The house

Akurholt Guesthouse is a 106m2 and is located only 14 km away from the center of Reykjavik. It is situated on a beautiful hillside and has a cozy country atmosphere.

The whole house can comfortably accommodate 9 people in four bedrooms. It has a big well equipped kitchen and a living room, shared bathroom with two toilets and a shower room.

The house has four rooms. The rooms are small – but the house has big common areas where you can meet other travelers, cook your dinner and enjoy life. The house has two toilets and one shower-room. In front of the house is a nice patio and in the backyard we have mount Úlfarsfell.
More about our surroundings can be found here.

We often say that the true owner of the house is Elsa – our cat, she lives in the house and goes in and out as she feels. Most of our guests have fallen in love with Elsa and she probably gets more reviews than the human do. We also often bring our Lagotto Romagnolo dogs with us.

During the winter months in Iceland the weather can be unpredictable, so please consider a well-equipped car, such as a 4×4, if you plan to drive anywhere outside of the city of Reykjavik, including to our guesthouse.

We hope that your stay in Akurholt will be as good experience for you as it has been for us, and that you feel connected to the place and will return again – next time you travel to Iceland.
