Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wanted to try something a little different on this trip and not just stay in a hotel. So I found Treasure B&B and am so glad I did. I had room 103 which was great. Warm, cosy and very comfortable. The bed is located up on a platform, as such, which if you are not able to climb stairs might be problematic but was fine for me. The mattress was very comfortable. The one negative about this room is that its above the lounge so you can hear people walking above you but no reason to not stay here as its not hugely noisy due to the small number of rooms. This room also had direct access into the main house but also an external entry so you don't need to enter the main house unless you are headed to the kitchen. The location was excellent!!! Just off the square and really close to town hall bus stop 1 which is where all my tours left from. Breakfast included was great but I would have liked the option of a hot breakfast even if it is just eggs. But this isn't a reason to not stay here. You also have access to tea and coffee at any time in the kitchen as well as some biscuits which I really appreciated.

Location is the key for sure. Located in the Old Town with easy walking access to many sites, great restaurants and people watching fun.
The Treasure B&B is located in an old house. Very pretty with friendly hostess. Be aware that you need to walk up about 6 steps to the front door. If your room is upstairs you have another 12 steps. Our room was 302. It’s a tight fit and if you are above average height you will not be happy. I heard the rooms are larger downstairs. Bring earplugs as it’s an old house and you can hear people talk, floors creak or outside voices.
Our bed was very low and the sheets were not fitted and you couldn’t tuck the bottom sheet in.
Breakfast was boiled egg, cookie, bread, ham, cheese, cereal, orange juice, coffee, fresh fruit.

We arrived early (6am) and the host allowed us to check into our rooms and even fed us breakfast. Residence is within walking distance from bus stop 1. Great centrally located B&B. Easy to walk to old town and many attractions. Ms Steinunn (owner and host) is so accommodating. She makes a wonderful breakfast with fresh homemade pastries daily. She is so helpful in suggesting fun things to do in Iceland and restaurants to visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We are so glad we stayed with Ms Steinunn rather then a cookie cutter hotel. No regrets.

What a disgrace the coronavirus policy of this establishment is. We were travelling here for a 30th birthday celebration, despite most of the world being on lockdown, including as of tonight the UK, this hotel is refusing to offer refunds despite the fact that their guests cannot set foot in Iceland. Every other Icelandic business we have dealt with to cancel trips, rentals cars and planned activities have been very sympathetic and offered full refunds. However, in this case the receptionist was rude, unhelpful, unsympathetic and didn't want to deal with my enquiry. They have offered zero refund. I would strongly advise against staying here as their customer service is shocking.

Stayed here with my boyfriend at the beginning of March. Overall had a great stay, the room and whole place was spotlessly clean and the hosts were so welcoming. Great breakfast, choice of cereal, fruit, toast, delicious Icelandic yoghurt and even avocado if you fancy that! It was also nice to chat with other guests as it is around a communal table. We stayed in room 201 which is on the first floor, I do agree with other reviews and because of it being an old building and small you can hear other guests in other rooms e.g talking in the room above / squeaky floorboards. This personally didn't bother us as everyone seemed to be respectful and there is a sign to advise people to be quiet between certain hours. Overall I would stay again and have already recommended it to friend's and family.

Our experience did not match many of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed here at the end of our ring road trip so we had already stayed in many locations which we can use as a comparison. On the positive side, the location is excellent for accessing central Reykjavik activities and shopping. The room was clean and breakfast was included. Parking is not provided, but we found street parking and there is also a garage close by so that was not a concern.

We are an active, fit couple in our 60's and both of us are on the taller side. We had room 103 which is on the lower level with a window that looks out onto the street. The bed is in a loft area with steps to access the bed. There is no handrail and one side of the bed is up against the wall so there is no access to that side other than crawling as there is only about 4 feet of headroom to the ceiling. Access to the common area was up a steep, narrow, curving set of steps - the owners ask you to remove your shoes while in the house, so these steps are very slippery and a safety hazard for even those without any mobility issues. For any older travelers or those with mobility or stability issues, or those concerned about hitting their head as they exit the bed, this is not ideal. So, this is just a heads up for consideration when booking a room.

Room 103 is under the common area and any activity above and elsewhere in the building (footsteps, conversation, toilets flushing) can easily be heard making it difficult to fall asleep. Other reviewers commented on the street noise which wasn't a real issue for us. Breakfast was fine - essentially what most hotels would offer. There was no interaction with the owner, but we were provided check in instructions which noted all the fines that would be charged for lost keys, missing items, leaving the place in unacceptable condition etc. No other place we stayed gave us all those warnings before check in and this did not contribute to the warm welcoming experience we anticipated for a bed and breakfast. For the price, there would be better options unless you are looking for a funky alternative to other guesthouses or hotels and don't have issues with access, mobility, steep stairs etc.

We stayed here for 2 nights in an upstairs room. The room was quite small and you have to duck to enter the adjacent bathroom. Bed was comfy, breakfast was adequate. I would rate this B + B average but the location is primo. You are right in the old city, 2 minutes from the harbor, 2 minutes from the lake, great restaurants, and good (pay) parking 100 feet away. Definitely recommended over the large hotels.

The Treasure was lovely for our 4 night stay. Location is superb, very central but also in a quiet street. The building is one of the oldest in Reykjavik, a former bakers.

The host Steinunn is a lovely lady, very welcoming and personable. She has only recently taken over this property and provides a decent breakfast with fresh fruit, jams, breads, yoghurt, cheese, ham etc

Having read previous reviews we requested a ground floor room as we understood the rooms had higher ceilings. It was extremely comfortable, the bed was quite high off the ground but very comfortable. I understand there are only 5 or 6 rooms in total.

Overall, an excellent find and if we are to return to Reykjavik in the future we would certainly try and make this place our base

A gorgeous B&B right int he heart of Reykjavik. We stayed in room 101 which was more a suite than a bedroom - it has a fridge, washing machine, big bathroom and living area. The breakfast was the highlight of our stay - we met the host who gave us lots of advice about things to do in Reykjavik plus she had made focaccia, sweet rye bread and banana bread for the breakfast which were all delicious! We also learnt a bit about the history of the building (one of the oldest in Reykjavik). Overall I would absolutely stay here again when visiting the city

The staff was friendly. The room was clean. I stayed in the bottom level under the kitchen. The noise was unbelievable. From 6:30 a.m. until after 11 a.m. I listened to staff walk back and forth and back and forth as they set up, listened to other patrons eating breakfast and then it's staff cleaning up. There is another room on the bottom level. If anyone walks into the building(the little hall) from outside, let's say at 1 a.m., it's like they are barreling into your room and feels very unsafe and weird and now you're up. You are not allowed to use the kitchen. Just so you know. You can sit in it. The money I spent(over $2k for just me for 7 nights), I should have gotten a hotel room. At least there would have been a chance for in-room coffee.

Dear Jennifer Thank you for your review. We sincerely appreciate and value your comments on areas within our apartment hotel that we believe that we can improve to enhance our guests’ stay. Thanks for staying with us. The house is one of the oldest houses in Reykjavík from 1876 so the sounds move easily. We are so fortunate that our guests are very quiet and respectful. Our guests are welcome to make them self a coffee or tea in our kitchen during the day. We do hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the future for a more positive experience.
