Eric the Red is - without a doubt - the best guesthouse in Reykjavik.
Found in a convenient, central location next to the iconic church, the Hallgrimskirkja, and seven minutes’ walk from the bus station, Eric the Red has simple, clean rooms, free WiFi and great breakfasts.
Charming host Rúnar is a carpenter and art lover and he and his partner Edda have filled the house with paintings by local artists and treat all guests like long lost relatives. There are 12 rooms, although Edda also has an apartment to let a few minutes' walk away.
Breakfasts are great and a good opportunity to try the delicious skyr (a bit like yoghurt). Edda and Rúnar help with travel information, tales of Icelandic life, history and culture on long chats in their cosy kitchen and their ginger cat, Raki, is friendly and welcoming, like all Icelanders.
This comfortable Reykjavík budget hotel offers guests a complimentary breakfast and free Wi-Fi internet access. Capital-Inn has spacious and newly renovated budget rooms.
The hotel is just a short walk from the Kringlan Shopping Centre, Perlan and the beach, which has geothermal heated seawater. Guests at Capital-Inn also benefit from complimentary private parking.
It is a hotel a two hour drive from Reykjavik. I went in 2007 with a school trip and stayed for a few nights to experience the Northern Lights. It is set within the amazing landscape of Iceland and offers a 360 degree view to capture the incredible displays. It is singly placed meaning there is not a disruption from other hotels or settlements.
The best discount card - don't go to Iceland without one. Voyager Card saves you up to 20% off many restaurants, bars, shops and hotels in the centre of Reykjavik. It pays for itself in a few hours or even a few minutes if you use it to book one of the partner hotels.
A great hotel based in the centre of Reykjavik. I was worried it was going to be more of a budget hotel, but it's nothing of the sort!
Ask for a room at the back and you'll get a large room with its own fridge, television and Wi-Fi.
Very comfortable and warm - just what you need when in from the cold!
