The Aurora Guesthouse is not a five star hotel, but it is comfortable, clean, and convenient. The staff was helpful and accommodating. We arrived very late and a staff person was in the office to check us in. We had an early shuttle bus to the airport and the desk manager explained how to grab breakfast for ourselves before we...

Pick this guesthouse for it's location and you'll do fine. I felt like there were perhaps too many rooms sharing one bathroom, but thankfully the waits were not too long. The rooms are on the smaller side, but if you're only in them for the night, it's good enough. Everything was clean and tidy and neat. The service varies as... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great-just up from the bus station and round the corner from the cathedral. The walk into town is about 10 mins. There is free Wifi and tea and coffee at the guesthouse, which was great considering the high prices in Reykjavik and was perfect when coming in from a cold trip.... More

Stay was ok. Had a fairly comfortable room, although it wasnt serviced in 3 days. Breakfast was good, and it was in a good location. Didnt seem to have much of a problem sharing the bathroom. Wi fi was good.

We had a lovely room on the top floor of the hotel. The staff were really friendly, and allowed us to check in early as we had arrived before check in. Breakfast served daily with a great range. Was really nice to have english speaking hosts as my Icelandic is next to nothing. Thank you for making us feel so... More

Flybus will send you directly there from Keflavik airport. Check in begins at 2 but if you arrive early there's a room where you can leave your luggage. The two of us had a room that was two minute walk away from the main hotel but we had our own bathroom and kitchen, just like a studio flat. Very clean,... More

The location of the guesthouse was excellent (just around the corner of the Hallgrimskirkja) and the breakfast was very good (delicious bread and a range of mueslis). Unfortunately, the bathroom was very tiny and not cleaned sufficiently. The rooms were okay.

The hotel is situated right in the city centre. Apart from that nothing too impressive the girl at the reception could not find our room and we moved around in the cold night quite a bit before we got a room in the next building. The rooms were not service everyday and the breakfast was ok. Of all the places... More

We stayed at the guesthouse in September for a couple nights. It's in a real good location to walk around the city and see the sights. I was traveling around Iceland with my wife and 9 month old son and the staff was very accommodating for our needs. Rooms were clean and kitchen and bathrooms seemed fairly modern. The walls...

I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone who visit Reykjavik. The rooms are clean and very comfortable beds (very much needed after the long days of excursions and late evening of Aurora Hunt :P). Very close to Hallgrímskirkja church. Not even a minute walk. Also visible through the bedroom window. The have a complimentary breakfast and its pretty good. Very... More
