Reviews - Hotel Hafnarfjordur

Reykjavikurvegi 72 , Hafnarfjordur, 220
Hotel Hafnafjordur is located in the beautiful harbour town which offers FREE PARKING all over town for travellers to Reykjavik Iceland.
Hafnarfjordur surrounded by lava and “elves”. The hotel is a good choice for those who want to enjoy the freedom of staying in comfortable rooms or studio apartments but with a full hotel service.

We offer you all new deluxe and soundproofed bright apartments, each equipped with beautiful new furniture. Apartments are single, double, also we offer special rooms for the families with kids, also extra beds are available. For your safety there are fire alarms with smoke detectors in each room, and there are security cameras in the corridors.

A kitchenette is in every apartment, equipped with a microwave oven, coffee machine, toaster, refrigerator, and all other necessary cooking utility. Bathrooms are larger than average, with tiled walls and floors, 90cm shower stall (safety-glass) and a cabinet with mirror, light and power outlets by the sink.

Great location, only 10 minutes to center of Reykjavik, ONLY 20 minutes to the Blue Lagoon and 30 minutes from Keflavik International airport and all destinations. All excursions; tours and bus tickets can be booked by Tour Desk in Hotel

Very handy having the keys in a box with a code. Had some difficulty finding the apartment with our GPS. A detailed map would help.

Better than it looks!
Arriving at Hotel Hafnafjordur is a memory I'll retain for quite some time. A well versed Brit, on the phone to a friend in Reykjavik, announced our arrival minutes before we got there. "I've just gone under the bridge and we're going to stop at that weird, ugly hotel in the middle of nowhere."
As it emerged on the main road to Reykjavik, Hotel Hafnafjordur was pretty unremarkable. For sure, it was a big, industrial looking hotel on a main road. Crossroads, the motel soap opera of the eighties sprang to my mind, which just made me giggle. I didn't stop!
Believe them when the booking says check in is at 2pm. I don't recommend getting there too early, as nobody was around until then.
The rooms were a great size, with desk and TV, as well as WiFi. And featuring a kitchenette, we could store wine in the fridge and make coffee before heading down to breakfast in the morning. The bathroom again was spacious and offered laundered towels and free toiletries.
I'm not going to lie: the view was of a motorway, so it lacked romance, but since that wasn't what we stayed there for: it was all good.
Wandering around the lava fields on a convoluted route to the harbour gives you a sense of 'the Iceland that is no Reykjavik'. There are interesting statues, modern art and a bizarre church, a homage to Hallgrimskirkja which litter the elf infested caves.
Down at the harbour, an excellent seafood restaurant, Tilveran, serves incredibly velvety lobster soup for less than £10. It's this amazing soup that make Hafnafjodur come into its own.
All in all, for the price, the hotel is perfectly fine and serves a delicious breakfast, included in the price.

Great way to see Iceland on a budget
The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful.
The kitchen facilities ment we didn't have to spend money on expensive meals out as we were on a tight budget. The kitchen is small but we managed to cook simple meals successfully. (there is no chopping knife provided though)
