    Came to Grundarfjorour to see Kirkjufellsfoss, and while it was an inclement day, the Old Post Office Hotel was a welcome respite. Simple but comfortable single room, and a common area kitchen with nice water views

    Very interesting place. Old as the name said. Very small rooms with shared bathroom but overall very clean. Heated. Good wifi. Big kitchen with all fournitures and two big tables. No breakfast but we cooked dinner and breakfast
