Lovely place to stay.
Lovely location and staff really friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Close to bus station for trips and walking distance to the centre. Picturesque and quiet residential streets. Good breakfasts too.

Stop looking elsewhere in Reykjavik!
As a frequent traveller, there's nothing more important than finding great accommodation for a great price. Guesthouse Galtafell was exactly this. Just five minutes walk from the real centre of Reykjavik, 2 minutes to the Hallgrímskirkja Church and the main roads out of Reykjavik really close. From the minute we arrived we felt welcome, our room details were on the door outside and we walked into a really cosy guesthouse with amazing room. The owners were happy to accommodate any questions we had be it about the guesthouse or even our trip. We stayed Friday to Monday and after the second night had a knock on the door telling us they had an apartment spare and if we'd like to move there. This had our own shower, a spare room and a huge kitchen. Our first room was great but this was something else and really added to the unique experience we had in Iceland. If we are ever going back to Iceland, this would be the place i'd want to stay in, it was 10/10 in every aspect. In short: I've never felt more at home when travelling!
