Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had the most wonderful stay here this February. This guesthouse is really well run and it's clear the owners put a lot of thought and care into their guesthouse. It's very clean, the bed is nice and comfortable, and the room was plenty warm. (and you can control the heat on the radiator on the side, so it's whatever setting you like best) There is a kitchen which has everything you would need for making coffee or tea or even meals, and has plenty of dishware/cutlery. There's salt and pepper and coffee/tea provided. Each room has it's own shelf in the refrigerator and they really got the extra mile with the smoothies they have ready for you on your shelf each morning. There are extra towels in the bathroom if you need them, and l"Occitaine products are available in the shower and at the sink for everyone to use. If you are worried about the shared bathroom situation, it's not a problem at all. There are 3 floors and each has a bathroom; so if by chance it's occupied when you need it on your floor, there are 2 others to choose from. All are clean and well kept. The location is also a wonderful feature here; it's just south of the cathedral at the top of the hill. And from the second floor kitchen, you look right out at it. Lastly, they have relationships with Braud and Co for a 20% discount on their amazing cinnamon buns, or at the art/cafe around the corner. The owners know the area well and gave me great tips on where to visit, shop and where to get groceries. Really, this place is so centrally located, it's perfect for staying in Reykjavick or getting to BSI or other bus terminals to go out from the city if you want. I will stay here again when I come back to Reykjavick!

Coming into Freyja's Guesthouse & Suites after a long flight was like coming home even though we were still thousands of kilometres away. Our Family Suite was physically and visually warm and welcoming, putting us instantly at ease. We appreciated the access to the kitchenette as well as the private bathroom. The hosts were very helpful and kind. We liked the location of our suite as well -- not only was it easy to locate, being close by Hallgrimskirkja Church, but we had more privacy being in an almost separate structure at the back of the main building. The breakfast available at Reykjavik Roasters was delicious, savoury and filling. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend these accommodations to others.

Lovely 2-night stay at this family-owned guesthouse. This was our first visit to Reykjavik and the owners were so helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do. Very convenient location in a quiet neighborhood. Breakfast was next door at a quaint coffee shop frequented by locals and that featuring Icelandic art. The bathroom was always very clean and sharing it did not prove an issue as there are bathrooms on both floors. A 5+ star recommendation - will definitely stay here again!

This is a wonderful place and an intimate setting! Although we were only here for one night, we felt a real connection to the place and people. It is centrally located in Reykjavik. The parking can be a little challenging but it so worth it! The owners are extremely personable and welcoming and wonderful to chat with. We only wished we had more time. They were very helpful about the area and things to do. At first we had concerns about sharing a bathroom, but it was never an issue as there are bathrooms on other floors. The accommodations are clean and welcoming, and the smoothie was a nice touch! This location will not disappoint!

Clean, great location. And it had everything we needed. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom, this is a great place to stay while in Reykjavik. Check in was very easy and the communication from the staff was excellent.

Loveliest guest house run by a very sweet family. Great facilities & excelent service. Good quality bed, nice decorated room, all you need in a kitchen, free nespresso, smart tv, warm clean bathroom, with luxury (L’occitane) bathroom supplies. Everything was organized and very clean. You feel special noticing how the owners have so much attention to detail. They even offer guests free smoothies. The location is super central, close to a tourist bus stop, but in a calm street. Ah, and there’s such a nice lounge and rooftop! I highly recommend this place :-)

Very nice place. Free smoothy! We arrived and had accidentally booked the wrong dates. They helped us out, gave us a room for the night for the same price and were very understanding. TV in room is huge with Apple TV. Overall great stay.

Comfy room with everything you need. Nice lounge area on the top floor with excellent and free coffee choices and snacks available for purchase to enrich your coffee. Free smoothy every day was fantastic add. L'Occitane products in the bathroom made me feel pampered and taken care of (unlike cheapest options you get in other stays). Location could not have been better - I saw fhe main church from out of my window! The area was safe to walk around at night and I was able to find free parking nearby so don't be scared that there is street parking. Free and very healthy(!) breakfast options in a next door cafe were wonderful. The cherry on top was wonderful host - such a friendly, welcoming, polite, smiling, helpful host, thank you so much, sir! I loved my stay in this guesthouse the most out of all stays on my trip to Iceland. Well worth the money.
