Touris arranged this accommodation for us and we were happy with their choice. The Asgardur is similar to a motel in North America. It is an older 2-storey guesthouse with no elevators. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Furniture was slightly dated but that didn't bother us. Beds were comfortable. Huge windows overlooked the sea. There was no internet... More

Not sure what the official definition of guesthouse versus hotel is in Iceland, but this was a two story hotel by American standards. There is not elevator to the second floor (typical for Iceland). The check-in staff was very friendly and provided a town map marked with restaurant recommendations. Our room had a fantastic view of the harbor. Room was... More

There is little charm to this hotel or the rooms, but the price is right. The rooms future twin beds with little adornment and there is little in the way of a lobby (generic Ring Road accommodations, in this regard). Free wifi is nice, but one must move to the dining area to connect. Breakfast is fine. A solid place... More

We stayed one night here. Our room was a bit small, but otherwise well equipped with TV, king-size bed and a clean private bathroom. If you choose (like us) a room with a sea-side view then you will enjoy the great view on the lake Lagarfljot and the glacier beyond. The breakfast was quite good and the free WIFI was... More

We had booked there early 2012 2 nights for june 2012. We are used to travel through iceland every summer from 3 years changing of cottage or B+B every two nights (and through many others countries from 15years). This has been our very first bad experience. Very small chalet (we knew it by adv) but very old furniture. and We... More

This is more of a hotel than a guesthouse. The decor seems a bit dated, but it is very clean and well-kept. The beds were quite comfortable. Wifi is available in the common areas. The breakfast was excellent! Don't miss sunrise, the views of the glaciers and the sunrise over the harbour are stunning!

This hotel reminded me of a dorm. It had the basics which is really all we needed since we were just sleeping there for 1 night. The owner's son and his family were running it for the winter and were really friendly. They did not have dinner options but there was plenty of restaurants in town. He recommended Cafe Hornid...

The location of the hotel is very convenient and it is easy to find. Our room had a nice view overlooking the bay but the room was bit small for three of us. However we stayed only one night there and space available was not a major issue for us. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful to all... More

We stayed here for 1 night with our 1yo son. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The view is breathtaking from the hotel, make sure you get one of te rooms on the harbour side. Staff members speak very good English, but this is not a surprise in Iceland. Breakfast was also nice. We enjoyed staying here, great... More

Guesthouse Ásgarður is right on the fiord front looking over the water towards the glaciers. Thus, if you are on the correct side (the side with odd numbered rooms) you have a spectacular view. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The breakfast buffet was standard and there is free wifi. There is no restaurant in the hotel but "Gastronomy... More
