You are right in the heart of Reykjavik, and the nearby church is a great landmark to navigate by. We had a preference of a double bed, but arrived to find a twin room. Not the end of the world but a little disappointing. Apart from that, can't complain about the room itself. It was lovely and clean, nice and...

We stayed here on New Years Even for 2 nights while finishing our trip to Iceland, and it was a brilliant place to stay. Check in is whenever you wish, as the key is left in the door of your room and there is a code to enter the building (so it's completely safe). We arrived at 11:30pm on NYE,...

I really enjoyed my stay here, it's in such a convenient location - opposite Hallgrimskirkja. Lots of tours will pick you up from there which is perfect. Also very close to shops and a lovely cafe - Reykjavik Roasters. Room was very comfortable, exactly what I expected for the price. Highly recommend. I am staying again very soon

Picked this guesthouse due to central location and price. We did not use the kitchen facilities but they appeared to be excellent and the best room in the house. We did not check out the back patio as it was cold and rainy. Met some nice fellow travelers. My husband struggled with the upstairs shower a bit as it is...

This is a wonderful, family-owned guesthouse right next to Hallgrimskirkja (the big church on the hill). You are in a real home, with full access to kitchen and laundry, and an impeccably clean, beautifully appointed place with new art work to observe at every turn. You can walk just about anywhere in the city very easily, and it's easy to...

They should be required to mention that "shared bath" means one tiny bath shared by nine people. Do the math and figure out how long you could have to wait while listening to lobbying from other guests about why they should go before you (you know my husband does have irritable bowel syndrome), or plan your bathroom time for 2:30...

Dear revilorc. First I must say that I am disappointed that you are disappointed. However I feel obliged to answer you to simply tell you and others how I personally viewed this whole situation. We have 3 bahtrooms on 3 levels for MAX 16 people total - so your math is a bit off here. If you really needed to...

Stayed for one night with a friend but would have stayed longer. The room was really clean. The house was cute and I really liked the back patio. It's also in a great location to get to the town centre. Wish I'd found it earlier.

The location is excellent and the room was nice and quiet plus bathroom close by--one bath per floor. The kitchen was spacious and reasonably appointed. a couple of things to note though...For those with aching knees, you should not stay here if you have issues with steep narrow stairs. OR you could ask for the first floor room (there is...

First plus is a great location. This guesthouse is one block from Hallgrímskirkja, the huge church that dominates the skyline from the top of the hill. It makes a great landmark so you can always find your way back to the guesthouse. Plentiful restaurants in the area, along with an easy walk down the hill to the harbor. We fit...

No reception and entry is via a code box to acquire a key. Large kitchen/dining area with all necessary utensils but no common lounge. Bedroom was clean and beds comfortable. Shared bath. Parking is at a church parking lot a short distance away. Very good for the price.

We're low cost bed&breakfast guesthouse with clean facilities, clean sheets and beds and shared bathrooms. We have breakfast every morning, from June-August, which is excluded in the price. Deskhours are limited which enables us to have this place low cost. All customers receive an e-mail upon booking with a key-code on how to enter the building. We also have a doorbell which calls us so we can open the doors for you if the customer didn't catch or read their e-mails in time. There's free (but limited) parking right outside, worst case scenario is to park one walking minute away near the church. We also offer popular tourist attractions and fares to & from the airport on loki.tourdesk.is We're locals and we help you with everything we can help you with so if you have any questions at all, feel free and ask away :) Kindest of regards Loki 101 Guesthouse Staff Birna, Daníel & Jun ... more   less
