My 3 friends and I stayed at Room With a View, June 30 and July 12-16. We stayed in room 510 -- what a great apartment. We had just spent 12 days on a ship in tiny cabins, so this place was a palace in comparison! The bedroom had 2 twin beds. The living room had a comfortable leather couch and chair and was large with a huge wall of windows. We had a dining room and kitchen containing everything we needed. We even had a huge balcony with a great view of the harbor. The furnishings were all IKEA-esque. One person slept on a the couch, one on a cot, and 2 in the bedroom. It worked out great. The curtains on the windows were fairly thick and managed to block out much of the midnight sun. The windows must have been double-paned or reinforced -- we were on the street, but we never heard any street noise.
Arni, the owner, was wonderful. He really made us feel welcome and provided us with great touring tips and even made some arrangments for us. We felt he was really worried about us, which was nice (especially when we went traipsing around the country with a crappy map).
The apartments were in a great location - right in the center of everything. There were some fabulous bakeries just a short walk away. You did have to feed the parking meter between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., but usually we were on the road at that time. You could also park in the nearby residential area for free.
I would definitely stay here again.
