Simple guesthouse with a good valued rate. Location was great since it was on a quiet street but close to the action. Rooms were average and many bathrooms while private were in the hallway. Recommended to those traveling through Reykjavik only needing a short stay. Special thanks to the kindness of the young lady working there who made sandwiches for...

The quality is really great thinking of how cheap this guesthouse is! ( we visited the guesthouse in november, out of season) We stayed here 3 nights. The room was cozy, the beds are comfortable and its very clean. The breakfast was okey, nothing more. The guesthouse is very centric, only 4 minutes walk from the midtown. Perfect! We know...

It was big, comfortable and clean. The last night we were in a big double bedroom (private facilities) which was fine. Breakfast buffet was great, and...

My friend and I stayed eight days at the Guesthouse Isafold because they were running a stay for four nights, pay for three promotion. Pros: Guesthouse Isafold is a five minute walk to the downtown area, but it's settled in a quiet residential neighborhood, so we didn't hear any noise from the street. The breakfast was my favorite part of...

My wife and I booked a room with Isafold through an online booking site which we then confirmed by email with Gunnar Gunnarsson (the manager or owner). However, when we arrived as scheduled, we were shocked and disappointed that our reservation had been lost, ignored, double-booked it’s not completely clear. We showed our confirmation and email correspondence to Gunnar who,...

We stayed at the Isafold twice during a 2 week touring holiday in Iceland. A little tricky to find (and get out of) in the old town one way traffic system. Car parking was a little tight in April and will probably be more difficult in peak season. A friendly welcome from Gunnar (and his dog!). The first, ground floor...
