On arrival we were speechless it was absolutley amazing, the decor was out of this world.

The beds were so pristine add the towels were so soft.

The apartment had everything we needed for our stay.

I would defiantly recommend a stay here.

All amenities are close by in walking distance,also added bonus every one speaks English ,and every one is very helpful .

We received exelent service from the owners,one day we were absolutely soaking within minutes of a phone call they've provided us with extra heating so very thoughtful.Defiently a 5star.

Perfect Pick for our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment showed in the pictures is not the exact apartment we stayed at - but another by the owner in the same building - and it was just as beautiful! We travelled to Iceland for 10 days for our honeymoon, and this was the perfect place for us to stay! It was conveniently located to everything we needed (ie. grocery store, restaurants, shopping, and more - and we walked most of the time), a 30 second walk to the Ocean, and quiet enough for sleeping! The loft was spotless, clean, and well stocked! The owner was very friendly and prompt in all communications. I would highly recommend this loft for anyone wanting a spacious, well kept place, to rest after a long day, or hang out during rainy days!

For the price of a hotel room, you can have this clean, spacious loft in Grandi by the Old Harbor. Nespresso maker starts your day, and then it keeps getting better.There are a dozen restaurants nearby, Kaffivaggin was our first stop, right on the harbor , with an ice cream from Valdis, which became a daily stop.. The area has that beginning of a trend feel and while safe is uncrowded. Downtown is 10 minute walk, Laugavegur , 20 . You can park right at the door, and the sea wall walking path is 50 yards away.

Hjordis is very helpful, and makes you feel like right at home. Nice touch is the no extra charges and yet the place is immaculate. Can't go wrong with this one and my thanks to Hjordis.

Beautiful loft ... excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented two of the lofts, which were in the same building. One for my husband and I and one loft for my sister and mother. Very roomy, airy, artistic and beautiful lofts! The location was ideal ... walking distance to everything: supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, Harpa, the harbor of course, shops, bars, etc etc etc. It was perfect! The Hop on-Hop off bus stop is only a block away. The lofts do not have a washer-dryer, which we would have preferred ... but there is a coin Laundromat in walking distance. I highly recommend these lofts to anyone visiting Reykjavik!! The owner is very helpful and very kind! Thank you Hjordis for everything!

Beautiful apartment , perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is warm, luxurious and truly beautiful and Hjordis, the owner, was charming, helpful and generous. It is an advantage that the apartment is not In the tourist area (but it is only 20 mins walk) but in a trendy harbourside area with cafes, restaurants and an ice cream parlour in the next street and two supermarkets next door. Plenty of free parking outside the door. It was perfect for our family.
