Hotel Ranga was a great find. The staff went out of their way to alert the guests when the northern lights appeared and The loft area was so cozy to relax in after a long day of hiking. The breakfast was also very good. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two weeks in October. We were surprised to find most people only staying one or two nights. We found it a good base for exploring - but a car was essential. There is so much to see and do in Iceland - a beautiful country.
The hotel worked well - comfortable room, good breakfast, free wifi, lovely spa. We didn't try the restaurant which was expensive - and there were other good options nearby.
We were lucky to get a north-facing room - facing the river with the mountain opposite and (on a couple of nights) the northern lights visible despite the street lights.
This is one of the best hotels we stayed on our holidays in Iceland. It is close to the Geysir and some volcanos, it is also close to the valley where tectonic plates meet and it is just a very lovely and beautiful place.
It has amazing rooms with extremely comfortable beds, very professional staff who make you feel in a really luxury hotel, the room for breakfast is sooo beautiful we stayed there for more than 2 hours and the food is delicious.
We want to go back and stay in this hotel again.

Stayed one night in a room for 3. Room was spacious and beds comfortable. Also had a bath in the bathroom as well as a shower. Excellent swimming pool and hot tub outside. Breakfast was poor so recommend finding a local bakery instead.
This is a nice hotel in an area of Iceland that has few. The location is convenient to some very scenic places like the Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon, and is within driving distance of Skaftafell, the major draw in the area. It is a little expensive, but the rooms are nice. Dinner is expensive (though not unduly so by Icelandic standards), and the breakfast is terrific (though it costs extra). Wi-fi was free when we were there, though this may not always be so. The standard rooms do not include a kettle or coffee-maker, but you can get a teapot full of hot water at the restaurant, so bring your own teabags and instant coffee.
Hotel staff is awesome - especially Julian. Clean, nice rooms. Shower doesn't actually have a shower stall, so shower can create a mess in the bathroom. There is a curtain, but water gets all over the floor. Decent location, but there's nothing close by. Make sure you eat dinner prior to arriving or be prepared to spend a lot on the hotel's dinner.
