“perfect location, great apartment”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a total of 8 people and the apartment was perfect. the location is right in the middle of everything, so can walk everywhere, BSI, shops, restaurants, Hallgrimskirkja. It is on the 3rd floor so above the street and quiet. it is clean and updated, has a small balcony off the back. wireless available. will definitely come back to apartment on next trip!

“Great location!”
Reviewed February 17, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Perfect location centered in the heart of the city. Very walkable to restaurants, clubs and attractions. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious. The only downside is that it's noisy late at night, so take your earplugs! It's also on the third floor and there is no elevator, so keep that in mind! We loved the apartment and it was perfect for our trip.

“Simply the best Location”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed in this rental with two friends at the end of September, the location is fantastic and central for all the great shops and restaurants in Reykjavík . The accommodation is very nicely finished and was lovely and warm on arrival with everything you need including washing machine . The rooms were great and we each had our own room so one bathroom between us was fine but I could see this being a problem if a lot of people stayed here. The only other little issue was the central location did mean it was difficult to sleep at the weekends due to noise from the bars and clubs but we dealt with this problem by getting up and jointing the fun but it could be an issue if you were travelling with a young family. We hired a car from the airport and this was a good choice, we travelled from the airport to reykjavik and stopped half way to enjoy the blue lagoon which is an amazing natural thermal spa, top tip here just get the basic package and save £30 by brining your own towel and flip flops spend the money you save on a nice meal in the spa. When we arrived at the apartment we found parking is free after 6pm in the evening till 9am in the morning and then its only a few pounds to pay. We also did the golden circle in the car and really enjoyed travelling at our own pace, the car was only £120 for three days including insurance and worked out much better value then booking coach trips and taxis. We also visited the Reykjavik thermal public pool which is brilliant and only about £3 to get in make sure you try the amazing hotdogs they are delicious and Iceland is famous for them. Top tip if you spend £20 or more,the shops will give you a claim form to get your tax back this does not include food , the tax is easy to claim back at the airport on the way home and is refunded straight back onto your card., also this is the first country I have visited and not changed any money into local currency we paid for everything on credit card even entrance to a toilet!!! Research for the best credit card rates we found COOP and Halifax were the best. All in all we loved Iceland and did not find it to expensive similar to UK prices really and a very special and fascinating place to visit. I intend to return next year it was that good a place for adventures and fun.

Thank you for this very informative review.
Glad you enjoyed the city and the nightlife. I agree the hot dogs are great : ) and nothing is better then relaxing in a swimming pool.

Best regards
