The B&B is hands down the best place to stay just outside downtown Reykjavik!! When you arrive you will be greeted with friendly staff who is all about making sure their guest get everything they are looking for when traveling to the beautiful country of Iceland! They are very accommodating and provided many useful tips and recommendations that made this...

This B&B is simply great. The hospitality and accommodations are simply amazing. It is clean, stylish, and the breakfast food is plentiful and delicious. The one draw back is that its about 30 min walk from downtown Reykjavik. However, the majority of the walk is down the coastline so it makes it for a nice walk after dinner and drinks....

The room was nice with everything you need. Totally like the pictures. No problem to park and easy check-in / check-out. Also the breakfast until 11h30 with lot of choice and homemade bread was excellent. The host knows very well the needs of the guests and gives you very useful tips and recommandations.

I booked a room in the Blue House but ended up in the green garage, the room was nice, just two rooms in the Green House, very comfortable but still you needed to go to the main house for the complete breakfast, and the bathroom in the garage was really tiny. Staff was nice enough. but I was still a...

We chose this accommodation after reading all the good reviews from other customers. We must say that we are really surprised by such an enthusiasm. There are several issues that we think are important to raise: -First we never actually met the owners and judging by many other reviews they do not show up very often which you would expect...

Dear Ninou, we are sorry to hear you have had a bad experience. Please let me clarify: -Selfcheckin: it is impossible for us to attend the door 24 hours with 10 rooms and guest checking in any time of the day. Therefore we write you a message with the door code and are always available in the morning to help...

It's a nice place in a quiet neighborhood outside of Reykjavik. The house is a bit small, so it might be a bit crowded when fully booked. The continental breakfast was nice and included home-baked bread. Our room had a nice view of a lighthouse and the sea. The upstairs bathroom has its bathtub located under a sloping ceiling, which...

My husband and I and another couple are visiting Iceland for the first time. We are all extensive travelers and we can be described as people who "go with the flow".

Dear Debbie, thank you for your review. Please note when staying at the Green House you share the cottage with another room. In this case they were using the fridge so we can not throw away their food for other arrivals. We did investigate regarding your phone troubles and luckily your case seems to be an exeption.

This guest house consists of the main blue house, as well as a cottage with 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and kitchen and lounge area. This is known as the green house. We stayed in the latter and also had a Japanese couple staying with us. The single bathroom posed a bit of planning, because 4 people takes up a lot...

We arrived late at night, found the main blue house ok, although our room was in the yellow house, which was a little difficult to find initially. Anyway we got in ok, nice authentic little apartment. Quite, comfortable, clean. Well located, will give you an opportunity to explore the peninsula and old harbour, which you may not get to see...

Great place to stay in a quiet neighbourhood just a quick bus ride from Downtown Reykjavik. Rooms were cosy and clean with a very comfortable bed, shared bathroom and kitchen. Staff were very friendly and welcoming on arrival and the free wifi was fast. Would stay here again without a doubt! Lovely!
