What a lovely place! When my non-Icelandic bus driver couldn't find Forsaela Apartments at first, Hlin stood in the middle of the road at 1:30 am to wave him down. The place is pretty and close to the middle of town, the breakfasts are great, the water is hot, but best of all Hlin is a fount of information, and... More

From the moment we arrived Hlin and Siggi made us feel at home in their house. They invited us in like we were special guests and part of their family. The house was clean, comfortable, cozy home to stay in. Hlin and Siggi helped us with organizing tours, saved us from missing one that forgot us, and had great recommendations... More

My husband and I stayed with Hiln and Siggi last week. Hiln and I had been in communication before we left the US for Reykjavik. She was most helpful not only in securing our accommodation, but is a wealth of information about travel in Iceland. As we approached Forsaela from the airport, Hiln was waiting at the curb to ensure... More

This was a charming, clean and comfirtamble guest house to stay in for a week in Reykjavik. Hlin and Siggi the owners could not have been more kind or helpful and went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. It really was as if we were their own personal guests in their house.

My niece and nephew (around 20 years old) and I stayed for three nights in the Forsaela self-catering Cottage. We received a very warm welcome from Hlin, the owner, even though she had had to wait up for us until our midnight arrival. Although self-catering, Hlin had gladly volunteered to stock the Cottage's fridge with basic breakfast items since we... More

Even though this apartment house is just one block off of the main street of Reykjavik, it is on a very quiet block where the noise of the city doesn't intrude. Conveniently located if you want to join in the nightlife, then quiet when you want to sleep -- perfect! The apartments are super cute. Compact European style where every... More

We stayed at a hotel during our first stay in Reykjavik but chose Forsaela apartments for the second stay and were delighted with our choice. The apartments (our family had one across the hall from my sister's family) were spotlessly clean, artfully decorated, and thoughtfully stocked with books, light blocking shades, kitchenware, grocery staples, and the beds - even the...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week when we visited Reykjavik in August. The owner Hlin was wonderful - really nice, helpful and accommodating.
