Good location

  • 3 of 5

Good location. Close to the main shopping streets and restaurants. Bathroom pictures are not representative of what we used as a bathroom. In fact, the bathroom pictured is not the same as the one available in the apartment. Also some of the windows in the living room where there were 2 beds didn't

have blinds. So if day light bothers you when you are trying to sleep it might be a problem. If you are more concerned about location tan comfort then, this apartment is ok.

First time in Iceland-Good Choice

  • 4 of 5

First time in Iceland- lots of snow!!! - present from children. First class apartment clean, comfortable,ideal to explore RKV on foot or get about Iceland . Privacy problems if 2 couples are staying but owner is addressing. Owner (Einer) extremely knowledgeable & helpful lots of tips on places to go & to eat. Food and drink expensive so buy drink at duty free.! Food excellent, so worth it, don't be afraid to ask for more! Check with owner (Einer) for directions before travel.E mail me for any further info.

Nice apartment, with some issues

  • 3 of 5

The apartment itself is very cute and is in a lovely part of town. I don't think it should be listed as a 2 bedroom property, however. It's really a one bedroom with 3 extra beds in the living room, which proved to be inconvenient for us (there were 4 adults travelling together, and it was a bit unfair for the 2 sleeping on lounges).

The owner had also mixed our dates up by a day, however he found us another apartment to stay in for that night, which was around the corner, it was just a bit of a pain having to take time out of our sight seeing schedule to move all our stuff.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for the inconvenience the dooble booking caused. In England this flat would be called a one bedroom apartment, however in Iceland this is a two bedroom flat. It consists of 2 rooms kitchen/dining area combined with one room and a bedroom.The bedroom has 2 beds put together. In Iceland we count all the rooms so a flat with 2 bedrooms and a living room is called 3 bedroom in Iceland. In view of the above review we have decided to draw a plan of the flat to put on the webside in order to avoid misunderstanding so guests can see in detail what they have ordered. So in some causes we can also rearrange beds. Sorry again for the troubles this caused Skatie and friends.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Einar, the owner is very helpful and knowledgeable. The apartment is cozy and well furnished with attention to detail. Location was important as we did not have our own transport and we were not disappointed, everything from a supermarket, bakery, cafe, bar and restaurants were all within easy walking distance as was the famous Leifur Eiriksson Church. Don't miss a visit to this historical landmark. The view from the top is well worth the price of admission.

Owner's Response: I am glad they liked the apartment. There is a minor error in the review but once you are in Reykjavik it doesnt matter. The name of the church is Hallgrimskirkja ( a cadhedral church) but in front of it is the statue of Leifur Eiriksson the founder of Vinland ( N- America in our times ).So its a perfectly normal mixup.

great place, location and coffee

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to experience Reykjavik. Right in the historical center of town, shops, cafes, restaurants all steps away - we were able to walk easily down to the harbor for our whale watching tour.

Einar, the owner, was very accommodating with our late arrival and generally friendly and helpful. The apartment itself was great for our family (2 adults, 2 kids under 10) - clean, uncluttered (but with some nice toys), well equipped, light and bright. The great bonus was the coffee house 20m up the road - certainly the best coffee in Iceland (and possibly the world - Sonja, the owner is a regular in world barista championships). We would recommend it to anyone heading to Reykjavik.
