Comfortable hotel with restaurant and great views

Posted 06-Mar-2017
Pros: Charming room. Comfortable sitting area. Good restaurant. Friendly staff.
Location: Hike to Glymur falls. Visit Thingvellir.
I immediately relaxed when I saw the other guests enjoying wine and cocktails as they looked down at the fjord. Dinner was very good. I would enjoy a return visit.

Great view. Double means singles

Posted 07-Feb-2017
The pros:Great view from the soaking tubs and interesting decor throughout the hotel. Breakfast is delish! The cons: Apparently a European double bed is 2 singles pushed together. Not ideal for a romantic getaway! Internet in the room didn't work. Apparently a router was broken. No concierge and no good knowledge about local tourist sites. Luckily I had lonely planet guide with me.

Amazing food

Posted 14-Jan-2017
Pros: The food was incredible
Location: We did a day trip around the Snaefellness Peninsula, starting and ending at the hotel. Then we drove to the Golden Circle upon check-out.
The food in the restaurant was simply amazing. The breakfast buffet was incredible, and the dinner was absolutely delicious. The best meals we had in Iceland. The shower water smelled of sulfur, but everything else about the hotel was great.

Lovely stay

Hotel Glymur is an absolutely wonderful hotel in stunning scenery. With giant windows you can watch the sun rise and set over the water and mountains. The surrounding area is gorgeous and not far from reykjavik. The hotel itself is beautiful and charming, has a wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms and overall comfort that can't be beat at this price.

The best hotel we stayed at

Posted 30-Oct-2016
Cons: Stairs to bed, creaky iron stair rail and floor
Location: Tallest waterfall, which we missed :(
Nice staff, has coffee /tea spot always, hottub, robes, shower that does not flood the whole bathroom. Bed is upstairs in loft. Very large breakfast options included. Nicest lobby. Had 8 nights with 7 hotels and this was the best.

Hotel Glymur

Posted 09-Oct-2016 on Hotels
Overall good, too far from the airport, about 2 hours and nothing around, no restaurants or shops. our only regret was we didn't see northern lights during out 3 days stay.

Wonderfull overnight spot away from it all

Posted 12-Sep-2016
Pros: Room style and food
Cons: I know it is just the way of things in Iceland but this room had the smelliest water in the bathroom of all the places we stayed. Quite overpowering.
Really good use of the space to provide a split level room making it a small studio. Very pleasant indeed. The views from the room were outstanding and the bar and restaurant were top notch. The hot tub is perfectly situated to be sheltered and get the best view.
