We stayed in the Cosy Central Apartment on Ranargata. It's advertised as 'small', but that's relative: as a family of four we had ample space. It is cosy, but it had everything we needed: a good kitchen (no microwave though), great shower, a small bedroom with nice and firm twin bed and a roomier living room with very comfy sofa... More

We visited Iceland for the first time in June for my father's birthday. I traveled with him, my aunt and my boyfriend. We were all accommodated in a wonderful apartment within walking distance to central Reykjavik. Clean and comfortable, ample space and walking distance to a bakery and market to fill our fridge. Also had a washer dryer in the... More

Stayed in a apartment about a 15 minute walk away from centre of town. Third floor was a bit of a hike with large suitcases but was worth it. Apartment was roomy, clean and warm. Had no problem with noise. Sjonni was very helpful when booking was made and sent us instructions on location and how to access the apartment.... More

The good: The location was great, right at the start of the main street into Reykjavik. The facilities of the apartment were good, but an oven would've been nice. Free Wifi was good. Soon was very helpful and understanding when directing us over the phone. The bad: The apartment was a little bit tired. A few things were broken on... More

excellent location at the centre of Reykjavik, still there are many parking space on the streets nearby. However, the room we stayed in is terribly maintained, there are many dirt marks on the white leather sofa that make us feel uncomfortable, so we have to cover them up with towels before sitting. and there are some weird and unpleasant smell...

We stayed in the budget apartment #4. The room is very, very small and not very well maintained. The kitchen and bathroom sinks were dirty and the shower drain was clogged and there was standing water on the floor so we were unable to use the shower our first night. When we called the owner in the morning he came... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in a studio apartment right in the heart of Reykjavic- location (during the quietness of the week) was superb. The apartment was clean and comfortable, with clean bedding and towels supplied. Kitchen utensils looked grubby (we cleaned them before we used anything) and were a mish-mash of items- I don't think you could have self... More

The apartment we had (1sr floor) was rather big especially compared with others on the same floor. The building is really centrally located, in fact it could not be more central than that. The downside of this is that it's very noisy in the night, with people partying in the street! This was very annoying, although it may be different... More

We stayed at Central Apartments last October. It wasn't super fancy, but it was clean and nice. The location was great. Almost everything in Reykjavik was within walking distance. I would highly recommend it. We met other travellers who paid more for their hotel and were further away from the centre of the city. People on the street below are... More

I stayed at the Central Apartments for five nights. My apartment was airy and spacious and quite nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen facilities were good. The bathroom in my apartment was a bit rundown and the lighting was really poor -- very, very dim. A cleaner came midway through my stay and gave the place... More
