Almost Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Bjorn's apartment for three nights in early January 2017. The booking process was easy and stress-free.

We weren't lucky enough to catch the Northern Lights from the balcony, but it's possible. Nevertheless, good weather rewards you with a clear view of mountains in the distance, which was lovely.

The apartment is spacious for two guests and was clean and tidy. We were surprised to have to buy our own toilet paper on arrival, and make the bed as well - not things we'd expect to have to do. The arrival book also indicates that a thirty euro charge is due if the place is not left as it was found. We can understand that leaving an absolute mess would be inappropriate, but we don't feel it should be the guest's responsiblity to maintain the place for the next inhabitants, so were slightly put off by that.

Those things aside, this is a convenient place to stay and is just around the corner from a major hotel from where you can arrange pick-ups for tours. It's not central to the centre of town so you'll be walking a bit to get there, but given the best of Iceland is outside of Reykjavík, this wasn't a problem.

Clean, Quiet Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment during our 3 day layover. It is very clean and quiet. Grocery stores were close. It was next to a hotel that made tour pick up easy. Close enough to downtown and the waterfront. Beautiful views!!!

You get what you pay for!

  • 3 of 5

Views from the balcony were wonderful. The area very quiet. Bus depot a short walk from apartment. About 15-20 minutes from centre. However, ad says up to 4 people, not, only 2 old and faded towels in the bathroom. Ad said, cable, not, only 1 english channel on Chinese station. My husband enjoys relaxing after a long day of sightseeing with world updates on the TV. . The owner's son changed the ad after I pointed out the difference. You need to supply your own t-paper etc as it runs out, good job there's a couple of groceries nearby. The ad says, no extra fees, not, you need to clean the apartment or leave 30 euros, I don't know how this can be enforced and then how can you be sure if it was cleaned! Although the apartment is new, the bathroom is already showing signs of grout blackness, not my job to clean it. Also, the shower is plugged and very slow draining making for run off into the bathroom area. We were disappointed as the reviews made it sound great. This apartment could be great but not if the owner is unwilling to make some changes. This is an honest review based on our stay and our standard.

We stayed three nights in this terrific modern new apartment, great balcony and amazing views Just 10 minute walk to all main sights. Only thing that would have made it better would have been to stay longer. We loved Reykjavic and this apartment

Great location, Breathtaking view, LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this rental for our honeymoon! The location is absolutely perfect - it's located just a block outside of the bustling downtown district, so it was away from the noise but close to the action! We walked downtown nearly everyday for some shopping, exploring and dining. The apartment was clean, well-furnished, and the bed was SO comfortable! We really felt like this place was our home away from home during our stay here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful apartment with us!

Northern Lights from the balcony!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect stay for us. Close to supermarkets, bars and restaurants. It was an easy walk to downtown. Also close to the great 50 m swimming pool with multiple hot pots. The apartment had a good kitchen, and was very quiet, with shades that darken well. There is a great panoramic city and vista view. And the best surprise? We saw the Northern Lights from the balcony. I hope to stay here again sometime. There was even a playground for children.
