They recently moved to Iceland because they truly love this stunning country.

Our little gem has just received the 2016 Traveller’s Choice Award from TripAdvisor and we are proud to be No.3 of all guesthouses in Iceland and No. 1 in Keflavik. We are proud to be also Keflavik’s No.1 on booking.com based on more than 500 reviews.

Ecological Guesthouse 1×6 was created by local artist Daniel Hjörtur Sigmundsson, who creates out of what he has in his hands at any given time, reusing, recycling, creating an alternative to whatever is inside the box, refined and polished. His aim was to to make a difference in creating an environment that gives people the feeling of love, care, warmth and that we should always put an effort to our everyday life, it is the now that matters.

Attention to detail is paramount and the wellbeing of our guests ensured by the singular choice of building material, 1×6 is the size in inches of the timber used to create the unique interior.

You are invited to enjoy the one of a kind thermal bath in the garden with a temperature of around 40° Celsius.

Along with even more details and services of the owners as well as a highly rated deluxe breakfast with homemade bread and maybe the best coffee in Iceland, Guesthouse 1×6 is a real gem. We believe that at this house, you will feel very comfortable and simply happy.

Guesthouse 1×6 is located right next to the sea and the oldest houses of Keflavik town center.
