Very friendly staff and good value for money in Reykjavik. The place was very clean and the breakfast excellent. Great location and bus stop nearby for easy access to main parts of Reykjavik. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

I booked my three-night stay at the Blue House B&B when I saw the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and I was absolutely not disappointed. The house is really cute and well taken care of. The owner, Zeno, wasn't there to greet me when I arrived, but left detailed instructions on how I could get into the house. Once he did...

Spent 2 nights at the Blue House B&B, I pretty love this place. Started with the owner entertained his guest with a key and room hunting game, was surprised that my 'Interpol' room was so lovely and comfy, a shared bathroom was clean and well equipped, the most I loved was kitchen and D.I.Y. breakfast. It allowed flexibility with variety...

Planned to stay here for one day upon arriving in Iceland. Stayed in the Bungalow and immediately felt right at home. This converted garage is quite warm and cozy and we immediately hit it off with some fellow travelers staying in the other Bungalow room. Our host made sure we had everything we needed to ensure we knew where we...

The biggest thing that I liked about it because we booked it the day of was one, the super flexible check in time (everywhere else has a strict check in time of after 2pm) and the how laid back it is. Awesome house, also the owner is super nice. Definitely cheaper than the ones closer to town and you can...

This 2 part guesthouse is a little outside of the city center but is walking distance to the beautiful seaside and a field that offers a panoramic view of the city and water. I watched the norther lights on this field! Zeno is a wonderful host and does amazing work making the guesthouse look stylish and cozy!

We stayed here our last night in Iceland. It was short but sweet. We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. It was very nice and cozy. The room was warm when we walked in which was really nice after a long day of driving and site seeing in cold, very windy conditions. The beds were very...

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at the start of February and had a lovely stay. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable. Lovely freshly baked bread for breakfast everyday and the location was perfect for us just outside of the tourist hub of Reykjavik. There is a bus that takes you in/out...

You do need to hire a car while staying at the Blue House. That is the only negative thing we can say about staying here. But you should hire a car to see the beautiful sights anyway!
