I booked this B&B for a night in Iceland on my way home from Europe and had high hopes. The B&B is a small but cute and comfortable house. However, there was no one there to welcome me and we did not see the owner at all while I was there. I had to email him to get answers to...

Dear Kate we are sorry you have did not appreciate the location. Many guest choose us especially because we are only a 5 minutes drive to downtown but yet located on a wonderful view at the peninsula. Please remember we did send you at booking and 2 days prior to arrival an email telling you about our shuttle partner that...

Nice guesthouse in a quiet and residential area close to Reykjavík; Complete self service breakfast. Invisible staff which is opposite to the warm welcome that we always received during our trip in Iceland (we have never seen someone from the staff). Keys were found with easy instructions left on the door.

Dear Isamelina, We are very sorry we were unable to meet you personally. This sometimes happens due to the fact that we are a small B&B and cannot be around all the time when many guests arrive late at night or leave early. Usually we meet our guests at breakfast if we have missed them checking in, and we are...

The Blue House B&B encouraged it's guests to take their shoes off and relax in the beauty that Iceland has to offer. I felt very comfortable in this cozy, renovated B&B - which also happens to be just a walking distance from a beautiful aerial view of the city. The hostel is perfect for both single travelers and families -...

This B&B is as lovely as can be! You walk in and instantly feel at home! The owner is very helpful and as he has been everywhere on Iceland, he knows what he is talking about. His recommendations were priceless. The blue house has a fabulous meet 'n' talk-living-area and Zeno has many funny stories to tell! Also don't miss...

We had a lovely stay, this B&B feels a lot like a home away from home. The Owner is very helpful and even cheered us on during the Reykjavik Marathon. The atmosphere is very relaxed and cosy, with a great view of the sunset over the ocean from the upper rooms.

We had a wonderful experience here! We were looking for somewhere to stay but because it was busy season, everything was booked. We found this place, and booked it without knowing much information about it but so glad we did!

Our stay for one night here was good once we figured out what room we were staying in. The owner switched our room before arriving and I didn't get a e-mail before arriving which led to some confusion. We were hoping for the owner to be there upon arriving vs leaving a key in the basement with names under them....

I stayed at both the Blue and Yellow house's with my Dad for a week. It's a great place to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but to still be close enough that it was never an issue getting back and forth. Everything is self-serve, so make sure you understand that before making the booking, but...

The title says it all. It is solid. No, it is not perfect and it is certainly not extraordinary. I give it three stars and think that this reflects what you can expect. What we liked: The Blue House is in a really nice and quiet suburban area, about 4 kilometers away from the city centre. The location is great...
