Cosy Little Hotel for a Stopoff to Next Location.
Posted Sep 4, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel lobby and dining area was beautifully presented and room was fairly clean, but felt a bit dated. Service was ok as no one was manning the front desk when we arrived for check in around midday, and had to wait 5-10 minutes before staff came to greet us. Other than that the check in process was easy and quick. Hotel amenities were alright, but nothing special or above and beyond. Restaurant was nicely presented and served good food for breakfast. Location is a little bit off the beaten track. Still fairly easy to get to but it was away from the main town in the Myvatn area. It was a fairly clear and cooler night so we were lucky enough to catch the Northern lights when we stayed for the night. One thing to be wary of is the sulphuric water/smell from the taps. The hotel utilises geothermic heated water as a hot water source, which turned a couple pieces of our jewelery to different colours, so take your jewelery off when taking a shower. Other than that it was a good place to stay in the Myvatn area as a stopover to your next location!

Thank you for this wonderful review and rating.
I am so glad you were able to catch the Northern lights - they are nowhere more beautiful than by Lake Mývatn.
We hope to welcome you again to Hotel Gígur.
