A really amazing value! Only 10 minutes walk from the city center, we chose to stay at Alba for 5 nights during a recent trip. We were planning on moving locations, but liked Alba so much that we extended our stay!
Rooms are clean and pleasant, though in typical Reykjavik fashion rather sparse. Shared bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helpful, more than willing to help us talk through itineraries and give recommendations. The breakfast was great-- coffee was French press and tea provided in an individual teapot. Generous portions and freshly baked bread also included. Alba was a very small guesthouse, and it felt close to being in your own home.
Next trip to Reykjavik, I'll be at Alba.
