“Great Apartment - Would Recommend.”
Reviewed 28 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the start this was clearly to be a great experience. Communications were really quick and clear and the information provided by the owner was very helpful. The apartment itself is well decorated, well located and although there were only 2 of us it would certainly be suitable for 4 people. The apartment is well equipped and the bed comfortable. Someone mentioned a bakery across the road but that must have gone but as the apartment is centrally located there is a fab bakery just 5-10 mins walk away. The Bonus supermarket is very close as are restaurants and Reykjavik is a really safe, friendly place. We arrived at past midnight (and a day late) due to problems with our flight however the communications were excellent and we were still met at the apartment.

There is a swimming pool and hot pool literally just 2 mins walk up the road from the apartment which I visited a couple of times just to relax in the hotpool. It costs 620 IKr which is the equivalent of approx £3.50 and certainly worth the money. If you do visit then make sure that you shower, without costume, prior to entering the pool. Clearly you can put your costume on when showered and prior to the pool! This is really big thing in Iceland and everyone does it so dont worry - the ladies and mens changing & shower facilities are separate! Also dont worry about leaving your shoes outside the apartment door nor in the corridor at the swimming pool, this is also normal and, apart from being a good idea, no one will taken them!

A couple of places to eat ... Le Bistro in the main street, this is Icelanic & French - a very good menu, excellent food and a great ambiance. We had an evening meal here and then a Brunch on our last day. For a lunch type meal try Svarta Kaffi, again in the main street (walk down the road from the apartment, 2nd left then walk for 3 mins) and it is one floor up. This is soup in a roll - have a look at the reviews on Tripadvisor.

We, too, were a little concerned about the payment in advance (see review below) and like the review below we are so glad that we did rent this apartment. We were so pleased and comfortable - thank you.

Reykjavik is very user friendly and you can walk to most places, we certainly did. We also decided to use a Private Guide instead of the normal coach companies although we did use the Grey Line for our trip to the Blue Lagoon - ahhh bliss - and an absolute must. Whilst it is full of tourists and a little on the expensive side I doubt there is anything else like it and worth the money for the experience. In order to see some of Iceland we took 2 tours, combined with a Northern Lights tour, with Solstice Tours and would highly recommend this. I have also left a review on Tripadvisor.

The Icelandic people are freindly and all speak English so there is no problem with the language.

We had a really good trip which was certainly enhanced by the apartment.

Excellent apartment, excellent city/country. Perfect hub to experience all that Iceland has to offer. Very comfortable apartment, very stylish modern interior - would happily live there! The very friendly and helpful owner Susan has thought of absolutely everything you could ever need.
Was very hesitant to book due to the direct bank transfer form of booking/payment, there was no need - so glad we took the plunge and went for it. Great communication from a trustworthy owner!

“Can't say enough good things”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We really feel so happy to have found this place. The apartment was all brand new, super comfortable and spacious (we were 3 people sharing the space) and in a great location. Susan was so friendly, responsive and helpful. She even sent us a few page FAQ sheet about the apartment and surrounding neighborhood which was great! Anton was the one who met us with the keys (at 2am might I add bc our flight landed late)- he was sooo nice. The kitchen/dining area was spacious and made it easy for us to cook in the mornings and make dinner one night. The apt is a few min walk from the downtown area with all the shops and restaurants, 2 blocks up from the water and a 15 minute walk from the Whale Watching place we went to (highly recommend). Overall, we looked forward to ending and beginning our days in this apt and were sad to leave!

Quick note- the outside of the building and walk up to the second floor is pretty shabby and NOTHING like the apt itself :)

“Excellent apartment immaculately decorated in great location”

We visited Iceland for the first time in December. We chose the apartment on line and couldn't have made a better choice. The owner was extremely helpful in sharing her knowledge of Iceland and the apartment is a great place to explore Reykjavik from. Immaculately decorated and well equipped it was a fabulous place to relax after a day seeing the highlights before walking around the corner to choose a place to eat from the vast array of options.
There is a bonus supermarket not far and the bakery almost opposite is too close if you want to avoid gaining weight. The fresh pastries from here are too tempting for breakfast!
