Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers stayed at Helga's Guesthouse as a jumping point to our rental of a camper to drive the Ring Road around Iceland. We spent two nights in two downstairs rooms. The rooms were clean and equipped with blackout curtains. We had a shared bathroom with shower and a shared kitchen. The eat... More

The Owner was very clear with dos and donts (which was nice, so there was no confusion), kitchen was... More

I stayed at Guesthouse Helga for 3 days along with my wife. The rooms were spacious, clean and very well maintained. Owner Herman is someone whom I would call the perfectionist who strives to keep things in their own places. He was very friendly and helped us with our planning, voluntarily. The common areas were also professionaly maintained and this... More

A wonderful b&b with beautifully decorated rooms and clean shared bathrooms. Guests are allowed to use the kitchen , where there is an endless supply of beverages. Very friendly owner. The location is perfect as its just a couple of miles from downtown Reykjavik . The owner was well aware of vegetarian restaurants around the city that really helped us... More

The location is a short drive from the city center and the houses around the area (including the guesthouse) are beautiful. The host was very helpful, but if you are an introvert it might take you a little bit to get used to his extrovert personality. The room was cozy, and the bathroom was also comfortable. Door locks can be... More

Stayed here in February this year. Our booking was accidentally cancelled and rebooked to someone else. The owner still managed to give us a room for one night, he also refunded our 2 other nights in cash and drove us to our new hotel the next day. Extremely clean, comfy beds and beautiful scenery.

A great guesthouse and a warm welcome. Herman took great care to advise us for our excursions, extremely hospitable and helpful. The guesthouse was very comfortable, clean, tidy and well presented. All the mod cons that you would expect from a guesthouse plus more. Location is a few km from city centre but fine to walk or there are regular... More

The room was large , really clean and comfortable. The hole house was spotless with a newly renovated feel. The owner was super nice and welcoming, especially as we turned up nearly 2 hours late. The house was the perfect location for heading to the airport the next morning but still close enough to pop back into Reykjavik, It was... More

Found in a quiet residential area - make sure you have read the address carefully as the street name has very similar ones elsewhere. Welcomed by the owner who was most affable who took us to the side of the house to the ground floor. Shoes off at the door as is the custom into a corridor off of which... More

Absolutely excellent and friendly welcome from the owner who is extremely helpful. A real recommendation. Room with shared facilities, e.g. a kitchen. Located a little out of the center, but transport facilities are quite near.
