Great little bed and breakfast, very new, but done right. Hugo and Carlotta were wonderful hosts and are working to improve the place even more. So I'm not giving it a perfect score yet -- give them a chance to polish one more floor, get one more set of darkening bedroom curtains, etc., all things in planning stages. It was her family house, now modernized a bit and converted to B&B. Full of books, Carlotta's mother was a librarian and she's herself a translator (lots of dictionaries in many languages!). Hugo is French, with excellent English, but don't expect much Icelandic from him. My daughter and I are vigorous walkers, so the fact it is 15 minutes walk from the center of "downtown" Reykjavik didn't bother us at all-- past the beautiful lake, museums and points of interest, and we ate at the best of restaurants downtown, even walking back late at night without any problems. The B&B is in a pretty residential neighborhood near the university on one side and the Reykjavik airport on the other (flight patterns weren't over the house, so no noise bother), very convenient for in-country excursions, and also not far from the bus terminal, for road excursions and bus to international airport at Keflavik. We were very happy there and the price was right!
