      First, the proprietors of Guesthouse Galtafell, Thory and Arni, are delightful. They provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The actual building is quite unusual, and has an interesting history. We were close to everything in Reykjavik -- theatres, museums, coffee shops, restaurants, shops -- and enjoyed walking everywhere. We plan to return in the summer!

      We loved everything.

      We stayed here for 3 nights in the outbuilding which is a converted garage. It was fantastic! It was so warm and welcoming with a small sofa, kitchenette, dining table and separate bedroom and a bath (which was lovely after a long walk!)The owners were so kind and friendly. They serve breakfast in their house at a large dining table where you sit with other guests. They make you feel like one of the family and it's nice to chat to the other guests. The guesthouse is perfectly situated in the city, close to the Tjornin pond and a short stroll from many restaurants and shops. We can't recommend this place enough! It's far superior to any hotel as it's so homely.Can't wait to go back!

      Fantastic facilities for the price - we requested a double room with shared bathroom and got an apartment with kitchenette, bathroom and sofa area. Friendly and helpful hosts. Easy parking on the street outside. Five minute walk into the centre of Reykjavik for shops and restaurants, and yet pretty easy to drive out into the countryside too. Highly recommend.

      Beautiful building in a great location close to most attractions in the city. Hostess very personable and friendly. A great value in a generally expensive city.

      Nothing, it exceeded our expectations and met our needs perfectly.

      Everything, the owners are very so caring and helpful, we shall never forget them! They went the extra mile everyday to make sure we where comfortable. They know the history the sites to see and how to get there.

      Location is great a ten minate walk to the city centre. The place is lovely and warm and has a good atmosphere.

      We stayed for our first and last days on the island. The Guesthouse offered a family style apartment which was an excellant value, especially for a larger group than the two of us. The location is absolutely great for visiting the downtown area (restaurants and shops) by foot. The hosts gave us an excellant suggestion for exploring the southern half of the island with a four wheel drive vehicle. If you don't have experience with "off road" driving and river crossing, you should hire a tour agency instead of driving yourself. One reminder about Iceland, it's not cheap. Enjoy your visit!

      The location was an easy walk to downtown on a quiet, pretty street. The room we had was quite big with a kitchen. Other rooms did not have kitchens so double check. The hosts were excellent. Common living/sitting room allowed interaction with other guests. Rooftop sitting area for a few rooms.

      The helpfullness of the landlady and landlord, they made all our reservations for the excursions. The location, quiet street with free parking. Meeting other travelers at the breakfast table.

      The ROOM. We made reservations for an apartment with separate bedroom, bathroom and sittingroom. When we arrived ,8 o'clock in the morning, after a night of travel, our appartement was rented out ( for 3 months) to somebody else and she had only two little bedrooms with a bathroom on the corridor, only fit for students.No luxury at all, small shower with a curtain! brrr, small toilet sink , toilet and all shared with the laundry facillities.Nice when you are 18, but not when you are in your 60th! We only needed one to sleep in , not two!Bare room, no curtains , only luxaflex and only one chair. So 9 o'clock I sat in my bed reading. Big fun for two nights, rest ok.

      When I arrived my luggage was delayed and I went on a tour that left me soaking wet. The owner lent me some of her clothes and washed my clothes for me. The next day, she also lent me a raincoat. She was super nice and helpful, and I couldn't ask for a better host. The hotel is located close to the bus terminal and a short walk away from the city center. It is relatively cheap by Iceland standards.
