Hits the nail on the head with location and walking to so many venues. The location is great enough to forego a rental car, unless you're using it to leave the Reykjavik area. Though a little practice will get you the ins and outs of driving and parking in the neighbourhood, the parking spots can be at a premium depending on the time of day.
The apartment was indeed clean and maintained, but as with all homes in the area the building is old so don't expect 21st century updates. The kitchen was nifty and came in very handy; it's nice to buy basics from the nearby Bonus shop (especially for breakfast) and save money eating a few meals in when you need some down time. All the appliances we used worked with no problem, and though always a personal preference, the bed/mattress were in good shape and we slept fine.
The owner was communicative with emails, flexible with logistics, and accommodating with our small departure issue. Take a copy of the directions and the photos (for visual reference) and locating the apartment will be easy. My girlfriend and I would definitely recommend this to any friend.
Nearby recommendations: Bonus shop, Noodle Station and Babalu's Cafe all within a few minutes. If you're not using a car, Reykjavik Excursions out of the BSI terminal 5 to 10 minutes walk offers plenty if you don't mind riding the bus (which you probably did to get here from Keflavik). Look for online discounts.
Had a great time here thanks to our great accommodation!
