Alba Guesthouse, Reykjavik
Excellent4.0 / 5
3 nights in Reykjavik
The place was great and the staff were all very sweet. A little out of the way for downtown Reykjavik but it's a straight forward walk so it was fine for us- or if you rent a car it's a very quick drive. The bed was comfy and bathrooms were fine.

Budget friendly. Decent location
We had two twin rooms, very tiny but clean. One room had no mirror but both had sinks. The owner made each person fresh coffee in little pots. Nice selection and pretty breakfast room. My daughter slipped on treacherous curved stairway (shoes left in front hall). Owner should update couches in living room.

More expensive than it should be
The guesthouse was fairly expensive for what you get. Breakfast was modest but satisfactory. Rooms were very small and the community bathroom wasn't enough for the number of people that had to use it. Clogged shower drain was a continual problem. Cheaper places probably have similar amenities.

Completely Satisfied with Our Stay
Our host and hostess helped arrange the tours we took (including printing vouchers) and gave us great tips (if they hadn't advised us, we would have missed the Northern Lights!). They also will provide lunch for a reasonable price. The breakfast was GREAT! I just loved the atmosphere of the guesthouse - we felt comfortable and welcome and really enjoyed our three-day stay. The major tour buses will pick up from Alba Guesthouse and it's only a 15-minute walk to the city center area (a bit closer to the nearest restaurant). I would definitely stay there again if traveling to Iceland. (I also loved the heated tiles in the bathroom!)
