Reviewed 28 October 2012

Very nice hotel with a good staff. Our room was very nice and clean. We sleep here at our arrival and also one day before our departure. The Hotel is located in a good place, only 10 minutes from the airport and in front of a nice harbour. We suggest it for the cleanliness and the helpfulness of the owner.

Room Tip: Nice suite in front of the harbour.

Deserves all the high review ratings it gets. It is so close to the airport - and yet in a lovely sea view area (you may not see the sea from your room though). Rooms are excellent. Breakfast is pretty basic but includes make it yourself waffles - which is always fun!

Room Tip: If you want a sea view - you may need to phone and ask them - you do get great sunsets!

I'd read the Trip Advisor reviews and they were all so positive and Hotel Berg was true to it's reputation and didn't let me down. I arrived on 6 September, to a lovely new boutique hotel/B&B very close to the airport. It was fantastic to be picked up at 11pm, taken to a lovely hotel and not be disappointed by anything after the ridiculously long flights from Australia.

I was happy with the lovely and comfortable surroundings when I went to bed - lovely bedding, towels, great bathroom etc (proper hair dryer - hurrah!). Waking up and being greeted by lovely staff - and a great breakfast - which capped off a great stay. Fruits, waffles, cereals, teas, coffees, savoury things like meats, fish, cheese etc.. Then we went outside for a quick explore whilst waiting for our friends to collect us - a gorgeous sunny day made the surroundings even prettier. We enjoyed our stay so much, that when we got to Reykjavik on our last night & couldn't stay in the hostel we wanted to, we called Hotel Berg and came back again. This time there were 4 of us. We enjoyed the lounge area, having a few drinks, listening to music, playing guitar, enjoying the fireplace and agreeing that we all had a most fabulous time in Iceland. The breakfast starts extra early for those on the 9am flights with car hires to sort out before hand. Perfect start and end to my Icelandic holiday.

Charming new place, by a lovely little harbour. We stayed there for one night only, at the very end of our trip to Iceland. Not cheap but the suite we had booked was nicely decorated and spacious (on two levels). Very friendly and helpful staff. Only a 10 minutes’ walk to the main street in Keflavik (restaurants, groceries, boutiques, etc.). Free transfer to the airport (5 minutes) and bonus (!) you can also get a DVD player in your room to watch movies (selection is not bad). We felt right at home!

We stayed at Berg hotel the day before we were due to leave Iceland. It is perfectly located if you need to be near the airport for early or late departure/arrival, but it is also in a beautiful location if you want to explore this quiet harbour town.

Bedrooms were nice and warm, with comfortable mattresses and pillows and spic and span bathroom. Free wi-fi, complimentary tea/coffee/hot chocolate in the lounge area. Full of character with quirky, yet tasteful decorations.

Great value for money and the friendliest staff (including their welcoming dogs). Excellent selection for breakfast (including Sakir, Icelandic yogurt). Berg is in a beautiful spot by the harbour, we were staying in a room with a view of the little yachts.

The children loved visiting the old shack where the giant troll who looks after the harbour lives, but we were a little bit scared when we heard the giant's footsteps so we ran off quickly and went for dinner at the bistro on the other side of the harbour - splendid!

Room Tip: Don't miss the Blue Lagoon if you have a chance

I would categorise the Hotel Berg as a 'Boutique' Hotel. The rooms are large, contemporary, yet with a comfy homely feel. The owner and his wife are outstanding hosts and go beyond the normal hotel pleasantries. For example my wife and I were driven to Reykjavik by the owner at 5 minutes’ notice to rectify a balls up by a tour company who hadn't booked our tour despite taking payment and me having confirmation emails. A star rating doesn't exist for this level of service!

The food was plentiful and honest, they have skilfully and professionally built a most pleasing help yourself process at the kitchen area, built on his patron’s honesty.

The view over the harbour is outstanding, and it is a very short walk to town to restaurants, cafes and other shops.

This gets great thumbs up from me and I would with great enthusiasm recommend this Hotel and it's owners to anyone who wants great quality, value for money and great service.

Room Tip: No tips, I only stayed in one room. It did seem all rooms shared a harbour view though

Pure luck! ..as we happened upon an article on Htl Berg in a travel mag in our Reykjavik hotel room, so we quickly swopped our last night in Iceland to Hotel Berg, primarily because it sounded so good and it was only 5 mins from the airport, instead of 45 mins from the htl in Reykjavik! We'd spent a week travelling around sw iceland, stayed in a number of hotels, mostly only ok, nothing special, and then we find Hotel Berg!! ... I don't know where to start describing the perfection....a wonderful welcome from the owner, fantastic location, beautifully designed, rooms new and spotlessly clean and comfortable. In the dining, foyer and lounge areas there are coffee and refreshments 24hrs , including capuccinos, (all self-service), and an 'honesty' bar. Breakfast is from 4am , to accomodate early departures, with an array of food choices all fresh and inviting. The relaxed quiet atmosphere that pervades once you enter this hotel is blissful, it turned out to be the best of our Iceland travels. The owner also , when we arrived offered to do an online flight check-in for us for our flight early the next morning so we didn't have to rush, he printed our boarding passes and all we had to do was make our way to baggage check-in the next morning. They also took us to the airport, and no extra charge for any of it. Hotel Berg has only 12 rooms making this hotel even more attractive, PLUS it was cheaper than the Radisson that we were booked into which has hundreds of rooms. Across the harbour, literally 3minutes walk the evening we were there, we dined at Duus, noted as the best restaurant in Keflavik, and it was a meal to remember, beautiful fresh food overlooking the harbour and the sea. I can't say enough about this hotel, it was a joy, and a climax to our Icelandic holiday. I think because of the Hotel Berg we will be back in Iceland one day. Hotel Berg is a wonderful spot to 'linger' especially if you want to experience the Blue Lagoon and have time there, it is literally down the road, and the hotel will arrange everything for you. They really go beyond to help make a guest's stay the best and carefree!! We will never forget Hotel Berg. It was a treat and a pleasure to be there.

Room Tip: all rooms good and beautifully appointed with fridge, TV etc etc
