Great location
A great location. Easy to walk to the centre and harbour. Close to everything. Good breakfast room but breakfast not included. We stayed room11, smallest in the building. No space for anything, however, the bed was really comfortable. All other rooms much bigger with basins.

Central location!
Loki and Angela were kind enough to move our reservation for just a single night's stay to the next day FOC upon knowing that our flight to Reykjavik was rescheduled to the next day. Location was also perfect, walking distance to the shopping street, Harpa, Sun Voyager and Hallgrímskirkja.

Great location / parking and comfy bed
Our stay was great. We arrived late and left early in the morning. Didn’t see any staff / it’s a self check in - but very easy. The guesthouse is well located and there is multiple parking options. Only one bathroom per floor. Which can be a little busy at peak time. Overall good stay
Karine, ca1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Guest house
Guest house was good. Beds very comfy. Location was excellent but service was not good when electricity went out in room and other areas which we could not use. Staff said they would deal with it but failed to turn up which is not good. Had to use phone light to pack case in the morning as it was still very dark.

Great stay
This is a nice guesthouse in the heart of Reykjavik just a few minutes walk from the concert hall, downtown shopping, restaurants and the lake. The room was bright with plenty of windows which lent in a lot of natural light. The only thing that was not clear to me was the check in process - When we arrived, there was no lobby. It took us a while to figure out that we had to ring the intercom and be buzzed into the guesthouse. We then had to take our room keys from the board and go to our room. Unfortunately there is no elevator, but the building has a lot of character with hardwood floors. The location is the best part though. I would recommend this guesthouse to others
