Blue House is a nice, charming B&B located in a quiet and pleasant neighborhood, about 5 mins driving from the city center. We stayed for one night and enjoyed the clean, modern facilities of the double room downstairs. The common areas were also clean and well maintained. The wifi signal was strong and the breakfast in the morning was a... More

We choose here as our starting point for our Iceland trip. The place is a bit hard to find (I don't like using GPS but I probably should have used one to get here) but is located in a quiet and apparently upscale zone of the city. The B&B is unlike anyone I have seen before: I met no one... More

I was really disappointed after reading all those great reviews. The house was not really clean (dont look behind and under the beds)and the bathroom could have been better cleaned as well (the shower drain was awfull). Unfortunately I did not even meet anybody as I arrived late and left early.

We stayed at this hostel and everything seemed ok. We payed in cash but when we arrived back home we noticed that they had also charged the price for the room on our credit card. We have been claiming to both the hostel and booking.com but after 6 months we haven't got back our money back yet and the hostel... More

We have recently returned from a more than perfect stay at the Blue House B&B, our home in Iceland. Great hospitality, clean comfortable rooms and freshly baked bread in the mornings, what more could you ask for :)

It's comfortable to have a worm shower after we arrived the cold Iceland. This house is easy to find and there is a good postcard for travelers to keepsake,and the map,which is very important to us! So intimate! They have home-baked bread, it's really tasty! Everything is wonderful except the heating was not worm enough.

This is a really special house to stay in. Really comfy and within walking distance to the shore. The whole place was very comfortable. It was very easy to check in. The coffee is great and the tea selection wonderful. Had the best cuppa here

Super great place for a great price. Zeno the host is so helpful and completely plans your trip around iceland including the best hidden spots! Feels like home and food is always accessible. Bread is not made that morning it is frozen and then thawed but great! If we come back to Iceland we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of February. I was unduly worried after a couple of negative reviews. If bed and breakfast doesn't suit then stay in a hotel where everything is the same wherever you are in the world. The blue house was great and had everything we wanted. It was clean and we particularly enjoyed the... More

Already looking to return late October, highly recommend this place. Saw the Northern Lights 5 minutes walk away, absolutely magical. Mountains surrounding the Peninsular and a 5 minute drive to downtown Reykjavik, we loved the location. Only met Zeno once but seems like a lovely bloke, cannot wait to return
