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

Even though this apartment house is just one block off of the main street of Reykjavik, it is on a very quiet block where the noise of the city doesn't intrude. Conveniently located if you want to join in the nightlife, then quiet when you want to sleep -- perfect! The apartments are super cute. Compact European style where every... More

We stayed at a hotel during our first stay in Reykjavik but chose Forsaela apartments for the second stay and were delighted with our choice. The apartments (our family had one across the hall from my sister's family) were spotlessly clean, artfully decorated, and thoughtfully stocked with books, light blocking shades, kitchenware, grocery staples, and the beds - even the...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week when we visited Reykjavik in August. The owner Hlin was wonderful - really nice, helpful and accommodating. She stayed up to greet us when we arrived at 1am and provided us with a delicious breakfast spread (literally, anything you could want was there!) the next morning even though we came in... More

We stayed in the little apartment that Forsaela Offers and then on our return trip we stayed in the main house at the B&B. Both experiences were great! The owner Hlin, was lovely! She was very attentive and helpful. She really made us feel at home. The apartment was well furnished and equipped with a washing machine, full kitchen, living... More

My husband and I stayed in the apartment house at Forsaela for the duration of our week long stay in Reykjavik. Hiln and Siggi were exceptional hosts. The apartment we stayed in was a one bedroom (sleeping loft style) with a kitchen and living space. It was clean and thoughtfully decorated. It was also in a great location as it... More

We stayed in a two room apartment with a sleeping loft which was great for two adults and one four year old. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed and the supermarket was very close. Very cozy place in the older parts of Reykjavik, it was a great experience lying in bed listening to the rain fall on... More

Just returned from a wonderful break in Iceland. Our stay at the Apartmenthouse was fantastic. Forsaela is a real gem and only a few minutes walk from the main shopping street and restaurants in downtown Reykjavik. Hlin and Siggi are wonderful hosts and their passion for Iceland and its heritage shines through in everything they are doing at Forsaela. If... More

We were a group of 10 divers spending 5 days in the three appartements and the little house. Hlin has been greeting us in her lovley and kind manner, and we felt at home right away. She did everything to make us happy: Starting with a great breakfast in the cosy living room up to washing some fishy smelling clothes.... More

Your adventurous spirit, professionality and organisation of every detail impressed me and I was happy to be able to assist about some little things. During your stay you visited many different driving spots, the extraordinary Silfra, lake... More

This was an excellent choice for father and daughter travelling together. For almost a week we had a house in the very city center of Reykjavik. That is possible only in Iceland! The family was extremely nice and helpful. They took care of all our needs, helped to rent a car or arrange a trip to Blue Lagoon in five... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience of staying with us at our B&B this summer.
