This hotel is literally right across the street from the Geysir geothermal area. During the day, it's clogged with tour busses, but at night the area is all yours. We spent the days exploring other area attractions, and then checked in on the geysir when we got back in the evening.
The rooms were small, spartan duplex cabins that really proved quite serviceable. It worked great for the different groups of our family to have cabins close to each other. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The restaurant served a very nice evening meal, and it was too bad that we didn't have time to try the geothermically heated pool.
