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.
We found the apartment to be very spacious, clean and modern. Only negative is related to the location along a noisy road. Not ideal for a light sleepers. This is an efficient, straight forward, self-help operation. As we experienced in the rest of Iceland, accommodation prices are higher than expected.
