We only had one night here, but I wished we had another. The location is fantastic, it's not possible to get lost due to the proximity of the big church. Free off street parking! Reasonably priced, clean & great breakfast. I was watching one of the women bake the bread yesterday that I enjoyed for breakfast this morning. They also... More

This hotel was in a perfect location (directly accross from Hallgrimskirkja and a short walk from the main streets), had helpful staff, served a beautiful buffet breakfast every morning including Icelandic breakfast foods, and the rooms were ideal. It wasn't flashy, but the rooms were big for the price range, it was perfectly clean, cosy quiet and warm - and... More

Downtown location, next to church. Free parking, Most attractions within walking distance, Many restaurants nearby, fast food or fine dining. One of the few hotels which has laundry service, though charged. Some rooms have no private bathroom but has common kitchen.

My plane arrived at 5:00 a.m. I booked this guest house for the previous night (Friday), so I could get some sleep for a while and then hit the road on Sunday morning. Check-in was simple. The room was clean and was located up one flight of stairs. Breakfast was being served as we checked in. The breakfast was your... More

Basic guest house style in a fantastic location right opposite the cathedral. Requested to move room due to road noise but second room offered was tiny, so stayed put, noise subsided in the evening. Nice continental breakfast included. Loki restaurant next door is fantastic. Great value for Reykjavik.

If....like us....you're on a self-drive trip round Iceland....and this is your first stop in Reykjavik....you'll be pleased you booked Sunna guesthouse. Reykjavik's not an easy place to navigate round....but the one place you can always find is Hallgrímskirkja....the iconic cathedral....which means you can always find Sunna guesthouse because it's just across the road. The guesthouse is modern, smart and clean.... More

This is very well located for walking to so many attractions. The breakfast is excellent and the shared bathrooms are clean but there could be more of them. The small kitchen in every "suit of rooms" is great for families. I agree with others who noted the high noise level. And the beds were way too soft and lumpy for... More

Yes, the noise from the street can be annoying so take some earplugs. It is worth it because you will be right on the edge of the heart of the city of Reykjavik. On the same block is Cafe Loki with its delicious and unique selection of Icelandic treats. Guesthouse Sunna includes breakfast each morning with great coffee and cheese,... More

This is not a luxury establishment, but it's perfectly nice. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Furnishings were no more or less than needed. Beds were comfortable, but only passably so. The breakfast was great for me. Lots of choices. Fresh fruit, cereals, breads, tomatoes, coffee, etc. They even bake their own bread. The location was perfect for us. Right... More
