“Great location, perfect for our needs.”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Jon is great for communication. We were arriving very late at night and he had keys left in a lockbox for us.

The apartment was very clean and had all that was needed. A good quality sofa bed too. The real winner with this apartment is location, very central to main streets and easy walking distance to pubs, restaurants, shops etc. yet quiet too. A close by hotel can be used as a pick up stop for all tours too.

We had a small problem connecting to the Wi-fi, some quick advice from Jon to restart the router fixed that and he was more than willing to call round if need be. Very helpful owner.

Would definitely stay here again

“Nice apartment in a great location.”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment is in a good location.
The sleeping couch is fine.
The neighbours partying upstairs on Saturday night kept us awake, but that's not the apartment's fault.
Jon was very solicitous and accommodating.
He came by to meet us even though he didn't have to.

“Great location, good apartment.”
Reviewed August 21, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

First of all, I stayed in a hostel on the same street, too, & this was a much better deal!

This apartment is cute, cozy, and has new appliances, etc. We loved the tv b/c we don't have one at home.

It would be really helpful if the management would stock the kitchen cabinets with basics like coffee filters (we left 196 behind -- hope the next people get to use them), sugar, coffee & tea (we left some), soap/shampoo/conditioner. There was nothing at all there and so our first item of business was going to the store.

Also, the apartment looks completely remodeled except the shower, perhaps. There's no good ventilation on the bathroom as it is right in the middle of the apartment with no windows, so we found the shower quite moldy & stinking of mildew. I bleached it & we left the door open & fan n 100% of the time and so left it in great condition for next guests. Jon was really nice to quickly refund our cleaning fee for this.

We hope you enjoy your stay here -- we would love to go back!

Booking was very easy. Jon responded promptly to all our e-mails. Our flight was arriving early in the morning. While the usual check-in time is at 2pm, Jon was very gracious in letting us check-in early, at no extra charge. After a sleepless night on the plane, that was very considerate.
The apartment is quiet, but walking distance away from everything you would want to see. It was a great pleasure to be here during the annual culture night. If you can time your visit, do not miss this! It is the annual culture event when all museums stay open late, no tickets needed. There is a concert at every street corner and the night ends with great fireworks.
I would recommend this apartment to everyone coming to Iceland! Thank you Jon!

My boyfriend & I stayed in Jon's apartment while we were in Iceland in August, 2014. We arrived late, so Jon had planned ahead and had given us the lockbox code to access the keys to enter the apartment. The place was fantastic! The rooms were large - plenty of space, if not too much, for my boyfriend & me and the apartment was very clean and nicely put together. There were also fresh sheets in the cabinet and towels for us to use.

The location was fantastic and walking distance to everything you'd want to see in Reykjavik. We were able to walk around the entire city and enjoy the local restaurants, bars, nightlife, etc and then make our way home at whatever time we pleased.

There was a small mishap while we were there & the blinds came down. But I emailed Jon and he was extremely responsive and came by the very next day - after checking our availability - and fixing the blinds.

I'd definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Reykjavik and would stay here again when/if I"m back in town.

Thanks to Jon for helping make our stay in Iceland unforgettable!!

Liked best: The location was fantastic and the apartment was very nice overall
Liked least: We ran out of toilet paper and couldn't find replacement. That was the only complaint.

Booking was really simple with a response been sent promptly after we made the initial inquiry.

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Although we arrived very late in Reykjavik the owner, Jon, was enormously kind and waited up for us when our plane was delayed and showed us around the apartment at 1 am!

The apartment is very clean and modern with a bedroom, bathroom and open plan kitchen lounge area. The lounge is spacious and airy with an attractive wooden floor. The kitchen is well equipped, for simple meals, and we also made use of the washing machine over our week's stay.

The location is perfect for exploring central Reykjavik, and it's surrounds being close to the town centre and a short walk from the flybus station.

Altogether very happy with the apartment and would be pleased to stay there again!
