My wife and I were returning from the north coast of Iceland on the day before our flight home. We're crazy about Icelandic horses, and we wanted to stay overnight in or near Mosfellsbaer, a town with excellent horse facilities, breeders, and trainers. Fitjar was exactly what we needed. Making a reservation by email was easy, the reply was prompt,... More

Instead of booking all of our accomodation ahead we decided to try stopping at a couple of places and picking something on the day. The room was small and basic. The bed linen looked a little old and past its best. I felt the price for what we received was very expensive. If it had been cheaper (a lot) I... More

I am sorry to read that you were unhappy with your stay with us . We have recently purchased new bed sheets ,blankets and pillows so all is updated . However we are on the lower price range in our area so we are unsure why you found us expensive . I do believe that we should have had a... More

Fitjar is simple, comfortable and covers the basics if you are looking for something inexpensive around Rekjavik. The place is well run, clean and the crew is helpful, informed and informative. The town itself is not that interesting, but its great if you need a place to crash when arriving or leaving the country. There's a well equipped communal kitchen,... More

We stayed at Fitjar at our last day in Iceland. What an awful experience! The bed and floor was wet/damp (it was in July), and then we complained about it, we got a snotty answer. It was an awful night to sleep in a wet bed. Stay away from this place and find something else, if you don't want your... More

We were horrified to see your negative remarks on line and are not sure how this could have happened. During the time of your stay I was out of the country on business and had a member of staff taken care of all. We are a family friendly run guest house who have a horse stable with 10 horses, rabbits,... More

This was a great place to stay outside of Reykjavik. It was our first night in town after flying in and touring the Golden Circle. We were exhausted and jet-lagged and the Fitjar was a clean guesthouse, quiet atmosphere, and friendly staff. Exactly what we needed for our first night in town. It is off the beaten path and remote,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are offering single and double room. Breakfast up on request. No charge for children under 7 years Fitjar Guesthouse is a family business nearby Reykjavik City. It is located at the banks of Leirvog, one of the better fishing rivers of this area. Imagine that you might see a jumping salmon from your window! If you would like to have country side feeling and still be very close to Reykjavik's tourist- and night life this will be a perfect choice for you. When you arrive to our house you will be welcomed by Karin or Gudjon to whom you also are welcome to order your breakfast, if requested. In a separate kitchen there are cooking and cleaning facilities to your duty. You have about four minutes to nearest service center while we recommend a vehicle as public transportation is not very common. ... more   less
