The hosts were very friendly and spent their time providing tips and recommending places to go even outside of Reykjavik. Breakfast was excellent! I would say this is the best breakfast during my trip!

A wonderful option in Reykjavik`s traditional area. It is very central and consists of 3 small old houses of wood/tin painted in bright colours. The rooms are smallish, but very personal and cosy. The apartments are suppose to have kitchen and small sittingrooms as well. We had to share bathroom with other guests, but this small "inconvenience" is worth it.... More

We have been staying three nights in Island and at Forsæla. Island is an exciting place to discover and with experienced help from Hlin we toured this place with its uniq landscape. Hlin answered all our question about everything from: “What are all the horses for” to “what road should we to take to Fontana”. Forsæla was a good place... More

Hlin and Siggi are lovely hosts. The guest house is cozy and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was great. I felt as if I had made a friend in Hlin. When I return to Iceland, I hope to be able to stay here again.

As my title suggests, we had an amazing time at Forsaela. From long before our summer 2014 arrival, Hlin was incredibly patient with me over email (a LOT of email) as we planned our stay, from helping us decide which apartment to stay in to actually providing us with a wonderful itinerary for the 3-day driving trip we took after...

What a lovely place! When my non-Icelandic bus driver couldn't find Forsaela Apartments at first, Hlin stood in the middle of the road at 1:30 am to wave him down. The place is pretty and close to the middle of town, the breakfasts are great, the water is hot, but best of all Hlin is a fount of information, and... More

Dear friend of Forsaela. Thank you for a wonderful review. It cheers me up to think about our conversations during breakfast, your keen interest and positive spirit and the thoughtfulness of leaving a woollen scarf for other guests to use. I'll be looking forward to welcome the Flying Chef again to Forsaela. More

From the moment we arrived Hlin and Siggi made us feel at home in their house. They invited us in like we were special guests and part of their family. The house was clean, comfortable, cozy home to stay in. Hlin and Siggi helped us with organizing tours, saved us from missing one that forgot us, and had great recommendations... More

My husband and I stayed with Hiln and Siggi last week. Hiln and I had been in communication before we left the US for Reykjavik. She was most helpful not only in securing our accommodation, but is a wealth of information about travel in Iceland. As we approached Forsaela from the airport, Hiln was waiting at the curb to ensure... More

Hlin and Siggi the owners could not have been more kind or helpful and went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. It really was as if we were their own personal guests in their house.

My niece and nephew (around 20 years old) and I stayed for three nights in the Forsaela self-catering Cottage. We received a very warm welcome from Hlin, the owner, even though she had had to wait up for us until our midnight arrival. Although self-catering, Hlin had gladly volunteered to stock the Cottage's fridge with basic breakfast items since we... More
