My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this apartment for one week in May of 2014. Reykjavik is a very easy city to get around in by foot. This apartment is a mere fifteen-minute walk from city center and a five-minute walk from two grocery stores and a bakery. It is situated in a quiet well-kept neighborhood and because it is not right downtown it is peaceful and quiet at night allowing for a restful evening after a day of adventure.
The pictures on the website present a fair representation of the apartment. It is well maintained and has a recently updated kitchen. A washer and dryer are available which allows for packing fewer clothes. Always a good thing!
The apartment is in the basement of the house, which might make you think it is small and dark which it definitely is not. There is plenty of light. We found the size quite comfortable for two but it does have 2 bedrooms so it can hold four.
We chose not to rent a car but walked everywhere in town and hired a guide to take us out for day trips in the countryside. This was our first visit to Iceland. It will not be our last. I would definitely rent this apartment again.

We loved our holiday in Iceland and having such comfortable accommodation played a big part in that. Our hosts were very friendly, helpful and everything was done in a relaxed and easy manner. Parking is easy and the apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood within an easy stroll to the centre of Reykjavik. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

This apartment is a lovely, cosy apartment in downtown Reykavik. Completely self contained and very tasteful- absolutely felt like home. Pall the owner was so friendly and helpful- he even looked up the weather for us daily and gave us fabulous recommendations on what to do and where to go around Reykavik and further afield. Our stay in Iceland was made perfect by Pall's advice and local knowledge. It was wonderful to meet such a lovely Icelandic family.
