Everything was wonderful. The guesthouse's owners. The food they serve you in the morning. The decoration is so beautiful. And... they have a surprise!! ;) I strongly recommend this guesthouse. If I need to sleep again in that town definitely I would book a room with them again.

This is not an ordinary hotel experience! It has great character, more like a boutique hotel than a guesthouse. Very comfortable, intimate yet private. Quiet yet friendly. I booked this guesthouse mainly as somewhere close to the airport but ended up with a unique and memorable stay. It is five minutes from the airport and the very kind owners offer...

1x6 is an excellent place to stay with beautiful views and a 2 minute walk to a lovely restaurant . It is a little bit more expensive than some other properties in the area but its well worth it . We spent our last night in the thermal pool in the back garden looking up at the northern lights (...

I can't say enough nice things about this guesthouse. We loved all of it and we loved Andi and Yuki. Since we landed at 5am, we had to book the night before in order to guarantee such an early checkin but it was a fair deal because Andi picked us up at the airport (he wakes up at 3am -...

We recently stayed at 1x6 guest house for 2 nights based on the positive reviews. Our stay lived up to all expectations and more. Andi and Yuki the hosts were the most welcoming, helpful and genuine people. The accommodation had a really calm and warm ambience.

Dear fellow travellers, I am usually not the type of guy whom takes the time to put a review online although I have been traveling extensively to B&B and boutique hotels world wde, but I must make an exception for Andy and Yuki.

1 x 6 made our last night in Iceland a very easy stay. The rooms are cozy and the breakfast was beautifully presented with excellent local flavor. A soak in the large tub out back was fantastic, and I was pleased with the extra touches like bath robes and slippers for guests when using this. I will definitely try to...

Couldn't have booked a better place in Iceland. So friendly and welcoming, hosts Andi and Yuki go the extra mile (literally) drove us to and from the airport and also to the Viking museum. A warm, friendly, cosy lovely guesthouse with a great breakfast. I think the hosts run it because they genuinely love doing it, or at least that...

If you find yourself waking up in a guesthouse run with awesome Swiss efficiency complemented by charming Japanese hospitality, you must be staying at 1x6 Guesthouse. Here the lovely proprietors endeavour to provide everything (including those elusive Northern Lights!) for a most relaxing stay in their cosy home. Linger longer to enjoy the freshly home-baked breads at breakfast, some coffee...

what a wonderful hot pool, outside! I could enjoy relax time with a lot of stars and moonlight under the night sky. It was really nice eventhough sometimes snowy or rainy. And I could look around out of the house by walk. A small harbour, beach, small but friendly restaurants and bars of this village..These are peaceful and good to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guesthouse 1×6 is a unique family-run boutique bed&breakfast designed and initially created by a local artist, located in the old cultural part of the town of Keflavik – Iceland, overlooking the ocean and surrounded by museums, restaurants and much more! Yukiyo and Andi – a binational couple from Japan and Switzerland – are now owning and running Guesthouse 1×6. They recently moved to Iceland because they truly love this stunning country. Our little gem has just received the 2016 Traveller’s Choice Award from TripAdvisor and we are proud to be No.3 of all guesthouses in Iceland and No. 1 in Keflavik. Free transfers are available upon request from/to Keflavik Airport and an earlybird breakfast is served from 04:30am for all flights that are leaving after 07:00am. Please note that if your flight is leaving earlier, you may want to order a takeaway breakfast. We are looking very much forward to welcoming you in our gem. Guesthouse 1×6 is a perfect base if you want to see Iceland on day trips and stay in paradise. Here are some suggestions for easy day trips: – Visit the Blue Lagoon geothermal bath (don’t forget to pre book your entry ticket online!) – Explore the beauty of Reykjanes peninsula with geothermal areas and beautiful Lake Kleifarvatn – Drive the Golden Circle Tour – see the stunning waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss in the south of Iceland – go shopping in quirky Reykjavik city Our beautiful cosy rooms ... Ecological Guesthouse 1×6 was created by local artist Daniel Hjortur Sigmundsson, who creates out of what he has in his hands at any given time, reusing, recycling, creating an alternative to whatever is inside the box, refined and polished. His aim was to to make a difference in creating an environment that gives people the feeling of love, care, warmth and that we should always put an effort to our everyday life, it is the now that matters. Attention to detail is paramount and the wellbeing of our guests ensured by the singular choice of building material, 1×6 is the size in inches of the timber used to create the unique interior. You are invited to enjoy the one of a kind thermal bath in the garden with a temperature of around 40° Celsius. Along with even more details and services of the owners as well as a highly rated deluxe breakfast with homemade bread and maybe the best coffee in Iceland, Guesthouse 1×6 is a real gem. We believe that at this house, you will feel very comfortable and simply happy. Guesthouse 1×6 is located right next to the sea and the oldest houses of Keflavik town center. ... more   less
