Recently my family and I had the pleasure of spending a few weeks in Iceland. During this stay we had the privilege of staying at some amazing locations. The sights and sounds of the country were beautiful and our host just made that experience even better. We arrived to find our accommodations just as we expected and during our stay were provided with great recommendations for sights and places to eat by our host. I would highly recommend staying at Einar’s house again. We were a ten minute walk from everything and loved having breakfast from the bakery right across the street. Thank you for be such a great host and we could not ask for a better place to stay in Reykjavik.

Fun, quirky, and great location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our teenage son in November 2015 and loved it. The apartment itself is large, with lots of good amenities. It is quirky and has a unique style which may not be for everyone, but we liked the style and how it felt like we were using a friend's apartment in Rekyjavik very much.

As described, there is an alcove that functions as a bedroom, and additional beds in the main living/dining/kitchen area. It was plenty of space for us - a real treat compared to a cramped hotel room.

Be aware that there are steep stairs at the entry, and that off-street parking was not available as expected during our stay. A hire car isn't really needed, however, as the apartment is centrally located and we walked to many things during our stay. Shower is small but had endless very hot water. The dishwasher and washing machine are a real plus. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better value for money in the city. We would definitely look to stay here again on our next visit.

Good location

  • 3 of 5

Good location. Close to the main shopping streets and restaurants. Bathroom pictures are not representative of what we used as a bathroom. In fact, the bathroom pictured is not the same as the one available in the apartment. Also some of the windows in the living room where there were 2 beds didn't

have blinds. So if day light bothers you when you are trying to sleep it might be a problem. If you are more concerned about location tan comfort then, this apartment is ok.

First time in Iceland-Good Choice

  • 4 of 5

First time in Iceland- lots of snow!!! - present from children. First class apartment clean, comfortable,ideal to explore RKV on foot or get about Iceland . Privacy problems if 2 couples are staying but owner is addressing. Owner (Einer) extremely knowledgeable & helpful lots of tips on places to go & to eat. Food and drink expensive so buy drink at duty free.! Food excellent, so worth it, don't be afraid to ask for more! Check with owner (Einer) for directions before travel.E mail me for any further info.

Nice apartment, with some issues

  • 3 of 5

The apartment itself is very cute and is in a lovely part of town. I don't think it should be listed as a 2 bedroom property, however. It's really a one bedroom with 3 extra beds in the living room, which proved to be inconvenient for us (there were 4 adults travelling together, and it was a bit unfair for the 2 sleeping on lounges).

The owner had also mixed our dates up by a day, however he found us another apartment to stay in for that night, which was around the corner, it was just a bit of a pain having to take time out of our sight seeing schedule to move all our stuff.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for the inconvenience the dooble booking caused. In England this flat would be called a one bedroom apartment, however in Iceland this is a two bedroom flat. It consists of 2 rooms kitchen/dining area combined with one room and a bedroom.The bedroom has 2 beds put together. In Iceland we count all the rooms so a flat with 2 bedrooms and a living room is called 3 bedroom in Iceland. In view of the above review we have decided to draw a plan of the flat to put on the webside in order to avoid misunderstanding so guests can see in detail what they have ordered. So in some causes we can also rearrange beds. Sorry again for the troubles this caused Skatie and friends.
