    Our apartment (no 2) was much larger than we had expected and was equipped with everything we could need for our stay. The owners were helpful, friendly and very accommodating. About a 10 - 15 minute walk to the main street and the Harpa area.

    Fantastic location in easy walking distance to restaurants and points of interest. Room was quiet, clean & bright, and hosts were friendly. Reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend. Bonus - just a ten minute walk to the public pool.
