I stayed in a single room with shared facilities, This guesthouse seemed to operate rooms locating in a few nearby buildings, of which I stayed in one of them. The main activities of reception and breakfast was in the main premise. I stayed in an apartment which was shared by 4 rooms. The guests at that time were very decent... More

Excellent location right near Hallgrimskirkja and within 5 minutes walking from Laugavegur, the main shopping/tourist street. Also within walking distance from the Flybus station, so there's no need to pay the extra 600 kronur to get dropped off at the guesthouse. The family who owns Aurora are friendly and helpful, and makes sure you are enjoying your stay. My boyfriend... More

I have just read a comment saying the Aurora would not give a refund or change dates after someones Mother has dies and I just had to add my experience. Our Father died a couple of weeks a go and we only had the funeral last week and felt that a holiday in Iceland wasn't what we wanted just now.... More

I had a reservation, I attempted to change my reservation from the original dates and it was confirmed by the guesthouse that this would be allowed, I just had to email booking.com. I emailed booking.com to change the dates, and they said they needed to verify that it would be ok with the guesthouse. I showed up at the hotel... More

We stayed here one month ago and found everything totally acceptable. Water hot and plentiful, pressure good, breakfasts fine, rooms, including shared bathrooms clean,quiet on the 2nd and 3rd floor, and best of all if you get turned around on the streets going up to the Guesthouse, just look up and you'll see Hallgrimskirkj at the top of the hill....

This guesthouse owns a series of apartments within a block of the main office. I cannot speak for the other properties but our room had been created by dividing a larger room with a temporary wall that moved a few inches when you leaned on it. Since the walls were not well insulated, you could hear every word anyone in... More

Really good value, well located, clean and convenient. Really good people who are helful and accommodating. Great location, just 10 minutes walk from the Bus Terminal, central and handy for downtown attractions, and also convenient for the Domestic Airport. Simple but nice breakfast with lovely (warm) bread. Thank you Siggi & team!

The room was clean and the location is good so I have no major complaint. The service is okay but not outstanding and the breakfast was only average. Still quite pricey for what we got; hence my average rating. Won't probably go back or recommend

We stayed here for 3 nights, in a family room with breakfast included. The location was excellent, only 5mins from main shopping street full of bars and restaurants. The famous church is just around the corner and the bus station is 10minute walk. The guesthouse staff were welcoming and friendly, and the rooms were warm and comfortable. The black out... More

Cozy house right in the middle of the city. Walking distance to everything we needed. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was great - assorted cheese, meat, fruits, cereals, granolas, really fresh breads and juice and coffee. We would stay here again!
