Great location, very clean and spacious, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Location is ideal, close to downtown shopping, restaurants, amenities, and bus stop for tour pickups. Walking distance to everything including the Harpa and waterfront. We were able to snap a few photos of the northern lights from the waterfront near the Harpa. The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed and very clean. Owner was very accommodating and we truly enjoyed our stay with a group of 5 adults. Would highly recommend.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have rented this apartment. I actually rented two of the units this time around. The apartments are spacious and clean and the location is perfect - directly in the city and walking distance to the shops, bars and restaurants. I'm sure I will be visiting again and renting one of these units.

Charming little apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this wonderful gem with our friends & it was absolutely perfect! Location was great! Within walking distance to everything we wanted to do in Reykjavik! The beds were super comfy, and the kitchen was well stocked, as we cooked in one night. Everything we needed was provided, would definitely recommend!

Great location and overall design

  • 5 of 5

Great spot. Close walking distance to all of the restaurants. It is right across the street from Stop 6 which is one of the stops for all of the tour buses so it made it easy. I would recommend this place to friends.

Great accommodations in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Burkni’s home couldn’t have a better location for enjoying Reykjavík! The closest amenities and sights were just minutes away on foot, and our farther treks (such as The Nordic House and The Marshall House) were less than 25 mins.

Burkni was a welcoming and incredibly accommodating host, who was very responsive to my inquiries and requests. The home was clean and pretty well-stocked. The beds were warm and very comfortable. The kitchen and living room were comfortably sized and cozy. The home was a great resting spot after long days of exploring!

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

The space is wonderful - having 2 toilets is a real luxury. Burkni is a wonderful host - most accommodating. I would absolutely stay here again - but I would bring earplugs or noise cancelling headphones because there is a techno club and rowdy parties that do flood the street on the weekend - if it weren't for that I would give 5 stars! The place is spacious and clean and central to everything especially the bus stops that pick up for tours. Very comfortable space. Thank-you Burkni and Iceland for your hospitality we will be back :)
