Some of the previous reviewers had bad experiences here, but we didn't. We had a second floor room which was quite comfortable for a family of four (two teens). Stayed for two nights and never met the owner or any other staff. Totally self-serve, which is fine. The location is perfect, walking distance from everything a tourist would want. Laudasvegur,...

I get the idea of low budget hotel/ hostel, but for me the price wasn't that low comparing to what we got. The room itself was ok, there was a TV and a fully equipped kitchenette (we were not using their glasses and mugs tho...too dirty, so we just picked up some plastic cups). The heater was on when we... More

The stay apartments work on a model of 'low touch' from the staff. The reception is unmanned with towels changed every other day. However it doesn't feel as though you're deserted - there are contact email and phone numbers in case of problems and issues are resolved quickly and without fuss. If you want an apartment that is good value... More

Great location very central - the apartment was I bit small for the 4 of us - it was 'OK' unless you need more space. The place was clean and Wifi was very fast, which is good. Go there if you want a 'no-frills' type of accommodation.

We booked the Grettisgata appartment (no.2) and it was nice, neat and in the centre of Reykjavik. It has two separate beds, a small kitchen and plenty of space for the luggage. We were very happy with it!

Originally booked at the Bolholt apartments, we trekked all the way over there only to find out we'd been moved to Grettisgata. An email would've been useful, it was a long walk from the bus station. At least we got a free taxi ride to Grettisgata. The room was pretty small, with a double bed, a small table, and a... More

Heating wasn't working! I was in room 301. There were two small heaters that basically didn't provide a lot of heat! Spent the first night very cold. The following day I mentioned the problem to the housekeeper. She said 'no one else has had a problem with it' but did let me swap a small heater for a large one... More

A couple of days before we arrived i received an email from the owner which included instructions on checking in. We were told the key code for the main door and was... More
