Great welcoming here at Karlotta an Hugo. Really felt considered and had great conversations throughout my stay at bed and books. Their house is a very cosy traditional Icelandic house. Breakfast was good and Karlotta's bread (homemade yes!) was excellent!

Spent 3 nights with my family at this charming b&b very near from Reykjavik city centre. Very clean and well situated. Our hosts made us so welcome and couldn’t have been more helpful. We had the most amazing time in Iceland all thanks to Hugo & Karlotta whose knowledge was second to none. Will definitely go back.

Very nice place and VERY frienly owners !! We choose it due to short walking distance to the domestic airport as we where traveling to Fossavatn ski maraton in Isafjordur. Good standard on rooms and basic Icelandic breakfast. Newly renovated shower. We did not have much time to spend on either outbound nor return but in all very nice place. About 20-30 min walk and you are down town.

This was our second visit to Iceland and we were really happy to return to Hugo and Karlotta (and Gomez!) for a few nights. As per our previous stay, they were extremely friendly and welcoming. They gave us great tips for our trip, from locations not to miss to great restaurants. Their house is only a short walk from town and is lovely little place to stay. The fact that everything was so informal with them made us want to stay in touch with them straight away for this second trip. It's a great way to start your holiday in unknown territory! Will definitely book there again.

The hosts were really nice. Loved the idea of the books. Place was conveniently located not too far from the center city. My only complaint is that breakfast was subpar and not worth staying here for. That was my main reason for booking wanting a Reykjavik stay with breakfast. All the other places in Iceland during our 12 day journey had great breakfasts and fruit selection. (The apples were the only fruit set out for us and were wrinkly, soft, and old.) I think there are better places you could stay in the city, and I'd pick somewhere else in the future. Just got so spoiled the rest of Iceland with great food.
