This place is great.
It is certainly one of the cleanest guesthouses I've ever stayed in. My room was massive and air conditioned, the sheets, the bed, towels, blankets-- everything was well kept, crisp and clean. The location is perfect; the balcony overlooking the river is quite nice as well.
The owner is a very pleasant fellow; we talked briefly about Morgan Freeman, non-biological "life", transhumanism, and the importance in Iceland of ensuring that you're not related to the person with whom you're about to go home. He's also apparently the only guy in town with a scanner.
Just about the only complaint I have-- and it really is a small one-- concerns the lack of a smaller bedside lamp in my room; I'm just not a fan of overhead fluorescent lighting; given the choice between it or nothing, I'd almost rather just sit in the dark. I realize that this is my own hangup, it's a problem easily remedied and it could have just been my room.
All in all, I highly recommend River One Residence. I would certainly stay there again.
