Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, spacious, and just as advertised. The instructions and directions were very clear. We never met the host but he was easy to communicate with via VRBO. Overall, we were very happy with the accommodations and would recommend this as a good hotel alternative for those visiting Reykjavik.

The unit is within walking distance to many of the sights in the area and it's adjacent to Klettur Hotel from which you can schedule any excursion or tour pickups. There's also parking available with the rental if you choose to drive yourself in Iceland.

The living room is comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked and equipped for cooking meals, and the bedroom is also spacious and comfortable. The sheets were just okay in terms of comfort and the showering towels were probably the hardest towels we've ever used.

There are 2 grocery stores nearby. BONUS is much better priced than the 24 hour "10/11" but both are much more expensive than the average american grocery store. If you have any interest in cooking breakfast/meals while you're there, these are good options and the kitchen is well equipped to handle your needs.

There's also a washing machine / dryer which came in handy for us to wash our clothes.

Some considerations:

- Many of the TV channels that we actually wanted to watch after a long day of hiking or activities were scrambled/inactive.

- We only had 2 rolls of toilet paper - we didn't end up having a crisis but it was something we had to be conscious of while there.

- "Resto" is right around the corner from the apartment and had some of the best food we tasted during our stay.

Excellent modern apartment in a superb location with far reaching views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the top floor (7th) and the views from it and the balcony are superb. Tower cranes spoil the view slightly at the moment but the area has a few ongoing developments but no noise from these. Very quiet location but only 2 minute stroll to the beginning of the main street and the start of many bars, restaurants, shops etc. It would be hard to beat such a convenient location. Local bus station also very close making local travel easy but everything in the city is walkable.

Apt has very modern decor and is well equipped warm and cosy. Hotel literally round the corner (hotel kletteur ) is useful for all tour pickups. Will hopefully stay again at this apartment.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The apartment is lovely and has great facilities. The apartment is in a great location close to town (approx 290 mins walk). We even saw the northern lights from the balcony which was an added bonus.

Bjorn was a brilliant host and very helpful with great communication. The check in/ check out process is also very easy. The hotel just round the corner (hotel Klettur) is a well known stop for all tours and the flybus which is really convenient also.

The only slight irritation of the experience was that when you arrive you have to make your own beds and clean the apartment including hoovering and cleaning the bathroom before you leave or are charged 30euros cleaning fee. We felt this was a little cheeky but nevertheless had a lovely stay.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Björn's apartment on Stakkholt. The apartment was clean, modern, and had most of what we needed. It was perfect for two though if you like your space it may be tight for 4 adults but is doable. The location was great! Around the corner from Klettur Hotel which is where we had the tour companies pickup and drop us off since they all know where it is. It's within walking distance to everything and Reykjavik is a very walkable city. Reykjavik Roasters, Devitos Pizza, and other restaurants are just a few minutes away as well as a 1011 24 hour convenience store. The apartment has a nice view of the city, water, and mountains with large windows in the living and bedroom areas as well as a private patio off the bedroom. The washer was tricky to operate since the buttons are all in Icelandic so we downloaded an English manual, fortunately there's WiFi plus our phones worked just fine in Iceland (T-Mobile). Björn was very responsive and easy to book with and was able to accommodate an early check in for us since our flight arrived very early. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this apartment.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described. Beautiful views, clean, quiet and comfortable.It was a great apartment to come home to after our busy days, warm and bright. Helpful to have full kitchen, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, washing machine and dryer. Perfect location and apartment. Walkable to everything. Elevator building with ramp so accessible if needed.Supermarket at corner and great pizzeria on the other. Pick up for excursions, airport transfer, etc next door at Hotel Klettur. Bjorn always made himself readily available for any questions making this a perfect stay!
