Accommodations in Iceland
Everything in Iceland has got a pricetag so the same counts for the accommodations. Even the hostel I took costs just over 35 euro and I was sleeping in a dorm! I did got a breakfast for that…something I didn’t got at the guesthouse.
I rented a car and so I did a little roadtrip and so took two nights outside of Reykjavik.
Accommodations Reykjavik – Skolabru
Situated in the heart of Reykjavik
Accommodations Iceland – Idglo
Bed and Breakfast Idglo 49 pn
I also was one night in Idglo, a nice bed and breakfast just outside the city centre of Reykjavik. It is like living in Reykjavik for a moment. You are in a suburb of the city and you’ll see the Iceland citizins coming home from work. I really liked the feeling of that!
As if you are living in Reykjavik!!
I had a room on the bottomfloor, almost under ground. we had a shared bathroom. It was good kept and clean and I especially liked the homely atmosphere. I got a good tip to go to on my roadtrip. The man who worked there had driven there himself and gave me coordinates for a hotpot and the name of a farm where I could stop and see a seal. And I saw both! How great is that!
There was WiFi available for free and in room.
Accommodations in Iceland – 4th Floor
Hotel 4th Floor 41,25 pn
This hotel is situated in a big building with some other hotels. It has a restaurant and a lounge area downstairs. I got a room on the 2nd floor (?). I think that if you got a bit of claustrophobia you wouldn’t like this hotel and these hallways. It was kind of a labyrinth walking here for the first time. From the elevator to my room I had to open three different doors which all gave me entrance to small halls. When something happens, safety wise, you have to take those doors again.
In my small hallway were 4 or 5 rooms. I didn’t think it was really a bit complicated. The hall was not really clean and there was a cleaners car standing in there too. I heard noises all evening, they were still building in the building so maybe when you visit in 2 or 3 months things are changed.
All the Luxury you’ll need in a small room for Low Cost
The bathroom was good too. Small but clean and nice, had all I needed. The shower takes really long to get hot but it will and gets hot! I love a hot shower…especially when it is cold outside.
Breakfast was included and because my flight was early next day I got a breakfast to go. In the evening it was delivered to my room. It had two sandwiches with ham and cheese, a desert (with spoon) and a small drink. Very good.
You should have WiFi all over the place but somehow for me it only worked at the downstairs lounge/reception area..
Accommodation Iceland Golden Circle – Grund
Guesthouse Fludir – Grund 70 pn
After seeing the natural park, Thingvellir, the impressive Geyser and Strokkur and the big Golden waterfall I didn’t took the short cut back to Reykjavik but went to the Secret lagoon to relax in this hot natural bath in Fludir. I had a great swim, it is not as touristic as the blue lagoon and there isn’t that particular white and blue colour as you probably know of the blue lagoon. Because of this it is not that busy and you don’t pay that much to take a relaxing dip in the hot water.
After the bath I had a cup of coffee and the lady asked me where I was sleeping. I could use their internet and was searching the internet already. She had a good option for me and told me to go to Fludir and after the gasstation was a great bed and breakfast called Grund.
When I came there I saw a couple of wooden cabins together. Looking better I saw it was one bigger building. In those first parts were rooms and the second part was the restaurant. I went in there and ofcourse they had a room for me said the nice lady.
Real Icelandic Cosyness in this wooden Guesthouse
Accommodations Iceland – Grund
There was free WiFi all over the bed and breakfast.
Accommodations Iceland – Vid Hafid
Hostel Vid Hafid 35 pn
After riding through this great nature park I stopped in Olafsvik. I found the hostel Vid Hafid, it is visible from the mainroad and is situated on the topfloor above some shops. It is really good kept and I think it is new. The entrance is situated on the back of the shop and had no sign so I searched for it. They said me to make one for the future costumers.
Clean and nice Hostel with a Helpful lady
I could get some(senseo) coffee and sit in the mainroom. There were lots of chairs and tables. There was also a televisionroom with a couch where you could relax. In the morning I got a fresh cup coffee and could get some cornflakes with milk or a cracker with jam. Not much but a good start of the day as it was included! There was also a kitchen you could use, the Asian that were there also used it the night before and were baking again in the morning!
Right next to this hostel is a gasstation, I had some diner there. In the villages I visited there were no restaurants open, wintertime? but there were snacks like French fries with meat or other dishes at the gasstation. Maybe in summertime more facilities? I don’t know, otherwise cooking your own food is a good option. There was a small supermarket in town.
There was WiFi available for free and in room too.
Iceland over all
The prices are a bit higher then I’m used too….traveling most of my time in Asia. The accomodations were really nice and comfortable. Also the people of Iceland were great. They helped me where ever they could! That is wonderful when you don’t have everything planned from a to z and didn’t search the internet for all the options. Iceland is something I would do again….especially because I didn’t got to see the Northern Lights…which was the thing that brought me to Iceland 🙂
