Stayed: October 2012
We stayed for 4 nights at this apartment and you can't beat the location. It's within walking distance of many of the sights in Reykjavik, our stay was over a weekend and we had no problems with the noise issue some other reviewers complained about experiencing. The satellite tv and Netflix were great... The elevator was out of order but Siggi helped us carry our luggage up the 4 flights of stairs, so no big deal. A couple of things were not as advertised, we had no complimentary juice or soft drinks, we were told free parking was 5 minutes away and being in the city center, we couldn't find any, not a real problem, it only cost us a few dollars a day to park & display, so if you have a car, be prepared for this. The overall cleanliness was good, but the toilet needed cleaning on our arrival and there wasn't enough toilet paper, again not a huge thing. As far as the 24 hr supermarket, it's the 10/11, comparable to a 7/11 in the states, not great, pick up your groceries at a Bonus before you get there, we're sure glad we did. Overall, highly recommended... thanks Siggi
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Hi Cris, I'm sorry you could not find the free parking, but the area I told you about used to be free of charge, but recently it was changed into low price area, which means you can park for one week for about 10 USD. I just didn't know they had changed that. Now it takes about 7 minutes to walk to the free parking area.
Regarding the complimentary drinks, I'm sorry, that was a mistake.. we did not have much time to prepare the apartment because you did check in early in the morning or 9am instead of 2pm (which was complimentary) so the change over time was very short and in that rush we forgot the drinks. Regarding toiled rolls there is 1 roll for each day. If the toiled was not clean, I'm deeply sorry that it got left out when we were rushing to clean the apartment before your early arrival. That should never happen again, it is totally unacceptable and I wish you could have notified us when you found out, because we would have fixed that problem right away.
Thank you for staying, best regards Siggi
