Lilja Guesthouse, Hofn
Modern rooms with a great view
room was in perfect conditions and you wake up to the view of the glacier thanks to the big glass windows (amazing btw), comfortable bed, friendly staff and the breakfast is included (if you're road tripping around Iceland you know how valuable this is), location is perfect if you're traveling on the ring road, you can't miss it. the only down side was slow wifi. We didn't see northern lights that night but on a clear night with high solar activity this place should give you an incredible point of view because of low light pollution and open area. We would stay here again, one of the nicest rooms we had (12 day road trip on ring road)

Need better description of finding location. We missed it after dark and without GPS it was difficult to find.

Not quite as pictured
I was a little disappointed to arrive at this hotel and find I was not staying in the building that was pictured on It appeared to be a gorgeous modern black building. That building existed, but was not where I was put for the night. There is a second building attached to the restaurant that is nothing like I had expected at all. The views from this building were also really not very good at all, I had to ask to be moved to another room so I wouldn't be facing farm equipment. The staff WAS really friendly and helpful, which I appreciated. Overall though, I was looking for a retreat experience, and I drove for quite some time to get there, and to stay in the beautiful hotel pictured. That's not quite what I got.
