This is a great stop for those wanting to visit Reykjavik. Although we didn't get much chance to chat to the host, there was lots of great information around the house for suggested sites and companies. We stayed here for one night before embarking on a trip round Iceland (currently in the middle of) and will return for our last...

We stayed here our penultimate night in Iceland. After an 8 hour drive from the north, we were happy with where we chose to stay. We stayed in a double bedroom with a shared bathroom. A comfy enough bed opposite the shared bathroom which was clean and nicely decorated. Fairly thin walls. The girls who stayed next door must have...

I booked this B&B for two nights at the start of our holiday. It was easily found. Great for viewing the Northern Lights, had a bus stop into the center located close by. The accommodation was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We checked in on our own but the owner was in his office in the basement. There...

My teen daughter and I stayed at Blue House, in the two adjoining rooms called "Grotta", for 4 nights while visiting Reykjavik. The house is very cute and tiny, and the rooms and beds were comfortable. The shared bathrooms are nice and there was very little noise in our rooms. Breakfast time can get very busy, but there is a...

On the outskirts, but comfortable, easy stay. I was put in a house away from the main area which was o for a single traveler, I would have liked to be closer. It was comfortable for the 2 nights I was there. I was able to get to/from town and the airport with very little trouble. The transfer service they...

We stayed for two nights in the Yellow House (which is about 150 metres from the Blue House). The Yellow House is a basement property which is accessed via half a dozen steps and a combination code which was emailed to us ahead of our stay. This arrangement suited us as we felt we were able to arrive slightly later...

We slept last week in the green house (bungalow next to the blue house). My boyfriend, his family and me shared this small house together and felt very comfy. The kitchen is small but gaves enough oppurtunities to cook good dishes for us 4. Included in the stay was the cereal breakfast, so milk and different types of cereals. The...

We stayed at the Blue House upon arrival in Reykjavik. The hotel staff were very communicative before arrival and we were even allowed to check in early. Nice house in a quiet area outside of downtown. We easily figured out public transporation to Reykjavik centre - though there is also a walking path along the shore that leads into the...

This was a wonderful place to stay during our time in Iceland. Before our stay we were provided all the relevant information via email, including additional information such as recommended travel. When we got to the B&B, I instantly noticed the picturesque setting and how comfy it was inside. The view from our room was also beautiful and it was...
