Arriving at the Reykjavik Airport, we took the shuttle bus into the town’s bus station, whereupon we learned that the apartment was a short 5 minute walk away. And that was just the beginning. The apartment itself is beautiful, clean, functional, comfortable and perfectly located. The bed, incredibly comfortable with views of the sunset and sunrise, which in mid June are about 2 hours apart.
Helga was delightful to work with as was Eria who greeted us and made certain we got oriented. Each of the restaurants Helga recommended was delightful. We walked for hours, discovering the city. Then rented a car for a couple of days to see the many wonders of Iceland that are within a good day trip away. A parking lot across the street from the apartment where it is free after 6 PM and until 10 AM was a real bonus.
So, if you’re going to Reykjavik and want a wonderful place to stay, I hope Helga’s apartment at the Black Pearl is available. Please take good care of it, we look forward to going back again and would stay no where else.
