We enjoyed the comfy beds, small attention to detail that we notice in the house which made us feel at home. The beds in the rooms with Netflix (came very handy when the bad weather hit Reykjavik). Overall we really enjoyed our stay :)

We stayed one night. The host was very communicative and provided all sorts of information about what was in the area and provided recommendations about what to see, eat, etc. We stayed in the Yellow house and the room was spacious and clean. Everything was as listed and we enjoyed a self-serve breakfast, including homemade bread, in the morning.

The host rescued us at 10pm after we were snowed out of our Air BnB accommodation! Although we disturbed him he was only too happy to help and directed us via telephone to the 'Yellow House' a few doors down. We had a lovely triple room, kitchen facilities and we enjoyed the location on the peninsula a bit away from...

Our room was Snæfellsnes (Twin Room) with a great view to the sea. The room was well equipped and there was a variety of breakfast for us to choose, apart from this, we could also do it ourselves in the kitchen, such as fish oiled scrambled eggs. Located 5-10 mins away from Downtown and 4 mins away from 24h Hagkaup...

I really loved it. We were 4 friends traveling to Reykjavik for a couple of days. It was good breakfast, great bedrooms and it was also a fine place to meet other travelers. The host was really helpful with everything. i would definitely recommend it.

We had an excellent time at the Blue House in Reykjavik. Everything was carefully planned and great for our 7 year old daughter. Easy and quick bus ride to downtown and plenty of choice for breakfast. Couldn't be happier with the accommodations and hospitality. Thanks for everything!

House is a very short drive outside of Reykjavik city center in a quiet neighborhood. I recommend a rental car, although you can take a shuttle, cab, or bus. Zeno sends directions to let yourself into the house to allow for flexible check in times. We saw Zeno during breakfast in the morning, but there is a chance you wont...

Loved it. The location might actually be a negative to a few, as it is out of the city center, but it is nestled out near the tip of the peninsula in a residential area and is quite cozy. The number 11 bus takes you within like a 10 ish minute walk though (or if you have a car) so...
