Frequently asked questions

Which guesthouses in Reykjavik are the best for a weekend short stay?

It all depends on your preferences and the budget you want to spend on accommodation. We especially recommend the location around Laugavegur or the Old Harbour, as well as near lake Tjornin, where you can go on a guided tour or a walk to all the most famous attractions in Reykjavik.

What are the best guesthouses in Reykjavík near Harpa?

Harpa is located in the city centre of Reykjavik, right next to the Old Harbour. Therefore, you will find the best guesthouses right there or close to Laugavegur street. From most properties in the famous 101 district, you'll reach Harpa in a few minutes by car or a half-hour walk.

Do the guesthouses in Reykjavik offer self-check-in and luggage storage?

In many guesthouses, you will find the option of self-check-in, which is very convenient when your plane lands late, or you want to explore Reykjavik longer. Many guesthouses also offer luggage storage. Check the available amenities on our accommodation page and choose a guesthouse in Reykjavik that will perfectly meet your expectations.

Which guesthouse should I stay in if I don't have a rental car and need to travel by public transport in Reykjavik?

If you don't rent a car, your only option will be buses or taxis. If you want to explore Reykjavik, you should choose a guesthouse in the city centre, for example, near the Hallgrimskirkja church or Hlemmur and Austurvollur squares. You will be close not only to all major attractions but also to bus stops. Most guided tours start at pickup places located mostly in the centre of Reykjavik.

Do the guesthouses in Reykjavik offer private rooms with bathrooms?

Many guesthouses in Reykjavik offer private rooms with private bathrooms. However, it may happen that the accommodation will have access only to a shared bathroom. Therefore, we encourage you to check available amenities before you come to Iceland and adjust your stay to your preferences. Room options with private bathrooms will be slightly more expensive, but they will provide you with maximum privacy during your stay in Reykjavik.

Can I book a room in a guesthouse in Reykjavik that has true Icelandic charm and is family-friendly?

In Reykjavik, there are several guesthouses run by families who devote significant attention to interior design, atmosphere, and details. The unique, Icelandic nature of this accommodation and the people creating these places often causes guests to return to them during their next stay in Iceland. If you like such sites, we recommend checking out the offer of guesthouses in Reykjavik on our accommodation page and choosing a place that will meet your expectations.

Do guesthouses in Reykjavik offer a free shuttle from an international airport?

Unfortunately, most hotels, guesthouses, and hostels do not offer free transfers to accommodation from the Keflavik International Airport. However, you have three options: a bus leaving every half hour to the BSI station in the centre of Reykjavik, a taxi or the most popular choice among tourists visiting the island, which is renting a car at the airport in Keflavik right after arriving in Iceland.

Should I book a guesthouse in Reykjavik if I come with a large family or a group of friends?

Most guesthouses in Reykjavik and other parts of Iceland offer family rooms or dormitories where you can spend a comfortable time with your loved ones. If you are arriving in summer, book this accommodation in advance. Sometimes the offer of these rooms is much smaller than the standard one, and this accommodation is quickly fully booked.
