Excellent 5 night stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights in late December 2016. The apartment is very well situated, only a brief walk along the Laugevegur to the center of Reykjavik where all the restaurants and shops are located. We appreciated this spacious apartment after having stayed in hotel rooms for most of the trip - it was good to have the well-equipped kitchen and the laundry room downstairs.

Communication with Gudmundur in the leadup to the trip was very good and he was always responsive to our questions. His daughter arranged to meet with us near the apartment when we arrived from the airport and gave us a very comprehensive overview of how everything worked. We had a rental car for the trip, so the parking spot in the garage of the building was much appreciated.

In addition to the main shopping district a short walk away, there are several small restaurants very close to the apartment, including a Thai place that we enjoyed. We can highly recommend Gudmundur's apartment.

Perfect property to stay in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this apartment enough - it has everything that you want for a stay in Iceland - very clean, very central, very warm, very safe environment. Gudmunder met us from the bus, carried our cases and showed us around his apartment - this apartment is 5 mins from the main street and 2 mins from Hotel Klettur - book all your trips from here. The apartment is very warm and with constant hot water - supermarkets are close by - be warned food and drink is very expensive - we took our own food with us and bought our duty free at the airport prior to travelling - this is our top tip - we did a snowmobiling/golden circle trip and also a trip to the blue lagoon (make sure you book this up in advance) - also the hop on hop off bus - get off at Perlan - beautiful café/restaurant

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment - you will save money on taxis and food bills if you go self catering - this apartment was absolutely perfect and Gudmunder was the perfect host - thanks!

You will not be disappointed if you book this apartment

Fantastic apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family of four for 3 nights in February. The apartment was very warm, spacious, clean and modern. Situated at the top of Laugavgur - the main shopping street - with bars and restaurants. A great base to do the Golden Circle. We hired a car but you don't really need one as the hotel next door is a pick up point for any excursions. It is within walking distance to down town Reykjavik, the Old Harbour with lovely fish restaurants taking about 10-20 minutes. The owner Gudmundur met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment explaining everything we needed to know. He even posted my slippers I had left!

I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Location, location , location.....PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Trust me I want to keep this gem all to myself!!!! This place was fantastic, the owners are beyond the best owners we have ever dealt with on HomeAway!!! If you come to Iceland and you don’t stay here.....you’ll be sorry. You can walk to everything, and if you rent a car the enclosed garage is so perfect!!! The parking garage was super clean! The apartment itself was amazing, so homey and inviting!! We will NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!!! The whole complex was so quiet we never seen anyone until the next day. The residents are so charming and everyone eats and says hello!! More than enough dishes towels, soap, laundry detergent you can’t want for anything here!!! Thanks so much for such a wonderful time in Iceland!!! Can’t wait to comeback and stay here!! Our new home away from home!!!

Fantastic 4 night mini-break

  • 5 of 5

A perfect apartment for our mini break. It is just as it is described in the advert and perfectly located for walking round town and also driving out beyond it. Gudmunder was very helpful on our arrival, even when we arrived quite late at night and communication before our visit was very quick and easy. We would definitely stay here again and hope to come back one day.

Clean, affordable, and convenience!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is the place for you if you want convenience, affordability, and cleanliness. It is located steps away from Laugevur street (where all the food and shops are), and a block away from a popular pick-up place for tours. Gudmundur, was very kind and met me at the entrance and showed me around. He also was available at anytime if you ever needed him. I will definitely stay again if I come back to Reykjavik!
