We booked this place after reading all the reviews here and everything was on point. Bedda and Ernesto are truly the best hosts..they are very accommodating. Our flight got in early morning and our room wasn't available yet, but they had space for our luggage and we just hung around the house, ate some breakfast and then went out to lunch and our room was available by early afternoon. They think of all the little things you need to make your stay comfortable. The house is cozy, clean and fun. It's located really close to the city center and the main shopping street and literally around the corner from the Hallgrímskirkja church. Staying at the house allows you to chat with the other guests and they can often give you great tips and feedback on their own activities. There weren't many people when we were there so it almost felt like it was our own home. Having breakfast available and a refrigerator to stock any food you buy from the supermarket was very helpful for us. Everything you need to cook and serve food is in the awesome fully stocked kitchen. Our favorite part of the home was the sauna. After a long day of sightseeing in the cold, there was no better way to end the day than warming up in the sauna. Bedda communicates via email with you very promptly. I realized I didn't have an electrical outlet converter at the last minute and she emailed back a few hours later saying she had them at the house and I could borrow it. We would totally return to this wonderful gem.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This guesthouse is located right in the city centre, surrounded by quirky little shops, bars, cafés and museums. Kárastígur is a residential downtown side street only a few steps away from the main shopping street and the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church. We call it a guesthouse but you could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast with more emphasis on the bed than the breakfast. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home. ... more less
