10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views of mountains and farm. Nice breakfast. Amazing beds. Very clean, modern, and comfortable. Would recommend and stay there again. Kaffi Hornid in town was the best restaurant I went to!
5.4 Okay
Pros: Very unusual to look at but there seems to be a pattern to these types of properties in Iceland. But really how good are the accommodations?
Cons: The PRICE! Very expensive for what is offered. The staff is excellent. Facilities were clean and comfortable. The location not convenient to the town. The construction of this property is such that walls very thin, so you hear everything. The doors are such that the only way they close is they slam. Very annoying. Breakfast was nothing special. Lighting in rooms, very annoying. Have to walk outside to get to breakfast, car etc. So if it’s raining, guess what? You’re soaked just getting to breakfast which is not worth it. Never would recommend this place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our favorite Guesthouse in Iceland, and we did the whole Ring Road and the Westfjords! Clean as can be, sweet staff, and delicious breakfast. Fantastic!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast and friendly staff.
Cons: Need more than 1 trash can and if you leave you window open to get air at night someone can reach in and unlock your door. Not very safe.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location just outside Höfn is great for a Ring Road tour. The building is new, pristine, well-maintained, and stylish. The guest room and bathroom was comfortable and contemporary. Breakfast was good, including fried eggs.
Cons: There isn't much privacy in the rooms near the parking lot (about half of the rooms), with the main walk to the office and breakfast/common room passing directly in front of them. Since the exterior guest room wall is made of glass (both door and windows), you have to keep the curtains fully closed to have any privacy, which reduces airflow from the window.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything was really fine, we had a good stay and staff is very friendly

Pros: We showed up on the later side and the owner was able to squeeze us in for dinner - it was huge and delicious - we had mushroom soup, delicious bread, lamb, fish, and ice cream for dessert. They also had bottles of wine for sale for dinner. A local sheep family wandered the property outside the dining room window.

7.1 Good
Pros: Nice breakfast (buffet)
Cons: Worst beds we had. Single bed that are supposed to stay together to give you a double (like often in Iceland) but won't because they weight like a feather and cheap... Ceiling was dirty, baseboards were all off from the wall and/or dirty... I did know that shower and toilets were shared but honestly for the price, you can get better...
6.5 Good

Pros: Stayed two nights. Breakfast was provided free of charge. Quite basic but perfectly adequate with very good quality food. An added bonus in an expensive country. Lovely guesthouse with modern and tasteful furnishings and fittings Excellent location with own parking spaces adjacent to harbour, restaurants, cafes, information office and museum. Only a short walk to Netto supermarket, a mini-shopping mall and bank. Great welcome from Sindri, our very friendly, helpful and generous host who was happy to chat at length. Coastal walks direct from the guesthouse. Relatively short drive (for Iceland) to three glacial lagoons. Our favourite guesthouse/hotel (out of five) during our stay in Iceland. Would certainly pay a return visit.

Cons: Unfriendly welcome by the host - we arrived after 10pm because we had a long drive but she clearly didn't like that. The guesthouse is really basic, with only one bathroom for all guests.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: When they are full, get there early if you want any.
Cons: No cooking after 9pm seemed unreasonably restrictive. We hadn't planned on added expense of eating out for dinner on our first night. Not the hosts fault, but another family got to it first and made sandwiches from all the cold cuts, leaving nothing for us for breakfast.

7.1 Good
Pros: the place was great for a night to crash. free room upgrade good breakfast
Cons: we arrived at breakfast 30 mins before the end of breakfast and the bacon wasn't topped up. when i asked the waitress if it was going to be they said no, which seemed strange as it hadn't closed yet. the room was ok but made us think what the room we booked must have been like as the upgrade wasn't very luxurious. We also know it is typical to have 2 single beds in iceland but a double sheet/bed cover would be a good addition.
7.1 Good
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable.
Cons: Front desk gentleman was not friendly during check-in process. I made reservation for dinner and as a solo diner, I was placed at a small table a few rows back from window even though there were small tables by window available the entire time I was eating. I felt I was not important to the staff. Hotel has no personality. Out of the nine accommodations I had in Iceland, this was my least favorite. They took my credit card for incidentals at check-in but at check-out they needed it again to charge my restaurant bill. Person at front desk said systems were not linked. Not sure why they needed it in the beginning.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel location is very quiet and wonderful. The view and you have a lunch is a little paradise. The dinner was so greattt, very tasty.

Pros: Good breakfast. Convenient location when travelling between Skaftafell and East Iceland (Borgarfjordur Eystri in our case). Easy check in and out. Nice views outside the hotel.
Cons: No Wifi in room. With many guests extremely tight parking despite secluded location. High room rate compared to other Fosshotels we stayed during our trip - definitely overpriced.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel, we got complimentary upgrade. The room is nice and comfortable. It has a back door to walk outside.The mountain and glacier view from the hotel is breathtaking. I had smoked sheep and langoustine for dinner , really enjoyed it. My boyfriend didn’t like his main course of ribeye, too tough to cut through . The waitress in the restaurant is not attentive, very cold, never had a smile on her face. The waiter was very nice. Breakfast was enjoyable. Overall I liked the stay . Hope they can improve their restaurant service.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The facility and staff were awesome! Chris and Michael treated us like royalty and the food was gteat too. Our stay was topped off with the Northern Lights from out own private balcony. We will highly recommend this stop to others as it will be a highlight of our Ring Road adventure for sure!

Pros: The view
Cons: The staff of restaurant is too snobbish
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel, very new and clean. Modern with s beautiful view.

6.7 Good
Pros: It is tidy and clean
Cons: The room was very small, the facilities in kitchen were old, e.g. it was very difficult to cut tomatoes by the knife, there were only 2 bathrooms in total... Can't understand why the guest house in Hofn is so expensive (more than 1600 nok) while the guest house I am living today at Egilsstaòir is much less than it(2/3 of that price), include separated bathroom. Anyway, as a guest house it is acceptable.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great location right on the harbour. Close to restaurants. Kitchen pretty good. Bathroom shared but didn't have trouble getting in.
Cons: Tiny room. We booked months ago so surely we would qualify for a larger room??
10.0 Excellent

Pros: comfortable beds

7.9 Good
Pros: Very convinyent
Cons: The price was very high Check in until 9 pm
5.4 Okay
Pros: It was very close to the water and a few good restaurants and had free parking
Cons: We didn’t realize we would be sharing a bathroom and shower, let alone with 4 other rooms of at least 2 people per room. Also I was told on arrival that I still needed to pay but I had received a payment confirmation via email when I paid in full upon booking. Also it said breakfast would be included but it wasn’t; there was just a shared kitchen for people to make their own things with their own food they bought themselves. Also the reception was confusing, you had to go upstairs but then there wasn’t anyone there so you had to call and it was inconvenient.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: very clean and cozy place
Cons: all was good
8.5 Excellent
Pros: -beds were comfortable -sink was inside our room (not available for all rooms) -breakfast was an option -there was a storm that entire day, and the owner advised us to stay inside the place without further charges. -as long as you expect a college dorm room-like facility, you'll be pleased with it. Clean, warm, and simple. -easy to find (for travelers who do not have a GPS)
Cons: -we woke up in the middle of the night because the storm blew several plastic chairs against our walls and windows until they shattered into pieces. -owner is slightly difficult to get in touch with (even while inside the guesthouse). He lives upstairs. -breakfast was supposedly at 730 downstairs, but the room did not open until 8 and everyone in the building was wondering who to ask and where to go for 30 minutes.

5.0 Okay

4.5 Okay
Pros: Location, free breakfast

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything - Don't be put off when you arrive outside this guesthouse, it's lovely. Great little hotel, small but perfectly formed rooms, great bathroom facilities, obviously recently modernised. Breakfast was good too. Stairs are a little tricky (narrow) but okay. But it's right by all the lovely restaurants and harbour.
Cons: Would have liked a couple more electric sockets in the bedroom, for the hairdryer nearer a mirror for example.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I can not speak in general. We were hosted in the ground floor, room number 6. Very small, not very clean, without any wardrobe to put the suitcases and your clothes. The blind of the window didn't cover the whole window and the light entered into the room. Very very expensive for the low comfort they offer. And there is nobody living there. The proprietor runs a restaurant near the guesthouse, and when you arrive you have to ring the bell and wait, five minutes or more, until they come. Moreover, breakfast wasn't so good. There were two rooms in front of the dining room. A place very impersonal.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean
7.5 Good
Pros: We had the entire establishment to ourselves, so plenty of room to spread out and relax. There are 8 rooms in total, and it would have been a bit uncomfortable with 14 other people in the shared spaces!!!
Cons: Powerpoints were in odd places and not many of them. Beds were quite separate, so when I went in for a cuddle I nearly fell through the gap between them!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really enjoyed welcome from host Hrefna Ósk, who offered a bit of history about the island and made recommendations for restaurants and sights to see. Apartment quite comfortable for family of five, and a terrific value. Visited early August 2019. Easy parking for rental car arriving on ferry from Landeyjahöfn; about 3-minute drive from boat dock. Within walking distance of shops and restaurants. No complaints!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Like the key code idea with no physical key. Just walk in and you have your room with no waiting. Breakfast was fine.
Cons: The shower in the bathroom could use a curb to keep the water from flooding in to the rest of the bathroom.
5.0 Okay
Cons: Building looked like a warehouse, room very basic, extremely poor value for money. Noisy from adjacent room and road. More like a warehouse than a guest house. Avoid.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: Self check-in very easy and convenient! No key principle with code to unlock the door worked great! Decent breakfast with good espresso included in price. Our room had water-heater, so we could enoy the coffee and tea after a long day in a privacy of our room in yhe evening. Wi-Fi worked very well, which was great because mobile data transfer was really poor in Hofn.
Cons: One could hear noise and see light from the hallway since there was a big gap in the front door... but fortunately there was not a lot of noise
3.3 Mediocre
Cons: The beds were very uncomfortable especially the 3 rd bed
6.3 Good
Cons: The sofabed for an adult was very unconfortable
6.3 Good
Pros: The room was clean, with nice bedsheets and its own bathroom with all you need. The breakfast was good, I noticed the lady there doing a good job overseeing that nothing’s missing.
Cons: The floor in the room is made out of black little pebbles, beautiful but cold and unpleasant under your feet, especially if you took long hikes during the day. We got a twin room and the beds had uncomfortable spring mattresses, we woke up with back pain in the morning. The tv only showed one program, for children.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Our most reasonably-priced stay while in Iceland. Accommodations are basic but comfortable. Breakfast was decent but located in a separate building across the street. The faculties do have a repurposed feel to them.
Cons: Floor covering is sort of a fake-rock surface. Was a bit uncomfortable barefoot but nothing that caused us to want a refund.
7.5 Good
Pros: Modern, clean and comfortable.
7.5 Good
Pros: It was clean and convenient for a short stay
Cons: Next to the gaz station with not much around

Located in Hofn, Hotel Höfn is next to a golf course, within a 5-minute walk of Vatnajokull and Hofn Glacier Museum. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
6.3 Good
Pros: The main building was very nice and the woman at the check in desk was excellent.
Cons: Unfortunately, our room was located In a building across the parking lot. The room was extremely small for the price with little space for our luggage and no storage.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff went the extra mile to meet my request for a room with s bathtub. Much appreciated!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: All the staff members we encountered were very friendly and helpful. They even added us to the list of wake-up call in the event the Northern Lights appeared that evening. The included breakfast had a good variety of items and was of high quality. The views from the water-facing deck were very nice.
Cons: The shower stall was a little cramped, but typical of many European hotels.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Located near the center of Höfn.
Cons: First impression was a very bad smell in the room coming from the drain. Not a single case, read the other reviews. Water in the basin didn't drain because of hairs under the stopper. Main light in the room didn't work. Because of these three issues we wanted to talk to the management to ask for a partial refund. A personal meeting with the manager was promised for the next day in the morning, but when we were leaving the manager was surprisingly in a meeting. Really? We don't think so. So we agreed to leave our email adress and were promised to get an answer to our request, but never heard from them again. This is highly unprofessional and not in any way customer orientated. There can be problems with the room but ignoring the concers of your customers and avoiding a talk is unacceptable. We visited Iceland in the last 9 years for 13 times - this was by far our worst experience.
8.8 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Terrific breakfast buffet
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Hotel was located next to the sea with a friendly and helpful English speaking staff. There was a great breakfast buffet spread, with local herring and cheese/bread. Accommodation was basic but that's all you need when passing through Hofn.
Cons: Hotel food was pricey
6.3 Good
Pros: The common areas were fine and the hotel overall design feels like a pleasant flashback to the 1960s (when it was founded). Staff was rather friendly and welcoming overall.
Cons: The room in itself was a bit gloomy though decent, and the bathroom just stank (clearly, ventilation is an issue in the bathroom).
4.8 Okay
Cons: Poor amenities and over priced
8.8 Excellent
Pros: very nice breakfast!
Cons: the room was rather small and the hotel has no elevator, which meant going up 2 floors on stairs.
