Just great!

  • 5 of 5

Bjorn's place is so nice! It is walking distance from downtown Reykjavik and yet far enough for a peaceful and quiet stay. The apartment is cute and clean. Bjorn is very accomodating and available. We highly recommend it.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property knowing virtually nothing about Reykjavik, it was kind of a shot in the dark. What a good shot it was, especially for being on a budget! Bjorn was great from the beginning, easy communication, easy access once we got there, great directions. Everything was so smooth. The location was perfect, we walked to everything, everyday, and it was just far enough removed that it wasn't too noisy or busy with traffic. The view was beautiful and the apartment itself super cute. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if I ever make it back to Iceland, it truly couldn't have been easier, thanks Bjorn!

1 week stay

Fantastic view, very clean and quiet, even being on a busy street and with construction going on behind!!! The Master bed is very comfortable- rooms are small! And the fridge is a bar fridge and doesn't have a freezer but grocery stores are VERY CLOSE, and short walks to very good resteraunts!!

This was the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

I adore this apartment! It was perfect for two people and could not have been in a better location. We could walk to the grocery store and we were on the main shopping and restaurant/bar street of Reykjavik, but just enough away from all the noise and hustle. It was a five minute walk to all the shops and restaurants and it was easily walkable to all of downtown, the Harpa, and the museums. Bjorn was extremely responsive to any question and very helpful when we first arrived. He made check in and check out easy! I definitely recommend this rental to anyone going to Reykjavik!

Wonderful simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We were met promptly at our agreed pickup location which FlyBus takes you there and the apartment is merely a two minute walk from there.

And, there myself and two children were met by the host and taken into this fantastic apartment - close to the centre and many attractions. As the owner points out - close to supermarkets and also a major bus depot.

Everything was clean and there was even food left in the larder - which helped a great deal - for we arrived 2am (our time) and 7am Reykjavik time. And, our first instinct was to sleep rather than worry about shopping (a google map printout showing the locations of the supermarkets would have been helpful). Although, easy to find, when you are fully awake.

Cooking facilities were excellent. Water pressure and shower temperatures were just right. I strongly endorse and support anyone wishing to stay in Reykjavik to chose this wonderful apartment.

And, lastly but also equally important Bjorn is the most excellent and accommodating of hosts. He was there to make this trip a real pleasure in answering sometimes my redundant questions and requests. Certainly, I would stay there again, if I were to return to Reykjavik...which I do plan to...some day.

Great one bedroom apartment

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with Brojn in Reykjavik in July. The apartment was clean and well located close to the old center area where you would eat, walk and shop. The unit had parking and easy to get to from the highways. The unit is one bedroom with a pull out sofa.
