Overall a good experience. What I liked: large room with simple but comfortable furnishings. A quiet neighborhood. A well stocked kitchen for the guests to share,The price we paid was fair.
What I did not like: the shared but clean bathroom sometimes was inconvenient and it took us longer to get ready due to the wait. It was about a 10-12 minute walk to the city center to get a bite to eat, nothing really closer. we spent three nights but never saw the host or hostess while there which I thought was a little odd.

Room Tip: Our room on the upper floor near the bath was a nice choice

Located within a quite surroundings, Askot Guesthouse provides basis amenities to stay in peace. It has fully equipped kitchen and washroom, which come handy to families. Free Wifi is a plus.
However, it has a flip side, too. A single bathroom cum toilet for 9 rooms is a definite minus. You can't have emergencies in this scenario (thinking about someone not keeping well, or kids and seniors); which can be stressful.

Room Tip: Room 902 is the best.

The guest house has great rooms in Reykjavik's Old West End, a rather elegant neighborhood. Downtown is a five minute walk. The bathroom was large and even when the guest house was full there was no issue. There is also a really nice kitchen to cook.

First of all this place is now named Askot Guesthouse, since the breakfast has been cancelled.

Positive: the rooms are spacious, clean, and the bed is good. The price is good, but don't be fooled

Negative:
The house only has 1 combined toilet and shower, which is far from enough for 9 rooms, some with triple occupancy. My Icelandic is scetchy, but I think they are only allowed 10 guests, but while we stayed minimum was 12 guests. And their promise of better facilities seems hollow.

There is absolutely no sound proofing in the house, you can hear the conversation and snorring in the next room. And guest arriving late, going to the toilet, and getting up early are sure to wake you, so you will not get a good nights sleep here, and afterall, that is what we book accomodation to get.

We stayed here on a mini-break to Iceland. It's good value for money and the location is great - quiet residential neighbourhood only a few streets from the Old Harbour.

The floors throughout the guesthouse are wooden and very noisy. This is further compounded by the absence of a bathroom on the ground floor, forcing guests to troop up the stairs in the night to use the toilet.

The hostess was very accommodating about our late arrival (1am).
