We spent one night here as part of a tour to the Blue Ice Cave. Have never stayed anywhere like this before- Thank God. No soap in the shower. One towel per person and they were differing shades of gray. One outlet in the room. To describe the rooms as minimal is an understatement. No WiFi, almost no hot water....

Room was plain, clean, sort of like a youth hostel. Price was buried in tour price so can't comment on that. Included breakfast was only fair. Dinners were a bit pricey but food was hardy with big portions. They raise their own lamb and Arctic char so it's all fresh.

We stayed one night as part of a tour. The section we stayed in looked brand new. Very clean and comfortable. The Lamb dinner was delicious (need to order ahead of time). The included breakfast was very good - many options of both hot and cold food. The staff was very friendly. There were a lot of us checking in...

Had a comfortable overnight stay here. Hot beverages were provided free all through the night at the hotel reception. The eatery served a tender lamb dish. We throughly enjoyed the lamb. Do order beforehand if you plan to have it. The eatery is small and there would tour groups staying over. After dinner, we spent our evening admiring and taking...

We stayed a night in a cabin belonging to Gerdi Guesthouse in December 2016. The booking was made on a fairly short notice and still that was not a problem and they made it work even though the area is in heavy demand. The cabin was clean and cozy and in a perfect location since it is only about a...

The guest house is good but the best part is that it's next to the sea N surrounded by mountains. The best part is when I had lost hopes to c northern lights, fortunately we saw that n a lot of people at our hostel told that they couldn't from a long time. Due to full moon the norther lights...

There aren't lots of options around this area and Gerdi Guesthouse was one of the slightly more affordable options in the vicinity. Especially if you are a hobby photographer, you will want to pick an option nearest to Jokulsarlon. So there you have it. The next to nearest little settlement to the ice lagoon. That small area has like 3...

The heating in our room is not working but the hotel declined to change to other room, only providing a heater,, whose power is too little to help at all. For the whole night, it is cold in our room. btw, the dinner here is expensive. The food is ok, but not worth the price.

No frills but super clean, comfortable, warm, good dinner and breakfast and welcoming and well organized staff. We were extremely lucky and got to see on a clear winter sky bright northern lights right out the porch of our room.
