Our surroundings

The community is moulded by Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, and it’s creeping icefalls. The spectacular natural scenery is absolutely unique and surely it’s enough to point out locations such as Skaftafell, Jökulsárlón, Skálafellsjökull, Geitafell and Lónsöræfi, which are located within short driving distances from Hotel Jökull.

The nearest town is Höfn in Hornafjörður. It is the hometown of the Icelandic langoustine and has a great variety of locally produced food that can be ordered of menus at  restaurants in the region. In addition to the variety in local food, the clean and unspoiled nature is a hallmark of the Vatnajökull Region.

Very nice stay

We stayed a night in a room looking out over a field. The view was great but was really nice early in the morning where we could see the mountains and glaciers in the background. The breakfast was very nice with a lot of nice options to start the day.

Great breakfast - comfortable room

Check I was quick and easy. Peter was very friendly. We stayed in the block with 400 numbers. The room was a good size. 2 single beds pushed together. Nice size TV with English channels. The towels could be more plush. Breakfast – good range of cereals with accompaniments scrambled eggs, bacon a choice of breads, cold cuts. A good variety of teas. 

Love it!

An outstanding hotel in Iceland! It’s new, spacious, clean and comfort. Everything was great for our stay, including the dinner and breakfast. Gas station is right across the street! We saw aurora right outside the hotel. Love it!

Hidden gem!

Very spacious room with a very nice breakfast. About six minutes outside Höfn. We arrived in KEFLAVIK and went straight to the hotel in about 6 hours only stopping for lunch. Good starting point for journey to Reykjavík and stopping at all Kodak moments.

Great stay!

Wonderfully clean and efficient hotel- comfortable beds – got a great nights sleep! Morning buffet was plentiful and good. Staff suggested a restaurant in Hofn for dinner which was truly delightful and delicious. I would totally stay here again!

Top hotel

Love the fish buffet and service. Friendly staff. Location is a little remote but just on road 1 around Iceland. Breakfast is good. View to the glacier is likely on clear nights. Nice and clean rooms. Perfect hotel in my mind.
