“Clean and Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

My wife and I ended up staying at the Akra Guesthouse due to the fact another guesthouse in Reykjavik had double booked our room and we weren't told of that fact until 11:30 pm. So, off we went into the night to find the city of Akranes. When we arrived (at 1:00am) and were warmly greeted by Linda, the owner of the guesthouse. She waited for our arrival and got us settled in.
This guest house was fantastic. Extremely clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was first class and the owner, Linda, made us feel entirely welcome. We ended up staying two nights. She even helped us secure lodging in the village of Stykkisholmur for the following evening and gave us valuable tourist information. I highly recommend the Akra Guesthouse. Thanks Linda!!!

Room Tip: It was a bit of a drive from Reykjavik but well worth it.
