Owner was friendly and bedsheets were clean.
Wrong location on Google maps. Remote area. Noisy room next to generator. Old, excentric house. Outdated bathrooms, with shared showers, shower drain plugged food was not edible (frozen burger and soaked in oil fries with expired ingredients at the table). No blackout curtains and available curtain did not block entire window ( Icelandic summer has 21hrs of sunlight)
A rare gem with unique atmosphere. We liked every single minute of our stay at Himnasvalir. Spacious rooms, good interior decor, cozy corners to sit here and there, tasty food.
The owner and his assistant were extremely kind and we enjoyed talking to them about Iceland. The sweet dog had five puppies and based on that alone, our kids rated it the best place they stayed in Iceland!
An eccentric but lovely house, with a genial host. The room was huge and well equipped with a wonderful double bed. Breakfast was very good and varied. WiFi worked perfectly. The downside is the quality and size of the towels, plus the location is very remote (4km down a gravel road away from everything) it may not suit everyone. And DO NOT use Google Maps with the name of the Guest house because you will end up 25km away at another hotel. I had a delicious lamb soup upon arrival in the evening.
Towels and the location may be too remote for some.
Breakfast quite good. Cleanliness is at top notch. Kate and the staff is very welcoming and friendly.
The shower duct was blocked and water started overflowing from the shower cabin. I had to close the shower tap multiple times to avoid water flow to the bathroom floor. I think this is bit overpriced comparing to other hotels I stayed around Iceland.
Located in Skagafjörour, Guesthouse Himnasvalir is a 1-minute drive from Tourist Information Centre for Northwest Iceland and 6 minutes from Skagafjordur Folk Museum. Free self parking is available onsite.
