Cozy hotel perfect for seeing the Northern Lights

Posted 22-Jan-2016
Pros: Location, lack of light pollution.
Cons: The beds are strange. Bedding could also be updated.
Location: Perfect for seeing the Northern Lights.
Decent hotel. Kind of strangely laid out. When you walk into the room there's the bathroom and a little seating area - then you go up a flight of stairs to the beds. The beds upstairs are a little interesting. Picture attached below since I don't even know how to explain. Overall, you're staying here to see the Northern Lights - you should be successful.

Wonderful hotel in a great location

Posted 13-Jan-2016
Great hotel, we were given a warm welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff. The location is great for viewing the northern lights, but still close enough to Reykjavik and sightseeing areas.

An Icelandic treat

Posted 17-Aug-2015 on Hotels
Pleasantly surprised by this gem on a hill overlooking a fjord. Truly the best place to stay in that part of Iceland. Upgrade to a villa if you can--each comes with its own hot tub.

Kleinod an einem der schönsten Fjorde Islands, dem

Posted 11-Aug-2015
Pros: Das extrem geschmackvoll eingerichtete und in jeder Beziehung großzügige Häuschen, die Aussicht in die wunderschöne Landschaft, die Stille.
Cons: Nach dem Eindruck eines Zimmers im Haupthaus könnte in diese Zimmer sicher mal was investiert werden. Die Häuschen sind neu und nicht zu toppen.
Location: Das Hotel liegt am Ufer des Hvaljördur; nah sind Pingevellir, Gulfoss, der Langjökull (von innen begehbarer Gletscher), und natürlich Glymur selbst!
Wir hatten ein Zimmer im Haupthaus des Hotels gebucht, das gefiel uns aber wegen mangelnder Sicht vom Bett aus auf die wunderschöne Landschaft und den Hvaljördur nicht so gut, und so bekamen wir für einen Aufpreis von 50€ eines der alleinstehenden Häuschen, die zum Hotel gehören. Das übertraf dann alle unsere Erwartungen - es war tatsächlich ein komplett und äusserst geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus mit allem Komfort, und vor allem mit einer phantastischen Sicht über den Fjord und in die zauberhafte Landschaft. Das Haupthaus selbst ist ebenfalls in den Aufenthaltsräumen sehr stilvoll und warm eingerichtet, alte Möbel, viele Bücher. Ganz in der Nähe, am Ufer des Hvaljördur, eine malerische Kapelle nebst altem Friedhof. Besser hätten wir es nicht antreffen können; wir haben uns so wohl gefühlt, dass wir trotz des stolzen, aber für isländische Verhältnisse absolut angemessenen, Preises unseren Aufenthalt um eine Nacht verlängerten.

2 nights at Hotel Glymur

Posted 04-May-2015 on Hotels
Hotel was very charming, beautifully situated rooms so that the large picture window in all rooms look over the fjord. The restaurant was fabulous and the hot tubs a wonderful treat at the end of the evening. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and checked road conditions for us at every opportunity. We will definitely return here!

Quirky hotel in fantastic location

Posted 30-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Stayed for 2 nights on a trip to Iceland. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was hearty fair, with the breakfast buffet particularly good. The location is fantastic no matter the weather. We saw the Northern Lights - it was great location for it. Big skies. Only down side was the room which was on 2 levels but a bit small and could do with a bit of investment.

Great Little Hotel

Posted 07-Jan-2015 on Hotels
Spent two nights at Hotel Glymur - hoping to see Northern lights - but without success unfortunately (they do offer a wake up service if the Northern Lights appear at night). Lovely hotel with a slightly wacky and bohemian feel to it - staff were great - nothing too much trouble. Beautiful but isolated location - long drive of you ant to eat anywhere other than the hotel. Food excellent but quite expensive (but ten it is everywhere in Iceland). Decent breakfast included in the room rate. The only issue I had was with the lighting throughout the hotel - it's very gloomily lit - which amazed me for country where it's dark half the year.
