The Lily Guesthouse is a small, a bit off the beaten path place operated by a very friendly couple. The rooms are simple and only a couple have bathrooms in the rooms but the community bathrooms and showers are spotless. We spent 4 night here (me and two teenage girls) and we all had a blast. Breakfast each morning was...

My nephew, friend and I stayed at Guesthouse Lily for 9 nights and we had a great time here. Lily and her husband are the most accommodating hosts, we arrived on an early flight and Lily was up early to meet us. She helped with directions, put some postcards in the mail for us, loaned me a fan for my...

Our first night in Iceland was spent here, and we loved it! Our room was very clean and we loved the decor. The balcony was lovely as well. Our refrigerator ended up slightly leaking water onto the floor, but the staff immediately came and helped and fixed the problem. We love this place and we will return when we come...

I booked this place without knowing how far it was from 101 Reykjavik. It's not in the tourist district, but you can walk down the street and take the 1 bus. This is a nice quiet guesthouse; no television. Lily is an older woman who reminds me of my mother. At an age when many people would be retired and...

We ended up here by accident but it is a great place super clean and the owner is lovely taking care over everything. It is in quite a good location and breakfast is a friendly affair everyone sitting around chatting the owner engenders a warm friendly atmosphere and I would highly recommended it.

Clean, new feeling, comfortable bed and dark enough curtains (for summer sun!) Staff was welcoming and provided a full, cold breakfast daily. Price was appropriate for the season, not insanely high. Showers (shared) were clean and well maintained with shampoo offered. Parking can be tough but surrounding businesses share their spaces with the guesthouse (overnight).

Spent 2 nights there during a business visit. The owners were very helpful and the rooms are quiet. Wi-Fi connection is quite good, had no problems with it. The owners also helped us book our return transport to airport.

this guesthouse is clean and comfortable. The proprietor is friendly and helpful. The breakfast provided is excellent. The only downside was the lack of ensuite facilities. The beds are exceptionally comfortable.

We had a whirlwind trip to Iceland and chose this hotel for price and location. Our flight arrived early in the morning but they allowed us to check in by 9am and then we had the day to explore. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located. We booked the (I think) only room with a private bathroom and it...

We based ourselves here for four nights. It turned out to be a good choice for staying in Reykjavik. Reasonably priced at approximately $65 per night, the rooms are simple but pleasant. And Lilly and her husband are very personable and friendly. The bus stop that takes you into Reykjavik is a ways away and can be a challenge in...
