Stayed here for technically 2 nights but was more like 27 hours. I prebooked the Flybus+ which dropped me right outside the door. I had pre-warned the Guesthouse I would be arriving late and there was someone waiting for me to check me in. No issues and the welcome was very friendly. The room itself was basic but perfectly acceptable.... More

I stayed at the Guesthouse Borgartun at both ends of my visit to Iceland. The outside is a rather cold looking concrete block building that also houses offices. It is not a warm or terribly welcoming exterior but don't let that worry you. Once inside and then on to the third floor where the reception area is located, we could... More

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at Guesthouse Borgartun. The guesthouse was very clean, quiet, comfortable and provided very good relaxed cold buffet breakfast. Plenty of hot water and powerful shower as you would expect for Geothermal powered country. Guesthouse is very close to the sea front, swimming pool and a short walk from the old town... More

Located on the third floor of what looks like an office block the ground floor entrance references only the travel agent "Gudmundur Jonasson" - don't be put off! Take lIft to the third floor and reception via the breakfast room. Immediately impressed wth overall cleanliness Budget wise this is below what you'd pay at a Travel Lodge and is generally... More

The guesthouse is in a very uninspiring office block but once inside is very cosy. The rooms are adequate in size and very warm, very important in December. The bathrooms are very small but have hot water, a nice shower, soap provided and a hairdryer. The beds were comfy even though the pillows were not very firm! The breakfast buffet... More

I have just had another enjoyable & relaxing stay at Guesthouse Borgartun in Reykjavik. It is an ideal base whatever your activity. Rooms are well maintained & very clean with en suite & tv + radio alarm. Breakfast is varied & plentiful with endless coffee. The manager is very kind & pleasant. She assisted me greatly.

When I looked for hotels in Reykjavik I noticed that they were not cheap... This one was not too expensive (we payed 110 euros for twin for one night) and it had free parking space, free wi-fi and it included good breakfast. Rooms were clean and it took us some 20 minutes to walk into downtown of Reykjavik. There is... More

I write this review because the previous comments were deciding factors for us to stay at this hotel. Clean, quiet place, especially if you get the room facing the other buildings. On our second stay we got the somewhat noisier room facing the road and farther the ocean. On the second arrival we got to the place after midnight. The... More

The rooms are located on the upper floors of a drab office building, approximately a 25 minute walk from the center of town. The wifi did not always work in the room, but the signal was fine in the dining area. Rooms have antiquated electrical outlets which, according to what I was told, were standard in the 1970s. Today you... More

One of the better guesthouses in Reykjavik, when you get past the fact that it is an office block and tourist agency. 24 hr service which is great and leaving at 3.45 the night manager had prepared a full breakfast for 3am - most welcoming. But lots of guests arrive and leave throughout the night so it can become quite... More
