The best Thing about this Hotel was the possibilty to use the hot tub which was great, The room was okay, very small and underneath the Roof so Standing up was a bit hard at some Corners. Breakfast was great so much to choose from and free coffee/tea all day. Definetlely worth staying there

This is a perfect place to lay your head. Old European charm and close to the city. The employees were very helpful and provided rainy day activities. The breakfast is pretty good too. The views of the mountains and the water are amazing. Overall, a wonderful and relaxing place

We spent 2 weeks in Iceland -and, by far, Hotel Rjukandi was the worst place we stayed. The room was downright depressing: 2 narrow twin beds with soft mattresses and paper thin walls where you can hear every sneeze from the neighboring room....and people walking by and looking in the window on their way to their rooms. Glad it was...

We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very nice. Close to the Settlement Center and the town of Borganes. Beer tasting nearby. A win-win. This is a great location for traveling the ring road or the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

We LOVED the location, our room, the view, the breakfast, the staff, the hot tub.... once we finally found the hotel! They took an old restaurant sign, turned it over and painted Hafnarfjall on the back. When this sign is lit up from the inside at night time, you could not read the sign! Hafnarfjall, please remedy this!

Our room was simple, quiet and clean, with views of the bay. It was good for our one-night stay as we traveled from the Golden Circle sights, onward to the Peninsula. We could easily drive to Borgarnes for dinner. The free breakfast had plenty of good options and the staff was helpful. While it seems like an older hotel, the...

We stayed one night in this guesthouse. It was just by the Ring Road. The setting was like a motel where you can park your car in front of your room. The rooms are clean and basic. In the lobby, you can find the only TV for all the guests. The dinning room is also in the lobby area. They...

Unused to Icelandic accomodation, we were a bit surprised by this hotel but found that we were treated well by management - given a large top floor room for the three of us. Views were good from the balcony, but inside was a bit haphazard. They must be renovating the hotel room-by-room as vacancies allow. Our conclusion was: "at least...

This was a reasonably priced worn and dated motel. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet so it was acceptable for one night. The breakfast was better than expected but below the other breakfasts on our trip.

This hotel is just outside of Borgarnes, right after the causeway crosses the river, so easy to find. We opted for a room with private bath, but there are rooms with shared facilities as well. Although our room faced the mountains and road, we didn't hear any road noise, just the occasional crunch of tires on gravel as guests arrived...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated close to the bridge crossing Borgarfjordur bay, across the water from the town of Borgarnes Hotel Bru provides the simple comforts of home in a cozy atmosphere, a place you can sit and chat as the sun turns the bay first golden, then fiery red. Just a few hundred meters from the main road, Hotel Bru has a homey feel to it, whilst providing the facilities expected in a hotel. ... more   less
