Excellent breakfast/rooms/price All round package was superb.
Felt like a part of their part of the world and part of the family no problems at all.
This small guest house is a little gem for travelers who don't mind walking about a mile to the city center. It is well run (nice staff), very clean with a basic breakfast. For people traveling by bus on the island (e.g. backpackers) this place is very close to the central BSI bus station (where the airport FlyBus and Reykjavik Excursions arrive/depart). The guest house is also walking distance from the shopping mall (Kringlan). The rooms are basic and have a sink. Bathrooms are shared for some rooms, but since the guest house is small the relative wait is not long. Overall a great value in the center of Reyjavik. A
You can only connect to WiFi in the lobby/dining area and the signal does not extend to the rooms upstairs. This could be improved...
The touch of service Internet service (though there were some hiccups on my second day) Serene location
No TV around A bit difficult to locate
Thorsteinn & Harpa were very warm and friendly hosts! Always available for tips and suggestions. I thoroughly enjoyed my quiet, cozy, little room #309 with a window view of the cathedral. Breakfast was basic but tasty and the internet access was fast and flawless! I liked how it was a no-shoes house, therefore I recommend slippers or thick socks and the bathrooms were large and spacious. Plus a big bonus is that the Grey Line Tour Bus company picks-up/drops-off directly at Alba, which makes things perfect for travellers, without a car, like myself. Max. 15 minute walk to the main cathedral and centre of town! Would gladly book again!
The bathroom floors where not often the cleanest, but for that the showers worked well! If you cannot walk long distances, I would perhaps recommend a different guest house, since it does take about 15 minutes to walk into town. (However, It is easy walking, paths etc.) Other than that I have really no complaints!
The friendliest staff, warm welcome, great breakfast and very comfy beds
very nice breakfast included
close to a road, like everything in busy reykjavik...
We loved our stay here and wished we would have booked more than one night. Breakfast was wonderful and included in the room rate. For being so close to the city, this was a VERY affordable option. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The wifi worked great and the room was even better than we expected! When we go back to Iceland, we will most definitely stay here again.
It would have been nice to have access to a kitchen, but everything else was incredible!
We arrived very late into Iceland. The owner greeted us and quickly checked us in so we could sleep. The beds were comfortable and the room was very quiet so we could sleep in and not hear other guests. The owner was helpful with. Ideas if we asked.
Staff and abundant breakfast (included). Vicinity to the bus terminal.
The city is expensive and this is a decent budget option. There is free parking. It's easily walkable to the centre, breakfast was fresh and nicely served, wifi generally worked, the room we had was nice with an L-shape - perfect for changing behind and it is a good option as long as you don't mind sharing one bathroom with about 5 other rooms.
Staff were not especially friendly and there was just one toilet for all the rooms - meaning a half-hour or more wait for the toilet at peak times as there was also a shower in that room too. There was apparently a toilet downstairs too, but this wasn't explained until I was leaving, and nobody else knew either, so the queues were long for the bathroom.
No WiFi coverage in room downstairs
Location and price are good. Breakfast is good. Comfortable bed. Sink in room.
It is not too clean, especially the bathroom. Small rooms. Breakfast is ok.
The guest house has a very warm & welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast is served in a beautiful winter garden. The hosts also offer to make sandwiches / tea or coffee to take on tours. The rooms are basic, but have everything you need. Big plus is that there are washbasins in all rooms, so less queues at the bathrooms :-) Shared facillities are 1 toilet, 1 shower and 2 bathrooms with both. The guest house is located in a residential area, nearby you can find a small supermarket & the mini market of a gas station. 10 min walk to Perlan, some 15 mins to the city center. Parking spots available, the nearest bus stop is a 3 min walk away.
Only 20 mins walk to the centre of Reykjavik. Staff were brilliant and provided a great and friendly service. My stay was very comfortable. I will come back to this location again. It was clean, safe, close to the city centre and felt very safe.
Wifi was not the best but was better than most places in Iceland. It did not cause me any problems ---it just was not as good as it could be compared to the UK
Friendly owner, clean room with very comfortable bed, good breakfast, free Wi-Fi.
Fantastic little place. The owners were very polite and friendly to us. Breakfast was amazing given the price. Beds were very comfortable and the place was quiet and clean.
A little way out of town but still quite walkable.
It was quiet and they let us have our room early which was fantastic. Location was good. Nice breakfast.
All was good but a few suggestions would be to have some local information available e.g where the local shops are, how to get into town etc. Access to a kettle but the hosts were very accommodating, I just didn't like to ask all the time. The shower could have been a bit cleaner and also have a shower mat. The rest was great.
friendly, relaxed and very helpful hosts- gave us useful advice on getting around in Iceland (on car rental, even booked us a tour, so we didn't have to look for travel agency ourselves).
- good value for money - the owner of the guesthouse was very nice waiting for me until late in the night - very good breakfest - nice room with good heating
- a bit complicated way to centre through a footbridge over a big road - shared bathroom could be cleaner
Amazing. I would recommend to everyone (solo travelers, groups of friends, family) so clean and comfortable, the staff was amazing (always left the delicious breakfast out until they knew that everyone had eatten)!
Friendly owners, good location and nice breakfast.
- nice hosts - fair deal - breakfast - 10 minutes walk into city
different rooms / some of them quite small BUT still a really fair deal
Lovely host! Helpful, friendly, welcoming, cute host! Would like to visit and stay there again :)!
Honestly, nothing at all!
