  • Our stay started out with confusion probably due to our late booking on a Friday…Oct 24, 2016

Nice Stay
The Guesthaus was very clean and attractive, and convenient to downtown shopping and restaurants. The staff was pleasant and helpful, but it wasn't always clear when they would be available. The breakfast was cold cuts, rolls and cereal- nothing homemade, but still a good value for the money. No face cloths and only one towel, so be prepared. Also, cat on the premises so alert owner if allergies are a problem.

Fantastic location and accomodations
Guesthouse Galtafell exceeded our expectations, extremely friendly staff, very nice and comfortable rooms with plenty of privacy in a beautiful neighborhood close to BSI bus terminal and short walk to shops. More of a hotel than some of the other guesthouses and well worth the price.

First stop on Ring Road
The shared bathroom is very strange, as one of the rooms is connected to it but the others need to walk through the dining room to access the bathroom. Additionally, we were in room 9, which is upstairs. I don't mind hauling luggage up stairs, but this is the smallest, most narrow spiral staircase i have ever seen and I couldn't safely get my or my husbands luggage up there. We wound up putting some things in our backpacks and leaving the rest in the car. Also, it says there is free parking, they don't mention that it's on the street which isn't a huge problem, unless you have to leave 2 weeks worth of luggage and things in the car (fortunately, we only stayed there one night). The neighborhood is nice and seems safe, it's just not the ideal way to start a trip. Finally, the room needs better shades on the windows given there is almost 24 hours of sun in the summer - the other guesthouses we stayed in had black out curtains in them.

Great place to stay in Reykjavik
The owners of Galtafell were fantastic. We had a great time in Iceland and being right near everything in Reykjavik and walking distance was wonderful. It was a quiet neighborhood and the room was spacious and comfortable.
