                            I stayed at this guesthouse for 3 months. I was extremely happy with the place. The location is fantastic; less than a 2 minute walk to the ocean and walking/biking trails, and an easy 25 minute walk past the University of Iceland to the heart of downtown Reykjavik. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and public transit is nearby. The guesthouse itself is a lovely place, with all necessary amenities. It is in excellent condition, nicely decorated, and very clean. A variety of books and a few DVDs and CDs are available, which was a nice touch, as is the availability of cable TV and wireless internet. For about 3 weeks out of the 3 months I was there, 4 other adults also stayed in the guesthouse. We found that, though we did not all have separate rooms, there was enough space to sleep us all comfortably. It would also be ideal for a family with children. The owners are very friendly and wonderful to deal with, and I found the rent to be very reasonable. I would most definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone I knew looking for a place to stay in Reykjavik.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.
