Convenient, but not my favorite
The hotel was convenient and affordable for the area in Vík, however it was not my favorite place to stay compared to other hotels during my trip. Breakfast was not included with the rate, the sauna was not working, and the room felt a bit dingy. I would stay here again for the convenience and location, but would hope to get a nicer, newer room next time.

Room was a bit stuffy but as soon as we cracked open a window it was fine. The included breakfast was a nice bonus since hotel was in a remote area and so much easier to wake up and know that there's a meal waiting for you.

Good place to catch Northern Lights / Comfortable
This is a very small "town", i don't really know what to call it. There's only one restaurant which is also a Museum. But, you're not really there to visit the "town". It's a good stopover if the Jokusarlon Glacier is as far as you intend to go and not head on towards Hofn. Very Very short drive from the glacier lagoon which means you can drive there at night to wait for the Northern Lights. The Hotel is also good for the Northern Lights. It is generally very dark there with no neighbouring lights, providing the perfect conditions to see the show. And thank fully we managed to catch the lights display over the hills just behind the hotel. The hotel faces the ocean so you have the best of both worlds. Just remember to check in at the Restaurant/Museum, we missed that so we were wondering why there was nobody in the hotel. overall i would recommend it, everything was great, food was nice too, just expensive but in Iceland, everything is.
