This truly is one of the most fun, creative guesthouses I have stayed at. Many thanks to Yuki and Andi for such a great experience. From the minute I arrived until I left, I have a wonderful mix of friendly camaraderie and time for solitude. I was surrounded by excellent querky artwork from a local woodsman, special coffee served with...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I've been traveling quite a lot in many different countries and never have I seen a place like this one. Andi and Yuki did an amazing job making this place warm and welcoming. The design of both outside and inside the place is amazing, full of wood arts (carving, painting, sculpture, etc.), reuising materials like pallets and cable spools, and...

Booked here based on the excellent reviews. I would normally not book a room with a shared bathroom. Was not disappointed. Extremely friendly hosts, beautifully quirky facilities, excellent location, very clean and comfy. Would definitely stay here again. Very good value for money.

My husband and I stayed the last night of our trip, before heading to the airport. We had a great time, and really enjoyed both the guesthouse and Andi and Yuki.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guesthouse 1×6 is a unique family-run boutique bed&breakfast designed and initially created by a local artist, located in the old cultural part of the town of Keflavik – Iceland, overlooking the ocean and surrounded by museums, restaurants and much more! Yukiyo and Andi – a binational couple from Japan and Switzerland – are now owning and running Guesthouse 1×6. They recently moved to Iceland because they truly love this stunning country. Our little gem has just received the 2016 Traveller’s Choice Award from TripAdvisor and we are proud to be No.3 of all guesthouses in Iceland and No. 1 in Keflavik. Free transfers are available upon request from/to Keflavik Airport and an earlybird breakfast is served from 04:30am for all flights that are leaving after 07:00am. Please note that if your flight is leaving earlier, you may want to order a takeaway breakfast. We are looking very much forward to welcoming you in our gem. Guesthouse 1×6 is a perfect base if you want to see Iceland on day trips and stay in paradise. Here are some suggestions for easy day trips: – Visit the Blue Lagoon geothermal bath (don’t forget to pre book your entry ticket online!) – Explore the beauty of Reykjanes peninsula with geothermal areas and beautiful Lake Kleifarvatn – Drive the Golden Circle Tour – see the stunning waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss in the south of Iceland – go shopping in quirky Reykjavik city Our beautiful cosy rooms ... Ecological Guesthouse 1×6 was created by local artist Daniel Hjortur Sigmundsson, who creates out of what he has in his hands at any given time, reusing, recycling, creating an alternative to whatever is inside the box, refined and polished. His aim was to to make a difference in creating an environment that gives people the feeling of love, care, warmth and that we should always put an effort to our everyday life, it is the now that matters. Attention to detail is paramount and the wellbeing of our guests ensured by the singular choice of building material, 1×6 is the size in inches of the timber used to create the unique interior. You are invited to enjoy the one of a kind thermal bath in the garden with a temperature of around 40° Celsius. Along with even more details and services of the owners as well as a highly rated deluxe breakfast with homemade bread and maybe the best coffee in Iceland, Guesthouse 1×6 is a real gem. We believe that at this house, you will feel very comfortable and simply happy. Guesthouse 1×6 is located right next to the sea and the oldest houses of Keflavik town center. ... more   less
