We have just opened this amazing guesthouse in Iceland. After painstakingly restoring the 100 year old home in the heart of downtown. It has private rooms but shared bathroom on each floor. There's a comfortable common room and lots of old charm.

The space
Túngata 8 was originally built in 1915 by a local businessman. It's part of the very historic "Grjótaþorp" in downtown Reykjavik. Just around the corner was the original settlement of the area dating back to 871 AD.

Guest access
The listing includes your own private suite in the house (Number 3), with two beds (90cm each). We can configure it to be either combined (180cm) or separated. There is a comfortable common room with TV and a fully stocked kitchen. There's a bathroom on each floor as well as 4 showers in the house.
