Why Ingunn Thorarinsdottir chose Reykjavik

We fell in love with the apartment the first time we saw it. We were looking for a place to stay when frequently wisiting my homeland. The appartment felt like a haven in otherwise busy down town Reykjavik. The feeling of wood flooring agenst the cleen white concreet walls, spacius livingroom, big vindows and a south facing balkony. Made it a perfect choise.

Modern, comfortable and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We had a 5 night stay at this apartment and was very impressed with the appearance and location. The property was exceptionally clean and well maintained, the kitchen was well equipped and the beds extremely comfortable. The shower was really exceptional and the heated floor in the bathroom was a real treat. The apartment was in a fantastic location for sightseeing around the city. Just a few minutes walk from Sun Voyager and restaurants, bars, and shops, yet in a quiet residential neighbourhood.

The owners responded particularly well to our queries and were particularly helpful during our stay.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment for a stay in Reykjavik.

Modern and Central

  • 5 of 5

Sigrun was a wonderful host. She met us to show us around the apartment and even had some cookies and juice waiting. The apartment is just as other reviews say -- clean and modern, with everything you could need. It is within walking distance to all the major sites but has a private parking space if you have a car. There are restaurants and bakeries all nearby. We couldn't have asked for more!

Fabulous, Immaculate and Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

The owners and Sigrun (owners mother) are terrific and dependable. The apartment is modern, spacious and immaculate in all ways. The indoor parking was a fantastic benefit as parking on the street can be a challenge. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants/bars, groceries, bakeries, the harbor, you name it. Believe every great review you read for this apartment... it's all true!

My best compliment, we are booking it again for next year!

Great Apartment, Freat Location

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. We arrived after midnight and were met by the owners mother Sigrun, a lovely lady. She showed us around the condo and garage. She supplied coffee and juice and some snacks. The condo is even nicer than the pictures show. It was impeccably clean, the beds and linen are clean and comfortable. The heated floor is the icing on the cake of a clean, modern bathroom and laundry. The location is walking distance from multiple bars and restaurants. The underground parking gave me peace of mind that my rented car would be safe. I would highly recommend this place to friends , family, or anyone going to Iceland. A great place at a reasonable price.

The property was exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this spacious and clean property, the beds so comfortable, better than most hotels I've stayed in, wish I could have taken mine home. Lots of storage and apartment well maintained.

There was 4 of us staying, and there was nothing more we could have asked for, the owners mum also put up a Christmas tree for us, after asking if we would like one.

Great location, couple minutes walk to centre of town or to the harbour.

We would definitely stay again, if I had any complaints and this is being petty, if you're tall be careful of the Extractor hood, and I couldn't find a tin opener...but I saw the Northern Lights and everything pales into comparison to that spectacular experience.

Thank you for a great stay!
