Birta Guesthouse - Egilsstaðir - Bedroom

Overview Reviews

8.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in the 'annexe', a two room standalone building next to the main guesthouse. These two rooms have their own bathroom facilities and private entrance. The room was light & bright, modern, quiet. Wifi and parking were great. We had a microwave, toaster & kettle, table & 2 chairs. Bed was comfortable and the room was warm (despite the heating being turned off, it was almost too warm for us)
Cons: The room had a microwave, toaster & kettle , but there were only cups & glasses provided- no plates or cutlery, nor any sponge to wash dishes or teatowel to dry dishes. Although we recognise we could have gone over to the main house to the shared kitchen to get plates etc, the idea of having a kitchenette is that you can be independent, have breakfast in your pyjamas etc, so that would have defeated the purpose. Perhaps the owner could consider leaving a basic kit of plates/ cutlery and something to wash & dry them with- I didn't like having to dry the cups etc with my bath towel!!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was at the American Diner just along the road from the Guesthouse and this was good. There is a well equipped kitchen in the Guesthouse. The rooms were comfortable.
9.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent

8.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in the annex with private bath, it was a nice room, comfortable sitting area, small kitchenette for basic breakfast needs (using the kitchen in the main house was an option) and a well designed small shower that worked remarkably well. It was nicely quiet, in a good location. Most Dining option were in walking distance.
Cons: The mattresses in the small beds were a bit bouncy and tilting and not very comfortable. The sink in the bathroom was so small, could not wash my face without wetting my feet. We had only one hand towel for 2, fine for 1 night but we stayed 3. There were also no basic cleaning option provided in the kitchenette and we had to buy some paper towels.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent guesthouse! very easy check in, we were running late and were worried we won't be able to check in but that was not a problem at all! Room was spacious and spotless clean. Two bathrooms, large kitchen with all necessary things. Everything really clean. I would definitely recommend this place

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very cosy and super clean house with a great kitchen (which we did not use). Very quiet area, parking for free in front of the house.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was a very clean hotel with a large bathroom (also very clean). Excellent TV from which we could watch the Wimbledon final - great reception. Breakfast was extra and we chose to go out for coffee instead. Central location in a picturesque town. Very comfortable bed and a nice lobby area with a happy hour in the bar.
Cons: Breakfast was not complimentary even though many other smaller hotels provide the meal. The outdoors was a little noisy since we were facing a street but it worked out fine. Overall, there was little to dislike.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: we came on a windy rainy day at 11 - because we couldn't do anything outside in that weather. I know that check in time is 14 ! never in my life I expect that the lady in the reception will say - come back at 14 !!!! she didn't say i'll try my best come back at 13:59 , she didn't say - you can seat in the lobby . . . she didn't try anything - she send us back to the rainy windy cold ugly day . i'll never come back to this hotel and none of my friend. we have been in this hotel in 2016.

Cons: We know the water smells like sulfur, but it was a lot worse here than the other 3 hotels we stayed at prior. We had to open the window and try to air the place out. The soaps smelled flowery/citrus so that helped when you were physically in the shower.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff and great view.
Cons: Pillows was to hard.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location in Egilsstaðir, it made the perfect base to explore the eastern region for a couple of days. Staying with a toddler, I appreciated the small box of toys he could play with and the fact that there is an ice cream shop across the street and a small playground around the corner.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and the best equipped kitchen we've seen in an Icelandic guest house. Inside is very modern and well kept with comfortable beds, good showers and excellent blackout curtains. There was sufficient space in the communal area for 4 groups to all eat simultaneously.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lyngas guesthouse was extremely quiet, located in the center of town, and very, very comfortable!
Cons: The exterior was a little run-down, but they are actively working on repainting the front, so in the future this will likely not apply.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a room for four which had a double bed and bunk beds. The room was large, so plenty of space. The bathrooms are shared, but there are ample across the two floors. There is a large equipped kitchen on the ground floor if you want to prepare your own food, we didn't take advantage of this as there are numerous restaurants in Egilstadir within easy walking distance. They do offer a breakfast for an additional fee, but its at another hotel, so we headed for the American Diner which is opposite the hotel and we liked. Don't be put off by the exterior of the building, which makes it look a little run-down , inside is very clean and tidy and nicely decorated. The reception was friendly and as we were staying twice they allowed us to store some bits and pieces with them.
4.5 Okay
Pros: The facility was clean. The location was good
Cons: It was ezfemely noisy. Too many people newsws to share rhe kitchen and showers. The room was too small and we didn't have enoughfloor space to put our items. There were workers doing construction work early in the mornings to boot.

7.0 Good
Pros: Easy to checkin / checkout. Free parking near the house for 4 cars and also on the other side of the road. Bathroom was shared but very clean, rooms were also neat and tidy. Bars, diners, restaurants in a walking distance.
Cons: there is a shared kitchen and one of the guests was cooking dinner and the whole building was smelling bad, we had to escape and went to a bar
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location.
7.5 Good
Pros: Everything, except for the breakfast, was simple and correct. As we haven’t seen the staff, difficult to evaluate, but everything is organized very well (check-in, check-out, vouchers for breakfast ...).
Cons: You have to go to a nearby restaurant for the breakfast (no problem here). But waiting for 55 minutes for your breakfast is unacceptable especially if you have got time constraints.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Good kitchen, but smoke alarm went off when fellow guests were cooking and it took a very long time to turn it off. The entire house smelled of smoke for the rest of the evening. Unfortunate but nothing faulty towards the owners.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Check in was super simple and convenient. The kitchen was nice to have available and was very equipped. Room was clean and had everything we needed and expected. We were on the main floor which had 2 showers, and there were no issues. Loved the map of Iceland on the kitchen table. We paid for breakfast, and it was served off a menu at the diner across the street. It had some choices, including eggs with bacon, or waffles, or pancakes, but items such as eggs Benedict or eggs with bacon and potatoes were excluded from available options with our voucher.
Cons: More breakfast options would have been nice (the three best options on the diner menu were not available with our breakfast voucher from the guesthouse), but we had coffee and waffles and they were fine.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice accommodation in good area. Full kitchen and fridge. Room was big and bed was comfortable.
Cons: We were told that we'd receive a code to the lockbox by email, which did not occur. Thankfully of the 3 guests that arrived around the same time, one of them received a code so she helped us in. There was a number to call if we needed it but it would have been nice to receive the code as described in the email. Also, we were going to cook something in the oven and that just filled the kitchen with smoke as soon as we turned the oven on. After clearing the smoke for 5 minutes, I decided to use to microwave. It's probably time to clean the inside of your oven. Other than the inside of the oven, everything else was very clean.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: very comfortable beds. fridge in room. good coffee.
Cons: noisy entrance door
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location. Clean. Decent sized rooms and a good value for Iceland. It's a house. Walls a bit thin, but certainly OK.
Cons: I didn't like getting instructions on how to get in the day before arriving. My wife and I were on vacation. We didn't know how to get in. I'd left my phone charger at a previous stop (we were 11 days into our trip by then). This isn't cool-requiring someone to have a device; a power converter; etc Need a better way to do this. We had to go find someone with a phone and ask if we could use it - only HOPING the owners finally sent an email telling us how to get in.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: kitchen nice and big room nice garden book with lots of expanations about restaurants, the area...very well organised
Cons: shower to share although private toilet

8.8 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable beds...excellent shower and location
Cons: The only thing that would have been helpful would be some blackout curtains...we came in July when there is 24 hour daylight...found it hard to sleep
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good location, comfortable.
Cons: Nothing to dislike!
6.8 Good
Pros: Good place, with good services but no breakfast and the fridge in the room was not functional.
5.0 Okay
Pros: We went into Eglisstadir to have breakfast, there is none available on site.
Cons: There is absolutely NO ventilation at this property. The room was decent enough, but the only way to get any air in the place is to crack the transom on (bottom side of) the front window. There is no corresponding opening on the backside to get ventilation. We went to Iceland to escape Texas heat only to nearly suffocate in a room with no air circulation. In addition, our toilet would not stop running after flushing. This annoyed not only us, but probably the people in the next room as well. The host did respond immediately when I reported the toilet problem, but unfortunately did not have the parts to fix before we checked out 2 days later.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, just about 30 seconds from the ring Road ;) We received the code for the keybox just a few days in advance and everything went smoothly. The apartment was nice, spacious and very clean. It had a good bathroom where you had a lot of space to put your stuff. The hosts left a handy file with all the necessary information (about them, things to do, places to eat, ...). The room itself was a lot nicer than shown on their pictures!
6.3 Good
Cons: The showers, hot water smelt like sulfur. Heating in the room was way too hot- tried to turn it down but it didnt change the temperature . Walls are super thin so can hear everything your neighbours are doing.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good sized room. Comfortable beds. Provision of microwave and fridge.
Cons: Microwave turntable didn’t work properly.
6.8 Good
Pros: A self contained guest house with most of what we needed.
Cons: It was ok though looks like it could use a little outside painting. Short of some items in kitchenette. Was a little out of town.

5.0 Okay
Pros: But come on... this place offered no breakfast, so get your reply form in order or more intelligent.
Cons: Iceland obviously has a tourist boom. Over 10 days around the country, we got the impression that every available bed is rented out and all are taken, thus prices are outrageous, and not in line iwth anything elsewehre in the world. Thsi may be a reason for a re-think or a reason for being proud of being different again from the rest of the world... but reality will knock on the Icelandic tourist office door soon. Here we have a recent establishment with a gues thouse, nicely furnished and comfy. But hte kitchen is miserably under-equipped, and the pods - whiel new, are cold, and toilet facilities are a 100 m walk away, with no lightning, and this is just not acceptable at those prices. The lady runnign the site has taken over recnelty, and I wish her good luck bu tshe needs to upgrade facilities.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It's a new experience for us to stay in a camping pod. And it exceeds our expectation definitely. The pod is big enough for two people and clean. It has good views through the windows.

Pros: Everything was good. Good nights sleep, not too cold, lovely with heater. Nice bed lining and good space.
