We found Tjaldanes at the last minute through trip advisor. What a little gem. A very country setting with lots of dogs, goats, and a giant pig roaming the area. We had been tent camping throughout our travels in Iceland, but wanted a little more comfort on our last night before our flight home. It felt like a little luxury...

We recently spent a night at Tjaldanes Room for Rent and it was very cozy, comfortable and clean. The owners are super nice and make you feel like you are at home. The location is kind of in the country, just outside Mosfellsbaer, and is very convenient, but feels quite rural. The friendly animals that roam the property are an...

I stayed here for one night in August. This is a lovely house with clean bathrooms and a large and well equipped kitchen. The owner made us breakfast which was really delicious, the usual fare, with lovely strong coffee. Met the resident pig, goats and dog. It is in a nice position for sightseeing at the Pingvellier National Park. The...

We traveled with a tour group for a week and were both sick and exhausted. The first thing we both did upon settling into our room was take a nap. This place is quiet, peaceful, and felt like home from the moment we arrived. It was the perfect place to recover. No pressure. In the evening we fixed a little...

This place isn't exactly what you'd expect, unless you expect to get out of your car on arrival and be greeted by a huge but friendly pig and some goats. Make sure you give them a good pat if you visit! The place is clean and warm, though it does feel a bit like you are on school camp with...

Found this gem last minute. Great location if you plan on exploring the golden circle, however we'd found that out AFTER going to the golden circle. So keep this in mind if you're looking for a good base to begin from. We drove up to Tjaldanes, greeted by horses, dogs and a little pig. It couldn't have made for happier...

We spent one night here in March. The room was warm and clean. The beds were very soft, though as a couple we would have preferred the possibility of a double bed instead of only twins. The guesthouse had good WiFi, a nice common room, and a kitchen.

I stayed with my parents, for one night. We arrived late (10pm?) and were welcomed by the woman running the place. She was so kind she immediately started to help with our heavy suitcases! We were the only people at the house and it felt like home, the kitchen was spacious and you can make tea or coffee there. The...
