Recent Reykjavik reviews

  • Amazing location and fabulous host

    "I traveled to Reykjavik with my husband and two children (8 and 6) and this house could not have been more perfect. Don't let the solitude advertised in the listing fool you- this house is located smack in the middle between the harbor and the old city. We walked almost everywhere we wanted to go. The one place that was not walkable was the Laugardalslaug pool, but that was an easy bus trip on the very convenient city bus. We walked to the National Museum, the harbor museums, and two other municipal pools while being able to stay in a quiet and private location. The tourist information office right outside the door was really helpful, there is a convenience/grocery store around the block, and there is a hotdog stand in the adjacent square for an evening snack. While we were unable to any tours outside of Reykjavik due to the horrible weather during our stay, the busses (including the FlyBus for the airport) pick up around the block at the Centerhotel plaza. Elsa was an amazing host, and quickly answered all our questions before and during our stay. She has a very helpful Visitor's Guide and the house had basic food staples which was greatly appreciated. The house was cozy and warm, and the kitchen had all the utensils we needed to cook 1-2 meals a day. I would stay in the home again (as a couple or with children) again. My children slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room but given the location of the entyy door to the apartment, and the entry door of the building, I never worried about them leaving the apartment without me knowing it. (Sometimes in hotels we don't like to put them near the entry door for security reasons- my kids can be very curious!). This is a wonderful vacation spot. Clean, safe, accommodating, and accessible to all the wonderful things Reykjavik has to offer."

  • Wonderful place!

    "The apartment was perfect for us. Great location! Go have coffee at the Reykjavik Roasters, and some baked goods at Braud. They were also very responsive to questions I had regarding using the buses."

  • Luxurious, Comfy, Relaxing and very well located.

    "The house was as beautiful as we thought it would be, and it was very easy for us to find. The house is also close to the local supermarket and take 10 min to get to city center., which is very convenient. The house is very polished, and airy. There are so many areas to sit and relax. The hot tub is soothing and functions well. All of the rooms were very clean and well decorated. We were impressed by the items that were left for us in case we didn't bring them. We would highly recommend this house to anyone who wishes to have a good stay in Iceland."

  • Location, Ease and Comfort

    "Location: The apartment is two blocks up from the waterfront (great route for a walk/run) and two blocks down from a main restaurant/shopping street. Because it is so close some of the tourist transport options will pick you up there even though it is not one of the official hotel stops. Please verify as it is NOT guaranteed. Ease: I had absolutely no difficulty with any of the logistics of booking the property, accessing the property or with the closing of the reservation. Margret was very responsive, helpful and efficient. The property was easy to find on maps. Because we got out of the airport so quickly we arrived at the property 30 minutes early. We were able to contact Margret in route and we were met at the apartment 30 minutes early and were let in. I am so impressed at the flexibility and responsiveness! And it was nice to have someone personally orient us to the apartment even though there was nothing really complicated. Comfort: Everything is as described in the VRBO posting. We had four people, two in one room, one in the other room and one on the sofa bed; all of us slept well. The kitchen is fully equipped and with grocery stores a short walk away we were able to save a little money on food. There are several places to gather - the front room with the amazing view, the dining table or the TV room and all were accommodated the four of us with ease. I have stayed at several VRBO properties in different countries and I would rank this among the best. Sometimes I worry about not staying in a hotel when I am in a foreign country but Iceland itself, especially Reykjavik, is very gentle in that regard. And the apartment and quality of care provided by Margret gave me the same comfort of having hotel staff available."
