i stayed at the frumskogar guesthouse for one nnight during my weeklong tril to iceland. i had rented a car and had done the golden circle with plans to continue to south iceland, so i didn't want to go all the way back to reykjavik. gotta say, i was a little annoyed with myself for booking a place in hveragerdi because i had to backtrack on the ring road a bit to go here. however, i am really glad that i came here after all!
hveragerdi is a tiny little town and there are more expensive places to stay. this guesthouse is on a side street but it takes just a few minutes to walk to the main road. it is easy to find, very quiet and nice. i had booked a single room and it was fairly spacious with a sink. the shared bathrooms (2 of them, 1 with toilet only, the other with toilet and shower) weren't ever full. the shower is amazing, super hot water (if you want) and great water pressure. the room was really comfortable and had a tv that i didn't use.
breakfast is not included but is well worth the extra 1000ikr. coffee, juice, granola, yogurt, fruit, meats, smoked salmon, tomatoes, etc. right above the food table is a fantastic display of photos describing how the guesthouse came to exist - this house has been in the family since 1954 and has been operating as a guesthouse since 1983. one of the original owner's sons came back to renovate it and runs it now. great story!
so, if hveragerdi is anywhere close to your route, definitely consider staying here. it is really comfortable, the breakfast is great, and it is extremely good value -- i would have definitely been happy to pay more.
