“Absolutely fabulous for our time in West Fjords”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We landed in Reykjavik, spent a night on the way up to the West Fjords and were delighted to reach Isafjordur. where Robert and Gurry's wonderful apartment and great hospitality made our first impressions of Iceland grand. The apartment is very comfortable for 2 couples and has everything you need to serve as a comfortable base from which to explore the West Fjords. Robert also gave us great tips for restaurants. However, as the apartment really have all you need, we only ate one meal out, opting to cook our other meals. Another tip- we don't consider ourselves alkies, but after a couple of days on the road and on vacation without a beer or glass of wine, we arrived wanting. The state liquor store was already closed but Robert mentioned that had we called ahead he would have gladly picked up a bottle for us . . .. so you know that is real hospitality. It's a great place amidst a great place.

“Wonderful accommodations!”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

By far the most enjoyable place we stayed during our Iceland trip. The owners, Robert and Gurry, are the nicest people. They made sure we knew where to find the local pub, bakery and grocery store, all within very short walking distance. The apartment (Mjallagarta 1), which is located right in the middle of town, is spacious, nicely decorated and super clean. Highly, highly recommended!

“Spacious, Clean & Great Location in Isafjordur”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Our family of three (parents & teenage son) stayed three nights at the GentleSpace Apartment on Mjallargata, one of a few different apartments owned by Robert and Gurry.

This particular location is a second-storey two-bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking the main street of Isafjordur (and the mountains in the distance). Even so, we found it be very quiet with little noise emanating from the street outside.

The apartment was clean and spacious...way more than enough room for the three of us. The rooms were all tastefully decorated in a modern style. Robert & Gurry met us at the apartment upon our arrival and gave us a quick rundown of the town & some nearby restaurants.

The location of the apartment can't be beat. It is within short walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants & all the shops of the town centre. Parking for the apartment is just on the street outside the building.

Other pluses are the fully equipped kitchen that we used for our breakfasts, a washer/dryer which came in quite handy, a nice large bathroom, and comfy beds. We hunkered down in the apartment on the last day of our stay when gale-force winds & rain decided to show up. The apartment was a warm & cozy place to be during that time.

All in all, an excellent choice in Isafjordur.

“A terrific experience”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I stayed in Gentle Space apartment in Mallargata from 17 -20 November and was blown away with the quality of the accommodation and the warm welcome from Robert and Gurry. The apartment has a very high spec finish with amazing attention to detail. Mary Berry would have been happy to stay there such was the range of utensils and other finishing touches ranging from paper kitchen towels to bars of chocolate! I was equally impressed with the eco friendly products in both kitchen and bathroom. While I'm more of a bookworm the facilities also included wifi and satellite TV. The location was perfect, in the centre of town and only yards away from a supermarket. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

“A great, big, well-equipped apartment in Isafjordur”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We met with the owners (Robert & Gurry) as we came. Pay attention that you will have to call them shortly before you arrive, as they are not living there (we stayed in their apartment in Tungata 20 - they have other apartments).
The owners were very nice and helpful - we got great recommendations for dining and shopping (where to buy fresh & dried fish - really worth to do it there!).
The apartment itself was very spacious, the kitchen well-equipped (we cooked some fish we bought locally and the kitchen had all the necessary stuff), the Wi-Fi very good and the living room was very nice to sit at. There's also a nice veranda (we actually got some sun there!).

The place is not in the city center, but in such a small city it doesn't matter (moreover, you can just go anywhere with the car as parking problems do not exist...).

All in all, great place to stay - we would recommend it without hesitation.
