When we booked this Guesthouse, we were not sure we booked the best place in regards to location and standard of accommodation. However, we were wrong! We arrived late at night, and the owner waited up to greet us. We were given a very spacious room,which was clean and quiet. We had shared amenities which I was worried about, but... More

When we arrived, we were really tired from the trip, but the staff was very friendly and welcoming so we immediately felt better. The rooms were simple and tidy. We weren't used to shared bathrooms, but everything worked out fine. The breakfast was wonderful- fresh warm bread, selection of meats, cheese, fruits and nuts, cereal, juices, joghurt. The staff was... More

We had a very good stay in this lovely guest house in Reykjavik. Is about 20 minutes walking from the city centre, but it has got a car park and is perfectly connected to the buses so in use in Iceland to organize the tours. The House is perfectly clean and welcoming. The host careful and available. The breakfast was... More

The room at first floor was simple but clean and enough agreable. The common bathroom was ok . The house is not in the city center but at 20 min walking distance. The breakfast was simple but the food enough. The staff was extremly kind and helpfull. Wi-Fi free. A good compromise quality/price

I do not live in alba guesthouse but lived nearby in a residential apartment. I hired a tour bus that would only pick me up at alba guesthouse. As it was very cold outside around subzero degrees, I thought I could try waiting in the lobby of alba guesthouse while waiting for the bus. I rang the doorbell and was... More

I spent 2 nights at Alba Guesthouse. My boyfriend and I chose a double bedroom, which was very clean and cosy. The breakfast is very good, especially because of the excellent freshly baked bread. The guesthouse is located 15 mins walking from the center of Reykjavik and it is not a big deal crossing the highway, as you have a... More
