Solid hotel accommodations with personal service
We used this hotel as a convenient place to stay after a long day of sightseeing activities that would not be too far from the next day's activities. So we were not expecting greatness - only to be surprised by the personal quality of service in terms of politeness, flexibility, and willingness to help us. We were able to get upgrades, have the breakfast hour moved up by an entire hour, and get help with our bags. It is somewhat remote but the restaurant was very good and it appeared that many locals went there to eat. Rooms were clean but small. Bedrooms were in a loft where one had to climb up a narrow staircase to get to the bed. It was a bit inconvenient to have to negotiate one's way down to the bathroom on the first floor during the night but doable. There was ample parking and everything worked. I'd recommend the hotel.

Gorgeous Views at Charming Hotel
What a charming hotel! Lots of quirky decorations throughout the hotel and in rooms. The staff were absolutely lovely- happy to help with any and all questions. We had a loft room, which was small but more than sufficient, with a breathtaking view of the fjord. We made use of the two hot-spring fed hot tubs available to guests as well. Sitting and looking out over the mountains at sunset was a magical experience. Breakfast was generous and good! P.S. If you drive to the hotel from Reykjavik, avoid a $10 toll by driving around the peninsula, rather than through the tunnel. It's an extra ~20min, and though the roads are winding the views are stunning.

Decor looks like it is from my grandmas house. Dining room was empty for dinner. Waitress was really nice. Lighting in the room was horrible. You were unable to read in bed. Light switches in the room didn’t turn lights on. Towels were old. Just a really strange place. Not impressed

Hotel Glymur, Saurbaer
AWFUL. The room (and hotel) are extremely dated so there was little comfort. Hotel was "managed" by a 25 year old and teenagers so needless to say service was terrible. To top it off the water smelled like sulfur so you get to take a rotten egg shower. I wouldn't give this review but for the price. At this expensive price point, the hotel and service are completely unacceptable. On a positive note, the view and food were good.

Lovely stay
Hotel Glymur is an absolutely wonderful hotel in stunning scenery. With giant windows you can watch the sun rise and set over the water and mountains. The surrounding area is gorgeous and not far from reykjavik. The hotel itself is beautiful and charming, has a wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms and overall comfort that can't be beat at this price.
