Great Place to Stay

Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: Food, host, comfort, cleanliness, the bath tub and the rabbits
Cons: Nothing
Location: Just outside Reykavik so need to get used to transport. However, very quiet ie no noise from clubs etc. Wonderful setting and lots of things to do.
Wonderful place, host extremely helpful. Very comfortable and great to be sleeping in a double bed after all those single beds in Iceland. Host rescued us after we had got off the bus six stops too soon!

Ok hotel. Bus ride to city center.

Posted Jun 6, 2014
I had to wait on doorstep 1/2 hour in the rain after I had called and told the owner I was coming . I received an argument that afternoon meant 4pm, not 2:30p in Iceland. There was a door code that the owner could have given me to make my wait comfortable, since I had reservations . Breakfast was a self service affair with meager provisions . OJ was watered sweet drink.

Great guesthouse with awesome host

Posted May 26, 2014
The guesthouse is located a little outside of central Reykjavik, maybe about a 15 minute drive away. It's quite nice to get out of the main city, especially when there is a picturesque lighthouse nearby, perfect for watching the sunset. The host, Zeno, is wonderful and very flexible. He helped us map out our trip, including giving us some great suggestions for sites we didn't know about. The room and bathroom were clean and updated. Our room also included an Apple TV, which we used to stream youtube videos one night. The wifi is also superb. Breakfast is serve yourself bread, meats, cheeses, jams, and cereal -- very typical.

So much better than a hotel

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: It's lovely and quiet, surrounded by the ocean on three sides and a nearby bus stop to take you into the city.
This place is perfect if you want a relaxing stay at an affordable price and aren't bothered about being in the city centre. At the Blue House you get an ocean view, homemade bread and kitchen access, comfortable beds and a lovely warm sitting room. There is a bus to take you into the city centre at the end of the street, so you're only 15min away from the main sightseeing spots. And the Blue House itself is in a lovely location on the western peninsula, a short stroll from a beach.

The blue house was all good

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: It was like home.

Jenny was more than helpful. Bed comfy. Great bathrooms.

Pleasant B&B in the suburbs of Reykjavik

Posted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: It was like living in somebody's house Communication before we arrived
Cons: Not enough milk supplied for breakfast Never actually met the hosts - although this wasn't really a problem as we didn't need them Directions to B&B
Location: Location a bit further out of Reykjavik than we anticipated (probably a 45 min walk to outskirts) Best to hire a car
Stayed for 3 nights in September Perfect base for exploring Reykjavik and surrounding areas

Quiet and secure B&B for relaxing

Posted Aug 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Communication went well even when we came in after they left for the day and we needed to change rooms between nights. They moved our bags for us - a big help. Breakfast fare was nice and consisted of cereals, meat, cheese, nice bread, milk, juice, coffee, tea. B&B felt very secure with a code pad for entry and there was plenty of parking in a quiet neighborhood. It was a bit far to walk into town, but was easy with our rented car and bikes would have made the commute manageable.

Beautiful house, stunning location

Posted Jan 23, 2013
Beautiful house in a stunning location, nice and quite but still close enough to the city centre. All the tour companies we went with were more than happy to pick us up from the Blue House. We had the whole house to ourselves also, so with access to a full kitchen, shops withing walking distance and a homely house, we were set! Zeno was very helpful and honest about what to see and how to do it and of course, a lovely bubbly person. Wouldn't think twice about where to stay in Iceland again, thanks Blue House

Hostel-like B&B alternative to a typical hotel

Posted Dec 7, 2012
Pros: Nice staff, meeting new people
Cons: Not as "cozy" as the B&Bs I'm used to
Location: About a 2500 Kroner drive from Reykjavik
Very friendly staff. Has more of a hostel feel when it's a full house. Keep in mind, this is a make-your-own-breakfast B&B and it is a little ways from the center of Reykjavik.

BEST place to land after you get off the plane!!!!

Posted Aug 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
I came to Iceland without much preparation due to business and some family events just prior. The host, Zeno, was so, so, so helpful in not only helping me know what Reykjavik had to offer and where to find anything I needed or anything I wanted. He also was kind enough to go through my 7 day itinerary for my drive around the island, offering hints and a good idea of what to look for or expect with the different sites. ALSO- free internet ad free phone calls to anywhere in Iceland if you do not have an Iceland sim card for your cell phone. IF you are American and have never stayed in a bed and breakfast in England or a pension in Italy , France, or Spain, you might be put off by not having a private bathroom (just bring flip-flops ($2 pair bought before trip made it for me. ALSO a hot pot (HOT TUB), well acutally 2 or 3 and a warm and cool pool are within a block or so from the Guesthouse and can be both very relaxing and interesting as you see local Islanders meet as it seems some of them do every single day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place-the hospitality is unequaled (I have now been in Iceland 9 days and this was still the friendliest host.)
