    A lovely summer stay at the Álafoss Apartments

    The Álafoss Apartments were lovely! Directly across the street from the river, waterfall, and local shops and a 5 minute walk to the center of town, I was never far from where I wanted to be. My room (“The Tower”) was clean, comfortable, and provided great views of the surrounding area. Our host was friendly and helpful, and ensured that everything was in place for us. This space will certainly be on the top of my list for my next trip.
