Guesthouse Aurora is a perfect place to stay in Reykjavik, around the corner from the city’s most iconic feature, Hallgrimskirkja church. Those who want to base themselves in the most beautiful part of the capital, within walking distance of all the major sites, should highly consider booking one of its modern, comfortable rooms.
Location & Nearby
Guesthouse Aurora is located only three minutes walk from Hallgrimskirkja church, on top of a hill that overlooks the patchwork quilt of Reykjavik’s colourful tin roofs. This location is perfect for all who want to make the most of everything the city has to offer, as it is close to all cultural attractions.
The shopping street of Laugavegur, where you can find a wealth of boutiques, bars and restaurants, is just seven minutes away. The Harpa Concert Hall and lively downtown area, meanwhile, can be reached in a quarter of an hour, as can the bus station of Hlemmur, which will connect you to sites such as the Grotta Lighthouse and Laugardalslaug pool. Even these more distant locations, however, can also be walked to in an hour and forty minutes respectively.
As Reykjavik is Iceland’s centre of tourism, operators can pick you up from right by the guesthouse to take you on day tours around places such as the Golden Circle and Snaefellsnes Peninsula, and on adventures like snorkelling, glacier hiking and snowmobiling.
Facilities & Amenities
Guesthouse Aurora has double and twin rooms with private bathrooms, as well as single, double, twin, triple and family rooms with shared facilities. Even so, all of these options still have washbasins in the room for convenience, and the same chic, bright design. The family rooms are perfect for larger groups who want something central and affordable, as six can sleep in the double bed and two bunk beds.
There is a shared kitchen so that guests can cater for themselves, although a continental breakfast is provided each morning. There is also a beautiful outdoor patio where you can relax beneath the Midnight Sun in summer and look out for aurora borealis in winter. Furthermore, there is fast Wifi throughout the building.
