A Gem In The Heart of Reykjavik!
A Gem In The Heart of Reykjavik!
My wife, 9 year old son and I stayed at this place for 4 days in April 2012. The place was exactly what we were looking for. Highlights: - We stayed in room 6 which is the size of a large studio apt in NYC. The king sized bed was great, and all the amenities you need (TV with all the British channels BBC and ITV, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, towels, dishwashing liquid,etc.) are right there! - walking distance to everything you need to see and do in Reykjavik! - excellent customer service from the owners (see below) We arrived on Good Friday which we knew was a national holiday, in fact all of Easter Weekend is a holiday and almost everything shuts down in the country. Our flight arrived at 6:30 a.m. and we were at the apt by around 8 a.m. Turns out we had a bit of a miscommunication with the owners. They had asked about our date and time of arrival, but I think I neglected to look at what time check in was. Around 9:30 a.m. I called Snaebjorn (and probably woke him up) to inform him that we arrived. He clarified that check in isn't until 1 p.m. we asked for info about the closest hotel where they served breakfast and eventually wound up at the Hilton (excellent but very expensive breakfast by the way). We hung out in the lobby of Hilton until Snaebjorn texted us to say that they would see how quickly the place could be cleaned and perhaps we could check in by 12. He texted us to make sure we found a place to eat and also to say the place was ready earlier than expected. When we picked up our keys Rosa gave us tea, coffee and ramen noodles to make sure we had something before the grocery stores opened the next day. Our adventure continued a few days later when we went on a day trip to Vik and on the return trip realized I lost the keys to the apt. Another call and text to Snaebjorn and they met us with a spare set. It was Easter Sunday and I apologized profusely to disturbing them on a holiday. A few hours later, Snaebjorn texted me to say that they found the keys on the pavement. I must have dropped them in the morning. I highly recommend staying at the Grettisborg Apts during your visit to Reykjavik (just don't come during the Easter holidays or lose your keys!)

About the owner: The owners, Rósa and Snaebjorn are both product designers who live and work on the same grounds as the apartments. As their wokshop is right next door, it is always easy to contact them if anything is needed or you have a simple question that needs answereing. They designed the apartments themselves as well as some of the furniture, kitchens and artwork. They enjoy meeting people through their vacation rental and very much enjoy assisting with any travel plans, choice of restaurants or things to do.
Why the Owner Chose Reykjavik:
The apartment building is right next door to our home and work. It is a great place to live as everything we need and enjoy is literally just around the corner.

It is amazingly quiet considering it´s central location and our neighbours and community are very friendly.
