This was our only room option for the New Year Festival package as we booked very late paying overall a pretty high price for the entire deal. So my comments must be viewed against this background and the fact that we had a tremendous time during our 4 day visit and we will go again to Iceland but stay elsewhere.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in November and it didn't disappoint. As everyone mentions the building is basically an office block with a resident travel agent but ignoring that fact the place offers excellent and safe accommodation. Yes it's a good walk along the scenic sea front to the centre of Reykjavik but the bus network is excellent and all... More

We can't recommend this guesthouse highly enough! Don't be put off by the distance from the city center; the bus connections are good, the tour companies will pick you up at your hotel anyway, and you'll save a lot of money. But the best part was the incredible service we got from the owner! During our five night stay, she... More

I stayed here twice during a trip- on my arrival to iceland and on my final night before returning to the UK. It is a family-run B&B which is clean, has all the basics provided (hairdryers, radio alarm clock, TV in the room and tea/ coffee-making facilities in the communal areas). Wifi is also available as it is in most... More

Although it is slightly away from the main downtown centre of Reykjavik, this guesthouse is a good option if you are looking for great value for money. The rooms are fairly basic and functional, but comfortable, spotlessly clean and well maintained - Wi-Fi is fast and free too. A continental breakfast with cereals, fruit, local breads, cheese, cold cuts and... More

The first thing to be grateful for is that the Flybus Plus (the shuttle from Keflavik Airport) drops you off outside the front door and then collects you from the Guesthouse for the shuttle back. The second thing to be grateful for is that the hosts were friendly and very helpful - they were always very happy to prepare packed... More

who have travelled extensively around Europe on short city breaks for the last 10 years. Don't let the appearance put you off, fairly functional rooms, superb bathroom and shower facilities and a lovely hearty selection for breakfast. For the price and absolute bargain. Would recommend to anyone. Free wifi and a pc in the lounge just another bunus.

Would have been a 10/10 but the building desperately needs some double glazing. Unfortunately we had 2 nights of disturbed sleep , firstly the local boy racers re enacting fast and furious along the drag strip roads and then on the second night woken by driving rain against the windows. If you are a sound sleeper don't let it put... More

Strange entry as it looks like an office building, but we entered a cozy reception area at 8:30 in the morning and were offered coffee and breakfast by the friendly staff even though we couldn't check in. This was such a generous gesture after our overnight flight into Iceland, and we were so so grateful. We were invited to leave... More
