“Best guesthouse in Iceland! Clean, luxurious and fantastic breakfast. ”

“Most beautiful, luxurious and comfy guesthouse we have ever visited! A friendly and helpful owner, who helped us with things to see in the area and prepared the most delicious breakfast. The room had the comfiest beds and we slept better than any other night in our 8 days in Iceland. Our only regret is that we only had one night there so there wasn’t enough time to try the outdoor spa 🙂 We highly recommend staying here and relax in the beautiful surroundings!”

Relaxing, country atmosphere, great food and kind hosts

“I had my dream vacation at Asar Guesthouse. The relaxing, country atmosphere, great food and kind hosts allowed me to finish my book in peace and even start outlining another one!
This is absolutely the perfect place to stay for anyone wanting to feel at home and let their worries melt away. I will definitely stay here again.”

“Clean, comfortable, beautiful rooms.”

“My wife and I stayed at this guest house in the summer of 2017. It was not only the best place we stayed in all of Iceland, it was the best place we’ve stayed in all our travels thus far. Clean, comfortable, beautiful rooms. Excellent food. Exceptional host. I’ve not a single complaint to offer and when we return to Iceland it is our hope to spend much more time in the north in large part due to our overwhelmingly positive experience at this guest house. We just hope the place isn’t booked solid when we get around to planning the next trip!”
