I accidentally booked the wrong weekend for my Icelandair stopover deal (highly recommended btw, I use it every time my evil boss sends me to the US!), and didn't want to stay in Reykjavik as it was full of Iceland Airwaves- tourists. So I needed something close by Keflavik but not in downtown Reykjavik; Viking Village was the perfect location.
Greeted by the very helpful (and very cute) receptionist/waiter the check in and late dinner in the next door restaurant went all smoothly. The restaurant food was ok, but if you're a Viking enthusiastic don't expect anything too authentic.
Room was clean, decent sized and the bed wasn't bad at all (somebody was complaining here it was too hard but on an Icelandic scale it was super soft!). Breakfast was better than average, especially the seafood salad sort-of-a-thing was awesome! Sauna was pretty cold for a Finn but should be warm enough for any other nationality...
Hafnarfjordur is a cute little village (well actually it's the 3rd biggest city in Iceland but feels small nonetheless), where you have everything you need and it's conveniently located only a quick and easy bus ride away from both Keflavik and Reykjavik. So if you're not driving for whatever reason (although in Iceland you should) or are just looking for something quiet and away from the city but with all the conveniences, go to Viking Village Hotel.More
