The apartment was very spacious and very clean. Very nice bathroom. You get your own kitchen which is very convenient. Also, great location near the city center.

Our room overlooked the street and the only drawback is it can get noisy at night. In the summertime, Icelanders come out at night (since the sun sets so late) and party for hours. I pretty much gave up on trying to get to sleep at what we Americans would consider normal bedtime hours.

Overall, good experience and the owner is incredibly helpful at guiding you and offering advice on what to do in Iceland.

First a quick tip-- coffee in the bookstore next to apartment building is the cheapest around. Free refills.

Wonderful place. My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We were on a budget, and found these apartments to be the best deal around. A small kitchen let us store food for the nights we didn't go out (and where else in the world is lobster spread and caviar cheaper than a can of Pringles)? These are gorgeous apartments, ours was on the floor above the hottub, the design is very art deco and the bed is set in a niche so you can sleep during the night (the sun NEVER sets in June). Here are the pics: http://www.roomwithaview.is/photo7.html We used the hot tub twice, a nice treat.

Also, Arni is fantastic, but so is the rest of the staff. We asked about finding a laundromat and, instead, Siggy picked up our laundry and dropped it off, clean, hours later.

Location is perfect for Reykjavik nightlife/walking around, you can rent bikes a few blocks away and stumble home from a night of clubbing.

We will definitely go back.
