Three people fit comfortably in apartment 90 during a five day stay. Reservations were made with ease online and detailed information was shared via email; this worked smoothly even though we arrived at 2:00 a.m. These apartments are in a superb location in mid-Reykjavik. Because they are one block into a residential neighborhood, the place is quiet and peaceful, with... More

Clean, comfortable, and modern my apartment was an oasis after a six day walking tour of southern Iceland. Equipped with amenities small and large a personal favorite was discovering the heated towel rack just before stepping into the shower! The rooms were truly lovely giving the impression of a home away from home rather than the generic decor of the... More

We were surprised by the amount of space in Apartment 100 for the two of us. Apart from the bedroom there was a large living/dining room and a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. It is very near the downtown area, but in a quiet street which is ideal as the town centre can be very noisy at night. Parking was... More

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
