was great, the staff is extremely kid friendly and the owners were very nice people. In the lobby we saw very interesting loca pictures.

The place is nice but crowded. The lines are huge and the food is not the best. I think that for being a touristic place they need to make a better effort in providing food that is affordable and represent the local culture

We stayed at Little Geysir as the rest of the hotel was under renovation. The hotel itself was very modern and comfortable. The best hotel we stayed at outside Reykjavik. The breakfast was also amazing, and was the best breakfast we had. However, the service was the most outstanding, with Adrian being the biggest standout. Adrian who worked the night...

Having drove into the car park of the hotel, we looked at the buildings and assumed we must have made a mistake – they were like scout dorms from the outside. Apprehensively we went in and were surprised to find it was modern and airy inside. Our room was small, fairly basic and functional but clean and the shower was...

I stayed at the Litli Geysir part of the complex. The single room with bath was so cosy with everything needed for my 1 night stay. We arrived in darkness and the entrance was a bit difficult to locate in the dark. The stark elegance of the bath was in harmony with the vibe of this magical place. Dinner in...

Very trendy, modern, stylish! At least we didn't share our bathroom with others, like we did in previous hotels. Good two beds, excellent breakfast! Free wifi and parking. Everywhere in Iceland is expensive , so you have to be used to this. Enjoyed my stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The trademark of Iceland, the great Geysir, gave the hotel its name and Geysir is situated right outside the front door of the hotel. Haukadalur is one of Iceland's most famous historical sites, both ancient and today. The farmer's son from Haukadalur, Sigurdur Greipsson, founded a sports school in his father's inheritance at Haukadalur, which he operated with his wife Sigrun Bjarnadottir for a period of forty-three years. Today Hotel Geysir is run by descendant of Sigurdur Greipsson, Mar Sigurdsson (youngest son of Sigurdur and Sigrun) and his wife Sigridur Vilhjalmsdottur along with their children, Mabil Groa and Sigurdur.The Geysir-Center, which is directly opposite the geothermal area of Geysir and Strokkur, consists of a whole building complex with elegant restaurants, souvenir shop, outdoor and clothing store, snack shop, Geysir museum with multimedia show and camping area. Also there is a golf course, fishing, hiking trails, outdoor paradise the Haukadalur woods, Langjokull glacier tours and other activities such as highland tours. Therefore it is perfect for day trips because of many different possibilities of entertainment. Further details of activities in the region is available at the hotel's website hotelgeysir.Is. His landmark of Iceland is a spectacular natural phenomenon beyond description. The geothermal field surrounding the Great Geyser is the definitive geyser, having given its name to the geological phenomena. The Strokkur, another famous geyser located nearby, gives a performance every few minutes, shooting a tower of water and steam 30 meters into the air. There are other attractions apart from the magnificent geysers. For example, Blesi, a hot spring with water the colour of turquoise delights the senses. Walking about this natural wonder, one experiences the intensity of the forces of nature. Night time offers a fascinating view of the bubbling hot springs and the northern lights. A pot of boiling water takes on new dimensions.We place great pride in that all are equally pleased at the arrival and departure and your stay will be pleasant and memorable.Hotel RoomsThe hotel has twenty four double studio rooms in bungalows beside the river and twelve rooms in one wing, just two minutes from the thermal fields.All in all, this has to be the perfect framework for rest, relaxation, and getting charged up for the next activity. Access for disabled people is available both in hotel rooms, restaurants and toilets.The hotel has hot tub indoor with water from the geser, which are good to relax after a walk around the area. Iceland is an island capable of tempting visitors to a host of activities. One should however not forget that vacations are also for taking advantage of time by relaxing body and soul to the utmost. To reach this level of relaxation it is essential that the surroundings be conducive to this. ... more   less
