Nice, comfortable place to stay. It is not fancy, but a good balance between budget and extragavance. Itwas a great location near the city center. The room had a private bathroom with shower. The bathroom was small as expected, butwas very cleanand updated. The wifi was included and worked well. The one thing that made this an exceptionallyniceplace was the very friendly service. The owner, Gunner, was very responsive to all emails, and even offered early check in without us requesting it. I would defiitely recommend this location.

... few tall ones while we were there. Frankly, although fascinating and the original site, it really does pale beside Yellowstone. Not disappointing, but doesn’t reach the gold standard we are spoiled with in the US.
We then went on to Gullfoss, an extremely impressive two-level waterfall. Not as overpowering, alien, and overwhelming as Dettifoss, but prettier and more accessible. I suppose that makes it the best of the trip, which was a great discovery so soon before ...
