The Old Charm apartment was a lovely place to stop. Six of us shared a three bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and kitchen/diner area. The location is well placed for shops, trips and getting to see Reykjavik and the local sights. The apartment was warm and welcoming. Steinunn was very helpful before and during our stay offering plenty of advice. We plan to go back and will look to use Old Charm again.

When we arrived, we were a little worried . It does look like a dump, next to a building site and the only think missing was graffiti. However never judge a book by it's cover, inside is warm, clean and perfect. I am not sure why the owners do not upgrade the place a little, a bit of paint outside and maybe some flowers go a long way. Perhaps lack of commercial know how, that said it is very central for access to the city with crawling distance and perfect in every sense apart from the noise. Unfortunately due to local laws allowing a free for all through the night (bars do not close), we never slept that well. Also the shower, why do you have the lower window panels blanked off when the shower base is raised? Our entire family showered in full view of the apartments outside because the top panels are clear!!, we enjoyed the stay but we really need a good evening's sleep and its impossible here. For this reason only, we will not return.

Lovely downtown apartment in a traditional Icelandic house.
Ideal location for visiting Reykjavik. Comfortable beds and facilities. parking on site too. Courteous and helpful host.

The apartment was very clean and equipped with very blackout curtains (important during a summer stay in Iceland where it only gets dark for 3 hours...)
except on the window of the door of only one bedroom, which does not had no curtain.

Wow. Perfect location! (used bus stop#14-right by bakery)or Kex for pickups-kex has covering on rainy days) Best apt ever. 2 bedroom (full, single). Apt can fit 3 on pull out couch. Living room has door too so very private. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook and eat and drink. We couldn’t figure out how to use oven but we didn’t need it. Beds were very comfortable. Heating could be adjusted in every single room. Windows in every room. We didn’t use balcony but it had small table and 2 chairs. Blackout curtains were great but we always had windows open so light was coming in. Communication with apt host was very easy and she was very friendly. Only negative to apt was small shower. If you are a larger person you will not fit. Also water is warm but not really hot. Bathroom is great size. I would 100% be staying here during next visit. (copied my review hotels.com)

I stayed in the green house during quarantine, I was nervous about being in quarantine for so long (5-6days) but this apartment felt right at home! Tastefully renovated, nice balcony and everything you need. I also got a lot of help and very quick answers on email from the hosts. They helped me with guidance and as much as they could with everything I needed during quarantine, absolutely the best hosts I’ve ever been in contact with!! They and the beautiful apartment made the quarantine easy and I can absolutely recommend this place (even if you’re not in quarantine of course). Also, very close to both the ocean and the city. I will come back next time I’m in Reykjavík! / Madeleine

These apartments are in the perfect location for easy walk to harbour and bus stops for trips and to excellent bars, restaurants and shops. The apartment was spotless, had everything we needed and was very spacious. The owners gave us great info before arrival, checked in to make sure everything was good during our stay and helped with luggage storage on day of departure. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

This is a place that we will definitely return to next time we are in Reyjavik. Location is superb for exploring the city, 2 minutes from the main shopping atreet, the opera house, the harbor and the famous cathedral of Reykjavik.
House is nicely refurbished, has all necessary amenities

We came late in the afternoon, found two parking lots (one private for the house), Reykjavik center is all within walking distance. The house suffers slightly from street traffic noise. The major con is that there is only one bathroom for 6 people. The owners suggested that we take two apartments, but this was beyond our budget.

Beautiful stay in the Gray House apartment! This was a perfect place for traveling with my college aged kids. There is a small but functional kitchen, a small dining area and a small sitting area. But each of the 3 bedrooms are spacious and allow for some much appreciated personal space at the end of a long day. The bathroom is also spacious with a large heated towel rack and a balcony. There is parking out back, too. Would definitely stay here again.

Hello! Sorry, I just saw your question today. We rented a car so we had tons of flexibility while in Iceland. There are public buses that go to and from the Blue Lagoon. Ive heard they are easy and reliable.
