“This is not an inn or a hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

I wrote a negative review of this place last summer, as did another writer and both were removed. This is not an inn, nor a hotel. It has no on site facilities as are implied by the photos. It is a private house with a few small rooms and some common rooms. The outside is unkempt and the inside was messy and unpleasant. The hostels in town are FAR better. We left as soon as we saw what it was really like. I have stayed in lots of places all over the world and I found this unnerving and weird. Our flight was delayed and we were v late but the rooms were not ready on arrival. I don;t understand where the positive reviews are coming from. We loved everyhing about Iceland except this place.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2010

I regretted that I would stay for only 4 nights at Three Peaks Inn once I got there in Aug 2010. It is located in Mosfellsbaer, a community to the east of Reykjavik city center. The location is not the most "convenient" in the conventional sense that one needs to take bus no. 15 from the city to Mosfellsbaer, but for a nature lover, Three Peaks Inn is a great choice for hiking/jogging in the nearby mountains (three peaks), along the coast or the river. Besides, supermarket, bank, bakery, pools etc. are within walking-distance. The owner/manager is very friendly. The place is homy and comfortable with all the essentials, kitchen, laundry, wireless, for free. Anyway, if you want to go on a tour, the tour company will pick you up from any hotel/hostel for free. So it does not make any difference wherever you stay in the Iceland.

Excellent accommodation situated in a quiet area, close to birdwatching and country walks. A short walk to two supermarkets, fresh local fish shop, bakers and a number of takeaways. Very comfortable accommodation, plenty of hot water, comfy beds, with free Internet and a well equipped kitchen.
Bus stop to city center 5 mins. walk away but must have the correct money as no change is given 280 kr one way. The Reykjavik visitor card is well worth getting for free bus travel, museums, swimming pools, zoo.
