“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights in a single room when I first arrived in Reykjavik. The room was compact but didn't feel cramped, and very clean. The shared bathroom was good and didn't cause any hassles. Perfect location, wish I could give more stars, as not only is it easy to find your way back by looking for the big church next to it, but you can easily walk to the main street, harbour, the pond and buses. The breakfast was lovely and it felt like eating with your family around the big table each morning. It also felt like you were really a guest at a friend's house as the owner was so welcoming and helpful. I much prefer staying in a guesthouse to a big hotel, especially ones like this!

We stayed here for one night in a double room paying £60 in summer, the location I ideal for exploring Reykjavik– located directly opposite from the Hallgrímskirkja church which acts a good point of reference for getting your bearings. The guesthouse is located on a quiet residential street and we didn’t hear any noise, even from the church bells. It is in easy walking distance to the bars/restaurants and main shopping area (10 minutes’ walk, 20 mins from harbour area) and it is really easy to navigate back to the main ring road for onward travel, there is also free on-street parking right outside the guesthouse which is a benefit if you have a hire car.

The lady that welcomed us was welcoming and friendly. The room itself was really nice and spotlessly clean with a large comfortable bed and pleasantly decorated (it reminded me of being near the seaside). The shared bathroom was really clean with a strong powerful shower and we never had to wait to use the facilities, perfect after spending the last week in a tent! There was also free reliable internet in the room and the room included breakfast which we unfortunately missed due to sleeping late.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this guesthouse for its ideal location and competitive price, especially if renting a car as the parking is an added bonus.

I don't give 5 stars very often but this guesthouse ticked all the boxes. The rooms are simple but comfortably appointed, either looking over a courtyard or a quiet sidestreet. Location is central, with everything easily within walking distance. Breakfast is good, and the kitchen facilities are available 24 hrs if you want to refridgerate your own food or make a midnight snack. The owners were accomodating and a pleasure to chat with. I'd recommend it to my mom.

Room Tip: I stayed on the courtyard side and it was dead quiet - the church bells stop around 22:00

This guesthouse is ideally located. Clean, great breakfast, the owner was excellent to deal with. The guesthouse is just around the corner of the Loki cafe which I would highly recommend. Reykjavik's famous church is 2 mins away. The rooms are small for a single but luck out and got a double. Beds are very comfortable. Shared bath is convenient -- five rooms per floor with one bathroom per floor.

The guesthouse is in a convenient location - close to the Hallgrímskirkja Church - but was very peaceful. The owner was very accommodating, waiting up for us even though we only arrived at 1am. Breakfast is simple but tasty (bread, cheese, ham, eggs and cereal). our room was clean and tidy with a nice view over the garden.

Considering the prices of hotels in Reykjavik, this is a great value option.

Loki 101 Guesthouse has a very good location and it's cost-effective. Reykjavik's accommodations are quite pricey so this nice, cozy place was a great delight. We stayed at the top level, there was three bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Rooms and shared bathroom was very clean and the whole guesthouse was quiet. It was easy to get back to the guesthouse as the tallest building(Hallgrimskirkja) in Reykjavik is located right next to the guesthouse.

I slept there during my last stay in Reykjavik. The housekeeper very kind and friendly. The guesthouse clean and cosy. The common kitchen nice and big. All facilities in the guesthouse clean and comfortable.
The location just great, ca. 100m from the Hallgrímskirkja (Hallgrim's Church) which became not only the symbol of Reykjavik but it's very near to the city center.
