I booked this guesthouse as it was a cheaper option than staying in Reykjavik city centre. Lily could not have been more helpful, starting with booking my travel from the airport, making me feel very welcome the second I arrived at the guesthouse and sorting out bus travel around Reykjavik. The room was airy and comfortable and the curtains helped... More

My father and I stayed here on our recent trip to Iceland, along with two other guest houses, one in Reykjavik city and one in Vik. We both agreed that Guesthouse Lily was our favorite. Our plane landed at 11:30 PM, and by the time we got our rental car it was 1:30 AM (still light out though! Crazy Iceland... More

I chose Lily for my tourist. Place is clean, with sharing kitchen in Kopavogur just town next to Reykjavik. While most of tourists are organized with ren"r a car, there is not need to stay downtown Reykjavik and it is how Lily makes welcome to my tourists.

Not close to downtown but a short drive if you come by a rental car. Close to the Perlan complex and has a supermarket near by. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were very clean and so were the bathrooms and showers. It wasn't a full house so no pressure on the showers at all. The breakfast was modest... More

My daughter and I stayed two nights in August here to avoid paying a much higher fee for a hotel in downtown Reykjavik. We were warmly greeted; felt "at home" throughout tyhe stay; our room was impeccably clean and comfortable. Special kudos of exceptional deference goes to the night manager on duty, Mr Pauli Rafn Eriksson (perhaps a distant descendant... More

My wife and I spent three full days with Lilly at her guesthouse and we loved the experience. Lilly couldn't have been more helpful when we needed help and suggestions and actually drove us twice instead of letting us struggle around on our own. The guesthouse is located within easy walking distance of a major bus stop which will get... More

I was in Reykjavik last week for 6 nights and as it is indeed high season in Iceland I had to stay in a guesthouse as opposed to a hotel which I'm much more used to for hotels were just too pricey. Well I was in for a very pleasant surprise ! The place was spotlessly clean, the room was... More

We stayed one night in July in a family room. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were confortable. Quiet environment. The breakfast was copious and good. Lily and Viktor are very kind and helpful, ready to help you and to give phone calls. If we had to go back to Reykjavik, we would go to Lily's without... More
