Beds are good and the room is wide but the kitchen is dirty and the owner speaks a poor english. Shared showers and toilets are a bit old. You don't feel welcomed even if the owners are friendly. As any other rooms in iceland it's noisy. On the other hand the island is marvelous.

I stayed in a private room but the place also has dorms in a different house just across the road from the main house. The island itself is definitely worth a visit for a couple of days with good hiking options. The room was nice but other than that, the accommodation is fairly basic.

Exellent! Good brekfast. Nice people. Nice rooms. Good service and always a smile. Perfect place to go hiking. Vestmannaeyjar is a place you want to go back to visit.Lovely small town. I will go back another year and stay at Arny's place.

We were referred to Arnys Guesthouse by the hotel manager at the Eyjar who did not hold a room for us even though we confirmed several times.So we walked over to "Arny's Guesthouse" not knowing what to expect. When we got there we walked in and Arny met us. She welcomed us and said she didn’t have a room in... More

The hostess was a really nice lady. The room was quite small for 3 beds but still good and the beds were good. There were a kitchen opposite our room so we could make coffe, or you could go to the diningroom were there were free coffe and tea. The breakfast was excellent and when talking with the hostess,asking her... More

Just what we needed to be our base of operations on the Island. Perfect spot to walk to action in the center of town. Able to control our heat and to do laundry. Proprietress was a world class long jumper. Lots of awards from Europe, Iceland and North America. Anry and her daughter were spot on for help

Guesthouse Arny is a little expensive and I'm not sure why more homes in Heimaey haven't been converted to guesthouses given the steady tourist traffic. Arny feels a bit like staying with family - whether thats a good or bad thing is up to you. Some people appreciate the personal service, others might prefer a more standard commodity room. Same...

Arny is a wonderful lady. Very nice and accommodating. She interrupted her church choir practice and walked home to let us in because we called her last minute. The room was comfortable and private and had 4 beds and an extra mattress. She let us sit in her living room and use the internet. I would definitely stay here again,... More
