The apartment is great. Private entrance, and steps away from the harbor. We had three people in there and we still had plenty of room. Steps away from the square and everything is central to what you need to see and where you need to be. Sevinn is fantastic and I will stay with him again in a heart beat.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for this wonderful review, we truly appreciate it. It always makes us feel warm inside when our guests appreciate what we have to offer. It's also great when we have guests for more than a few nights and we get the opportunity to get to know them a little bit better, their home country and background.

Let us know if/when you come back and we will do our best to assist you and of course accommodate you. It would be our pleasure.

Warm regards from Iceland,
Svenni and Stella

“Lovely apartment for convenience and comfort”

Cozy apartment was perfect. It was warm, comfortable and clean. We could cook each night, so we didn't have to dine out too much.
It was a two minute walk away from the centre, and a one minute walk from the library and the corner store that took all currency!
I would recommend this apartment for someone who was travelling with a spouse or family, it is perfectly situated, quiet and convenient. Our landlord was great, very helpful and kind.

Fantastic apartment in the heart of Reykjavik: The location is a two minute walk from the old harbor village (and its outstanding restaurants and cafes), as well as a five- to ten-minute walk to the center of town and all major attractions. The apartment is well appointed, comfortable, clean, and very affordable. The bed is comfortable; the shower is great. We also appreciated the filtered hot water in the apartment -- much gentler on the skin/hair than the standard Icelandic hot water. Sveinn, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating, and we felt very welcome. We will absolutely stay here again for our next trip to Iceland!

“Excellent location, but appartment is in a cave”

Appartment is perfectly located in the center of Reykjavik. Tenant is nice and helpful. However the appartment is a renovated cave, lacking light and view. But must admit the appartment is cozy. No wifi. FYI, cat(s) are living in the house, for those who might be allergic.
