We had a great stay at the three bedroom apartment. The apartment is less than a ten minute walk (that would be a leisurely walk, if you're a brisk walker you can make it in less i am sure) from the heart of the city where all the cafes, restaurants and bars are. The apartment was a a great size for our group of 5. Each room had a queen size bed or two twins pushed together which we found was common in Iceland. The rooms had great warm hotel style blankets, be were comfortable and were the pillows. Small closet to hang up your things. The apartment had one full bath and a half bath so it was nice for the ladies to use to the full bath and the men to use the half bath. Good Wifi connection which is important. They had a couple networks so if one was not as strong in your room you could connect to another which was helpful. The women working in the reception area was helpful. She gave us a map, marked off where the main road to all the action was, where the nearest stores/supermarkets are to get supplies. There are lockers where your luggage can be stored if you arrive early or can't do late check out. Also another thing I haven't seen before but is so useful, was we received the code to a very small lock box to lock our apartment key. So before we went out at night we locked the key in our lockbox in the foyer of the building (note, building itself is locked with automatic doors and you are given the pass code to open said automatic doors to enter the building). This way if we split up or someone people wanted another drink and others didn't the group could come and go as needed without having to stick together as all you had to do was punch in the code to get into the building and unlock your lock box to get the key :-) overall we had a great stay and would stay again if in Iceland.

My husband and I stayed in a studio apartment on the first floor for five nights. They offered early check-in, which was much appreciated when we arrived downtown at 8:30am very jetlagged! They also accepted USD.

The owner was at the front desk most mornings/evenings, very friendly, and very helpful! They provide detailed info ahead of time on how to check in if no one is at the desk. There is tourist information in the lobby, and a detailed book for guests in each room with hotel and city information.

The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. I have seen some reviews that said pans were dirty and I guess a few of ours had some smudges, but nothing I wouldn't expect from used items - I gave them a quick rinse and got to cooking! Other residents had even left oil, salt, and cereal in the cabinets. The room was fairly small, but there was great storage space for putting away our clothes and bags to clear up some space on the ground. The shower was small - but I've seen much smaller in Europe! Also, they really know how to do room-darkening curtains in Iceland.

The location is fantastic - just enough off the main road/city center to not have too much traffic, but a quick walk anywhere you want to go (we went all over the city by foot in February!).

There was some noise from the outside and other guests, but there was a curfew for noise, so it didn't interrupt sleeping and it didn't bother me during the day.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, street side, and although we heard cars go by, it was not disruptive! So...

I recently stayed in one of the smaller apartments for 5 days with my girlfriend. We were very happy with our stay. Nice and clean with fresh towels, fully equiped kitchen, centrally played location in close vicinity to the shoppingstreets and main bus-station. Also our host was very welcoming and helpful with information as well as booking, and general tourist-help. We warmly recommend downtown Reykjavik apartments for all who are planning to visit the beautiful capital of Reykjavik.

My friend and I stayed in Downtown Reykjavik Apartments in January 2014.
Apartment Location is 5-10 minutes of Helmmur Bus Station.
Our Host, Thora was a gracious and helpful lady who assisted us in booking tours for Reykavik Excursions and we were very grateful for her.

We would come back to stay when we visit again.

Thank you Thora!

Stayed in the penthouse apartment...a great size, very clean and fully equipped. Our only disappointment was the absence of a freezer for ice - shortly afterwards discovering an ice machine on the ground floor. Perfect!
Owner was very helpful and friendly.
Fantastic location...just a short walk away from bars, coffee houses and shops.

me and 3 friends shared an apartment for 8 nights. my 2 friends slept on the bed while my friend and i slept on the sofa/bed which also converts into a dining table. during our stay we never used it as dinner table since we made do with what we had... eating on the beds :) Ours was a very comfortable bed and well sized shower/toilet. the area for food preparation is very adequate. TV is very useful... should have taken an HDMI cable with me... could have used it to watch movies off my laptop as well...

location is amazing. just 2 mins off the main street, where a convenience store is located.
i would have liked to have better instructions on arrival, such as using the laundry area, where to leave the garbage bis etc... we saw the sign just before we checked out which was kind of late :)

Room Tip: we had the cheapest room in the basement but we did not encounter any noises or inconveniences.
