A fun experience and well located for the large swimming pool and sculpture galleries. It is about 30 mins stroll to the centre, but this can either take in the coastal path (with an excellent sculpture of a viking boat) or via two of the main galleries (1 ticket covers these two, plus third location in the centre). The price... More

What a great day in Reykjavic! Guesthouse Bina is a very nice local inn that's convenient to the city center. Jakobina will see that you have everything you need and the price is a lot less than most hotels. This privately run guesthouse is perfect for a solo traveler or a family together. I'll definitely will be back soon!

The rooms are on the third floor so it´s not for people whith trouble climbing stairs. The room was good and so were the beds. Quiet. Free Wi-Fi, a bit slow. No common areas. The hostess vas a very nice lady and helped with a foodproblem we had. So hopitallity was high. Parking outside on the street no problem.

What a nice place to stay. Bina was just lovely and we miss her already. The price was very good, the cheapest I've researched in Reykjavik. Her beds are the comfiest we slept on during our trip to Europe and my husband and I still brig it up ("remember how comfy Bina's bed were?"). She let us use her phone... More

I booked Bina directly via phone and managed to get an excellent sleeping bag accommodation for 4000 ISK - an extremely competitive price compared to the much pricier City Youth Hostel next door. Whereas at my first stage I shared the room with two friends, Bina was as gracious as to give me a fantastic double room with private bath... More

I recommend guesthouse Bina for anyone looking for budget accommodation in Reykjavik. This is a B&B type establishment in a modern apartment building in a pleasant suburb of the town. My room was very small, but perfectly adequate for my needs (as I spent a lot of time out on excursions and visiting the centre). I supplied my own sleeping... More

Bina Guest house is located close to the thermal pools in Reykjavik. The owner of the hotel is nice, but staying there will not remember well. In the room, there were no facilities, no TV and a shared bathroom with only hosts. You can not use the kitchen, which was close to my room. Allowed me only to make tea... More

Stayed for four days in total, two at the beginning of our holiday and one at the end. A great base from which to see all of Reykjavik, short distance from tourist info and bus stops, great value for money compared to other guesthouses in the area and it is run by a friendly, warm and welcoming lady. Much recommended...

Given how expensive hotels in Reykjavik are, it was a relief to find this cheaper option online after much hunting, and I would 100% recommend it. Although it is about 25 minutes walk to the city centre, the walk itself, along the beautiful seafront with the mountainous backdrop, was wonderful every time, and gave a view most tourists would not...
