Guesthouse Galtafell, Reykjavik
Very Good8.0
Cozy spot in Iceland
Room was pretty small, but comfortable. The area was nice, and a short walk to the city center. The guesthouse's cat - Jelly Belly was adorable and came and visited us our first morning. Breakfast wasn't included - about $17 a person for a small breakfast. The owners were very nice, and held our bags for us the first day because we arrived to Iceland early in the morning.
