Hugo and Karlotta were the perfect hosts and welcomed us in their lovely home. They shared their local knowledge of bars, restaurants and places to see which made our brief holiday all the more enjoyable. The house is an easy walk into the city centre and harbour district. Our favourite route was along the shoreline. On our one excursion we...

Very friendly and welcoming! The location is walkable to the city center and in a nice neighborhood. The owners were great and gave us a map, directions, and even left over camping supplies from previous guests before we started out on the Ring Road. Definitely would recommend.

My son and I stayed at Bed and Books on our recent trip to Iceland. We could not have chosen a better place. We fell in love with Iceland and this was in no small part due to the hospitality of Hugo and Karlotta. The location was fab - just a shortish walk into the city centre - just right....

We stayed for one night whilst stopping in Reykjavik. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They made this place a wonderful location to stay. Room was comfortable and warm. Breakfast was a welcomed addition. Can't stress enough how lovely the owners were and how much of an impression upon us this made.

While hotels in Reykjavik can be expensive, Bed and Books is just a 20 minute walk from the city centre and is a great price. The walk through the university is nice and safe, even late at night. The owners were so friendly and helpful for the one night we were there and even let us use the shower the...

“As it is an older home, the floorboards in the washroom might disturb you. I didn't notice them at all and I was right beside the washroom. Request a room away from the bathroom if you tend to be a light sleeper.”
