We had an amazing time staying at the Blue House B&B. The host makes everything as easy as possible from checking in to the self serve breakfast. The rooms we stayed in are extremely comfortable! Very close to outdoor swimming pool and baths which are well worth a visit.

We can feel only like at home in that house. The owner doesn't live in that house. Very clean house, nice design, nice breakfast, 2 bathrooms with shower and bath, and a lot of advices about what to do around. The owner is very helping and friendly.

After staying 4 nights closer to the city center, it was nice to get out of town for a few nights for peace and quiet at this gem! It has such charm, and it was so comfortable for our two night stay. The breakfast was just what we needed. On a nice day it took us about 40 minutes to...

We stayed here for three nights in December and were very happy with our stay. This is a lovely house which feels cozy and welcoming. Our double room on the first floor was small but comfortable, and everything you'd expect from a B&B. The bathroom was spacious, and we didn't have any trouble with having to share with other guests,...

Absolutely loved my time there. The house was warm, clean, cosy, close to Reykjavik, the kitchen was well-stocked with delicious food, and the owners of the hostel were very kind! They were very friendly, and helped us plan our itinerary, and jump-started our car when the battery died. Can't recommend this place highly enough

Room's OK, perhaps smaller than on the fotos, but all facilities are great and makes you feel like home. Zeno, the owner, is an amazing, friendly and extremely helpful person, even helping us when we weren't staying there any longer!

I arrived in Iceland at 5:30AM to pitch black darkness and rain. The TimeTours driver dropped me off in front of the house and left. I was planning to leave my bag in the basement, as it was stated that I could do before check in time, and head into the city to explore. But because of the weather and...
