We have just come back from a road trip around Iceland. During our stay, there was a severe storm on the East coast, which meant we couldn't travel to the hostel we had booked. We had to book into Hof1 last minute. The room was pretty expensive for what it was, but this is Iceland afterall... The room was comfortable...

Hof 1 was very functional but nothing special. I felt like we were staying in a school camp! It was most probably the cheapest in the area so I couldn't really complain. The setting was really nice, and it was very convenient and near to Skaftafell info centre. Do your research before eating a meal here. We spent £90 for...

We needed a place close to Jökulsárlón (glacier bay in South Iceland) for our 8am Ice Cave tour. This place worked perfectly as far as location goes. The hotel itself seemed a little overpriced, but it was basically our only option for a three person room. We had a small three person room with a shared bathroom on the third...

Located seemingly in the middle of nowhere near the Vatnajökull National Park, Hof 1 Hotel offers pricey accommodations that suffice but don't particularly satisfy. The hotel's remote location meant that we could see the Northern Lights from the comfort of our well-heated rooms, and the hotel offered clean and comfortable rooms. The included breakfast spread was better than we expected,...

We stayed for 1 night en-route round Iceland with our baby son. The only real positives to the place were the location and the friendly staff. We arrived at 7pm and were glad to find that they could accommodate us for dinner, didn't mind a limited selection of food (asparagus soup followed by either lasagne, fish gratin or vegetable wrap,...

We are on a trip around Iceland and staying at many types of guest houses and hotels. The Hotel had a good sized triple room in the main building and had a number of shared bathroom facilities on our floor so this was not an issue. The dining area and lounge were if a good size and warm. The bedrooms...

As you approach this hotel, it looks lovely. The reception and dining areas are both well decorated and spacious. Unfortunately there aren't many more redeeming features. The rooms are cramped, and although having a sink in the room is useful, there were only two bathrooms on our floor and we did have to wait a few times. There were bugs...

I stayed at Hof 1 with my husband and another couple on a vacation and was extremely disappointed with the stay. It started with the front desk attendant being extremely rude. When having a convo with my husband about confirmation numbers, she kept interjecting and cutting us off. At dinner, they only have one dish option for all guests. The...

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The views are fantastic. The rooms are simple but nice. Breakfast was good. Improvements: Hot tub needs updating. A kettle in the room would have been good. The heater in the room needs updating as it was not warm enough. If I was passing through I would stay...

Hey Iceland put us up in this location so we didn't pick it and after reading a review in lonely planet we had high hopes. The location was great and close to the glaciers. The room was clean. The reception staff was ok. The hot tub didn't work. The sauna didn't work. The winter season dinner menu was only one...
