All of the reviews which consistently rank this as the best guesthouse in the Reykjavik area, if not all of Iceland are absolutely correct. This was the best place we stayed at in a 12 day tour of Iceland and a real credit to the hosts. The hosts are the most welcoming, warm, friendly couple you can imagine and go...

Guest rooms are in their own area, with a large, shared...

She was there when we returned from our day to ask how things went. Some folks may love this kind of attention. My wife did. I usually prefer a bit more privacy....
