Cozy and convenient apartment, and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is cozy and very comfortable for a family of 4, with a kitchen and small fridge, and 2 very comfortable bedrooms. I mainly cooked breakfast or lunch there, we pretty much went out to dinner since we were on vacation. There's no freezer in the apartment so if you need ice ask the hosts (Pali or Dagrun).

The location is in a quiet neighborhood next to a school with a playground - my 8 year old son played in it just about every day. We went to the supermarkets (Bonus with the pig logo is the cheapest), restaurants (the XO around the corner is a great bargain), a bakery and coffe shop that are within a few minutes walk, and also to the great local swimming pool which was about a 6 minute walk. Downtown or the harbor are about a 10 minute walk (eat at the Seabaron in the harbor for great lobster soup).

The description was very accurate - one thing about the washer/dryer is that it does spin dry, then you hang up your wet stuff there in the very dry and warm laundry room, and it dries in a few hours. It's not like an american-style hot-air dryer, but works just fine.

The hosts, Pali and Dagrun, are very friendly and helpful (they live just upstairs) and gave us great advice on places to go, things to do, places to shop etc. including maps. The apartment also has a big library of Iceland travel books including a great one on the locations of natural hot springs in the country. When we got home after day trips Pali provided us with fresh towels.

Pali and Dagrun also have a 4-wheel drive car to rent - it saved us a lot of money and was very reliable.

Overall this is a great place for a family of 4 and I highly reccomend it.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I picked up this rental home based on the excellent reviews and smooth communications with the owner before arrival. It's very kind of them let us check in early without any additional charge when I'd mentioned our flight is in the early morning and I'm coming with my 7-yr-old son. Mr. Pall provided tons of useful suggestions during our stay, it made our time in Iceland very pleasant. The location of the house is very convenience. 15 mins walk away to the center of the town, 2 mins away from the bay. I didn't book the blue lagoon early enough, but we had a wonderful time in the local thermal pool instead. We were stuck by an bad car accident on the way back from glacier lagoon, Pall even tried to call us to make sure we were doing okay, which bring the warmness in the windy winter. We rented the 4-wheels jeep from Pall for a few days, the car is in great condition and the price is way cheaper than rental company. The apartment itself is very clean, quiet and well-maintained. I highly recommend this apartment for travelers who don't just want to travel like tourists, but also would like to see how locals live. Pall himself is a very experienced tour guide, he will be able to answer any questions you have to maximize your expectation of your Iceland travel!

Wonderful apartment! Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is very clean, neat and uncluttered. It is roomy and comfortable. Plenty of amenities come with the apartment, it is a very close walk to downtown Reykjavik and the water. Our hosts were friendly, pleasant, very helpful and glad to give us information about sightseeing and answer any of our questions. We would definitely stay here again if we get the chance to visit Iceland again.

Great stay and great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a long four day weekend with my wife and sister and we could not be any happier with the place. The apartment is close to downtown, yet also close to the main road leading out of Reykjavik, which makes it easy to get in and out of the city quick.

Pall and Dagrun were super friendly and helpful in answering any questions we might have about the area. We also rented their Ford Explorer SUV, which was very convenient and available to us at a very competitive price.

As for the apartment, it is very well kept and has a modern feel to it. The fully equipped kitchen is very nice to have as well. The shower was nice, and as it is Iceland, you can shower as long as you want without wasting energy.

If I travel to Iceland again, I will hopefully be able to book this apartment again.

Convenient & Quiet Apartment in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a renovated basement unit in a private house in a quiet residential section of northwest Reykjavik. The owners are husband and wife, Pall and Dagrun, two of the nicest people you are likely to meet in Iceland.

Pall, who also runs an outdoor guide business, provided welcome recommendations for day-trips into the county and for many of the “must-see” tourist attractions. Dagrun generously offered to wash and dry our laundry at their house, when we found the dryer listed with the apartment had been removed for repairs. They also provided us additional towels to take to the swimming pool, which save us the $5 USD rental fee. Pall and Dagrun both have professional day-jobs and were helpful in describing the business climate in Iceland and some of the cultural norms.

The apartment has a well equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, which we used mostly for breakfast, because we were traveling almost every day. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with 2 singles. It seems ideal for a family with 2 kids, but it worked fine for 4 adults who have previously traveled together. Having unlimited hot water in the shower for everyone is a nice Icelandic benefit.

The apartment is located a 5- minute walk from a bakery (good for breakfast pastry or sandwiches) and 2 supermarkets; 10-minute walk from the nearest thermally heated swimming pool (Vesturbaejarlaug); and 15-20 minutes to most of the Reykjavik business area.

If you plan to rent a car, Pall and Dagrun offer their guests a 5-seat SUV for $99 USD /day (as of May 2014) with a GPS and you can pick the days you want to use it. This is a Great Deal if you comparison shop. This is not an off-road vehicle, but the all-wheel drive is nice in the rain and on gravel roads. If you are planning to drive off-road in a rental vehicle, I recommend you visit the web site http://icelandreview.com and search for “off-road fine” to decide if it’s worth the risk.

We would certainly recommend this apartment because of the owners and its location.
