Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

Returned here after touring Iceland. Everything in my earlier review is the same - except the kettle was moved so that the cord will not be too close to the sink.

If we return to Iceland, we will stay here again, happily.

Convenient, comfortable and roomy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Charming A for four days. It was the most spacious guesthouse I've stayed in outside of North America. A private shower, a very wide comfortable bed and cooking facilities made it perfect for us. Even though it is only one block from the main shopping street in Reykjavik, it was quiet too, even on Culture Night.

Any problems we had were our fault. I was confused by the door instructions at first (but the owner's English is better than my Icelandic so how can I complain?) I wish people read the instructions on how to use the induction burners - they scorched some of the pans.

If there was one thing I would change it would be adding one electrical outlet near the table. This may not be possible because electric outlets seem to be associated with light switches. It means we had to plug the kettle and recharger so it was over/near the kitchen sink. It seems a bit unsafe.

Would I go back? Absolutely. I will be back in a few days at the end of my trip. And if we ever return to Iceland, we'll try to stay there again.

Clean, good location, lacking in some details

  • 3 of 5

The owner sent an email with two different addresses and the wrong key code. When I called he was impatient referencing a more recent email that hadn't caught up with us yet. Clean cramped space suitable for two. No comfy chairs only dining chairs to sit. No coffee pot or press (only hot water heater). No bath hand towels, top sheets, or bath wash clothes. New tile in bath. Overall an ok experience. Nice art on walls and lightproof drapes. Good, quiet location.

Very cramped, overfilled with beds, under equipped.

  • 2 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Reykjavik. Fortunately the weather was good so we didn't spend very many waking hours in what we came to call the (misnamed) Charming gaff. The space was so small that we couldn't contemplate cooking a meal for ourselves. Its central location was however a great bonus. So far I have not found where on the information it says check in is at 2pm. Consequently we arrived earlier than that in the freezing cold with a massive bag, unable to access "Charming".
