Great five days in Iceland

  • 5 of 5
We spent wonderfull five days at Reykjavik and Iceland - grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, two teenagers and one child. The big apartment at Leifsgata 25 was ideal for us: plenty of room and the location is just perfect. It was like being at home (even piano which we played a little;-). The owner was very helpfull. We recommend the apartment to everybody that goes to Reykjavik with a family or a group.

Owner's Response: Wonderfully Icelandic, that is the tradition of the big family sharing space and time. This is just what this apartment was originally built as, a big family house:) (the first family living there had six boys) And a good thing that they mention our piano which I don't think I have included in the facilities. But the piano of course is for everyone to enjoy!

rational and clean flat

  • 4 of 5
It's a little flat very rational for a family with 2 children, clean and with a good equiped kitchen and comfortable beds. The house is near the town center and it's a quiet and clear environment.

Comfortable, cozy house for a big group.

  • 5 of 5
Somos un grupo de 7 amigos y hemos pasado 4 días en esta acogedora casa donde nos hemos encontrado como en nuestra propia casa. Tiene todo lo necesario para una cómoda estancia y está muy cerca de la calle comercial. Las vistas desde el baño y las terrazas son fantásticas. La comunicación con Thorey ha sido fluida y cordial. Es una opción altamente recomendable no solo para visitar la ciudad sino tambien en caso de alquilar un coche ya que ademas de tener parking tiene fáciles accesos de salida de la ciudad.
Thank you Thorey!

Schöne Zeit in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren mit 2 Familien Reykjavik und haben mit 8 Personen alle beiden Appartements genutzt. Es hat allen sehr gut gefallen und die zentrale Lage zur Innenstadt hat sich als optimal erwiesen. Zum Essen können wir besonders das kleine thailändische Restaurant 'Krua Thai' am Hafen empfehlen. Wir werden sicher mal wieder nach Reykjavik kommen.

Lovely apartment for 6 adults and 3 children

  • 5 of 5
We stayed one week in this lovely apartm. Lots of room for everyone. Toys for the kids (12,4 and 2 years) piano and books for adults. The location was super. Close to everything. Fun to visit the Swimhall around the corner and the playground in the park. We also enjoyed the view of the Hallgrims church.
The apartm. has a great big kitchen with evrything for cooking. Many restaurant in the neighborhood "Roadhouse" and "Loki." Reykjavik is wonderful, and the excursions on the island were breathtaking. It was great to see the sun at midnight.
We vill like to recommend the apartm. to friends and would like to come back. What was missing in the apartm.:
A hard mattress for one of us with a bad back.
Written instructions for the diswasher and the laundry facilities.
Our hostress Thorey was very helpfull all the time, so we should just have told her.
Best regards from all of us.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kamma and Henrik. I am happy to hear that your family enjoyed the staying at our apartment and found the location suitable. It is very important to get a review and here peoples opinion about there experience of the visit. I am thankful for the valuable mention of what could be done better. I will certainly add written instructions for the dishwasher as well as the laundry facilities for the future. The hard mattress is something to consider but that is always a difficult one to have mattresses that suite everyone but this is something to keep in mind. We do have new mattresses in all the beds so hopefully that will fulfill the needs of most people.
