Apartment style not for everyone.
We had a nice stay at the guesthouse galtafell. The owners were kind enough to accommodate us even though we got there around 1:00am. The one bedroom apartment was roomy-especially the living room. We had two adults and one child. I would say that the one bedroom is better for couples since there isn't a door separating the bedroom from the living room and the bathroom does not have a lock either. We managed but if you want privacy, opt for a bigger room. The staff was very friendly. Keep in mind that since this is An apartment, you have to clean up after yourself. They provide soap for washing your dishes.

Do your darnest to stay here.
Generous breakfast...best deal in Reyjavid where food is breathtakingly expensive.(Think $15.00 street hot dog, $27 hamburger, $10.00 for less than a pint of beer.)

Galtafell Guesthouse excellent
Our stay started out with confusion probably due to our late booking on a Friday afternoon from a remote Northwestern section of Iceland and our subsequent after hours and after dark arrival. However, once we were able to contact the owner, he broke away from his Friday night engagements and corrected the situation within thirty minutes of speaking with him and within about one hour of our arrival. He also compensated us for our wait by throwing in free breakfast for me and my wife the next morning while apologizing repeatedly. He was sincere. I absolutely would recommend this guesthouse and would stay there again. The room was very nice with the largest bathroom of our week stay in Iceland. We stayed in seven different guest houses/hotels last week. Most others had tiny bathrooms like a cruise ship bathroom or had a horrible layout making them almost useless. The bed was a comfortable king with top quality sheets and extra pillows.

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.
