We requested to reserved this place the day before we wanted to stay there. Bjossi accepted our request within 5 minutes and this was very helpful for us!
The place was clean and located in a very neat area with plenty of hiking trails. We recommend the trail to the hot river. You could walk from their place but it would easier to take a short drive (<5 minutes) up to the parking space.
As other people commented, the fold down bed is small, so just keep that in mind.
We enjoyed our time here although it was very brief.
Bjossi and Inga welcomed us nicely and very kindly helped us with a couple of things. After that they left us to enjoy the cabin. Hveragerdi is a good base because the 50m swimming pool and hot tubs there are excellent - a great way to relax after a days outing. The geo-thermal area in the centre is also fun, and the walk to the hot river is a must. The cabin is in a very quiet suburb so you will get a good nights sleep.
The cabin is pretty small and sofa bed is very narrow - so be prepared for that. It is a handy location - just a short walk to the Sumark shop mall, the ring road bus stop and the tourist info. It is also warm and dry and very good value. Great base for a couple of days so you can explore the area.
great stay! quite easy to find, calm, clean, great location, enough space for 2 people. it was very nice to find coffee and thermos in the room - definitively host has been thinking of us. coffee we used, thermos - didn't because we have been living the area and we have been equipped with our own. wifi is available and is quite speedy. to find house key was a challenge for us - i hope that was after long flight we've became so funny stupid! you should dial code provided by Bjossi and OPEN the cover. key is just in the niche. i should say we've arrived around noon and i was obliged to wake up our host to liberate the key...
Nous avons passé 4 nuits dans ce petit studio. Emplacement parfait pour découvrir le sud de l'Islande ! Studio très bien équipé mais le lit est un peu petit...
I don't want to be picky but the coach bed is really too small for two people. and the wifi connection is almost impossible unless I stand out of my door. other nice-to-have supplies may include a hair-dryer, some shampoo, and sugar and salt. anyway, the location is nice in a quiet beautiful town.
A clean, simple, and small-but-functional space with access to everything promised. The only concern is that the fold-out couch is not really for two people, especially not two larger people like we are. If you're super skinny and want to be cozy, it'll work. In any case, the location served our needs. There was no interaction with the host, which was okay for us since we had a rather ambitious itinerary.
Bjossi was very nice and we booked him last minute. His studio is nice and very clean, but the problem is that his couch bed is only comfortable for 1 person and can barely fit 2 people. This caused me to sleep on the hard wood floor for the night making it very uncomfortable. Also, the wifi signal is not very strong so we had to use our devices close to the front door which it is separated from the dining table and couch.
We stayed one night at Björns, and it was great. Thank you very much! The bed-couch is quite small for two people to sleep on it, but it workes ;-)
Great but small place. Simple access. Perfect for a night.
