Located a 3 minute car ride from central Hofn village, Hafnarnes is a guest house, or more known in Iceland as farm, We stopped here for an overnight stay, no frills but does it job. Owner was very helpful and suggested us some places we can visit nearby. Rooms were basic but clean, and a common area that include a...

This guesthouse is outside Hofn, so you need a car to get there, but it's perfect for watching northern lights, as it is in the middle of nowhere and at night it gets quite dark. The room was simple but clean, the bed and pillows too soft, no tv (who cares) and wifi worked properly only in common areas, in...

By day you can view the Atlantic Ocean, four glaciers, a mountain range and their Icelandic Horses. By night, in the darkness of the countryside it's a great place to view the northern lights. We had 2 rooms for the five of us with comfy beds and a shared bathroom. There was common and a kitchen with a hot plate....

Just on the edge of glaciers and scenic wonders and minutes from Holn which has a good Netto supermarket and banks. Famous for its langostina which is a smallish lobster but we found very pricey. We are guesthouse types and $80 for this dish was not in our budget We stayed in the guesthouse which I imagine is why people...

As the title states "Don't let the outside fool you". Inside Hafarnes is a large kitchen/dining area and a comfortable lounge area. The excellent coffee machine in the morning was a plus. The hostess/owner was friendly and accommodating, allowing us to choose our room, as we were first to arrive and directing us to a local grocery store so we...

This guesthous is a few kilometres outside Höfn. The rooms are spacious and clean and have lovely views. Bathrooms are shared, but this is not a problem, they were also really clean. There is a nice common area with basic kitchen facilites, which are well cared for. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Much nicer to stay here for...

First impressions do matter and it is a really clean and comfortable place. Very quiet! There are lovely views from all the rooms, I think. It is a short drive into the town of Hofn. Yes, you share the bathroom, and kitchen facilities too (which are ample, clean and well equipped). N.B. Stairs are steep, but one or more rooms...

This is a very good hotel indeed with a very clean shared bathroom with a fantastic view! Nicely situated in Höfn it was a fantastic journey break as we went to see the glacier Vatnajokull. The WiFi if free and the management is very friendly. The shared kitchen is functional and works very well and the atmosphere is nice. The...

The room was comfortable and appeared clean. The bathroom was shared and was ok, but I would not use the shower. It was covered in mould. When you pull up to the building you are unsure if you are in the correct place because it looks the a junkyard. The view from our window was an old shed and a...
