“Easy living in Reykjavik”
Reviewed March 30, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

We stayed at the "penthouse with a great view" for a week this March. Even before we arrived, our host contacted me and arranged for us to have the apartment from the moment we arrived in Reykjavik (8am on a windy Monday morning). The apartment is just as pictured- spacious,very clean and within easy walking distance of downtown Reykjavik. There is a local grocery close by, but we mainly ate out as everything was so close, and the host had basics already there including milk, tea, coffee and fruit - plenty of clean linens and towels also. Don't miss the amazing views from the tower of the Hallgrimskirkja close by. Highly recommend this apartment- I would definitely stay there if visiting Reykjavik again.

“Perfect Reykjavik apartment”

The apartment was just as described. Excellent location, close to everything plus great views. We will stay here the next time we visit Reykjavik and will tell our family and friends about it.

“What a View!”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The apartment was excellent, stayed with husband and two adult children and it was a good size, well laid out and well equipped. The owner was efficient in communicating with me and his wife was helpful when we checked in. It is on the third floor with no lift, so be prepared for the stairs with your cases. If you are booking tours check where the nearest pick up point is - several used Holt hotel down the road. Very convenient location and fantastic views. Pretty at night looking at all the lights across the city. Well heated with plenty of hot water - as you would expect in Iceland. Overall a great apartment and we had an enjoyable holiday with everything we needed close by.

“Perfect base for visiting Reykjavik and beyond”

The penthouse apartment is stylish (lovely artwork!), bright, spacious and well equipped. The very kind hosts live below so met us on site and were readily available if needed, but they left us in complete privacy. We are a couple with two adult daughters. Staying here allowed us to buy groceries (a 4 min walk to Bonus grocery store) and prepare meals for a more relaxing visit. We quickly felt very much at home! We also took great advantage of the washer/dryer in the bathroom which enabled our minimal packing and busy hiking itinerary. It was very convenient to walk everywhere we wanted to go in Reykjavik. We were also within an easy drive of countless activities outside the city. Free parking was available on the street outside the apartment. Worse case we had to park a few steps around the corner. We would definitely stay here again.

“Apartment with a view.”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

The location of this apartment is excellent. Obviously Reykjavik is a compact City, but everywhere is walkable from this apartment. Handy for the BSI bus terminal, no more than a leisurely ten minutes walk away. Walking to the city centre is only minutes away. Good supermarket also near by.

The views are amazing. Being on the top floor is a real plus. Views to three sides, four if you go on the balcony in the bedroom. Being there on the longest day meant we could even see the midnight sun from the apartment.

We managed to get checked in by 11.30am. After a very early start on a Sunday morning. We couldn't get through to the owners initially, when we called. We stopped for a drink at the airport, and then slowly got the bus to the terminal. We rang again from there and got through, they said 1 hour it would be ready. It's only a short walk from the terminal, so we sat there for half an hour and then went to the apartment. Mildred greeted us and showed us around and how things worked. The owners live below, but we didn't see them during our stay.

The apartment has everything you need. Two good bedrooms, a large living space with those amazing views. Good size kitchen/dining area and a nice bathroom. TV system and channels were ok, but the sound through the speakers would go off intermittently and you would have to turn it on again using the remote control. Located on the top floor of a three storey building. No lift, so you need to take the stairs. If you've been walking all day, save a bit of energy for the stairs, you'll need it. The only other criticism I would make is the apartment was a bit dusty, the bathroom floor could have done with a sweep and the oven grill and fridge was in need of a clean. It looked like the apartment hadn't been used for a while. The flat was cleaner when we left than when we arrived.

A great trip to Iceland, and staying at this apartment enhanced our visit. Would stay here again.

“Marvelous, Wonderful, Magical”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

My family of four - two adults, two teens - stayed in this spacious, light-filled, lovely apartment for a week in April. Marvelous space: complete with an eat-in kitchen, large bathroom, two good sized bedrooms, a small washer/dryer, two balconies, and tons of windows and light. Wonderful location: the church is a few blocks up the street as is the main shopping/dining district; the pond and beautiful park is a few blocks down the street. Both can be seen from the apartment's windows. Parking is easy. Area is quiet. Magical: while this may not apply to every visitor, we stood on our balcony and then laid in bed by the floor to ceiling windows watching the Northern Lights! Ragnar was response and accommodating. The apartment became an integrally positive part of our outstanding visit to Iceland.

“What more could you want?”
Reviewed April 7, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

If you plan to stay in Reykjavik then this is the perfect place. Views over the city, 5 minutes from the main shopping street and within walking distance of all the city centre attractions, and what an apartment it is.

There is loads of space, every amenity you could want, it's lovely and warm, two verandas for enjoying the views and really friendly owners. Great WIFI/TV/Stereo if you need your tech, just perfect for a city holiday.

We will be back.
