My husband, 2 teenagers and I had a wonderful stay at this flat. It is very roomy, comfortable and is well equipped with everything one needs. There are food stores not far away to get either basics or to cook a big meal if you like. The views from the top floor are amazing-we saw the Northern Lights a couple of times from the bedroom window. The flat is conveniently located as Christian mentions, to excellent restaurants (we loved the fish and chips place nearby) and and the center of town. Kex is a good place to check out and eat. It has great affordable food and a beautiful view of the the water. They have good bands playing weekly. We never felt like we needed a car, walking was easy and refreshing. We visited in the winter over xmas and New Years- I'd warn visitors that not all sidewalks, particularly in residential areas are shoveled or clear-in fact some are quite icy. Nevertheless that didn't stop us from doing the many excursions Iceland has to offer including glacier hiking, geothermal pools, caving etc. We walked to the International Hotel (I believe that's the name) 5 minutes away to be picked up by the tour companies, which are very well organized and have an endless selection of things to do. The winter is absolutely beautiful in Iceland with light that I've never seen before-so clear with some grey-stunning. The Icelanders are super friendly and accommodating. If you go during the holiday time be aware that many places are closed for a few days and sometimes you don't know until you get there! Christian was very easy to get a hold of and easy to work with. In short, we fell in love with Iceland!
