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!

Clean, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Just as described. We were impressed with how quiet the building and apartment were. Bjorn allowed us a late checkout which we appreciated. Full sized washer and dryer, which was nice. Garage parking included. Good bonus. Wi-fi worked great.

Beautiful apartment in the best location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and big apartment with all sorts of comfort. The check in process was quick and easy. It didn't even require that we meet the host. The check out was just as easy.

The location of the apartment is excellent, 2 mins walk from the center of town. The view from the balcony on the bay is great. The apartment has everything you will need to live comfortably. The only thing I'd recommend is offering more than one towel per guest. But that's just a minor thing.

Perfect home base in central Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

This brand new building is in the perfect location just outside the busy area of Laugavegur and Skólavörðustígur. This makes for a quiet and relaxing stay but walkable to just about everything you will want to see in the city and all of your necessities like pools and groceries.

The view is beyond compare and the photos on the site are very accurate. We woke up every morning to a beautiful view of the mountains and ocean and could also watch the city get it's day started below.

My husband and I stayed with a friend for a week. The apartment is a good size for three adults. The couch in the living room pulls out in to a comfortable bed and our friend loved the beautiful view right beside her bed. The bathroom is absolutely huge and in addition to the amazing shower (never ran out of hot water) it houses the washer & drier. This was quite handy as we like to pack light. Also no need for a hair drier as there is one provided.

the BSI is about a 20 minute walk from the apartment which is very easy. If you have a lot of bags the cab is about 1200 ISK. There is also a taxi stand at the hotel on the next block.

The kitchen is well stocked with dishes/pots/pans and even a can opener. Everything you will need for your stay. Grocery is a quick walk in either direction with a very large Kronan to the west and a decent sized Bonus to the east. There is also a 10-11 store about 2 blocks away which is more expensive but does have a good selection of the essentials.

Do not let the maps of the capital deceive you. Reykjavik is very walkable and things are far closer than they seem. If you like to walk you can cover the city center very easily and get to know all the nooks and crannies of the side streets.

When booking excursions the surrounding hotels are all pick up points including the Hotel Klettur which is right next door. This makes it very easy to get picked up/dropped off for your day trips. There is also a fantastic coffee shop right around the corner, Reykjavik Roasters.

We never did figure out the tv but we also didn't message Bjorn to ask about it. We happily listened to music through the tv when we were in. Bjorn is very responsive to enquiries and provides a detailed instruction email about the apartment.

Highly recommend this vacation apartment and look forward to another visit to Reykjavik. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Highly recommend this

Perfect Reykjavik home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The view, the clean, new building, the accessibility to everything in Reykjavik without being inside the tourist zone makes this a perfect place to stay.

A friend and I stayed 5 nights in this lovely apartment. The view is amazing. The harbor and the mountains without obstruction brought lots of light to this newly built apartment. The beds were comfortable, the accommodations clean and it was a quick two blocks to the central bus station and everything was nearby. The television confused us but Bjorn responded quickly to our questions. He was very accommodating to our arrival needs and the entire transaction was simple and clear. When I return, I hope to stay here again. Totally recommend this accommodation.
