Siggy,

Thanks for an awesome stay while in Reykjavik, Iceland. From the very beginning when I first booked the appartement to the time we finally met in person and during our stay, you made us all feel welcomed and assured that you had our best interest at heart.

The appartement was clean, very central to all the hotspots in Reykjavik and minutes from the highways giving access to all the other wonders Iceland offers.

Did I mention lots of room? We were all surprised at the living space we had. The pictures on VRBO really don't give justice to what you're actually getting.

Siggy if we're ever in Reykjavik again we know we have a home away from home. Until then thank you greatly.

great place to spend time to explor Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Full kitchen is a nice to have and to be close to a grocery store so you can cook is a great feature with this location. We walked to the downtown area of Reykjavik with ease with out using our car. Beds are comfortable and the WIFI internet is fast and dependable. Highly Recommend this location to enjoy Reykjavik and to access the golden circle either with your rental car or to take a tour.

Great apartment in downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in the apartment and had a great time. The apartment is literally next to a grocery store and there is a tasty bakery within walking distance. The apartment was clean and spacious. We thought it was centrally located to all of the major attractions in Reykjavik. We had a car and it was easy to find free parking. If we're ever back in the area we would definitely stay again!

Comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

Most importantly, the beds at Siggy's place were the most comfortable of our three week European vacation. Even sitting on the couch was comfortable.

The apartment is only a few blocks from the center of downtown Reykjavik. The first day we drove down only to discover walking would have been just as fast. The apartment is on ground level which was convenient for bringing things in from the car. Outside the door is sometimes pay parking, but it is free on the other side of the street.

The apartment was clean, bright and modern. The internet was fast and reliable, and there were lots of English TV stations. All of the many large and small appliances worked well, and the grocery store, about 100 meters/yards away, was very convenient. We picked up some items and ate breakfast at the apartment. With the sky high cost of food in Iceland this was a great way to save money.

There are many condiments etc. for preparing your own meals, and previous guests had left jams, margarine, milk etc.

Iceland has geothermal heating, so the large radiator could be cranked if you wanted. We mainly left it where it was because it was comfortable, and turned it up a bit to dry the clothes we had washed. There was a slight draught from under the rear door, so some people might want to turn up the heat a bit more to heat up that area. Again, we found the entire apartment temperature pleasant.

Siggy was very helpful and met us at the apartment even though our flight was delayed until early morning. He gave us lots of useful tips. Had we not been exhausted from being up all night we would have asked him for even more!

I think the apartment was a great value because of its proximity to downtown and the grocery store, easy parking and the super comfortable beds!
