We stayed in the brand new building with the nice view

Behind the hotel was a short trail leading to the most amazing scenery at sunset!!!

Beautiful views from the bar. Staff were excellent.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Very welcoming. Part of the property is still under construction but they have people stay in it. The restaurant there was very good but a little pricey.

The staff was amazing at Hotel Skaftafell and went the extra mile. I was wowed with how much they did for me to help. Their location is very convenient along the ring road. Perfect stop along your trip around Iceland ring road. They are very near to the glacier and Svartifoss waterfall.

Great hotel in the location. Beautiful View from the hotel they are great with calling people if the Northern Lights are visible. Great place to get to and from the Diamond BEach, Vatnajokull Glacier etc.

The room is outdated, food was ok but pricey, location is very close to Skaftafell national park 10 min drive.

Hotel is old and so it looks like motels in US. Front desk is friendly and room is clean. But beds are uncomfortable as its older and lack of support, too soft. My back hurts each morning when get up in the morning. Good location as it nears national park. Breakfast buffet is just continental style breakfast, not much choices. For some reason, the male staff keeps looking at the food that you take from the buffet as if you are eating too much. Staff serving the breakfast all seems unpleasant, no smile nor hello at all.

Great hotel, given the rural location the accommodations were a pretty bare bones, but provided all the needs of a standard hotel (free tea, coffee, TV, great wifi service). Wonderful service all around, and the restaurant food was fabulous (expensive - but fabulous). Would go again!

Three of us shared a room. It was large and comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic. Dinners also were delicious, but expensive. My only complaint is the receptionist never sent us a wake up call to see the northern nights even though he said he would call us.

Warm room, good breakfast. Close to gas station & has a good restaurant for rural Iceland. 2 km drive to park entrance. Great overall

Great location, but outdated hotel. Expensive for what you get.

Hotel furnishings were a little dated, but all in very good condition. Bed was comfortable and end room was quiet. Meals - breakfast (included) and supper (pricey but worth it) were excellent. The national park and glacial lagoon nearby make this hotel nicely positioned for adventure.
