Like many others, we stayed here the night before flying out early the next morning. We wanted a lower cost alternative to expensive Reykjavik hotels. It was clean and comfortable and Jona was a great host being very helpful to us and responding quickly to email. We probably spent a total of 7 hours here simply to crash on our... More

I spent one night as I was traveling back to the airport the next day. Price and location are great. I had a one bedroom with a shared bathroom. Overall, the entire place is clean and cozy. Will come back and stay here again :)

We stayed here with 2 adults and one child for 1 night beginning of August 2013. We shared one room. The guesthouse is easy reachable by car and quite close to Reyk. Jona is an excellent host. We hadn't enjoyed such a great breakfast in a guesthouse ever before! So many choices and great pancakes. The sleeping room and the... More

We were in Gunnarsholmi Ghesthouse last week for three days and we really enjoyed our stay. We were lucky enough to have the entire house to ourselves and Jona let us pick whichever room we wanted. We stayed upstair near the living room. It was really nice, warm and so comfy, very comforting after long days trekking in the cold... More

We stayed in late July for two nights, and found it charming, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, and Jona Margaret was a wonderful host. She was very understanding when we arrived late at night, and she was extremely helpful throughout our stay. The house is a great choice for those looking to stay near, but not in, Reykjavik. Having... More

We stayed here our first 3 nights in Iceland and it couldn't have been a better choice for us. The owner, Jona Margret, was very friendly and welcoming and her breakfasts turned out to be the very best we had in all of Iceland. When she asked what we wanted to drink in the mornings, I asked about hot chocolate... More

We stayed in the guest house for 3 nights. It is very convenient, countryside but not too far from Reykjavík. We did not have a car, so took a cab twice from Reykjavík, paid 6000 ISK, what is reasonable. And was not a problem for the touristic attraction people to pick us up from there, so close it is.

The out side of the place was not like its inside..the somewhat broken fence hid a very cosy guesthouse. Room was good, bed was great. Kitchen facillities, good free coffee. We somehow misunderstood that breakfast was a possibility. It seems that we missed! It is a bit far from reikjavik, not a substitute to staying in town.

Very good place to stay. The owners are very familiar. We arrived at a day, at which a familiar member had birthday. The owner came to us with a piece of cake. It was very nice and we were surprised. In the morning we got an enormous breakfast with everything someone can wish.
