Very welcoming guesthouse with excellent hosts. First we were worried because we would arrive in the middle of the night, but everything was looked after. Everything turned out to be very uncomplicated. The airport shuttle drop off is just a few houses next to the guesthouse. Less than three minutes walk. The twin room was small but clean and cosy....

The Guesthouse is located very close to the center of Reykjavik and after a 5 minutes walk you are downtown. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the rooms to bathroom ratio is also sufficient. So I can totally recommend this Guesthouse! We had a wonderful time.

Four of us stayed for two nights in the family rooms (1 bedroom and living room with bed/sofa bed / kitchen). Very clean, comfortable and simple accomodation within a few minutes walk of the harbour and city centre. Friendly owners. Would recommend to anyone wanting good value for money. Would stay again.

Spotlessly clean, well looked after by family hosts. Felt 100% at home. Great location, walking distance from everything we needed. Great beds. Will recommend to friends who want a good base in Reykjavik.

We had one of the rooms on the top floor with our kitchen. It had all we needed to cook some meals for ourselves. Although it was more an apartment than a hotel room, the owners took good care and made the beds every day for us. The breakfast provided was not the biggest seen in Iceland but had everything...

We stayed 2 nights in the upstairs 'family apartment' at the Butterfly Guesthouse and really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and complete with compact kitchen, large 'master bedroom' in addition to a sleeper sofa and twin bed located in the alcove next to the kitchen. It slept the 5 of us comfortably. The location was excellent. Near shops,... More

Very centrally located, clean and cozy guesthouse. Charming and flexible owners, who went out of their way to help us out. It got a bohemian feel to it, which is lovely. The room was spacious and clean.

My daughters and I stayed recently for four nights. The owners were very helpful in introducing us to our accomodations. The location could not be better, close to everything, but on a quiet street. We enjoyed talking with the other guests in the common kitchen and dining areas, hearing about other things to do and see together with their experiences... More

We stayed at the Butterfly Guesthouse for 4 nights in May 2014. The location is excellent - just a short walk to the town centre. The rooms have wifi and were clean and comfortable. The communal kitchen worked out perfectly, and parking nearby was no problem. Jon and his wife are very friendly and helpful. We would love to stay... More
