    This was the first place we stayed in our travel to Iceland and its warmth and quality did not failed us. The room was lovely and well kept, clean and effective. A lovely view and basic yet well achieved decoration was perfect.

    Sorry, I don't remember if there was an ATM. We never had trouble using debit and credit cards in Iceland except at a remote lodging place in the west.
