Family hotel for fly drive holidays in Iceland

Hotel Hafnarfjordur, the apartment hotel in the Reykjavik capital area provides excellent value for holidays in Iceland. Apartment hotels in Iceland give increased freedom and comfort without losing essential hotel services.

Family fly-drive holidays in Iceland are an unforgettable experience; but not necessarily one best suited to staying in a traditional hotel. On the other hand, most holiday apartment complexes lack the best elements of hotel service. That’s where an apartment hotel like Hotel Hafnarfjordur comes in.

Hotel Hafnarfjordur combines the freedom of stylish, self-contained apartments with the comfort of a helpful reception open 24/7, internet access, tourist information and a bar, among other things.

Those looking for family hotels in and around Reykjavik could do worse than choosing charming Hafnarfjordur.

Just a few minutes’ drive from the shops and restaurants of Reykjavik, Hafnarfjordur is an entirely separate town with its own shops, tourist attractions and bars and restaurants.

Set around a pretty old harbour in a stunning lava field conveniently on the way to Keflavik International Airport, Hafnarfjordur is famous for its elves, its horse riding, its Christmas Village and also its Viking Village tourist centre.

Old Hafnarfjordur fans out from the town harbour in a maze of well-maintained bright painted timber houses. The intimate harbour is always busy with boats and the town centre boasts a pleasant stream full of ducks and small fish, an eclectic mix of shops and boutiques, as well as many excellent options for eating and drinking.

Hotel Hafnarfjordur has another distinct advantage over Reykjavik hotels: namely that visitors staying there find it extremely easy to visit Reykjavik as often as they like; but visitors staying in Reykjavik very often miss unique and beautiful Hafnarfjordur altogether. Ignorance may be bliss, but visitors to Hafnarfjordur know better!

Hotel Hafnarfjordur’s useful website contains lots of useful information on the Icelandic apartment hotel. Information includes prices, special offers, a description of facilities and an extensive collection of photographs to help prospective guests find a feel for the place.
