We stayed twice at Baldursbra in July, once in the Laufasvegur house and once at Tjarnagata. Both houses are well situated in nice, quiet areas near the City centre and were clean and comfortable with good amenities and a good breakfast. The owner, Evelyne, was most welcoming and went out of her way to help us, firstly when we had... More

Considerig this is a hostel, not a hotel, I could not have asked for better. The rooms were cleaned daily with a fresh towel provided. The shared bathroom was also quite clean. Continental breakfast was healthy and of good variety. The owners were kind and even set out breakfast early a few days to accommodate our touring schedule. The place... More

A few reviews of Baldursbra basically describe harassment so it made me think twice before going for it, and I was wary at first. Evelyn and her husband proved themselves were very helpful, kind and accommodating. Rooms are clean and comfortable, WiFi is good and breakfast is tasty.

What a truly wonderful Guesthouse Baldursbra was for me to find. I felt so welcomed by Evelyne and Phillip it was just like being invited into their home to stay. What a lovely couple to meet! Evelyne helped me book tours and gave me helpful advice and great suggestions about what to see and do during my stay. Phillip even... More

Unfortunately this will have to be the first negative review I write about holiday accommodation. My first two nights in one of the outbuilding rooms was absolutely fine, the room a good size and the breakfast decent. On the third day after finishing my breakfast, the husband of the couple who own the guesthouse came into the breakfast room and... More

I stayed at Baldurbra in November. Evelyn, the owner, is always around to help you with anything you need. She called our rental car company and gave us lots of dinner recommendations for our low budget. It's an affordable price to pay for solid lodging. The breakfast is solid and you can definitely eat enough to get ready for a... More

Just stayed at this guesthouse, family with 2 under 10s, shared a family room. The room was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathrooms were also clean and although the guesthouse was busy, sharing was not a problem. The central location was perfect, especially for tired small legs. Breakfast was extremely good. The owner was at times... More

Its look was nothing special, nor was it elegant or ultra-modern. Yet old-world charm filled this place. The ground floor was the common area shared between the hosts and guests. It felt like a usual home. Our room, Lyng, was spacious and laid with wooden floor tiles. It's bright and airy thanks to the windows over two sides of the... More

Evelyn, the owner seemed easy going and was very receptive to all questions and inquiries. She kept the breakfast well stocked with yogurt, cereals, meats, cheese, fruits, hard boiled eggs, orange juice... no hot food, but the breakfast did the job. Her husband did odd jobs and kept to himself, other then a wave and hello , not much was... More
