“Wonderful apartment, we'll stay longer next time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The only negative about this lovely apartment was that we arrived late at night and left early the next morning, which didn't give us much time to enjoy it!

Right at the top of a quiet building in Eiriksgata, very easy to reach (even in a hire car in a strange city, driving on the wrong side of the road!) from Keflavik, and yet very easy walking distance from the big cathedral and downtown Reykjavik, this lovely light, airy apartment is a real find. Very well equipped kitchen allowed us to whip up a quick late meal, and a comfortable bed gave us a good night's sleep. The bathroom was a little odd, with toilet and handbasin in one room, and a huge spa bath, with shower over it, elsewhere, which meant that one was trekking around the apartment, but not a problem if you're travelling just with your partner although the apartment would sleep a third person on a fold-out in the living room.

We arrived to find the door unlocked and a welcoming note; as we had absolutely no orientation (and no map!) we took the liberty of calling the phone number of the owner, who gave us directions for finding a food store so we could buy the makings of dinner.

In summary, a great place, with a perfect location for anything in Reykjavik.

200m from the cathedral, you can explore the whole town by foot from the apartment and are still located in a very calm area. We learnt from local friends that this is the "in" area for living in Reykiavik.
The rooms are big and have big windows, there is a modern kitchen and we felt at home right away. A pity we could only stay a night before starting our round trip trough iceland.
We will come back if we can ! :-)

We stayed two adults and three kids for two nights. I booked it thtough booking.com. Easy check-in, very friendly owners, fantastic location next to the Cathedral. Apartment is wonderful, spacious and clean. Only downside is that the price is a bit steep.

I cannot praise this place enough! Off the beaten track yet only 5 min from all the attractions and with free parking, surely it is the place to stay. It was Perfectly clean, the beds were super comfortable and both kitchen and bathroom were equipped to a very high standard. I LOVED the bathroom! The owner was also extremely polite and easy going. 10 out of 10!

Hansen Apartments are spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet and warm with lovely furnishings and all the equipment you need. The apartments are ideally situated about 10 minutes walk from the main area of the town. The excursions we did picked us up and dropped us back at the apartments - a great service. Mr T the owner was very welcoming and friendly and keen to help and advice us. A great stay - totally recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor apartment had great views across Reykjavik

If you want to stay somewhere that's not an hotel this is where you should stay. So nice and clean, all newly furnished with fully equipped kitchen and very spacious. 5-10 minutes walk to the main shopping street. Parking on the property. But Reykjavik can be cold, so bring warm indoor shoes or socks to keep you warm.
Hosts will help you with all your questions and they are very nice people. Higly recommended.

Room Tip: They have one floor with a bathtub. Good to have in the winter.

We stayed in this sunny, spacious, well appointed apartment in July 2012. Close to everything downtown. A peaceful place to stay and the apartment had all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. Mr T. kindly assisted with our travel queries and helped us immensely.
