We had a very comfortable stay at the apartments. After a week of sharing a single room with our young son, it was lovely to have a living room again separate from the bedroom where we could enjoy some time together. We also used the kitchen, once to cook, and other times just for storing cold drinks and yogurts. There are many places to buy groceries in the vicinity. The apartment was well-located for visiting Reykjavik's highlights - including the National Museum, the Settlement Exhibition, Hallgrimskirkja, and the big shopping streets and tourist center of town. We also found it easy to get out and never faced any of the Reykjavik traffic.
I loved the heated floors in the bathroom. I couldn't figure out how not to flood the bathroom with water from the shower, but the heated floors dried it up quickly. The hotel was very cozy when it was stormy and cold outside.
It was very clean and all your needs were thought of, like a luggage rack, drying rack (important for swimsuits).
The only downside was the internet connection, which was no more than two bars most of the time, and dropped out frequently. I was unable to do any work remotely, unfortunately my boss asked me to do something while we were staying there and I was unable to make the connection strong enough to complete my work. Oh well - I was supposed to be on vacation anyway.
It's a bit confusing on how to get into your apartment. Another couple and I both got confused. You are supposed to buzz into the entry hallway, and pick up your keys there. However, you might not notice that your keys are there because they are in an envelope with your name. As our envelopes were not in front, we didn't see our name and didn't realize that was our keys. On a windy day such as it was, we had trouble hearing the person through the intercom. This is not a negative but just to let people know when they come
