Excellent 5 night stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights in late December 2016. The apartment is very well situated, only a brief walk along the Laugevegur to the center of Reykjavik where all the restaurants and shops are located. We appreciated this spacious apartment after having stayed in hotel rooms for most of the trip - it was good to have the well-equipped kitchen and the laundry room downstairs.

Communication with Gudmundur in the leadup to the trip was very good and he was always responsive to our questions. His daughter arranged to meet with us near the apartment when we arrived from the airport and gave us a very comprehensive overview of how everything worked. We had a rental car for the trip, so the parking spot in the garage of the building was much appreciated.

In addition to the main shopping district a short walk away, there are several small restaurants very close to the apartment, including a Thai place that we enjoyed. We can highly recommend Gudmundur's apartment.

Great apartment in a central location

  • 4 of 5

Has all the amenities you could need for a few days in Reykjavik. Big enough so that you don't feel crowded. Night traffic can be a bit bothersome.

Ideal Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment had everything I needed for my stay in Reykjavik. It was a five minute walk to the pick up and drop off points for the tours I did. One grocery store was around the corner and the other was a ten minute walk. To get to the sea side was just down the hill about fifteen minutes and even less than that to get to the shopping street. The apartment was very clean and very comfortable and it was well stocked. Thank you for opening up your home and giving me the opportunity to call it mine for nine days.

Spacious Apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was clean and spacious. Lots of room to spread out. We especially liked the large dining table.....good for laying out maps and planning day trips. The apartment was well stocked with laundry and cleaning supplies. The host, Gudmundur, was very gracious. He answered all correspondence promptly and spent time explaining details of the apartment. We called him when we were at the edge of Reykavik and he met us at the apartment. We appreciated the designated parking place in the garage...which was easy to access. The bedroom is on the street side and it was noisy so we used ear plugs. The kitchen and bathroom could use some updating, but were still very functional. It was a nice place to stay.

The perfect apartment for a stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a wonderful stay in Gudmundur's apartment. It was clean, spacious, and well appointed, and was the perfect base from which to explore Reykjavik and the surrounding area. Two grocery stores were nearby, and the city center was a ten-minute walk away. There was a city bus stop across the street, and around the corner was the Hotel Klettur, for those using the airport bus or needing tour pick-ups. In an expensive city like Reykjavik, renting an apartment was certainly the way to go. We would highly recommend Gudmundur's apartment.

Perfect location, apartment, and host!

  • 5 of 5

Our host met us and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment and building. The apartment had everything we needed, and it was perfect for our group of four. The location is conveniently located near many dining and shopping choices. I highly recommend his apartment.
