This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on our road trip around Iceland and, although the room was a good size and the beds comfortable, our expectations were disappointed. The heating in the room could not be adjusted because it was underfloor heating for the whole block. The solution offered by the receptionist was 'open the window'. Overnight in a ground floor room? I dont think so! Especially as our faith in human nature had already been severely shaken by the room attendant going through our bags while we were out!! And although the room was too hot for us the 'hot tub' was only luke warm!

Excellent

lovely hotel!

This was a nice property in a good location. They had a great free breakfast in the morning. My only deterrent was we ended up in one of the older rooms. It was fine, but it just paled in comparison to the property as a whole.

Hotel Katla seems like an odd amalgamation of different buildings, which I imagine have different room types with varying degrees of comfort and amenities. We stayed in the newest building and had a huge room that was comfortable and spotless. The hot tub area seemed very cute and included a steam room or sauna. We didn't use those facilities as it was cold and rainy the night we were there, but if the weather was nice or the Northern Lights were shining, it would be a great place to sit and soak. The dinner buffet is good, not great. The breakfast buffet was better. If we were in the area again, I think we'd probably stay at Hotel Katla a second time...

Great location just 4 min from Vik. Great staff service, great breakfast. Only thing is the property has a lot (over 1,000) of mosquitoes in the parking area.

Simple, clean room. Easy to find. Breakfast buffet done well, good variety. I’d stay there again.

Hotel Katla was above our expectations. The reception and restaurant were darling, and the location had beautiful views and surroundings.

Very clean hotel. 4 mins from vik. Awesome hospitality and staff

Nice unique hotel. Good breakfast. That’s all xxxxxxxx. Cxcxxxxx. Cxxxxx. Xxxxxxxxx

Katla looks a bit institutional. It's location a few Km outside of Vik is not ideal. I liked the rustic feel and high ceilings in the guest rooms but the room was a bit run down and the beds were very uncomfortable. One particular negative is that we booked a room for 3 people about 5 months ago and our room had 2 twin beds and a roll away cot despite the reservation being for 3 beds. The breakfast buffet was the high point with waffle makers, fresh bread, herring and a lot of variety.

They did some upgrades since I had booked the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a very nice stay. And the hot tub really hit the spot after a long day of hiking.

Small room but provided what we needed. Full breakfast buffet was included.

Room is big and clean. staff is helpful, willing to help for solving your request. Breakfast is good, you have a choice.
