“Very nice room, amazing scenery.”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Very nice if basic room with an amazing view of the adjacent mountains. We arrived after a day of driving from reykjavik. Dropped our stuff off and drove the 15 minutes to jokulsarlon. It's location cannot be faulted.

Tea and coffee was available from the machine in the common area.

Breakfast was basic as it is in most hotels but overall good.

We really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in the region for more than one night and Hali was the best choice. Nice, clean and spacious rooms and great atmosphere (and very good wifi). It has agood restaurant close to the road with local produce.

We overshot the hotel by about 10 km - very poorly signposted off route 1 and only found it because when we turned round and came at it from the opposite direction, I recognised the main building. Having said that, our room was warm, clean and well decorated. Bed was comfortable and the view of the mountain looming over the hotel was gorgeous. Tea and coffee facilities in lobby were excellent. The view from the front of our building out to see was stunning. The restaurant produced great food for evening meal, even if it is a little cramped. The on-site museum has obviously had a lot of time and energy spent on it and provided an interesting insight into Icelandic life in the early 20th century.

We arrived in this hotel after a whole day with very bad weather. Asked at the reception and they arranged for us a laundry during the night. We had to pay something, but at least we got dry clothes the day after.
Rooms are located in different buildings, where you have common areas, very nice, with tea and coffe machine and sofas. You also have a common kitchen at your disposal.
Room was clean and warm and the madrasses were fine. No problems.
The breakfast is served in the mani building, so you have to go out to reach it. Good breakfast with both salted /bread, cheese, vegetables...) and sweet food (some esquisite cakes).
Internet was a bit poor in the rooms.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel - the location is magnificent, staff are really lovely, rooms modern warm and super clean. The food was truly amazing - we had the Char and lamb, and it was fantastic. The owners and staff should be very proud of this place.

Nice big rooms in a brand new wing. There was also a large sitting room with coffee&tea facilities. The restaurant was a short walk away. There is also a cute nice little museum. The food was good and the staff very helpfull.

This place is a surprise out in the country. It's only about 10 minutes from the glacier lagoon, which is really close by Iceland standards.

The food at the restaurant was excellent, the room was really clean and nice. Everything seemed very new. The bathroom was by far the nicest of any place we stayed in Iceland!

Highly recommended!
