Is one of the easternmost settlements of Iceland and Hotel Bjarg is a small but beautiful little Hotel in the Eastern fjords of Iceland. Hotel Bjarg is the ideal choice for your accommodation in Eastern Iceland and luxury at a reasonable price is offered by the hotel. The Hotel is built over running water which seems to have a tranquility effect on those who sleep here. The hotel is constructed with concrete and there is double glass in all the windows to quiet any unwanted exterior noise. Aluminum sheets cover all the outside walls and there is thick insulation within the walls to ward off the cold winter months or a cool summer night. There is central heating through the hotel and also extra heaters are located inside of all rooms if needed. The excellent construction of the facility insures that your stay at the hotel will be warm and safe within this mini fortress. The hotel offers free internet connections to the guests and there is no extra charge for the ocean front view from the bedrooms. There is a big wooden deck out of the banquet room that smokers like to use because there is no smoking allowed inside of the hotel. There is also a large gas grill out there and fish/meat can be barbequed if the weather is good.. The current owner has totally rebuilt the interior and has been operating the hotel for the last 5 years. Hotel Bjarg is one of the few Eastern Coast hotels that are operating on a full year basis to travelers and we are glad to provide you with excellent service that we have learned through the years!

We had an accident in Iceland and had to cancel our booking. Unfortunately the staff had ZERO empathy and understanding for our horrible situation and charge us for the 2 nights. In such a situation I would expect more understanding. I wouldn't trust them to book there an

Sorry Artur Olesch of Germany but this was a guaranteed booking made by you and as per policy the Hotel Bjarg is not able to return your funds or cancel reservation as requested with such short notice. You wanted to cancel one day before arrival and that would mean a loss of revenue for Hotel Bjarg and I could then have sold it to other travelers. Most CC companies offers payments of funds lost for special occasions to its clients and maybe you should check that(insurance)? Travelers have often changed their minds about their need for a bedroom that they booked and many have then decided to show up for their bookings if they are not able to cancel them. When I make a contract with my clients I am promising them a Guaranteed Bedroom and then they must also follow/agree to Hotel Bjarg policies when I state them on the contract done between us? Maybe you should look up what exactly a Guaranteed Booking means? Best Regards, Hotel Bjarg

Already when entering this hotel you can tell that a lot of thought has been put into the decorations of the reception. The rooms have boutique character and a great view onto the fjord. The owner is very welcoming and gave us not just a very good breakfast, but also much

We booked this hotel through a travel agent and when we arrived the owner didn't have the reservation. He had to search for it and finally found it. Not sure if we got the rate we were supposed to get. He offered us either two beds or one and we chose two. He gave us us a family

What a lovely hotel ! We couldn't find anywhere to stay and thankfully came across a vacancy at this hotel. We arrived very late in the evening after 8 hours of driving, and found the owner there to greet us with a friendly smile. We found ourselves in an adequate sized room
