It was a wonderful experience, the staff was so wonderful, the meals delicious, the layout of the place amazing, the music incredible!!!!!! Recommended 100% along with the Auroras staying or eating at Viking Village is a MUST in Iceland!!!!

We stopped here after an overnight flight from the States and trying to power through the day. They let us check in an hour early which words can’t express how grateful we were for that. The hotel is very Viking themed which is why we chose it. The furniture was really neat in the common areas. The bed was VERY comfortable which was badly needed. The breakfast left a lot to be desired, but the breakfast room was beautiful.

We recently returned from our vacation in Iceland.The hotel we stayed was Viking Village Hotel.20 minutes from the airport,20 minutes by bus to downtown Reykjavik.Bus stop is across the street from the hotel. Very nice,quaint,well maintained hotel.Staff was friendly,helpful.English spoken by everyone.Booked a trip through the hotel.Check in,out-fast.Clean rooms-ocean and harbor views,hearty breakfast.Restaurant has a very icelandic menu-worth trying all the local items!Thank you all for a really nice icelandic experience.Will be back!

We stayed for just one night and arrived very early in the day, the lady on the desk was. Really Helpful with helping us book the airport bus and explaining the bus routes to us aswel as some other excursions. The room (32 I think it was) was large and clean with a great view over the water to the hotel front. It was very quiet aswel. We didn't use the hot tub in the end. But it was offered to be turned on without fuss when we. Asked about it The attached restaurant is really. Neat, I was a little apprehensive initially about the whole hotel, Worrying it would be cheesey but honestly, It wasn't, the restaurant was especially good. The service was fast and the staff were cheerful, albeit expensive to eat, but portions were large. The beer on tap was amazing after a solid day out as well. I would return again if I was planning on staying close to the city, it seems most issues visitors have had could have been resolved with just speaking to staff, we. Found them to be very flexible

We initially had booked to stay at the fisherman’s village, however due to some issues, we stayed or second night at the Viking hotel. They will more then happy to transfer us, and were so helpful in regards to booking transport to the airport and sorting out activities whilst in Iceland. The hotel I expected to be a little cheesy, however that was far from the case. Everything fitted, the interior was classy and with lots of attention to detail. The room was simple, but clean and a very comfy bed with a lovely view. We had a meal in the restaurant which was pricy, but keeping in with Icelandic prices and the food was good with a good sized portion

We arrived at about 10am, and our room wasn't ready (we didn't expect it to be) they looked after our bags for us so we could go out for the day, when we came back we got upgraded to a superior room with a view across the harbour, a nice big room with a good sized shower room (te funky smell of the sulphur takes some getting used to in the hot water, but that's Iceland not the hotel) Breakfast was good, a hearty bowl of porridge and plenty of pickled fish, just what I want in Iceland, I didn't go there for a full English! The staff were helpful and again looked after our bags when we checked out as we had an evening flight. The hotel is themed and great fun, with it's own cave (with water running down the walls) and plenty of carved wood, the restaurant was priced for Iceland, so not cheap by UK standards but acceptable for Iceland It's a fair way outside Reykjavik, but with a bus stop outside and the main No 1 bus running straight past the door it was simple and cheap to get into town (get the bus app, it shows the busses, where they are and you can buy your tickets through the app) Very pleasant hotel in a great location on the harbour

My son and I spent 3 nights at this location. He loved the Viking theme and I enjoyed the location. The rooms were small and very basic but clean. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were friendly and made multiple phone calls for me trying to fix an itinerary error for me. Was overall very happy with our stay. Thank you to the front desk women that helped me!

Quaint historical hotel depicting the viking era.Solid wood furniture and structure giving it a unique richness.Very small rooms with minimal moving space which was a let down.Good breakfast with helpful staff.Front desk could have been pleasanter.

Rooms are clean with good bed linen. Some are small but requests for a change will be considered if possible. Service was excellent and the breakfast superb with plenty of choice and lovely coffee. Staff couldn't do enough to help. The hot tub was welcome to revive legs after a day of climbing up steps and steep slopes while sight seeing. Tours are happy to come out and collect from the hotel even though it is about 20 minutes away in a mini bus. Bus service into the city was regular and easy to catch from nearby bus stop although you need the correct change. The water comes from the hot spring near the hotel and although it smells of sulphur makes your skin so soft. Really pleasant and made the whole experience more Icelandic. Lots of viking crafts to buy at the hotel. Supermarket nearby and a number of small restaurants we tried the Thai which was both cheap (for Iceland) and filling. View from our window was the town and the harbour which were excellent.

Beautiful Viking Style thème hotel located in the Viking Village about 30 min away from Reykjavik. Great Viking style decor, located on a beautiful water front. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They serve a traditional Icelandic breakfast which is delicious and filling. The rooms are cozy and small but have all you need. They have hot tub and sauna outside which makes it even more relaxing. Great place and I will definitely stay there again.
