A nice guesthouse with good value, in comparisson with other lodgingin the neighbourhood. Just a walk away from the city centre. Good breakfast and a warm and friendly welcome. No luxury, but comfortable beds and very neat and tidy.

The staff was... More

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
