New owners were awesome & made it such a pleasant stay - made us feel like we were at home instead of guests. If you stay make sure you take advantage of the home cooked meal option. Multiple choices that include: Salmon duet - Smoked and marinated with toast, egg and dill sauce Cured lamb and game paté with blue... More

Arri (that's probably not how he spells his name) picked us up from the airport and the holiday started there thanks to him as far as we were concerned. Not set up like a guesthouse any country iv ever stayed in. There was complete trust, felt more like a private apartment but someone came in and did breakfast, his mother... More

Stayed here for 4 days. The owners were both lovely, very welcoming and friendly and extremely knowledgable of the the area/reykjavik and Iceland in general. We were welcomed on arrival and given a tour of the guesthouse and had a very nice chat. Was a really nice welcome to Iceland. The room was clean, spacious and very comfy (the bed... More

I stayed here for a couple of days and used it as a base to tour sights in driving range of Reykjavik. There is a small parkinglot at the guesthouse itself. The guesthouse itself is a cosy and informal place with a small kitchen. I stayed on the first floor, where you have three rooms.Although the room had a small... More

Booked this guesthouse through VRBO and having never travelled to Iceland before, trusted the information on the site by the owner. He greeted us at the airport and drove us from the airport to the guesthouse full of information, friendly and approachable. He showed us our room - one right on the main drag beside what has to be the... More

When a discrepancy with dates from my booking.com reservation at this hotel was discovered, the proprietor did not honestly work through the cancellation process and rather charged a full 90€ for the unused night. He also made the full rate again by booking the same room to someone else - quite dishonest. There was also no parking available.

Our family group of eleven people found this the ideal place to stay, booking the entire house of six bedrooms. Bedrooms had washbasins and we all shared the two showers and two toilets downstairs, which worked pretty well for our family. We enjoyed Room 4, the largest which could accommodate more than two people. Everything was clean and comfortable. There... More

With such a big group, our family needed a place where we could all be together. This guesthouse suited us perfectly when we booked 3 rooms upstairs for 8 people. Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Each room was equipped with a sink, while the toilets (2) and showers (2) were shared. We did not purchase the... More

Arriving at 2am in the morning, we were welcomed by Orri, the owner of the hotel waiting for us in the street: what a service! The rooms are small, but well and newly furnished and very clean. 2 showers and 2 lavatories are for common use (for 6 rooms). It was always (!) very clean, and there was no problem... More
