“perfect homebase in Reykjavik”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We booked through booking.com after reading reviews here and there. We liked everything about the place! The apartment was very spacious for a group of three friends and it was tastefully decorated. We had more than the facilities that we needed as our homebase in Iceland. We were happy to find a washing machine in our apartment. The location is very good because it's at the street towards the main commercial area of Laugavegur. Parking was also available but on a first come first served basis. It made our trip to Iceland comfortable.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Our one-bedroom apartment was a little gem, and just about big enough for two adults and 2 children. It's really nicely decorated in trendy greys and with a well-equipped kitchen and tiny but nice shower room with washing machine, should you need one. Best of all, it was fantastically well located at the end of Reykjavik's main drag, just ten minutes' walk from the action, and with free parking on the street (though it was rather noisy out there in the evening). We were very pleased with our choice and highly recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: Sleep in a room at the back if you're sensitive to noise.

Lovely 2BR apartment with a living room with small kitchen. Very clean, comfortable and nice. Spacious bathroom by Reykjavik standards. Well away from "party central" downtown, but easy walking to everything.

Friendly owners (Stella and Jonas) - just be sure to check where to meet them. Entrance is a little obscure the first time, but easy on you know the routine.

We would definitely stay here again.

We booked this 2-bedroom apartment for one night as we took a layover in Reykjavik on our way to Europe. We were so lucky! The apartment is very clean and modern, and is decorated well. It is located on the quiet end of the main street in Reykjavik - great location without the hustle and bustle of the city. It was within walking distance to most of the city sights. It's also a block away from the bus station, so we were able to take the bus when it rained. Jonas met us at the apartment and was extremely kind and helpful to us, and stored our luggage for us until the apartment was ready, as we arrived very early that morning. Beds were comfy and the bathroom was nice as well. Everything that we needed was provided including coffee and tea. The tour bus companies have a pick-up just half a block away, which made it very convenient to get to our Blue Lagoon tour the next morning. Most importantly the apartment was extremely reasonably priced for 4 people. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our stay here, and we would recommend this apartment to anyone!
