WOW!!!! This lovely, beautifully maintained and appointed apartment is conveniently located just ten walking minutes from the tourist area and downtown Reykjavik, Hallgrimmskirka, Hateigskirka, a Bonus grocery store, and anything else a traveler might desire!
A bus stops in front of the apartment, but we never used it because walking was so easy and close to everything. (The tours we took picked us up at the Best Western/Foss Hotel – Raudararstigur 37, an easy five-minute walk from the apartment, even in a blizzard.)
The on-site owners were wonderful; they shared their rolling pin for our laufebrot and even located a lovely Christmas tree for us, bought it and installed it in our apartment to make our Christmas celebration complete! There were five adults sharing the apartment and it was amazing - plenty of elbow room and space for our Christmas party, huge kitchen was great for five cooks a-cooking Christmas dinner, sleeping accommodations were perfect and there was neverending hot water in the shower. Amazingly, an underground hot water system kept the porch, steps and sidewalk in front of the apartment ice and snow free the whole time!
We were nice and warm, too, as we watched the snowstorms from the beautiful picture windows. The young women traveling with us even had some snow fun with the neighborhood children. On Christmas Day, we especially loved the church bells pealing nearby.
We definitely plan to return to wonderful Iceland (maybe permanently) and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Thank you, thank you, thank you! From the Five Island Travellers.
