Sleepable Guesthouse in an Office Building
This "guesthouse" is actually located on the third floor of an office building (Another guesthouse, the 4th Floor Hotel, has rooms occupying , interestingly enough, the 4th floor... though their reception is paradoxically located on the 1st floor). Despite the unorthodox entry, we booked a clean, comfortable 3-bed room with shared bath for roughly US$100 per night. Breakfast is available for additional cost, but we were departing early for Akureyri anyway. On the positive side, we had plenty of room, free wi-fi in the room, and access to cooking facilities and a refrigerator. Within a 2-block radius, there are a number of restaurants (including a handy pizza take-away place), a bank and ATM, the Hlemmur city bus terminal, and a 10-11 convenience store. On the negative side, and perhaps a first in the history of Iceland, the shower had no hot water.
Unique Quality: - Inexpensive guest house with shared facilities
- Free wi-fi in room
- Access to refrigerator, cooking facilities, and common dining area
Directions: On the corner of Laugavegur and Snorrabraut, on the third floor of the building. Co-Located with the 4th Floor Hotel. Nearly every city bus (but not Flybus or long-haul buses) stops at the Hlemmur terminal, which is a block away from the guesthouse.
Be careful what 'private facilities' mean
We booked here for our first night in Reykjavik.
All the comunication went through mail. We asked for a bathroom in the room and they told us that the room would be with the private facilities.
We read in 1 guide that 'private facilities' means that the room is en-suite. Therefore, we didn't ask for more explenation.
But it doesn't necesserily mean that you will have a private bathroom in the room. Not at all. It can mean, like in this case, that you have only a sink. Small sink in this case :). The shower ant toilets were in the corridor shared with other rooms.
OK, for 1 night.....
It was quite clean.
Directions: It is in the centre, but Reykjavik is not big city, therefore, there is lots of accommodation conveniently situated.
