Score from 9 reviews Excellent
the breakfast is amazing, the room was really nice, good restaurant advices
The location and staff were excellent. The breakfast was hearty and the room was quiet.
The only minor detractor was the shared bathroom was a little cramped. Though they had two sinks, one was blocked by the staff washer / dryer.
Breakfast was brilliant Staff were very kind and friendly Fab location Plenty of showers
Virtually paper thin walls therefore hard to sleep Small rooms
Wi-Fi and location is very good Staff is very kind
Staff was friendly, breakfast good, the rooms clean - we enjoyed our stay.
Höfn is not the best location for younger travellers. There are also way too few restaurants and no bars. We really had problems in finding a free table and once ended up having dinner at the petrol station.
Off the beaten-path a little, friendly and welcoming staff
No w-fi, loud, kitchen not clean, flies in the shower stalls
Location Breakfast Staff
Small rooms Only one shower for five rooms Expensive
The staff was polite and we got the room already at 12 o'clock in the morning.
The beds were not comfy.
When it was time to check in we went to the guesthouse and called the owner. He came down to the guesthouse in 2 min. We got a room on the 2nd floor, which was with a nice view. Breakfast is included and it was really good! Many restaurants close to the guesthouse. Free wifi is included as well, which is always appreciated. Staff was really nice and helped out a lot.
We shared one bathroom with 3 other rooms, which could be a bit much sometimes. Especially because the room next to ours had 4 family members. Thankfully there were two more bathrooms on the 1st floor. The guesthouse has no kitchen facilities. We felt that it wasn’t enough ac outlets in the rooms and had to share. Way too expensive though! 140 euro for a tiny room with shared bathroom.
Very clean, nice decor, friendly host, our room comfortably slept two adults and two children, the breakfast that was included was lovely.
Icelandic prices... even with all the upsides, nearly $300 Canadian per night is a bit of a shock.
Clean Friendly greeting Tasty and hearty breakfast Parking right outside
Small room Basic furnishings Shared facilities Price (but in line with Iceland generally)
It's a nice and clean guesthouse, close to local restaurants, with tasty breakfast and a very friendly host.
Bathrooms and showers are shared - it's not a problem for single travelers or couples that are traveling on a budget, but for us as a family with kids it was a bit of a mismatch.
The room is pretty clean and I do love the breakfast. When I was going to leave，the manager gave me a gift made by himself，which extremely made me moving！Thanks for all the things！
When I was sleeping，I had been woken up several times due to the noise made by the upstairs.
Good bed, nice breakfast.
House is a bit noisy. Hardly any hooks to put jackets or towel. Rather pricy
The warm welcome from the owner, including tea/coffee on arrival. The very excellent breakfast including Icelandic waffles and skyr. The room was roomy, beds comfortable, great location on the harbor near restaurants. An attractive place to stay. Good recommendations from the Host. Nice area to walk around great views into the fjord.
It was very expensive compared to other Guesthouses we used in Iceland, but that may be the area. The two restaurants were rather pricey too, but the quality was excellent.
The breakfast with tasty waffels and a good choice of products
One real bathroom shared among 8 bedrooms. Queue in the morning in front of the bathroom, preventing to respect any possible scheduling. The other showers and toilette (1) located in a sort of laundry room, similar to a gym center. The furniture in the room extremely basic, no wardrobe, only some hooks and just a TV trolley (without TV) to put personal stuff. The most disapponting lodgement in the tour.
It lacks kitchen
Warm comfortable friendly staff
Small room; restroom, shower is more hotel like than for a guesthouse
Breakfast / but according to our other hotels/b&b' s it was average
The reception is open from 5-7 pm meaning that you cannot check in before 5 !!!!!!!! the bedroom had no view and was located next to the breakfastroom (noise)/ the bathtowels were not changed the second day and the beds were "sleepable" but that is about it.The second day there was no soap in the bathroom anymore. No view whatso ever!!!!! Maybe we should not expect that much of a guesthouse (although this one was a negative exeption during our whole trip) but with a price of € 170 per night !!!! one expect more.
The 4 bedded room that we stayed in (2 beds and a bunk bed) was fine, but was located next to the bathroom and near the kitchen. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Very basic. Breakfast was good.
A group of 4 women also staying in the guesthouse were talking (loudly) in the common area and doing their laundry (located next to our room) past midnight, preventing many from sleeping. We realize that this was the fault of rude inconsiderate guests and not the owner, but it impacted our stay. What the owners can improve is the following. The shared bathroom was completely flooded after some guests took showers, primarily because the shower floor leaked, and the shower curtain was insufficient. We had to put our hiking boots on to use the bathroom during the night. There was no soap anywhere in the guesthouse: an empty soap dispenser for hand soap by the bathroom sink, same in the shower, and no soap at the tea station/kitchen sink, where many guests rinsed their cups and placed them back on the shelf. The house itself needs maintenance, such as repair of cabinets partially falling off hinges, keyholes which need replacement, and shower repair to prevent leakage. Although the owner was friendly, he would not make a local call for us to a book a glacier tour. Rather, he suggested that we book through the information office down the street, where we were charged a 10% booking fee.
Comfortable rooms, close to food, stores and the bay.
You do have shared bathrooms.
The staff was very kind, he gave us restaurant tips etc. Rooms and shared facilities were in good conditions. Also the breakfast was nice.
Host was friendly and helped us find restaurants Location is center of Hofn
Expensive (poor value for money) Room smelled bad Noisy (thin walls) To little bathrooms/restrooms for number of guests
Friendly & informative staff, location right next to a great lobster restaurant, very close to scenic walking paths. Höfn is a nice town. Room small but comfortable.
We had a bit of trouble finding it, as it was tucked away from the street. Our room entrance was directly off the dining room, so there was potential for it being too noisy, but it didn't work out badly for us.
