The property is in a very good location and conveniently located near Jokulsarlon (only 10m drive from Jokulsarlon). There are 3-4 waterfalls behind the property (which were nice). The condition of the property is okay, the temperature in the room was pretty low and we could not sleep. We were told that the temperature was centrally set to a certain degree but we were not aware of what the degree was set though. A lot of noise was coming from upstairs (construction drilling noise starting 9:30am to 8:30pm). We also noticed that the moisture built up on the door knobs inside the room (yes, inside door knobs had moisture built up), so, I suspect there were some leaks. The photos on expedia are misleading too, for example, dining table, cooking appliances etc. are not there in the common area, in fact there is no common area besides the deck. They charge high prices for the rooms without any amenities. I won't recommend anyone to book this property if other options are available.

We stayed for 2 days in room 5, a corner. High ceilings, nice size. The views are outstanding. Is important to mention that the nearest rest/ bar is 18 minutes from Ekra Hotel. The name is Smyrlabjörg Hotel & BarRest. The food very good. The room doesn’t have coffee maker. Only tea pots.
