“great apartment in central Reykjavik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

we've just come back from a 3 night stay at Alfred's Apartments. The location is excellent - just off the main street that runs through the shopping area but far enough away from the bars and restaurants to be able to get a good night's sleep. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the old harbour. The apartment itself was great (we stayed in the standard room) - small but with everything we needed - kitchen utensils, microwave, fridge etc and the beds were comfy, although a double would be better than 2 singles. The only things that weren't included that might be useful were a hairdryer and iron. The place was really clean and the owner welcoming. We'd happily stay here next time we visit Iceland.

Stayed February 2012, traveled as a couple

This is a great place to stay in Reykjavik. It is 2 or 3 houses off the main shopping street, and just a 15 minute walk from the harbour. The apartment was not huge but was certainly big enough and had everything we needed. It was warm, clean, cosy and modern. I would recommend the courtyard apartments to any couple, and would certainly go there again. We had a lovely welcome and really enjoyed the stay. It is worth mentioning too that teh noise reported by a lot of travellers to Reykjavik is something that Alfred's Apartments seem to avoid by being just that little bot off the main street. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: I stayed in the courtyard apartments at the back and it was really quiet - an added bonus! It's...

My fiancée & I stayed 4 nights in mid September. It's a fantastic little place. The owner is very friendly, and the apartment was spotlessly clean.

We'd have liked a double bed, but 2 singles pushed together were adequate. The coffee machine & enough tea/coffee to last us our stay were a nice touch.

The Bonus Supermarket just round the corner is very well stocked with everyday staples, and the best restaurants & bars are just a 5 minute walk away. You can hear street noise from the rooms but it's not loud considering the location- we had no trouble sleeping.

We'd happily stay again.
