“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

This place is the best accomidation I´ve been in all my life. It´s quiet, close to everything (buses, restaurants, shops). The most important thing of all, there is no fuss! If you arrive late, or early, or need some advice, the hosts, Rósa (Rose) and Snæbjörn (Icebear) will take care of all of your needs.

Although I think the best quality of this place is the peace; You can sleep, there are no other guests waking you up with door slammings, maids doing work and so on! You are close to all the nightlife, but can´t hear any of it.

In one sentence; it´s home away from home :)

Our family of four stayed in Reykjavik for four days during a two week trip around Iceland and these apartments were the best of our stay! The apartment was nicely refurbished, clean, good sized (with a balcony), had fast Internet access and very lovely service. It is also a two mins walk from downtown Reykjavik. In all we had a very comfortable stay!

We were 4 adults in one appartement, wich had a dobble bed and a sleeping sofa. It worked great. It was clean and had a very modern look. I believe much of the furnishing and art is also for sale, it works kinda like a showroom. Lokated right above laugavegur wich is the main shopping street. Exellent.

Loved it. Great location. Very sleek modern apartments. Highly recommended.

The apartments are in a very quiet location. However sound proofing between apartments isn't great. But it wasn't a problem. Oh and they have standard freeview English tv channels.

Rosa and her husband were great and made some fantastic recommendations.

Loved Iceland.

Would definitely recommend.
