This experience was like no other - from the moment we were greeted at the airport, to our final hours in Iceland, the guesthouse that became our home away from home and the hosts who we befriended for life. As the title says, words simply aren't enough to truly deliver our verdict as it's a place in which you need...

We booked a night at this guesthouse in a rush because our other hotel cancelled our reservations due to renovations. Well apparently we were the ones in luck. Beautiful property which you can see from the many photos. I was wary about sharing a bathroom because I have not done so since college. It was completely fine. It was always...

From being met at the airport we had a great stay. Our hosts became our friends and made our travels and tours so easy. The room, the breakfast, the hot tub and all the amenities were just what we wanted. They made travelling to and from Alaska to see our daughter and family the highlight of our trip.

We were picked up at the airport and shown around the guesthouse when we arrived(which was super cute by the way and very uniquely decorated). Then in the morning the hosts made us an authentic Icelandic breakfast that was absolutely delicious and really fresh. They were very helpful and informative and I would definitely recommend staying here!!!!

Our last night in Iceland and what a find! Great Location is only a start. Our hosts were just so wonderful from the very start of our stay. So welcoming and attentive...not to mention informative. We were downstairs and our friends were upstairs...so comfy. Little sitting room downstairs was an added plus. The 'hot pot' was put to good use...

My parents, husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it! Probably our favorite place we stayed in Iceland - which is just crazy since we stayed here as just a quick stop when heading to the airport. This place has tons of character, the hosts are fantastic, and the breakfast is top notch. There is so...

Do not hesitate to book this! Try to book direct with the owners, they are lovely people. The beds are comfy, the property is amazing ---across the street from the ocean and an awesome natural, rock, hot tub. There is lots to see around Keflavik with a rental car and there are a few good restaurants. Breakfast is mostly home-made...

Overlooking the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean in the small town of Keflavik lies Guesthouse 1x6. Arriving by transfer from our car hire company the gate of the guesthouse opened to reveal the two smiling faces of our welcoming hosts Andi & Yuki. Immediately we felt were meeting with two old friends. Having been shown to our room we were...

This Guest house is charmingly friendly, quirkily decorated, spotlessly clean and excellent value for money. Our hosts were most helpful and attentive- they advised us on where to eat in Keflavik and about contacting the car hire frim. Breakfast was delicious and home cooked from local sources. Andy the proprietor even took us to the airport for our flight home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guesthouse 1×6 is a unique family-run boutique bed&breakfast designed and initially created by a local artist, located in the old cultural part of the town of Keflavik – Iceland, overlooking the ocean and surrounded by museums, restaurants and much more! Yukiyo and Andi – a binational couple from Japan and Switzerland – are now owning and running Guesthouse 1×6. They recently moved to Iceland because they truly love this stunning country. Our little gem has just received the 2016 Traveller’s Choice Award from TripAdvisor and we are proud to be No.3 of all guesthouses in Iceland and No. 1 in Keflavik. Free transfers are available upon request from/to Keflavik Airport and an earlybird breakfast is served from 04:30am for all flights that are leaving after 07:00am. Please note that if your flight is leaving earlier, you may want to order a takeaway breakfast. We are looking very much forward to welcoming you in our gem. Guesthouse 1×6 is a perfect base if you want to see Iceland on day trips and stay in paradise. Here are some suggestions for easy day trips: – Visit the Blue Lagoon geothermal bath (don’t forget to pre book your entry ticket online!) – Explore the beauty of Reykjanes peninsula with geothermal areas and beautiful Lake Kleifarvatn – Drive the Golden Circle Tour – see the stunning waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss in the south of Iceland – go shopping in quirky Reykjavik city Our beautiful cosy rooms ... Ecological Guesthouse 1×6 was created by local artist Daniel Hjortur Sigmundsson, who creates out of what he has in his hands at any given time, reusing, recycling, creating an alternative to whatever is inside the box, refined and polished. His aim was to to make a difference in creating an environment that gives people the feeling of love, care, warmth and that we should always put an effort to our everyday life, it is the now that matters. Attention to detail is paramount and the wellbeing of our guests ensured by the singular choice of building material, 1×6 is the size in inches of the timber used to create the unique interior. You are invited to enjoy the one of a kind thermal bath in the garden with a temperature of around 40° Celsius. Along with even more details and services of the owners as well as a highly rated deluxe breakfast with homemade bread and maybe the best coffee in Iceland, Guesthouse 1×6 is a real gem. We believe that at this house, you will feel very comfortable and simply happy. Guesthouse 1×6 is located right next to the sea and the oldest houses of Keflavik town center. ... more   less
