This inn has a great location! The price was reasonable and the room was clean. It's a no-frills guesthouse: shard baths, sparse rooms, no breakfast included. There are no phones in the rooms, but the owners gladly took messages for us. The proprietors are incredibly friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is pleasant. We didn't try the all-you-can-eat buffet at the restaurant, but it did seem like a nice place to eat.
Overall this guesthouse was a great bargain considering the location.
NB: they accept cash only.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated right in the center of Reykjavík, in the heart of the old town, our guesthouse offers a unique location to explore this vibrant city. The most important sites, such as the Reykjavík Lake, the main square, the Cathedral, the Parliament, the National Gallery are within a distance of only 20 to 50 meters. This is an area with interesting restaurants, cafés, shops and galleries so you will definitely save yourself the price of a few buses or taxis by staying here. We take great pride in our friendly and personal service. The house is old and has a lot of character, but has been thoroughly renovated in the last years. Downstairs we also have a cosy restaurant where you can have breakfast, meals or just a cup of coffee. In summers, from May to October, we have our famous fish-buffet with a great assortment of delicacies from the clean waters around Iceland. ... more less
