The Guesthouse Steinhusid is a very pleasant place managed by a Holmavik resident. You may have to collect the key from her by visiting the Finna Hotel (10 minutes walk up a steep hill). Don't be put off by ghastly TripAdvisor reviews of that place. It seems to be just an (unsettling) administrative arrangement. We enjoyed a single night here...

Our room was located on the top floor with a view over the harbour. The room was basic and comfortable. The common areas of the house were very cute, and the kitchen was modern, and had everything you would need to cook a nice meal. The host was a bit tough to get a hold of during the day as...

Very nice interior, clean and well equipped, view is nice, its a little cold though. Anyway, rooms are very pretty and cozy, it is definitely a good place to stay the night when in holmavik. Museum of witchcraft just across the road is quite interesting to see and little port nice to walk by.

My husband and I stayed at Steinhusid for 2 nights in March 2016 and had a lovely time. We chose Steinhúsið as it is conveniently located in Hólmavík above the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, where we planned on dining during our stay. Steinhusid is an old house, the first concrete house in Hólmavík, built in 1911. The proprietors...

If you like to be "home" rather then a typical hotel, this is the place. The 5 rooms share bathrooms, kitchen and living room. Very clean with vintage furniture. Good madrasses in the bed. A house with history. No hotel manager in the house, so we where "home alone". You can make your own breakfast/food or go for a breakfast...

Nice guesthouse located by the harbor. If you prefer privacy it's possible to rent apartments or you can rent a room and share the facilities with other guests. The rooms are small but nice and the bathroom is ok. There is also a fully equipped kitchen and a roomy lounge area. Across the street is a restaurant and museum, and...

Stayed for 1 night with my family in one of the small apartments. Did not know of late check in for starters and then upon opening the apartment, we immediately found a bad smell as it turned out that the trash from last visitors had not been removed. Although the apartment looked cozy with the old time looks, it was...

We were delighted with this place. The location is in downtown Holmavik, across the street from the Icelandic Museum of Witchcraft of Sorcery (though you have to check into Finna Hotel, up the hill). The downstairs is a living room, lounge, full kitchen, and bathroom, while upstairs are the bedrooms and a toilet. The room was decent enough, soft beds,...

We arrived at Steinhusid to find no one there. We buzzed the intercom on the wall. Someone told us to come to a small yellow house on a street with no name. The small yellow house was not the right place (the man and wife there were iratated).... It was the bigger yellow house with a locked door. Another intercom....
