    Really Lovely Modern Zen Cottage!

    We stayed in the private cottage and booked a triple cottage even though we were two people / a couple, as the two person options were quite small. Highly recommend the slightly greater expense for a triple.. Cottages are quite simple, and really lovely - we were honestly amazed at how modern they were .. out there in the middle of nowhere… And thanks to being there we decided go take the dirt roads up to the falls.. and we’re so so happy we did.. better views, less people & better direct waterfall access than the other side of the ravine with paved road..

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Very peaceful place to stay and newly built.

    I have to say up-front that I was upgraded so my review is of the upgraded chalet room seen in the picture rather than in original guesthouse which is about 6km south of this location. The location is great being a short drive off rte 1, and the chalet room was fantastic. Loads of light, private bathroom, a lovely view over a little river which you can walk down to and wade in (very refreshing on the feet). The shared kitchen area is very spacious with lots of amenities including a big TV. The host was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Overall, had a really good night's sleep and would highly recommend this place.

    Minimum comfort for maximum price

    The guesthouse is located in very remote area in proximity to Myvatn Lake. The building where we needed to check in was 3 miles away from the site where actual guesthouse was located. Since we were not aware of it, we needed to drive back and forth couple times before we could get to the room and unpack. The place is composed of a few buildings with one of them serving as a common area with kitchen, refrigerator, dishes and kind of dining room. If weather is not very nice it is kind of inconvenience to walk outside to prepare your meals. The room we had was very tiny without any shelves, or other storage and it was no room to unpack. We hardly could fit our luggage in this room. The bed consisting of two twin beds together took most of the space in the room , leaving about 1-2 feet space along this bed on either side. The facilities were very clean and spotless but lack of space made our staying there very uncomfortable. The price we paid was 150 euro per night and in my opinion it was overpriced. We expected much more comfort and space for this price.
