We stayed 5 nights at the Bed and Books guest-house, mid April this year and literally loved it!
The hosts, Karlotta and Hughes, were the friendliest and most helpful people we have ever met. They made us feel very welcome. They speak many different languages, which could be quite helpful for some travellers (Icelandic, French, English, German...)
They recommended many "tourists-free" hidden gems to see and visit, all of them great.
Places like the Seabaron restaurant, which is just an amazing place to eat in Reykjavik, or the US Air Force plane wreck on the black sand beaches near Vik, south Iceland, and many other wonders with spectacular views. I let you discover them, sure your hosts will help you :)
One evening, Karlotta even ran inside the house to tell us to go outside as there were northern lights, and that was so lovely from her. What a spectacular show that was, i still have goosebumps just thinking about it!
The house is perfectly located in a quiet street close to literally everything.
The national airport (flights to Iceland and Greenland) is next door, however don't be afraid, you will not even notice it believe me!
The bus station is 10min walk away, this will bring you to the Keflavik international airport in less than 45min. The city center is 10min walk away too, the beach literally next door.
The house itself is an old but beautiful Icelandic house, you will feel at home as soon as get in.
There is books everywhere around the house, in many different languages, there is many places to seat down comfortably and relax, read, drink a glass of wine, listen to music after a long day out.
Our room was lovely and very cosy, beds really comfortable, we definitely had everything we needed.
I was literally captivated by Iceland, this is such an incredible and powerful place, and I'm already planning a return trip as soon as possible, there is so much to see.
We have loved our stay at the Bed & Books very much and would totally recommend it to everyone.
Thanks, Karlotta & Hughes, for making our trip so special. I hope to come back soon!
