Excellent self catering apartment, central for Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment with all you need for self catering stay and free underground parking.

Very easy access for main shopping area of Reykjavik, local supermarkets and restaurants, as well as walking distance to main tourist attractions within the city.

We would particularly recommend Harry's Restaurant for an evening meal.

Many of the main tourist areas of Southwest Iceland can be reached during a day trip by car from the apartment.

Gudmunder was an excellent host. Responding quickly to any emails from our first contact and meeting us at the apartment on our arrival to show us around and explain how everything worked.

Would definitely recommend this apartment.

A wonderful apartment in a terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and modern with every convenience necessary for a comfortable stay. We did a lot of our own meal preparation and the kitchen was very well equipped. The bed was especially comfortable with high quality bedding. The Klettur Hotel is right around the corner and several of our day tours met there as well as drop off and pick up for,the Skybus. We walked into the town center most days and, despite persistent rain, had a grand time! The only minor suggestion we have would be brighter lighting in the living area, perhaps an additional lamp. This was a very minor inconvenience and did not hamper us at all. Thank you, Gudmunder, for such a lovely stay!

Excellent rental in the heart of Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

Gudmundur's apartment was exactly what we were looking for in a rental. Great location, great well-stocked apartment, and he was wonderful to work with, meeting us very early in the morning to show us the apartment and provide all needed instructions. The apartment was just like in the photos, was very clean and secure, and the indoor parking was a real bonus! We would not hesitate to stay there again and do highly recommend his apartment.

Warm hospitality in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

The apartment provided an ideal base for exploring Reykjavik and the surrounding regions (on day tours). The apartment is very close to Klettur Hotel for airport bus drop off / pick up and day tour pick up / drop off. It is also within walking distance of the Old Town (sights and cafes / restaurants) as well as a discount supermarket (Kronan). The apartment was spacious, clean, well equipped for any independent traveller, and quiet for a good nights sleep. We really enjoyed our stay in Iceland. Thank you so much Gudmundur for your very kind hospitality. With kind regards. Peter and Ann
