We rented an Studio apartment for 2 people. Iceland is really expensive, and these apartments were a good price (compared to others in the Old Town of Reykjavik). The apartment was very clean. It was great having a small kitchen, we saved a lot of money have most breakfast and a couple dinners at home. Really, I can't say enough... More

We booked this only the day before we were due to travel and I was very pleased with the accommodation we got for the price as Reykjavik accommodations can be quite pricey! Nice sized apartment only 2 mins walk away from the main shopping street, nice little kitchenette which was handy for breakfast etc to keep the costs down. Easy... More

We booked two rooms here in Feb 2014. It was easy to find, located a 2 min walk from the main high street in Reykjavik. There was parking on the street outside the apartment, but were were told there is free parking behind the building too. You access the building using codes that are emailed a couple of weeks before... More

This is an apartment NOT a full service hotel!!! If you are willing to take the extra time and double check contact info, entry codes and procedures before you leave home, this is an outstanding option!! It is centrally located close to shopping, restaurants, groceries, the old town, ocean, bus/tour depots and even the one of the largest geothermal swimming... More

Stayed here with my family, in total 4 people. Just a couple of streets from the main street. Our family studio very well fitted our needs. It was clean and spacious. The kitchenette had all necessities. We could see the water from the window, nice! Beds were comfortable enough, although a bit on the narrow side. Our boys, aged 8... More

You can park your car behind the apartment building. On street parking is sparse (a lot of vehicles already). We stayed one night and did not encounter any staff. Apartment was ready for us after 2pm and we followed the instructions provided on how to access the building and apartment. No issues. Apartment is simple. Small bathroom. I expected a... More

I specifically booked this apartment because of the location. When I arrived I found out that the place is fully booked and my apartment is 15min walk away! The flat was specious, but outdated. The bathroom was very dirty - I have never seen such a dirty bathroom! the shower hardly worked! The worst place I ever stayed. The pictures... More

These apartments are very well located, just a couple of minute walk from the main shopping road and easy to drive too off the main road. We didn't see the car park initially but there is enough street parking around so it wasn't a problem. The rooms are a very good size but are a bit tired. We stayed in... More

Ditto other's comments. Very good place to stay if you want a clean room and a handy place to prepare a meals. No services/front desk so don't expect any support or a classy reception.They aren't needed when you get home at midnight and are up again at 6:00.

We stayed here for 6 nights while visiting Reykjavik and the surrounding area. There was space for parking and easy access on foot to many of the interesting sights and shopping in the city. Reykjavik is an expensive city, the apartments help this with the ability to prepare some meals and avoid buying restaurant food for every meal, even the... More
