Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights and we were so happy with this place! I agree with other reviewers - the pictures don't do the place justice. Plus, the location is really perfect - walking distance to every restaurant we chose, easy to get out for sightseeing. Also, there is tons of parking on quiet streets. I don't drive regularly and was nervous about the parallel parking situation, but it was not a problem at all. We had a late flight our last day and Gigja was very accommodating letting us stick around as she wasn't expecting new guests for a few days. From other reviews, sounds like she is generally flexible when she can be, which is really nice. If we ever go back to Iceland, I'd definitely stay here again.

Absolutely fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this apartment between November 27 and December 2, 2013.
Our flight arrived very early in the morning (6 am), and Gigja (apartment owner) offered an early check in (9 am). What a nice surprise! When we arrived Gigja met us inside and showed this lovely place.
Fantastic design (yes, it does look better than shown on those photos), very central location, but still in very quiet neighborhood. If you have a rental car - there is a plenty of parking spots available just outside the building.
Big supermarket is just 10 minutes away (by walking). If you have some urgent needs there is a bakery in the next building where you can buy some groceries, bread, pastries and such.
Once again: we were amazed by this place!
I will definitely go back some day, and I would highly recommend it to others!

Beautiful comfy apartment and fabulous location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this stylish property in the heart of Reykjavik for a week in Sept. and were very pleased with our experience. The memory foam beds and pillows were wonderful, as was the beautiful decor, wonderful views, and fully equipped kitchen. The drawer full of tour books and maps was most helpful. Having wi-fi access, along with an entertainment system was also a terrific perk. There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance, as is the Harpa conference center and local supermarkets. Access to the highway is also very convenient to drive to the National Parks and the gorgeous terrain of Iceland. I would highly recommend GPS for day trips! Having free parking in the back of the building was also a great asset. Overall we had a lovely time and found Larus and Gigja to be courteous and welcoming. Highly recommended!

Superb Apartment in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I arrived in Iceland in the midst of a crazy blizzard (one Iceland hadn't seen in years, that was our first impression!). Because of the storm many roads were impassable, and we frustratingly had to wait an extra couple of hours at the bus station.

Finally we arrived at the apartment and the managers of the aparment Gigja and Larus were very gracious and apologetic about the delay (there were unprecedented road closures).

The apartment was worth the wait. Absolutely stunning and just as good if not better than the pictures. I almost hate to write a review because I don't want too many people coming here (selfish, I know : )...

Anyways, this apartment was the cherry on top of our Icelandic stay. It was within comfortable walking distance to everything: Grocery stores, car rental places, the shore and iconic statue, and downtown Iceland with all of it's nightlife and activity. After enjoying the city and country, it was just as exciting returning to this 6th floor LUXURIOUS apartment to relax and take in the views.

After 4 days alone, we were joined by another couple and 2 singles (6 people total). Everyone fit comfortably, and the others were just as blown away by this apartment.) We rented a car, and conveniently were able to park right at the entrance next to the elevators most nights. Once or twice I had to park a block away, which I didn't mind because I enjoyed the walk.

So, hopefully in my rambling what comes across is that this apartment was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I don't normally write reviews but I was so grateful for this place that I couldn't help it. It only took me 4 months to get to it though!

P.S. I understand the importance of reviews for fellow travelers, I certify by my own honor and integrity that this review is completely legitimate. :)

Excellent choice for central location

  • 5 of 5
Excellent apartment with great views in a quiet but very handy part of town. Near to supermarket, bars etc. We came by flybus and taxi quite late (midnight) but were met and guided around. I wish we had booked a car from the airport, as we had to use a car anyway to get to our next destination. It's worth noting that parking is free at the apartment. I had assumed "downtown" meant difficult parking as in Seville (our last holiday destination) or London, but that was because we hadn't been to Iceland before. (Even in Reykjavik roads are empty compared with anywhere in England.) I can highly recommend this flat as a base for exploring the south of Iceland. You can wander off and return to the "bright lights" of Reykjavik. People are all very friendly - I couldn't see any negatives. Even though it was a bit cold outside, it was still 5 degrees Centigrade warmer than England (March 2013). Even a "happy hour" bar close by.
One of the nicest apartments I have ever stayed in and good value compared with hotels. It was also superior to all the other apartments we considered.
Only thing missing - a UK style kettle, although the coffee maker was brilliant and did dispense boiling water. In addition worth pointing out that the flat follows the modern trend of open plan living, so no doors to sleeping areas.

This one is different....

If you have an eye for modern art, interior design, comfort and a sense of well-being - this is the right apartment for you.

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for three weeks over Christmas 2012. We truly felt we had the best apartment in the city centre of Reykjavík. You have all the privilege of the city centre in a walking distance but still the neighbourhood is quiet in the evenings so you don´t have to worry about sleepless nights.

Located on the 6th floor, the apartment has amazing views - an ocean view to the mountains on the one side and charismatic view of the old town of Reykjavík on the other topped by the unique Hallgrímskirkja (biggest church in Iceland and a famous landmark).

The owner obviously emphazised on top quality design and has thought of every small detail when decorating it. The apartment is filled with beautiful pieces of Icelandic art, as well as universal, that give it a high class standard. It is very modern and light but at the same time warm, cosy and classic. It is equipped with all the modern electrical devices and the Tempur mattresses in the bedroom were extremely comfortable.

If you have a car at your disposal, there is private parking in basement. It’s very convenient to use and gave a nice feeling to be able to take the elevator directly up to the apartment. In addition, all doors open automatically which was really helpful when we had our hands full with the Christmas shopping and groceries.

This is definitely an apartment we would like to own ourselves and we felt really privileged to have the opportunity to stay there for three weeks.
