Isafjordur is the biggest town in the Westfjords, but there is an apparent paucity of choice in places to stay (and no hostel to provide budget alternatives). Based on the few reviews on TA, we stayed two nights at Litla - and it was OK. It is in a nice old part of town and we had a choice between a more spacious room upstairs next to the kitchen and bathroom that served six, or a smaller room downstairs that shared a bathroom and tiny kitchenette with one other room. It was nice to be offered the choice (we arrived early that day) and chose downstairs as hopefully being less exposed to noise from other guests using upstairs bathroom and kitchen, but regretted the choice as it was not a great place to spend any time indoors, and while the kitchenette and bathroom arrangement was fine when we were the only occupants downstairs, it was not comfortable when the other room was occupied (kitchenette opens straight onto the rooms and you had to walk through it to the bathroom next to it), though would work OK for a family or friends occupying both rooms and sharing the facilities. It does however have a separate entrance to the rest of the guesthouse. This was also one of the more expensive places we stayed in 15 nights in Iceland but did not provide a better standard of accommodation than the less expensive places we stayed. Being downstairs we did not see much of the proprietor, but he did answer without fuss our early morning call to fix our electricity which had gone off.
