We didn't expect much when we pulled up to the guesthouse as it's not much to look at from the outside but we were pleasantly surprised. The manager is very friendly and let us check in early. Our room was a decent size and nice and clean, the beds were very comfortable and the view of the water and mountains... More

The location of this guesthouse is not in the center of city,but walkable to the city (20 minutes walk). Hotel was in an old building (5 floor), and the room is located at upper floor as the first and second floor are travel office. Reception is located at third floor inside the guesthouse restaurant. Rooms are big but with simple... More

We stayed on both the 3rd and 4th floors. The 4th floor rooms are larger and lighter compared to the smaller 3rd.The reception is located on the 3rd floor which we found after a little looking. The walk into town is around 30 minutes however there are shuttle buses. Highlight was seeing the Northern lights late through the large windows... More

We had no choice over our base as all other options with Newmarket Holidays were fully booked and we were agreeably surprised by the guesthouse. Our room was warm and spacious with a sea and mountain view and the hot water supply was endless (albeit with the sulphur smell that we had been warned about). Our two complaints about the... More

I was really pleased to stay at the guesthouse during a tour of Iceland. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. The hostess was lovely and accommodating. She answered all of my questions in perfect English and was patient while I tried to practice some Icelandic! The rooms are decent sized and comfortable. The heating and hot water are... More

Suited our needs perfectly and the manager was excellent and booked us our taxi and tours. Basic room and breakfast but perfectly clean and welcoming. Tea and coffee making facilities in communal areas. We had great views over mountains from our room. Excellent all round. Thank you

The hotel is located 15 minutes (walking distance) from the city centre. It was a bit hard to find as it is on top of some office rooms. The staff was helpful and friendly, explained everything. The rooms were basic but clean, breakfast buffet much better than expected. We were happy there, going back soon :)

Read reviews before travelling so I knew what to expect. Lift up to reception on floor 3 took 4 with cases. Room basic but spotless and warm, bed very comfortable. Breakfast was a small selection of continental buffet but plentiful and kept us going until lunch-time. Out of town so 4 in a taxi 2,000 ISK each way and the... More

Just returned from spending a few nights in Reykjavik. Don't expect any frills at this guesthouse but I would recommend it if you are on a budget. Room was basic but very clean; the most comfy bed I've had in a hotel in a long time; breakfast was a small selection of cereal, plain yoghurt, small amount of cut fresh... More
