We stayed at Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse on our second to last night in Iceland in early January 2016. We really did save the best for last because this stay was definitely the most comfortable and enjoyable of the entire trip. We were cheerily greeted by Valur outside when we parked the car and Gudrun waited for us inside, where she showed...

My wife and I had an incredible stay at Minna-Mosfell. Gudrun was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, she helped us to plan the few days that we had in Iceland meaning that we saw things we would have never have seen otherwise. Gudrun and her husband were very welcoming, got the hot tub ready for us and provided lovely snacks and...

Our extended family, including grandparents and children, have just returned from Iceland and the cozy, warm, wonderful Minna-Mosfell was magic. The house is located just 15 minutes to downtown, and just 30 minutes to the Golden Circle and there is tons to explore in Iceland with Minna-Mosfell as your home base. Homemade, fresh baked breads and pancakes in the morning,...

Traveled middle of September, so paid a good rate. Really good place, great advice, nice comfy beds, open living space. Shared Bathroom - but you get that in most of Iceland so thats not a problem.

We stayed at the Minna-Mosfell Guesthouse in July 2015 and I couldn't speak more highly of it. You can probably tell from other reviews that Gudrun is the most amazing woman- she makes you feel at home in Iceland instantly. We got into the guesthouse very late at night- almost 1 a.m., and Gudrun came out to greet us and...

We really enjoyed our one night at Minna-Mosfell and wished we could have stayed longer! We had the West room, which was perfectly lovely, if a tight fit for two as the website corroborates.
