Reviewed 12 August 2010

With apologies to Arny this was a dissappointment. We booked this guesthouse* because the Thorshamar, and Eyjar were both booked (Heimaey is very short on rooms --- for now at least).

There is virtually no privacy... we had an 80sq ft. room with a slanted ceiling, and a shower downstairs for 75 Euro! IF YOU ARE OVER 6 FT TALL I WOULD AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS.

We have rated low for cleanliness... there is one shower - it was filthy. It also contained personal (and private) bathroom products which are NOT what you want to see when you have paid to stay in someone's house.

Although Arny was polite and honest, I do not think that she totally understands the concept here. It is not a free lunch.

I would avoid if you can, but book if you have to.

Reviewed 14 April 2008

I stayed for one night in the Guesthouse Arny (Gistiheimilið Árný) upon recommendation of a friend. Its located about 5 minutes walk from the ferry port. The Westman Islands are so small (just 4x7m) that everywhere is close by. The swimming pool was just 100 meters away and the start of the lava fields about 10 mins walk.
The accommodation is split over 2 floors. I was in the ground floor (a basement of sorts) which had 2 bedrooms and a shared kitchen and bathroom. The beds were ok, not very comfortable; there was a TV (with English channels); but the room was very basic. But then again I think all accommodation on Vestmannaeyjar probably is.
The self catering facilities are a great idea as there are few restaurants on Vestmannaeyjar and they are expensive – I recommend Pizza 67 as being cheap and nice.
Overall good experience. The lady that runs it was friendly and the price (ISK 4,000) did seem too high.
