Hard to find a better location in Reykjiavik!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, including three boys ages 14, 11 and 11 stayed here in June and had a wonderful vacation. The location of this property in the heart of the city centre could not be better located for first time visitors to Reykjiavik! The apartment was clean, spacious and within walking distance to almost all that this wonderful city has to offer. We had a rental car and the parking garage was a wonderful bonus. Food prices are high in Iceland so it was great to have a few of our meals at the apartment, mostly breakfast even though we did find a couple wonderful bakeries nearby. Bergur was a great host and met us at the apartment when we first arrived and walked us through all of the necessary logistics. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit! We just fell in love with this beautiful country and will be looking forward a return visit with eager anticipation.

Excellent apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were six adults traveling through Iceland. We stayed in the condo the second week of our vacation, after traveling the Ring Road in a motor home. It was such a treat to walk into such a spacious apartment after a week in cramped quarters. There are plenty of windows that made it very bright and cheerful.

All of the beds were the same, very comfortable and they also could be adjusted to incline the feet or head. There was another futon in the TV area that could also be used to sleep on. The bedrooms had black out shades that made it easy to sleep during the bright nights. The condo could easily accommodate more than six. There was plenty of storage in the bedroom and hall closets.

We cooked a few meals at home and the kitchen was well equipped to handle this. We did have a problem with the fridge but Berger sent someone over within the hour to fix it. We rented two cars and had called to ask Berger if there was a place to park. He came over and showed my husband the underground parking spot and walked with him to show him where we could park the other car a block away. While they were out he also walked him quite a distance to point out the swap meet. The condo is only a few blocks from all of the main shopping streets, it really couldn't have been in a better location.

Spacious, well stocked, clean

Great location and spacious!

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous apartment with great location and amenities. Clean responsive. Tricky door locks and garage door opener didn't work, otherwise would have been 4.5 or 5 star.

Owner very pleasant and accommodating.

Highly recommended!

Wonderful Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and sister-in-law and her husband went to Iceland for 5 days in May. This apartment has it all; great location, walkable to ALL SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS; privacy, there are 2 bedrooms and one bathroom on the main level and one bedroom and bathroom on the 2nd level. Each couple had their own bathroom and privacy, great layout; Bergur, the owner, was very helpful with any questions we had both pre visit and while we were at the apartment; parking space which was great as we rented a car; apartment is on the top floor (penthouse) so it is nice and quiet. If we ever go back to Iceland, we would 100% stay in Bergur's apartment. Iceland is worth going to see, what a beautiful country. Mary S. - Boston

Great pictures, great expectation but a real letdown

  • 1 of 5

The property looked great in the pictures and the host was very accommodating. The problems we encountered were numerous and the sad part is that the owner was aware of them prior to our visit. That became abundantly clear after talking with his maintenance people. We planned our clothing needs around the fact that there was a washer. It was broken and had been broken before we arrived. Even though the maintenance people were aware they nor the owner failed to tell us. That became evident after we discovered the problem. The owner tried to contact us but not for two days after we reported the problem . It was too late for anything to be done to help us. Both showers overflow due to the drains being partially blocked. Standing in cold water and the floor getting wet was really delightful. We could not exit from the garage into the hallway because the keys do not work. Maintenance told us that was an ongoing problem. This apartment was really not ready as an upscale condo. It is sad.but true. It is a great location.
