Hlin and Siggi are lovely hosts. The guest house is cozy and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was great. I felt as if I had made a friend in Hlin. When I return to Iceland, I hope to be able to stay here again.

As my title suggests, we had an amazing time at Forsaela. From long before our summer 2014 arrival, Hlin was incredibly patient with me over email (a LOT of email) as we planned our stay, from helping us decide which apartment to stay in to actually providing us with a wonderful itinerary for the 3-day driving trip we took after...

What a lovely place! When my non-Icelandic bus driver couldn't find Forsaela Apartments at first, Hlin stood in the middle of the road at 1:30 am to wave him down. The place is pretty and close to the middle of town, the breakfasts are great, the water is hot, but best of all Hlin is a fount of information, and...

Dear friend of Forsaela. Thank you for a wonderful review. It cheers me up to think about our conversations during breakfast, your keen interest and positive spirit and the thoughtfulness of leaving a woollen scarf for other guests to use. I'll be looking forward to welcome the Flying Chef again to Forsaela.

From the moment we arrived Hlin and Siggi made us feel at home in their house. They invited us in like we were special guests and part of their family.

My husband and I stayed with Hiln and Siggi last week. Hiln and I had been in communication before we left the US for Reykjavik. She was most helpful not only in securing our accommodation, but is a wealth of information about travel in Iceland.

My niece and nephew (around 20 years old) and I stayed for three nights in the Forsaela self-catering Cottage. We received a very warm welcome from Hlin, the owner, even though she had had to wait up for us until our midnight arrival. Although self-catering, Hlin had gladly volunteered to stock the Cottage's fridge with basic breakfast items since we...

Even though this apartment house is just one block off of the main street of Reykjavik, it is on a very quiet block where the noise of the city doesn't intrude. Conveniently located if you want to join in the nightlife, then quiet when you want to sleep -- perfect! The apartments are super cute. Compact European style where every...

We stayed at a hotel during our first stay in Reykjavik but chose Forsaela apartments for the second stay and were delighted with our choice.
