This is a house with 5 rooms, two toilet (one bathroom) and living room with fridge, microwave and something to boil water. The owner lives there, so is easy...

We didn't get a chance to stay at this guesthouse due to a change of plans. Aka Guesthouse was very flexible and helpful to our requests. We appreciate how accommodating they were and would recommend them on customer service alone.

We arrived at this guesthouse and the hostess was very nice and very friendly and we had a good chat with her. We were so lucky to have stayed there just after some other guests left and we had the whole house to ourselves. Everything was spotless and the accommodation itself was in a quiet place as it was further...

We were greeted quite warmly by our hostess. She showed us to our room and gave us the lowdown on the house. She was kind enough to give my husband her laptop so he could get some work done. There is not much to see or do in Akranes, but our lovely stay in the Akra Guesthouse made up for...

We stayed here for two rainy days and it felt as if we had discovered a real sanctuary. The hostess was just the nicest person ever and we felt as if we were staying in the home of a friend. The owners live downstairs (in the basement, really) and the upper two floors of this historic old house are given...

This guesthouse is really someone's home and the family lives in the basement. There are several rooms upstairs, including at least one single room, and there is one shared bathroom. The rooms are nice, the owner is extremely friendly and welcoming, and it is located right in town (although the town is very small). I prefer something that is a...

My wife and I ended up staying at the Akra Guesthouse due to the fact another guesthouse in Reykjavik had double booked our room and we weren't told of that fact until 11:30 pm. So, off we went into the night to find the city of Akranes. When we arrived (at 1:00am) and were warmly greeted by Linda, the owner...

“The rooms upstairs”
 of 5 bubbles DenisD317, 14 May 2015 | Read review
“I believe that the rooms all have different prices because the bed count and size varies a lot. Just ask ahead. The two littlest rooms are in front above the street and there was some street noise, but town went to bed quite early and it wasn't a problem.”
