We stayed for one night before we flew out of Keflavik. The location is very convenient to the airport and to Blue Lagoon. Tim at check-in was very welcoming, and the room was very clean. It's not a fancy hotel, but it had a restaurant with free breakfast and an honor bar for drinks and snacks. The lounge area was very welcoming, and we loved that it was located in the geothermal energy plant surrounded by lava rock! It felt like we were living in a strange science fiction movie. We would happily stay here again if we're ever in the area.

Strangest location ever for a hotel, even in Iceland: immediately adjacent to a major geothermal power plant. Dining service is unpredictable.

Excellent choice for visiting The Blue Lagoon within walking distance. The aesthetic of the hotel was relaxing and we enjoyed the complementary tea, coffee and snacks at the "honest bar" by lovely seating area. Had a quadruple room and was big enough and very comfortable bedding. We opted for dinner at The Max's Restaurant in the hotel and the food was delicious, service was a bit slow as it was busy. Overall we would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
