BB 44 Guesthouse
Ranked #4 of 6 Kopavogur B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 July 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse--felt like the owners genuinely cared about our stay in Iceland and did whatever they could to help us. The hot tub and a big comfy bed were just what we needed after a long hike.

Room Tip: You can hear other travelers in the rooms next to you, so if you happen to be next to really loud sn...

Lovely guesthouse just outside Reykjavik (in Kopavogur). It is a nice walk to the city centre or you can take a ride. Clean rooms and comfortable beds for OK price, great value. Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Friendly, helpful owners who provide a reliable shuttle service to the domestic airport. The rooms were clean and a small shared kitchette is available for client use. We moved on from Iceland so only stayed one night but would recommend this B&B.

BB 44 is a very good value all-around. Not just in cost, but in everything you get! The family that runs the B&B are very, very friendly and go out of their way to help you out and make sure that you are all set for your trip. They provide maps, book tours, give advice on where to eat or visit. Car rentals through them are AMAZING as they will have the car ready right at the B&B, so there's no need to find a rental place and go back & forth to there.

The rooms are simple, but do include a stove, fridge, and some pots & pans for cooking. The showers are unbelievably warm (thanks to geothermal heat). There are no queen beds as far as I know...so we had to push the twin beds together, but that's no prob.

Breakfast is more than expected from a B&B---a wide selection of fruits, juices, veggies, meats, egg, pastries, breads, crackers, and cheese. Very European, mostly cold, but enough so that anyone could find a few things they would like. When we were heading out very early, they let us grab breakfast ahead of time and take care of ourselves before heading out.

They can also book pick-up and drop-off to the airport or elsewhere, which is very convenient.

Great service---this B&B made exploring Iceland easy and fun!

The hotel is in Kopavogur, which is a 15 minute bus ride from downtown Reykjavik. I recommend taking the bus as the walk is difficult, long, and not terribly scenic. From the hotel, walk towards East on Borgarholtsbraut and you'll eventually reach a traffic circle, after which is a bus shelter. From here you can take the 1, 2, or 4, each of which will go to a different part of Reykjavik. The 1 was the most useful for us, but the others can be handy for different times.

Also---there is a small, but nice supermarket across the street from the bakery/convenience store. It's a block down the street, just out of view from the bakery. Their prices on most foods and some gifts are better than ANYWHERE ELSE we saw in Iceland---so if you are looking for gifts (like yarn or knick knacks) or snacks---go here---the hours are very good (10am-10pm on most days)

Room Tip: There is free wifi in the common area, but it is not accessible in all rooms, so if wifi is really i...

The owners are friendly. The place was clean and they were very helpful with guiding me in ideas to do while on vacation. Food was great. Service was perfect. I would stay here again.
