House of spirits


Our aim is to offer perfect accommodation for as low price as possible. We welcome our guests to studio-apartments where you have your own fully equipped kitchenette and a small private en-suit bathroom – and to bigger apartments.

We put all importance on a perfectly clean and welcoming apartment at your arrival. Our beds are from the most respected hotel-bed-manufacturer in Iceland, selling their beds to the majority of all better hotels in the country. We provide for free the basics for your breakfast: Coffee, tea, milk, muesli, butter and jam, oil, sugar and spices. A grocery store and a good bakery are in two minutes walking distance. If you prefer, you can have full breakfast in your kitchen, for reasonable price. Than you would have furthermore bread, cheese, ham, eggs, tomatoes, yogurt, orange juice and fruits.

By our efforts to offer the lowest price, we skip the headboard to our beds, we buy all furniture, interior and household things at IKEA (except the beds) – and we keep employees as few as possible. That is why we do not make your beds or clean your bathroom every day, nor do we take out your garbage. We leave it up to you to keep your apartment in good shape! For a longer stay, we change bed-linen every seventh night – and our guests can have new towels every day if they like (though we recommend a shift every third day in respect of the environment).


In summer time we are three persons working at the house – two efficient assistants and the host Gunnar Halldorsson. We do all our best to give our guests personal service and make them feel like at a friend’s place. Gunnar, as a professional tourist guide, loves to sit down with his guests, giving them advices on what to see and what to do. If you wish, we also take care of bookings of tours and excursions, or of whatever activities and restaurants, without any commission.

In all our studios there is a strong wireless Internet connection, free of charge.

For guests staying at our house at the beginning and at the end of a longer trip in Iceland, we offer a storage room for extra luggage, free of charge.

A private excursion with Gunnar, in a private vehicle, could be practical in price if you are three persons or more. As a tourist guide, speaking English, French and Scandinavian languages, Gunnar is specialized in geology, history and culture. For many years he has also worked as a university professor in Icelandic language and literature.
