Áslaug´s Accommodation – Faktorshus Hæstakaupstað

Please contact for prices and booking information.

Accommodation, Isafjordur, Iceland. Rooms with shared facilities, a room with private facilities, made up beds.

I am offering accommodation in 2 different houses, and they both have various combinations, so actually this is a place for one single person and up to 16 persons at the time. I know this is quite complex, and that’s why I can’t name an exact price here on the listing. The rate pr.person is FROM IKR. 5.150, in a shared room, sleepingbag accommodation. I am happy to answer all your questions, so feel free to write me!

In the guesthouse: Rooms with wash basins, shared bathrooms and a kitchen at the corridor. Made up bed in a double room, or sleeping bag accommodation. Single room, made up bed, Double, triple or family rooms.

In the other house: Made up beds that sleeps 2-4 persons and has wi-fi. That house is one of The oldest houses in Iceland! One guest said it was like staying in the National Museum of Iceland, just more comfortable! It’s a gem and you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to experience it.

Both houses are well located in The Center of Ísafjörður, wich is also one of the oldest towns, in The oldest part of Iceland. Yet the location is free from downtown traffic noice.

My accoommodation and I have been mentioned in various guidebooks, including The Rough Guide to Iceland. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
Guest House in Isafjordur, West Fjords, Iceland – The guesthouse ?Gistiheimili Áslaugar? has been open since 1989 and is the oldest guesthouse in Ísafjörður.

At Áslaug’s guesthouse there are single-, double- and family rooms, with wash basin, shared bathrooms and a kitchen at the corridor.
In 1993 Áslaug and her husband bought the Factor?s House in Hæstakaupstaður, just next door to the guesthouse itself. The Factor?s House was built by a group of Norwegians traders in 1788 after the abolition of the trading monopoly in Iceland.They built eight houses in Ísafjörður and the Factor?s House is the only one still standing. In 1975 it became a protected building. In December 2001 the owners opened a restaurant and a cafeteria in The Factor´s House after a major renovation both on the inside and the outside. The Factor´s House is on two floors and beautifully decorated. The main diningroom is on groundfloor but on the upper floor is a nice dining room that fits perfectly f. ex. for a small company meetings.

In 2005 an apartment/suite/a room with private facilities opened after futher renovations in the Factor´s House.
