Do the job, a bit expensive, good to know that Room 1 and 2 are part of a shared kitchen/living room and above the restaurant's kitchen with all the noise till 11pm but quiet after that time. The room are a bit small but were clean.

I thought the lady was a bit abrupt when she asked me if I wanted to see the menu "again". Actually she turned out to be quite the opposite as she explained that she's just turned 30 and thinks she has started her menopause early (it was so funny!!). The salmon with salad on flatbread was really quite nice (my...

We found Eldsto Art Cafe by chance, staff could not have been more help full kind and inviting. Food was one of the best meals i have ever eaten. Please do yourself a favor and try for yourself. One of the highlights of our trip to this beautiful country.

The place is warm and cozy, the people are friendly and it is clean! The guest house is right next to a super market - I probably wouldn't stay there for days on end because it is quite small but for what we wanted it was perfect.

This guesthouse is perfect for a short stay. The rooms and bathrooms are already new and the breakfast service is perfect. You can also have lunch and dinner and they are great. The staff is pretty good. Recommended.

Nice place - good coffee and sweets. Came back later for lunch of hamburger and smoked lamb on flatbread. Nice people also. But 3 beers for $45!? I know Iceland is expensive but sometimes it feels like being taken advantage of....

We were fortunate enough to pick Eldsto Art Cafe as our stopping point for dinner after a long rainy drive. We has been visiting the east coast of Iceland and decided to stop for dinner. What a treat, excellent food, wonderful waitress, all the tableware is hand made by the owners. If you are passing through Hvolsvöllur, definitely stop for...
