Hotel Skaftafell, hotel in Skaftafell

The amazing location of Hotel Skaftafell provides guests with stunning views of Iceland's highest mountain, Hvannadalshnjukur and the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull.

Meals are very generous and the staff were happy to let us share a main course. It was more than enough for two. Walking to the start of the glacier was great. Very close to the start.

The Potato Storage, hotel in Skaftafell

The Potato Storage is offering accommodation in Svínafell, with free WiFi and free private parking. All guest rooms in the motel are fitted with a kettle.

Lovely owner who met us on arrival. The apartment was set in a beautiful location and was very convenient for visiting the Skaftafell area. The apartment was very tastefully designed and was spotlessly clean. The equipment provided was excellent and you could tell that a lot of thought had gone into it. We especially loved the peace and quiet. Would highly recommend a stay here.

    stunning, make sure you walk all the way down the trail, there are two other gorgeous waterfalls that a lot of people missed by not going all the way to end end of the trail (which is only a few hundred meters long).

    This is an amazing place to hike and see some glorious views...

    This is an amazing place to hike and see some glorious views - especially on a clear day - which can be a bit tricky. We were extremely fortunate to have some of the the sunniest days recorded. Could not ask for a more comfortable hike. There are glacier hikes that you can pay for but honestly parking at the Park and hiking up yourself is something you will not soon forget. Not too laborious, but you defintely feel like you are exercising. Loved every minute of this hike and I wish I could have stayed longer.

    Sadly we only had a day in Skaftafell and I wish we had more time to explore the national park. What we did see was stunning. Nature, hikes, glaciers and ocean all within a stones throw of each other. Well worth a longer visit than just to pass through.

    Though hotel Skaftafell is located in the middle of nowhere, its location is super-efficient for exploring the Skaftafell national park with all its glaciers. Jokulsarlon and Fjallsarlon glacial lagoons and horse-riding. The restaurant is a highlight (and pretty much the only option as there's virtually nothing nearby) - the food is quite inventive, well-cooked and flavoursome. The restaurant service is also warm, friendly and efficient.

    The proximity to the glacier…Just 10 minutes walk in the back of the hotel, it was better than the hikes we did in the park. The breakfast was good. Don’t know why previous reviewers complained about! It is. Little bit pricey but for the location it is worth it. I almost didn’t book here after seeing all the reviews . So glad we did! We will definitely stay there again.

    Great hotel in a perfect location on the south of the island. Restaurant evening meal and breakfast the following morning were both good quality and tasty. As others have said, there is a great walk out the back of the hotel straight to the glacier, which I would recommend to anyone visiting. All in all, a really positive experience, and we’d happily stay were again.

    the best hotel we want to in iceland! perfect location on the ring road in the middle of nowhere, but there’s a onsite restaurant and gas station. the surrounding nature is absolutely wonderful and there’s a nice walk to do behind the hotel, to a glacier lookout viewpoint! we saw northern lights there and the staff was helpful.

    The hotel is located right next to the glacier! You can take a short walk to look closer at it (but not to actually walk on it). Our double room was very spacious and clean. The staff at the hotel are helpful and friendly.

    Hotel was well located in the national park with a nice view of the mountains. The room was sufficient for a couple even though it is not very big. You can park near your room so large luggages are not an issue.

    It was a decent room, nothing special. The location was very helpful for our tour in Iceland. Right across the hotel was a gas station, where we bought some snacks and drinks. The beds were super comfy.
