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

Basement room, shared bath. Not too clean and no breakfast and over priced for what you get. Too much money for what you get. By the way, if you do visit the magificent west an island, and I highly recommend you do for one day and one day only , DO BRING YOUR CAR over on the ferry so you... More

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

After a very, very long day of traveling to get to Vestmannaeyjar we arrived around 10:30pm and were hoping to check into our room and take our shoes off. Unfortunately, we couldn't be shown to our room right away, as the manager was out, so her husband guided us to a guest area where we watched a movie on mute... More

With apologies to Arny this was a dissappointment. We booked this guesthouse* because the Thorshamar, and Eyjar were both booked (Heimaey is very short on rooms --- for now at least). There is virtually no privacy... we had an 80sq ft. room with a slanted ceiling, and a shower downstairs for 75 Euro! IF YOU ARE OVER 6 FT TALL... More

I stayed for one night in the Guesthouse Arny (Gistiheimilið Árný) upon recommendation of a friend. Its located about 5 minutes walk from the ferry port. The Westman Islands are so small (just 4x7m) that everywhere is close by. The swimming pool was just 100 meters away and the start of the lava fields about 10 mins walk. The accommodation... More
