Alba Guesthouse, Reykjavik

Lost in Reykjavik.
A little bit difficult to get to, but pretty close to the primary tourist sites (museums, churches, shopping district) once you figure it out. There's no sense to the layout of Reykjavik, and no direct routes to anything.

Good Value & Location
The Alba Guesthouse is a good value. Friendly hosts. Our room was clean and comfortable with dark curtains for a good "night" sleep at the height of summer. Be sure to enjoy their breakfast and coffee. If you plan to day-trip, you may want to arrange for Alba's bag lunches. They gave us two sandwiches, a fruit and a fruit drink for 1100 kroner- a good value when you consider the food prices at tour stops. The Alba Guesthouse is a short walk from many local sites, and is also a pickup site for the Reykjavik Excursion and Grey Line tour buses - perfect for my active family. If we visit Reykjavik again, we would stay at Alba Guesthouse.

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.
