    I liked the decor of the rooms and dining area. The furniture was somewhat novel and the restaurant had good good food and I found the staff/musicians very entertaining. The room was somewhat small but comfortable.

    Very nice hotel and restaurant. Clean spacious room, kettle in the room. Nice breakfast. Interesting design. Seafront across the road. Easy to get to from the airport. Free internet. Very helpful managers. Excellent value for money. Great substitute for Reykjavik's hotels if you travel by car.After we stayed there for 1 night we came back later during our trip as it looked much better vs. other hotels around.

    Fabulous

    The guy at the desk of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The beds were excellent. The design of the hotel is quite extraordinary (if you like that sort of thing). Rooms were cleaned fast (but see the catch in the negatives).

    The rooms could be cleaned better and the ladies should be more precise with the replacement of items. If you have a room at the harbour front (which are roomy and excellent) then beware of the busy road and the bus stops nearby. The restaurant next to the hotel attracts tourist groups which can be noisy leaving around midnight. However, the rooms are double glazed and thus keeping your windows closed helps a lot. Lastly; the parking spot for disabled people should be marked better (by painting it blue like everywhere else). We where unable to use it most of the time because it was taken by non-handicapped people!

    The atmosphere of the place, and the great link to viking culture. Very laid back and trusting manner of checking out.

    The design of the hotel is very smart and stylish, the nearby Viking restaurant is a thing not to miss despite the questionnable quality of food, relating to it price and seriously bad-mannered stuff.

    We stayed there for 3 nights and during our stay nobody ever cleaned the room or changed our sheets. We specifically asked the maid on our 3d day of staying to clean it, recieved the "yes" answer, left the room for several hours, returned and it was as dirty as ever. We stayed in Iceland during our visit in 7 hotels all around the island and this one was by far our only bad experience.

    The Viking hotel had a great atmosphere and fantastic character to it. Excellent proximity to the town centre and harbor. Really enjoyed the breakfast which was included in the price, freshly baked bread every morning and delicious marmalade. Staff friendly and helpful - we got a flat battery and they immediately assisted us with restarting the car - much appreciated.

    the staff are really nice, they not talk much but always show friendly and cordial. i lost my lugguage at the in the 1st midnight , they help me to call the airport bus company and my problem settled the next morning.

    Fabulous

    Although the hotel is a bit funky in design with its viking motifs, the room was actually clean and a bit larger than normal since it had an extra bed. Our bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It came with a kitchenette, but we didn't use it. It was also the cheapest place we stayed. It was located on the harbor which was nice. It had an elevator

    The viking style was a little over the top. If you didn't have a car you would have to take a bus to get to the Reykjavik

    Not even Disney could have made a better viking hotel. Everything is viking style without being corny. The restaurant is overprices and the food is ordinary but the decor in the restaturant is awesome.

    Very good

    Very easy to find and lots of free parking. A short walk into town and to the lovely harbour. Good variety at breakfast although it did not change at all so probably best for short stay visitors.

    In the description of the hotel it stated that there were black-out blinds - something that I thought necessary as there is 24 hours of daylight in June! However these were a pair of ill fitting curtains that allowed light in all around the edges. The description also said that toiletries were provided - these consisted of one push-type dispenser for soap! A good thing I took my own.

    Fabulous

    I was only booked in for one night, but it was very good. The only gripe was the breakfast, but I would recomend people to stay here. The staff on the front desk get 10/10 for their help and assistance towards myself, above and beyond the call of duty. Many thanks to them all.

    Breakfast, a bit sparse

    Good

    The location of this hotel was good for our itinerary.

    The rooms were extremely small and provided nowhere to put even small pieces of luggage and provided nowhere to sit other than on the bed. The window did not open, and there was no ventilation in the stuffy room. The bathroom was also very small and difficult to use conveniently. The walls were very thin between rooms, and we could hear conversations.

    Superb

    Good interior, good restaurant near hotel, easy connection with Reykjavik, easy to find without navigator by car, near to seafromt, good view from window, reasonable price (maybe I was in low season in the end of April).

    Little bit noisy from a street nearby.
