Great location and overall design

  • 5 of 5

Great spot. Close walking distance to all of the restaurants. It is right across the street from Stop 6 which is one of the stops for all of the tour buses so it made it easy. I would recommend this place to friends.

Great accommodations in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Burkni’s home couldn’t have a better location for enjoying Reykjavík! The closest amenities and sights were just minutes away on foot, and our farther treks (such as The Nordic House and The Marshall House) were less than 25 mins.

Burkni was a welcoming and incredibly accommodating host, who was very responsive to my inquiries and requests. The home was clean and pretty well-stocked. The beds were warm and very comfortable. The kitchen and living room were comfortably sized and cozy. The home was a great resting spot after long days of exploring!

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

The space is wonderful - having 2 toilets is a real luxury. Burkni is a wonderful host - most accommodating. I would absolutely stay here again - but I would bring earplugs or noise cancelling headphones because there is a techno club and rowdy parties that do flood the street on the weekend - if it weren't for that I would give 5 stars! The place is spacious and clean and central to everything especially the bus stops that pick up for tours. Very comfortable space. Thank-you Burkni and Iceland for your hospitality we will be back :)

Lovely spacious apartment in the heart of downtown

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment: very spacious, well equipped (lots of the little things that make a stay so much easier, like detergent, coffee, spices). Great location, can walk to all the harbor and downtown attractions. Car parking nearby isn't too bad. Cafe downstairs, in the building, (Grey Cat) that does espresso coffee. Burkni is a great host: was in email contact with directions and helpful advice before we arrived, and was super-diligent on a repair he wanted to make to something previously broken (which we hadn't even noticed). Would definitely recommend.
