This apartment was very spacious and extremely quiet--I know there were others staying in the building, but we never heard them. Check-in was very easy, even though you never interacted face-to-face with anyone. The emails I received prior to arrival explained everything very clearly. The location is very convenient and the kitchenette was well equipped. Bed was very comfortable with... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The building has a very fast internet router and 3 wireless access points. There should not be any problems with the internet connection. It seems the devices occasionally need rebooting and we count on our guests to use our 24/7 phone service to let us know... More

The apartment we rented was wonderful - spacious, tastefully decorated, and perfectly located within a 5-minute walk of the main pedestrian area in Reykjavik. The blackout curtains are excellent (very important for sleeping during the darkness-free summer months), the beds were comfy, and there was a nice, comfortable dining table that was big enough for all of us. We knew... More

We arrived in Reykjavik around 11:30pm and, by the time we got our rental car (DO NOT RENT WITH SADCARS) and got into the city, it was about 1:30am. We drove around for an HOUR trying to find this place! It didn't help that I thought we were staying at the Castle House Luxury Apartments. This place is NOT MARKED!!... More

Thank you for your review and for saying we are almost perfect. We are not happy with that though. We want to be perfect ! We send out emails with very clear information on the apartment number and location, I understand it can be confusing driving around a foreign city late at night but the building is clearly marked, both...

+ friendly, really well located, cheap for what you get, big - bathroom, especially shower very small.. a bit "special" to not seeing a staff in person the whole time, bc there is no reception, only contact via the phone to the room. that worked all really well though.

Central apartments of varying sizes comfortably furnished and well serviced. We found the booking process very straightforward and Freya sent us lots of local information to improve our stay. One big (and I would say the only) downer is having to pay the full amount upfront, with no refund available on date changes. We never met any staff during our... More

I traveled alone to Iceland last year and stayed here for several days. It was like my own little apartment! There was a kitchen, tv, desk, the bathroom was immaculate and modern, and it was very quiet and safe. The bed was pretty comfortable, too! I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. It really is in the... More

Lots of room to spread out. Quiet street with street parking, although parking had to be paid for during week. Very homey, kinda of like staying... More

I stayed here totally randomly. Not knowing what to expect. First off the location is excellent. Smaller buses come here, but it's fine. Close to all the fun stuff. Rooms were sooo clean. Well stocked, free things like bread, drinks daily. Amazing hotel staff. Really nice folks.

Paid approx 12000 krona ($120 CAD) per night. Stayed in unit 110 the first night, unit 90 the last night. Both are large, bright (despite 110 being a partial basement unit), and clean. Free wifi was a nice perk. Both had large kitchens with a fridge, stove, sink and instant coffee and tea. Both had large TVs in the unit,... More
