Reykjavik Peace Center - Guesthouse

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was greeted on a snowy night by housekeeper not with "hello" or an offer to help bring in bags, but a demand to remove shoes (I was obviuosly still bringing in bags). Whenever we went in and out, housekeeper cracked door open to peep, peep, peep -- but no greeting, no hello, no small talk. V creepy. Discovered we paid 20+ euros/night more than previous guest by his receipt still lying on uncleaned table. Weak wifi. Communal bathroom with door that doesn't lock. Bathroom door opens to curtainless shower. No door separating rooms in 2-room "suite." Hostel experience at hotel prices. You become a "peace ambassador" thru credit card. How pretentious! 10km outside town. Keep looking.

Really enjoyed our stay here. We found it very quite and with a baby we enjoyed having the room to let her move around. The price was very good, about 1/2 what we would have paid had we stayed in a hotel.

This guesthouse overbooks its rooms. You make a reservation, are debited (potentially twice), but are liable to find your room unavailable when you arrive, and they refuse to offer a refund. TO AVOID AT ANY COST

So a few things people should know. 1, It's communal bathroom & toilet. 2, There appears to be no housekeeping (3 night stay, no new towels or beds made/sheets changed). 3, You'll need a car. It's a good 15 minutes drive from town. 4, Parking can get limited. Caretaker is friendly enough and willing to tell you all you need to know about the area, and beds were comfy enough. Rooms are basic (bed, side table, lamp and that's it). No issues with any other guests making noise when we stayed there. So if you're looking for a place to just sleep, it's perfect. If you're looking for anything like a B&B or better, you'll be quite disappointed.

The guest house is a very nice building with lovely areas to sit and read. Two well stocked kitchens and very comfortable beds. There are multiple shared baths. Its a 10 minute drive from Reykjavik centre and there are busses going there two times an hour in daytime and evenings. The area is very peaceful and the staff very friendly. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this to anyone who are able to cook their own meals and prefer a hassle-free accommodation.

We stayed here 10 days in juli/august 2017. At first glance the place might seem allright. Our room was very small (as expected) and only thing in there was a small table, a closet with 4 hangers and some terrible curtains which did nothing to keep the light out (from a place where the sun never really sets in the summertime). Several times we had to take out the garbage ourself because housekeeper did not. The fridges had a lot of old food (and bad smell). There was no system to handle food from all the different guests or no regular cleanup of old food. Housekeeper was not very friendly and did a lousy job cleaning, e.g. toilets and baths were cleaned superficial and even complained to me that some guests complained about the cleaning. The selfservice checkin meant no staff. You were lucky if you got to meet the housekeeper when he did his non-daily cleanup. It's terrible that if you need any help you need to write an email to the owner and then wait up to one day for a reply. This place really need to change things to make it work.

I stayed there with family for 4 days.Guest house located about 10 min drive to the city centre. Very clean,but look tired outside ,good few jobs needs to be done around the house. Alice is looking after the place,she is so friendly and extremely helpful!She made my family stay so special!!We hope to see you again some day!

Located on quiet cul-de-sac in suburban Reykjavik; easy 10 minute drive to town. Best described as a youth hostel for grown-ups. Big bathtub. Spacious sitting areas. Functional kitchen. Kind resident-receptionist-caretaker. Only small hassle: slow, sometimes plodding internet (and in a country that touts itself as the most "connected" in Europe . . .)

We stayed only one night and arrived very late, but spent most of the morning there. We were sent an email in advance with detailed instructions how to open the door and where to find the key for our room. Our room and the bathroom were warm, clean and comfortable. The place is very nice and cozy with lots of corners where you can sit to relax or have breakfast. The entrance and kitchen were a bit messy, but it was obvious that there are refurbishment works and the owners apologised when they saw us in the morning. We also got some tips for our trip and as we were just starting it was helpful.

We had a wonderful time in The peace center where we stayed for two nights. The place was peaceful, clean and quite. But what I loved the most was all the grate arts they had on the walls. Absolutely a lovely place to stay for fair price. Greetings from Copenhagen :)
