Location is right off hwy 1, very convenient. This is more like a bed & breakfast than a hotel. Small rooms, but a relatively large common area. They have a relationship with a restaurant in Hvammstangi that was the best food we had on our trip! Note that the Apple maps app will NOT direct you to the correct location, need to stay on hwy 1, a few km west of turn off to Hvammstangi.

Our room was on the ground floor and the noise from a coach party waiting to go into the restaurant for breakfast woke us up. They were really noisy! Not the hotel's fault but if I were to stay again I would ask for a room away from the restaurant and common lounge area!!!!
