“would recommend”
Reviewed 5 June 2008

My husband and I chose this location for our brief, 2 day, stay in Iceland so that we could not only save from the cost and hustle and bustle of downtown Reykjavik, but so that we could chat with the homeowners and get a little better feel of the country--it served all of these purposes well!!! We had a small WC in our room and then used a shared shower in a larger bathroom, which posed no problem at all with other guests; the room was quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the conversation was lovely, the owners are quite pleasant and know English (and other languages) well. I think one would definitely need a car to get to town or tour (unless you use the hotel tour options and airport transit), but many of the greatest sites in Iceland need a car regardless.
I would definitely recommend this location, it's really a great value!

We spent 3 1/2 days in Iceland and can thank Sigga and Tolle for taking care of the all-important things- they had a 4x4 ready to rent, knew which tours would be ideal for us, gave us great directions, picked us up from the airport and even dropped us off at the bus station when she booked our Blue Lagoon tour. Everything was booked onsite the morning we arrived. Typical european private home bed and breakfast. We had a room w our own bath. Hairdryer. All very clean. Breakfast also typical euro style- meats, cheeses, yogurt, coffee. The bonus- HEATED floor in the windowed bright breakfast area which overlooks their well-kept adorable garden/backyard. We used the Jacuzzi- and tho the house was full, we felt like we had the place to ourselves. AND, will stay there again when going to Reykjavik. Bus station to city within walking distance. Located slightly outside of city proper- about 5 km. Ideal.

We stayed here in 2003 and had a fab time. It was cheaper than the youth hostel - there was a discount for our fourth night and they didn't charge us for our daughter.

The hosts were so helpful suggesting routes and lending us maps.
Our daughter built a snowman in the garden.

The shower (ours was ensuite) was scalding but soothing. The outdoor hot tub in the snow was an experience never to be forgotten.

We were given 3 cups with the website and a sketch of the guesthouse on them as a leaving present. We think of Iceland every time we have a coffee.

Stayed March 2003

We ended up staying at the BB44 Guesthouse because our previously reserved accomodation was not available. The owner of the BB44 was wonderful. She picked us up from the BSI bus station. She also helped us find a hotel for the next night when she had no rooms available. The BB44 also does car rentals at reasonable prices. She rented us a vehicle and gave us recommendations for the best route to follow. The up stairs of the guesthouse has a breakfast room as well as a small den area with a TV. Internet access is available in the lobby for a small fee.

When staying in a country with which you are not familiar, a person who knows the system and is willing to use her expertise to make your stay enjoyable, is the most important resource you can have. Sigga at BB44 was brilliant and made our stay truly memorable. Because she understood how the tours operated, she knew to call them when she saw us waiting hopefully by the roadside long past when we should have been picked up. She also waited up when we were late coming back from another excursion, and booked us in to a last minute trip to the Blue Lagoon. She did it all with grace and good cheer as well. Other hotels might have larger rooms, but the personality of BB44's decor and the lovely garden made the place homey and comfortable. I would certainly stay there again.

We will definitely stay at BB44 when we return to Iceland. I received very prompt replies to my email inquiries, and was very happy with the price and our room, which was small but very clean and comfortable. The best thing about the BB44 though is Sigga, the always-there-when-you-need-her innkeeper. She was so incredibly helpful, and really went above and beyond to make sure our visit to Iceland was enjoyable. She followed up with our airline regarding missing baggage, she called a tour company when she noticed we were still waiting by her curb to be picked up past the appointed time, and the list goes on. She is a very valuable resource to have at hand while staying in the Reykjavik area. There is a bus stop very close to her house where you can catch a bus for the short trip into the city center, and the tour company we used (Gray Line) picked us up each morning at BB44. Our trip was very enjoyable - Iceland is a wonderful country and Sigga is an outstanding hostess.
