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.

Hello,

It was my daughters 16th birthday and I decided it would be nice to visit a few countries and broaden her horizons. We flew via Iceland Air and decided on the way back to lay over for 3 days
in Iceland.

Our trip started in Europe visiting Belgium, Holland, Luxemburg, Germany, Switzerland, Austria.

After 14 days of pure fun... Amsterdam crazy... The Matterhorn was cold but we enjoyed Europe.

We arrived at the BB44 but was re - routed to another sister hotel about 5 miles away. It was not a typical hotel but worked just fine for our tastes. The host was very helpful with directions and the use of the internet connected us with friends & family. If you buy a phone card at the duty free it's a great price to use while in Iceland. We drove around the whole Island and saw many great sights. Anyway the BB is worth staying at if your not into frills and just need a safe, warm room.

Jim & Allyson :)

Iceland is very nice especially if you drive the dirt road through the Island. You see many wonderful things but rent a 4x4!

Two female friends and I took advantage of Icelandair's Stopover fare, and spent one day in Reykjavik on our way to Europe in May. We looked at various hostels online, and based on TripAdvisor reviews, chose Guesthouse BB44. My friend contacted them directly, and received a reply promptly. It was the same way when we contacted the property several times for various questions later on. The proprietors, Sigga and Thollie, were so hospitable, we felt like we were part of their family, rather than guests. Thollie picked us up from the bus station, and gave us an unofficial tour of Reykjavik. After spending an afternoon walking around downtown Reykjavik, we were too tired and cold (snow flurries on May 20!) to walk back to the hostel and he picked us up after a nice man at a grocery store called him for us (we couldn't find a payphone!) That level of customer services is priceless. They also helped arrange a trip to the Blue Lagoon for us. I would go back to visit Reykjavik and stay at Guesthouse BB 44 just to see Sigga and Thollie again.

Guesthouse BB 44 was small, but we expected this while traveling overseas and were not disappointed. The room was very clean and the space was used extremely efficiently. There's definitely a feel of IKEA within the rooms for efficiency and clever space use.

Three of us shared a room, and we were all impressed with the shower. While small, you could adjust the temperature and strength of water flow, and it would immediately respond. My shower at home doesn't even change the temperature as quickly as I want it to. Of every place we traveled around Europe, this was the best shower.

But it was the hosts that truly made this a place we would want to visit again. Sigga usually runs the front desk and her husband, Tolli, drives the shuttle bus to and from the airport as well as into town for tours or a drop-off in the city center. While shuttling does cost extra, I highly recommend it during your first stay there. Tolli is fantastic, and he will show you things you might not have discovered while walking around on your own. Sigga and Tolli made our stay effortless and fun.

Upon our request of how to visit the Blue Lagoon, Sigga made all the arrangements for us--the reservation and arranging a shuttle to pick us up from the guesthouse and bring us back to its doorstep. They made everything easy and extremely enjoyable. Even before we arrived, Sigga answered my e-mail queries promptly and with friendliness.

They have a cute backyard area with a hot tub we did not take advatage of, but the landscaping and wooden deck were lovely.

We would definitely stay here again!

We spend 2 nights here and loved it. Very clean (guests are asked to leave their shoes at the door). Double room #6 was spacious with good heat and blackout curtains and TV and reading lights. And even though booked for a shared bathroom, we were delighted to find that we still had our own little WC/sink en suite. Shared bathroom with tub is fully stocked with creams, shampoos et.al. left behind by others if you've forgotten something! (There are other shared shower rooms I didn't check out.) One day when my sister didn't want to wait for a shower, she just took a quick shower outside, jumped in the hot tub to warm up, then re-showered and shampooed outside.

There's a community kitchen with mini-fridge, sink, microwave, etc. for self-caterers. Great breakfast in a lovely room.

Neighborhood is quiet, and there's a lovely path/walk into "town" (called Hamborgar, I think -with a variety of supermarkets and little restaurants and shops) that goes by a wonderful modern church. It's about a 12 minute drive to central Reyk and the host will even shuttle you over for about $5, though I'm not sure how late she offers return trips!

In fact, I think it's technically in Kopavagur, which is a sprawling suburb and the parts you see south/east of the highway are kind of depressing - but BB44 really feels more like just a little residential neighborhood of Reyk.

Can't say enough about Siga (hostess) and how helpful she and her family were with questions. I will definitely stay there again.
