About Adalsteinn Hjartarson

A native of Iceland living in Switzerland, I work with Island ProTravelGmbH as the owner.

Adalsteinn Hjartarson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Adalsteinn Hjartarson chose Reykjavik

Because it's peaceful, because it's family friendly, because it's a beautiful house, because it's not far from the city centre, because it's two minutes from the natural paradise of Laugardalur.

Great Location, Owner very responsive to questions.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice, kitchen and bath very good. Beds were very comfortable. The only concern was the neighbors above are noisy, they have small children that were up very early. Otherwise... it was a great location within walking distance from shops and restaurants.

Great place

Stayed one night and it was perfect for our family of 4. Easy to find, good directions on getting in and free parking. The setup is great and the apartment is very clean. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

Comfortable apartment for Reykjavik and surrounding area

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and spacious apartment in a quiet area. Could be suitable for any time arrival as has keysafe and nearby 24 hour supermarket. The apartment access is ground floor .. we took a few minutes to find the entrance as we thought first floor meant up stairs (UK speak).

Enjoyed nearby park for walk to city and swimming pool.

Good information prior to arrival, and helpful and friendly response from on site contact when we left an item..Unfortunately we did not meet them during our stay, but thank you.

We would recommend the place.

A nice place to stay and worth a repeat visit

  • 4 of 5

We came to Reykjavik to run the marathon. Although not in the center of the city, the apartment was less than a 5 minute walk to the bus stop, which took us to the marathon start on the morning of the race. The apartment was nicely furnished, clean, and could sleep 5 people. The only issues were as follows: 1) We contacted the owner via e-mail with a few questions approximately 10 days before our arrival, but never received a reply. Our plane arrived early in the morning and we were unsure as to what time we could check in to the apartment. Helga, who lived in one of the apartments in the building, was very nice and allowed us to store our bags while we explored the city until the guests staying the night before had left and the apartment was cleaned. 2) The cable television did not work properly and we only had one channel most of the time. We let Helga know and she promptly attempted to solve the problem and replaced the cable box with another one which temporarily solved the problem, but we had problems getting more than one channel on the television afterwards. Perhaps it was a wiring issue and not the cable box. In any event, Helga was great and very pleasant! Overall, we were pleased, however, and would stay there again upon a return visit to Reykjavik.

Overall Satisfaction

  • 5 of 5

The description on HomeAway site fully corresponds with the reality - the apartment is in easy reach of the Reykjavík centre, shopping possibilities nearby, easy street parking, very quiet place etc. Good starting point to all the nature attractions of South-West Iceland. We appreciated the key being locked in a coded box, as we arrived in the night. The apartment very clean and the equipment - excellent! (more than sufficient dishes, cookware, glasses etc.) Beds comfortable. The owner Adalsteinn Hjartarson was very helpful and fulfilled, when possible, our extraordinary wishes. We recommend it fully.

Sure beats staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We had a few days at the end of our trip and opted to stay here rather than a hotel in the city center. The apartment was quite roomy and had everything we needed. Even though it is in a busy residential area, it was very quiet. The owners were very responsive and accommodating. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Rek.
