Never having stayed in a "guesthouse" - it was 50/50 - an adventure. The reviews were all positive, clean property, cordial host etc. The price was affordable for Reykjavik, a pricey place. Arriving on the "red eye", early in the morning, I contacted our host, Herman. The airport is a bit of a drive into Reykjavik, but Herman said come...

This was a very enjoyable experience. Rooms and kitchen, bathroom were very clean and well stocked. Iceland is very safe and English used all the time. Everywhere we went, we used charge cards and truly did not need cash. I suggest using a phone gps even when walking until you are familiar with the area. Get a bus pass the...

在預訂前已事先看見屋主非常友善,到步後果不其言,很貼心,考慮週到,而且地方乾淨,一入住,已經詳細的介紹周邊的主地餐廳或其他有用資訊,而且浴室有提供shampoo, conditioner, shower jel 等唯一美好不足是距離市中心有段距離,而且 grayline 不停此處,但可直接步行至他們的巴士站,約10min距離。如從 grayline 買機場巴士到酒店,建議 to bus stop 已可,冇需到他們說最近的酒店 city hostel, 因距離差不多而已。 Guesthouse Helga 是我入住過感覺非常舒服的 Guesthouse。

Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers stayed at Helga's Guesthouse as a jumping point to our rental of a camper to drive the Ring Road around Iceland. We spent two nights in two downstairs rooms. The rooms were clean and equipped with blackout curtains. We had a shared bathroom with shower and a shared kitchen. The eat...

I stayed at Guesthouse Helga for 3 days along with my wife. The rooms were spacious, clean and very well maintained. Owner Herman is someone whom I would call the perfectionist who strives to keep things in their own places. He was very friendly and helped us with our planning, voluntarily. The common areas were also professionaly maintained and this...

The location is a short drive from the city center and the houses around the area (including the guesthouse) are beautiful. The host was very helpful, but if you are an introvert it might take you a little bit to get used to his extrovert personality. The room was cozy, and the bathroom was also comfortable. Door locks can be...

Stayed here in February this year. Our booking was accidentally cancelled and rebooked to someone else. The owner still managed to give us a room for one night, he also refunded our 2 other nights in cash and drove us to our new hotel the next day. Extremely clean, comfy beds and beautiful scenery.

A great guesthouse and a warm welcome. Herman took great care to advise us for our excursions, extremely hospitable and helpful. The guesthouse was very comfortable, clean, tidy and well presented. All the mod cons that you would expect from a guesthouse plus more. Location is a few km from city centre but fine to walk or there are regular...
