The Old Post Office

Jóa Guesthouse connects people and places

In Ólafsfjördur, on the Troll peninsula, a cherry-red heart is beating for guests and travellers. Jóa Guesthouse, in the middle of this beautiful North Iceland town, can easily  be found, due to its bright red colour. Once having stepped inside, you don’t want to leave.

They offer six elegant rooms on the first f loor, all of which are furnished with a different type of wooden f loor, that refer back to the old times and which have gained much attention. You will find brand new comfortable beds, basins, closets, and, of course, free WiFi. Dark curtains in front of every window will guarantee a good sleep even through bright Icelandic summer nights. The two bathrooms on the floor are fully equipped.

When you wake in the morning and open your curtains, you will enjoy the amazing panorama across the bay. Then, to start the day off right, you head downstairs into Kaffi Klara, the just recently opened book-café, where guests are served a delicious buffet breakfast to get ready for their day.
If you need any help with your plans or directions, you can find any assistance you need at the desk. It is like the old post office has come to a pulsating new life as a place for connecting people and places.
