5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Really enjoyed my stay here. The room was lovely, the service was pleasant, and its location in central Reykjavik for a first time visit was a huge plus. It is located steps away from an excursion pick-up stop, a cafe, an eatery and a bar. There is also a small common area on the third floor with a lounge area containing a smart tv and retro arcade game, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge.

Very well positioned off the main shopping street. Easy to find and well positioned for a good selection of restaurants. The rooms are of a sufficient size with comfortable beds. Only criticism would be the sound proofing of the rooms, room 6 where I stayed close to the stairs and you hear every creak in the stairs. Visit Dillons Whisky bar is the solution to get a deep sleep :)

Was clean, location is very central with access to food, shopping and several bus stops right outside your door. Friendly staff WiFi does not work in the room. Had a bath tub with shower but the shower would not work so bad to resort to using the tub. The comedy club next door causes disruption in the late hours of the night- noisy and constant laughter when you’re trying to sleep is not ideal. Perfect for those who prioritise location and are happy with very basic amenities and would prefer to spend their money on the activities of their trip rather than booking a more luxurious place to stay. You get what you pay for. So it’s cheap and cheerful and satisfactory for a quick trip.

I loved the homey feel. Felt welcome and completely safe here. Would stay over and over, especially because the owner is so nice and goes out of his way to help guests.

Best location in downtown as all tour buses pick up or drop off right in front of the guesthouse, many restaurants and bars and shops just there, public bus stops just a few meters away, clean kitchen with fridge, stove, toaster; clean sheets available to pick up, easy check in and check out, prompt communication and responses, good shower head and water pressure and heat. The owner was nice and upgraded my room for the 2nd week for no charge to bigger room with private shower. Quiet building. Guests are mature and quiet too (solo traveler). Not much noice from outside but weekends get noisy because people stay out let including myself so it really didn’t bother me. The new owner/manager is even nicer.
