Brattagata Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Brattgata is a in the heart of Reykjavik and a perfect place to stay for a few days. We arranged to stay in the two bedroom basement apartment which also had a living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, shower room and separate bathroom. We didn't want to stay in a large hotel but rather in a more intimate setting and this was it. It was homey and very cozy and we truly enjoyed our stay. Ingunn welcomed us with open arms and was extremely gracious, patient and kind as she rearranged her schedule to accommodate our arrival time which we changed at the last minute. She went well beyond the call of duty and we will never be able to thank her enough for warm hospitality and providing for our every need. You, Ingunn, are a very special person.
Brattgata is certainly central with the drop off from and pick up to the airport, tours, information, shopping, restaurants, bars and other attractions right at your finger tips.

Brattagata guesthouse is a wonderful place for staying in Reykjavik. The guesthouse is in the center of the town, just 5 minutes walk from the core of the city.
The owner, Ingunn, is a lovely person. She is welcoming and always ready to help the visitors in their trip.
The breakfast is excellent and is made of a broad choice of bread, jams, meat, fish...
Two rooms are located in part of the building equipped with a living room, small kitchenette and a shared bathroom.
An excellent address in Reykjavik !

Ingunn was so nice. Very welcoming. I enjoyed chatting and getting to know her at breakfast.

The breakfast was great with lost of variety - cheese,cold cuts, eggs, smoked fish, bread with jams.

The location was also excellent. Right next to the Plaza hotel- all of the tour buses pick up right there in front of the Plaza. You can walk to everything very easily.

The room was clean and comfortable and very quiet.

I highly recommend the Brattagata Guesthouse

Brattagata guesthouse is perfectly located in the center of Reykjavik: shops, supermarket, bars and restaurants, tourist information, hop on and drop off point of the flybus are all just around the corner. It's a short walk to the harbour. We stayed in the basement which is a small apartment: two bedrooms, a bathroom, a large kitchen with a fridge, utensils and pans, dishwasher, coffeemaker, washing machine/tumble dryer. In the (shared) livingroom are a dining table, chairs, a couch and tv. Everything was clean and it was always warm in the apartment. Free wifi. Private carpark. Best of all: Ingunn the host, she is very kind and makes a delicious breakfast! If we visit Reykjavik again we will be staying here!

We were traveling around Iceland and this was our first and last stop. This guesthouse was the best accommodation we had (quality vs. price).
Great host and perfect location with shops/restaurants nearby.
Spacious rooms, well equipped shared rooms (especially kitchen).
Living room full of nice publications about Iceland which gave us perfect tips for trips.
Photo my wife made from terrace of this house don`t need more comments :)

My recent stay at Brattagata Guesthouse was definitely one of the main highlights on a 3 week European adventure. The guesthouse is located in the old part of the city, close to all major attractions. Ingunn was extremely helpful in advising us on activities for our short two day stay. Our room was spacious, warm, and meticulously clean. Breakfasts were wonderful, including smoked salmon, muesli and yogurt, fruit, breads, and sometimes eggs. Ingunn was kind e out to make us an early breakfast before we left for the airport at 6:30am. She is truly a jewel. Her grandchildren are also always happy to help out and provided a wonderful family experience. This truly a gem in Reykjavik and a highlight of our trip. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
