Absolutely loved our stay here, we stayed for 4 nights. Our room was spacious, light and very modern. We had great views of fields and general surroundings, it was great to watch the world go by. Kitchen area was spotless and equipped with everything you need, decor was simple yet modern. Bed was super comfy! The living room area was the best thing about the apartment, a large sofa, table, TV, again, all very clean and tidy, and comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and clean. Around a 10-15 minute drive from Reykjavík, would 100% stay here again when visiting Iceland and would definitely recommend the Blue Mountain Apartments.
I love the location, convenience, and most of all the view from our apartment! The property managers are the best and the place is well furnished and clean. Free parking is available as well as common laundry. There is also a great deli across the parking lot. I will definitely go back!
Blue Mountain Apartments are located about a 15 minute drive outside of Reykjavik City Centre so a rental really is a must! All entrances are operated by personal codes which makes check in really easy and no need to worry about keys throughout your stay. The studio itself was well cleaned before arrival and had everything needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. From towels, spare pillows, extra blankets and kitchen accessories. Really well catered for. Plenty of storage space and the views you get from the top floors are stunning with lots of light coming through during the day. We had an unbelievable time in Iceland and Blue Mountain Apartments really helped make the trip. Home from home.
The first week of February of 2022 we hired an appartment from Blue Mountain Apartments in Kopavogur, a district of Reykjavik. At first glance the apartment looked fine. But we found out soon that there were only towels for one person. The next thing we noiticed was the weird odor that was in the space. When we wanted to cook, we could only find one pan and that's not enough to prepair a meal for two persons. We send an e-mail and they promised to bring the towels, the pan and an airspray the next morning. So they did. We sprayed and we sprayed in an attemp to get rid of the very unpleasnt smell. However, when we returned in the evening the bad odor wasn't gone. In fact it was worse than at the time we had left. At this moment the stench was like rotten fish. We decides to clean the refrigerator, because it seemed the smell came out from it. Next day we cleaned the fridge again, because the smell was still in the rooms. Because there were no other rooms available, we made plans to leave to find another hotel. But when we arrived the fourth night after a day out, we found in the same corridor a room where the door was wide open. Guests had probably left and seemed to have forgotten to shut the door. We exchanged our stinking fridge with the one in that room and it was an effective action, because the smell of rotten fish in our room was gone the same evening. Back in The Netherlands we tried to get a compensation from the organistation for our four lost days, but they came up with a ridiculous proposal that we of course declined. The only real positive thing to mention is the lovely view on the frozen lake and the far away misty snowy mountains...…
Light, comfortable, sparkling clean studio; very good location (close to the bakery, supermarket and pharmacy); beautiful view (we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights!😍); comfy beds; super friendly, helpful and welcoming staff; free parking; excellent value for money. Great healthy food restaurant is around the corner!🌱😋
. The fridge smells horribly of the meat of the former guests and brown dirt is on all levels. The bottom of the kettle is completely rusted. The dishes are dirty in the kitchen cupboard. There is a tray in the oven with rancid fat from other guests. There are food waste in the drawer of the cutlery. The kitchen is awful. And there are long hairs all over the sofa, oily finger prints at the Windows. Just Disgusting. 🤮
Own transport is essential as these apartments are in a semi-industrial area in the suburbs about 10-15 minutes away from the city centre of Reykjavik. The place was overbooked when we arrived and we had to spend some time waiting for an apartment to become available. It did not seem to match the photos that we had booked online. The place was decorated like show room for IKEA but was much smaller than expected. It was hard to find room to open our suitcases. We ended up using the dining table for surface storage. The bathroom had the strangest arrangement with a heated towel rail INSIDE the shower. There was no shelf space or storage space for toiletries. Only enough toiletries were supplied for one person and more towels were also needed. The kitchen was too tiny for cooking a meal but adequate for a short stay. The large bed and quality linen were comfortable. The apartments are surrounded by a network of arterial roads and some high rise buildings. There was a cafe across the car park but little else within walking distance. The views of the mountains are in the far distance (if it isn't raining). Good value by Icelandic standards but not 5 stars.…
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Mountain Apartments. Modern, stylish, clean and comfortable apartment with amazing views. Very friendly owner that was happy to help. We found it to be a very good base to get where we wanted to go. Highly recommend
We loved this apartment - top floor with a wonderful view of the snowy mountains. The bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment was very clean with all of the facilities you may need. It's around 10-15 drive into Reykavik and a perfect base for exploring the Golden Circle and beyond. Nice bathroom with a good shower as well as free parking. We stayed 4 nights in total and would definitely stay again, perfect views and location! they provide earplugs etc for light sleepers. The only thing that could be improved would be to maybe add a few extra pillows on the bed as the current pillows are extremely soft. Overall, a fabulous stay!
Great place to base your exploration of the south west of Iceland. About 2 km to the main ring road, just off the 413, super pizza place over the road, access to gym if too many pizzas consumed:-) Plenty of parking, on a bus route as well. About 35/40 mins into Reykjavik centre. The place itself was warm and cosy, well presented, contact numbers and live people now and then if your unsure of anything, weather for example! It's not the biggest apartment in the world, bed/sit/kitchen/diner and a well appointed bathroom with walk in shower but we were only using it as a base not moving in. We'd certainly stay here again.
