We have slept in the basement without view and dark room. Very dangerous in case of fire. Very expensive room with out breakfast and with shared bathroom. Sorry! But I can't recommend you this guesthouse.

Very nice view of the harbor The rest is not worth a penny Our room was in a different building than the main guesthouse, and located in the attic. One bed was ok, but the other had only 1' clearance from the ceiling. Bumped into it a few times. The room is very small, about 9'x8'. There are only the... More

Rooms are clean and beds are comfy. The shared toilet is in a separate room from the shower. There is a kitchen available. This guesthouse consists of at least 2 buildings. Quiet. Has view of the harbor.

the location was great, just by the harbour and very close to the brilliant restaurant Pakkhus. We found the appartment spacy, not up to date and not very good looked after. It was also expensive, but free parking.

We appreciated the location, however we found it was expensive for what we had. The place is ok, but there is nothing special as to say ´´ you must go there !´´ It would be better if we could had access to a kitchen or something.

(+) Convenient location. (-) Paper thin walls, you hear everything in the house. Breakfast is not included (extra 1700) for an expensive rate. Toilet seat broken. Electric wires hanging out of the wall.

Twin rooms shared bathroom no meal option. Had a TV and watched some Jimmy Falon. My wife was concerned about the security of the bathroom. It was large and spacious with two stalls coming out of a common area with two sinks. About $120 Cnd. Not a whole lot of customer attention. Too much time being spent on cell phones... More

The apartment we got is beautiful. 6 beds. A living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The view is absolutely stunning. But the entire apartment smells like an outdoor water closet. It won't go away and I think it is getting worse. 2/5. Would find a different place to stay in Höfn next time.

We chose this small guesthouse because we'd seen it had a pretty nice view of the harbour. We got it right on the part, but other than that this place is the definition of a disappointment. The guy that received us clearly didn't want to be there, the rooms and beds are below average and boy are those walls thin.... More
