Amazing apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything that we could have ever needed, and was spotlessly clean. We could have stayed a month and been very happy. It's close to the bus lines.

Great get away apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly what we needed to be able to explore Iceland, Reykjavik, and be involved with local activities. It was very comfortable, clean, and easy to access. It's within a 5 minute walking distance of a market, a couple of restaurants, and a couple of malls.

Very convenient apartment for family/group

  • 4 of 5

Our family was making a stopover in Reykjavik for a couple of days. From the beginning, the booking has been easy. The owner was easy to reach and very responsive. The apartment is convenient for families. We had the master bedroom. One of our teenager used the sofa bed and the other, the bed in the hallway. The beds were comfortable, the sofa bed is..a sofa bed.

Kitchen was well equipped but the oven door couldn't be opened. In lieu, dual function micro wave was provided.

Cleanliness was superficial. A deeper clean-up in Kitchen and corners needed.

Wi-Fi was very good. Parking in the street was very convenient.

Make sure you bring hear plugs as you'll keep the windows open to maintain reasonable temperature and you can her traffic on the Main Street as well as the apartment above which had a late night on the Friday.

Overall, very happy with the apartment, amenities and location.

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.

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.
