We stayed here on our honeymoon, and found the location to be far better than all the hotels we looked at-- it's in the heart of Reykjavik, within easy walking distance to everything we wanted to see! The property owner was very nice and responsive. The apartment is very private, quiet, and a great value, and we would stay here again. The only recommendation we have is to carefully confirm how you will gain access to the accommodation (that was our fault), but once again-- we were very happy with this accommodation and we believe it is more comfortable, less expensive, and better located than the city's hotels.
It's a little flat, very calm in a garden with only one room but it's sufficient for a family with two children. Very good equiped kitchen, confortable bed and a wash machine. Very good place in the town, only 5 minutes from the town center.
A quick glance at the map already shows how perfectly central this residence is; located conveniently between the bus terminal and downtown. The iconic outline of Hallsgrimskirkja serves as an excellent landmark whenever returning from your Reykjavik explorations, as it is literally a block down the street. All of the unbeatable convenience pales in comparison to the comfort of this apartment, however. Your hostess is both accommodating and knowledgeable in every sense. She went out of her way to ensure that the apartment was properly stocked, comfortable and impeccably clean. I would not even consider staying in a hotel after the positive experience had by myself and three travel companions. The proximity to everything in Reykjavik is what sold me, but the dedication to making our stay as comfortable as possible is what will bring me back.
Good place for a couple or groups up to four friends. The studio is fully equipped as described by the owner. The studio is cozy, and its a pleasure to get in after a long day of work.
Very nice owner, professional, short time to respond by email prior to my arrival. The owner gave some valuable indications about places of interest in the neighborhood the first day.
The studio is close to the downtown, BUS terminal to the airport (a plus if you arrive to Reykjavik at night), pharmacy, thermal swimming pool, minimarket five minutes walking and some nice places to visit like the Hallgrímskirkja (church of Hallgrímur), the harbour, Harpa (concert hall) and Perlan (landmark building).
very nice rental, in a great neighborhood, in the center of reykjavik. We were there for 2 unforgettable weeks. Everything that you need was there include a washing machine with a dryer function. Perfect! Very nice owner. I really recommend this place to everybody who would like an uncomplicated time in Iceland.
We arrived earlier than the 2 p.m. check-in but were able to track down Thorey to drop off our bags. Since the apartment is literally behind the best view in town, we started our tour by taking the elevator to the top of the Hallsgrimkirke. From there we walked into town, had lunch and finally came back to the apt. It was clean, bright and has a kitchen well stocked with utensils, etc. Although it's a studio, there's a living area with the bed behind a partial wall. We asked for, and received, a hair dryer. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a couple. It's straight up the hill from the bus station from the airport and on the church square you have the wonderful Cafe Loki , a supermarket and even a pool which we didn't get a chance to use. Down the hill is Kaffitar and the old harbor.
