Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the better part of a week and it was like a home away from home. We needed three extra beds in the living area, which can fit but makes for a much smaller living area as two are directly next to the dining table and one to the left of the front door as you walk in. Locking the door is a trick that I finally figured out on the last day, thankfully my companions were much better than by the first day. The Bonus (grocery store) is right next door. The kitchen is sparse on pans and covers, but plenty of dishes and drinkware. Any bus excursions will pick up literally right outside the front door (or directly around the corner for coach sized buses).

comfortable, spacious, a little pricey for what it is.

  • 4 of 5

Loved having the grocery store right next door. The flat was spacious and the kitchen well stocked. The disappointments had to do with balcony facing a crumbling derelict wall, and the BBQ, a rusty dirty mess. We overall, enjoyed our stay. When I started out attempting to rent this spot, I thought it would be a certain price. As the process evolved, there was this fee and that fee, and extra expenses that were not expected. Ended up kind of expensive. Iceland is beautiful country, but extremely expensive. A bottle of Smirnoff vodka is approximately $75.00. All in all, we had a good time and the waterfalls and hot springs balance the wind, rain and cold.

Spacious and comfortable central accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed for a week in September and were very satisfied with the accommodation. Convenient for walking into the city or to the harbour, with a supermarket next door and tour and airport pick up point right outside the door.

There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we especially liked the coffee maker!

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what we needed. We were 3 guys, looking for a place to relax after a hike and we want space to spread out. It is clean, spacious and reasonable. The only surprise was that it was about a 10-15 minute walk into downtown versus being right in the center of downtown Reykjavik. However that has its good and bad. We did have a Bonus grocery store right next door which was awesome. Also, Sigurjon was very helpful in keeping our luggage safe while we went on a hike. Tx!

great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for seeing the town or home base for your day trips. Easy to get in and out of. Always found free parking across the street. Very spacious. I would book this again. FYI for grocery shopping, no real coffee maker, only the pods kind.

Very nice apartment, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment for our family visit to Iceland. Location is very convenient for walking to downtown Reykjavik shops and cafes. The Bonus market on the next block is nice and a good value for food, snacks, drinks, etc.. Parking is free across the street and was always available. Bakeries and coffee shops nearby. The host was very responsive via email and the check in/out procedure was easy and efficient.
