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.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

March 2017 - we had a lovely stay in this apartment. Close enough to downtown to walk but not right on top of the noise and action. Very comfortable bed and well appointed and stocked kitchen. The owner is also very nice. We would rent this home again.

Perfection on Many Levels

  • 5 of 5

First, it must be noted that our host, Gudmundur, graciously met us at 5 a.m. at the hotel adjacent to the apartment. He helped my wife and I with our luggage and showed us the apartment and answered all of our questions.

The apartment was immaculate and very functional. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. The shower was fantastic as Gudmundur advised us to take long, hot showers to take advantage of Iceland's endless supply of hot water.

The temperature in the apartment was never an issue and we both slept very well in the comfortable bed.

The apartment's location was ideal. We were able to walk into the downtown sector in less than 15 minutes. The nearest market is about 10 minutes away.

A bit of advice...if you book any tours, arrange to be picked up at the Hotel Klettur which is less than 5 minutes from the apartment.

We would love to return to Iceland and stay at this apartment.

Excellent location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

For a quiet section on Laugevegur street, this property is ideal. Only 5 minutes from the main shopping district. Bonus Supermarket right next door which you will want to use since the food prices in Iceland are atrocious, almost comical @ $20 for a bowl of soup, or $8 for a cup of coffee. The apartment is very cozy, access to a parking spot in a heated garage complex. Thank you for your sincere hospitality. Much appreciated
