We (three adults) had a second floor apartment in the blue part of the building at Ránargata for 9 days. Our apartment has one bedroom with three single beds (a fully packed room, still have space to walk around the beds), and one living room with long sofas/table/chairs/sink/fridge/etc. The bathroom is small and functional - which is typical for many independent hotels that utilize old buildings. The internet is fast. Gunnar the owner lives in the hotel and is very friendly and helpful. When you are short of something (e.g., bath tissue), he delivered them quickly. A nice guy! Oh, there are several washers and dryers in the basement - free to use with washing powder provided!
I believe our apartment is more quite than the yellow part of the building at Garðastræti. We had no noise issue during the nights (mind you - only 2 hours of dark sky each night!). The location is excellent - convenient to everything you might want to see or need. We rented a car for a week. Initially we were a bit worried for the lack of parking near the Guesthouse. Then Gunnar told us that we could park along Ránargata, as long as we come after 6pm and leave by 10am on weekdays. Since we come to town as tourist, surely we do not sleep in the hotel during the day times! So for a week, we just parked outside the hotel for the nights, no problem. If you want some fancy hotel with lots of room service, you should go elsewhere. If you come to town as a tourist on budget, this guesthouse is an excellent value in this expensive town.
