The moment we've arrived at the guesthouse, we parked out car inside their lot and went inside to check in. After 20 minutes, when we got back to the car, our bags had been stolen. Someone opened the car and took them. The staff did nothing to assist us: they did not help us on our contact with the police... More

The location is good -- on a quiet residential street just 10 minutes' walk or less from central Reykjavik -- but I had a few issues that would make me think twice about staying here again, especially at US $150 for a double. I know accommodations in Reykjavik are pricey, and this is a step up from a hostel (private... More

We stayed at the overflow lodging (open during the summer) not the building pictured which was the former U.S. consulate. The breakfast was ample and left over fruit was available in the sitting room. Both accommodations are centrally located within easy walking distance to the BSI Bus Terminal and every downtown attraction. Evelyn was helpful and responsive. On our return... More

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

The family were always polite and gracious. I know their dog... 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
