The Narfastaðir guesthouse is a place to feel like at home. It is a simple but good hotel at a remote location close to Laugar, directly at the ring road. And thereby it is the perfect place to explore the Mývatn area just around the corner. What I really liked there is that they have a central shared living room; you don’t have to stay in your hotel room or hang out in the restaurant – you can just sit on a sofa in between other visitors, read a book, chat or watch TV.
The guesthouse offers a large variety of rooms from small to family size and also has a hot tub outside. It seems to be in the hands of one family for generations and maybe that is the reason why it feels so comfortable, even as it isn’t the most modern hotel.
