An actual room for 3, was nice though at the far end of the hall from the communal bathrooms. Also, this guesthouse is hard to find and away from the city center. If we hadn't had a rental car and weren't ready to fly out of the country the next morning it would have been disappointing.

We really enjoyed staying here! So friendly - both staff and fellow guests! The place just encourages that! Very clean, recently renovated, excellent view from our room so we managed to see the late night fireworks on Cultural Saturday. Rooms worked, beds very comfy and sharing bathrooms was no trouble. Always clean and available. Breakfast was excellent! Help yourself to...

Booked here for the beginning of our trip for the first few days in Iceland. We arrived at midnight from a late flight but someone waited to check us in. The rooms are spacious and clean, with your own sink. The toilets and showers are shared, which are extremely modern and clean. Sharing was never an issue, and never had...

We stayed with Lilly for 3 nights. We absolutely loved it. Both Lilly and Pálmi were so helpful. Everything was clean and it was really convenient to be able to use the kitchen. Pálmi also made Icelandic pancakes and waffles for the guests which were SO GOOD. Wifi speeds were fast. It was only a quick drive to downtown Reykjavik...

My friends had booked 2 rooms at Guesthouse Lily to stay in this month. As one of them is wheel-chair bound, I thought I´d pay the Guesthouse a visit before their arrival to make sure that my friends´stay would be comfortable for them. In short, Lilly the owner, was amazing. She even had a special ramp built for my friend...

This is my third trip to Iceland. I chose to stay at Lily Guesthouse on this occasion. The building looks very ordinary from the outside, and is amongst some business units. Inside it is clean and modern and perfectly suited to our needs. Lilly and Palmi could not be more accommodating, they are full of practical advice on things to...

Stayed here on my honeymoon in June 2013. The rooms were immaculately clean and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating! It's a little bit away from downtown Reykjavik, but the excursions busses picked us up at the guesthouse and the city bus stop is a 5 minute walk, so we got around quite easily. Would definitely stay here again!

Guesthouse Lily was a comfortable, clean, all around nice place. Parking and wi fi are available. There was a washing machine, no dryer, but a drying rack was provided. I would stay here again. The breakfast is nice, too. It is about 15 minutes from Reykjavik.
