Icelandair Hotel Mývatn

Berjaya Mývatn Hotel

Lake Mývatn, Iceland

Built on the same foundation as one of the region’s original hotels, this boutique style property is just a short stroll from Lake Mývatn, Iceland's fourth largest body of water. Beneath the modern glass and wood façade, you’re met with a lobby designed by Swedish installation artist, Michael Johansson, who has reassembled and rearranged items from Hotel Reynihlíð to preserve its historic quality and charm. The quirky theme continues in the 59 stylish rooms and suites, all with contemporary and adventurous Scandinavian decor, walls adorned with black and white photographs and abstract artworks, and bright soft furnishings in hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Modern amenities include flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, telephones, tea and coffee-making facilities, and en suite bathrooms with showers, hair dryers, and toiletries.

Elsewhere, you’ll find outdoor hot tubs from where you can watch the northern lights when they’re visible, a fireplace for relaxing with a book, and a bar that hosts daily happy hours. There’s also a restaurant for buffet breakfasts as well as varied à la carte lunch and dinner menus with Icelandic classics such as lamb, arctic char, and skyr cake. The international prix fixe offerings are equally tempting.


We love this hotel near Lake Mývatn for its warm and welcoming vibe. Its proximity to north Iceland’s attractions such as Ásbyrgi canyon and Dettifoss waterfall makes it a very appealing choice.

Facilities and activities

The hotel has outdoor hot tubs that are ideal for viewing the northern lights when they are visible during the winter.

Environmental and social responsibility

To avoid overwhelming the town’s small sewage system, Berjaya Mývatn Hotel has vacuum toilets. These are loud if flushed with the lid open, so they should be closed after use. Guests who reuse towels and linens will be given credits that can be redeemed at the bar.
