Very nice B&B, with great breakfast and lovely room. Just a little bit little. There is also a washing machine very useful during a long trip. Use it ;) We recommend this B&B well located in husavik just 300 mt from the center.

Judging by other reviews, there are very different rooms in this guesthouse but we got the room that was so small that we could not even open our suitcases properly. In the entire house there are only 2 bathrooms and they happened to be next to our room so all night we heard people walking, opening and closing doors. You... More

Very basic rooms with two shared bathrooms. Bad smell all around. For check-in must go to Husavik Cape Hotel, not far away, where it is also served the breakfast buffet, quite poor. We think that with a few euro more you can find a a better accomodation in the surroundings. We expected something more. We do not recommend it.

I'm a year late on reviewing this, sorry. I stayed here with my wife on a week-long tour of the island. Like most hostels in Iceland, it's a small, older building. I was really impressed with the bathrooms compared to other similar lodgings I'd stayed in around the country. Very clean and probably renovated recently. The bedroom we were in... More

Húsavík Guesthouse is on a quiet street in a charming building, but the two twin bed room we were put in was so small it barely fit the beds. There was about four feet between the end of the beds and the wall/door and the beds were very close together, leaving little room for our bags and our ability to... More

We staid for one night. Its a quiet guesthouse very close to the port of husavik. We had a nice big and clean room. Very friendly host. In Husavik aren't a lot of accomodations and therefor prices are somewhat higher. Breakfast is served in the hotel 200 m away.

We were in Husavik just for a short stopover( of course Whale watching) and decided to stay a night in this nice town. The hosts were very friendly and showed us both the hotel and the guesthouse. And afterwards we were very lucky that we saw the guesthouse as well. Not because of the hotel- they were renovating and the... More

I stayed in Husavik guesthouse for one night in a triple room in July 2012. The guesthouse is the former family home of the family who runs it, along wit the new Cape hotel (opened 2012) nearby. It was a family welcome with the brother in the hotel giving the key, and the sister showing the guesthouse, 500m away. The... More

A very warm welcome from the staff (who used to live in the house when she was a child) after collecting the key from the hotel just down the road. We had a pleasant, clean upstairs room next to the main lounge. Both shared bathrooms are downstairs which meant some traipsing up & down the stairs past those still in... More

It was the most expensive stay for us in Iceland, but Husavik seems to be quite expensive. The guesthouse is located about 5 min walk from the harbour and 2 min from the swimmingpool. It has free WiFi. Towels, linnen and breakfast were included. The manager and his team were very friendly. The room was very small, so we could... More
