Great apartment, great owner

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had a great location, right behind the cathedral, which served as a great landmark as we were familiarizing ourselves with the city. It was very easy to park and was within a 5 min walk to all of the shops and restaurants. The apartment was very serviceable for our needs. The beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms were a bit small, and our luggage was large, so we used the dining room as a "staging area" for all of our luggage, etc. It worked out great, and kept the rest of the apt. tidy. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to carry your luggage up the stairs. The owner graciously helped us with this, and he also allowed us to check in early, which was much appreciated. My only complaints are that the hot water smells like sulfur in the shower and the front steps and walkway were very icy and slippery after it snowed. No one shoveled or put down any salt. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Comfortable, Well-Located

  • 4 of 5

I'd go back! It met our desire for spaciousness and functionality, plus it is stylish. The neighborhood was close enough to walk to downtown in 15 or so minutes, and two great bakeries are near as well. It's a pleasant area to walk in, and we never had trouble parking (free) on our street. We found that parking downtown was impossible, so the walkability was really important.

In the apt, some details got overlooked (eg, dish-washing liquid bottle empty, microwave less than clean). And the three flights of stairs should be noted.

For us, it worked, many more pluses and than minuses. The price was very fair, and reasonable for Rejkjavik.

great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was excellent and there was pretty much everything we needed. Siggi was really helpful: for some reason, VRBO took their cut from the payment but we were unable to process payment to the owner. Siggi was really understanding and very easy to contact.

Great location, quiet, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cosy, everything has been thought of to make our stay a pleasure. Just steps from the Hallgrimskirja, restaurants and attractions yet very quiet. Fully equipped kitchen, room to stretch out. Owner has thought of everything you need for a pleasant stay and was very responsive. We hope to return and stay again. Highly recommended!
