We've just returned from a five night stay at the Bolholt Apartments and already know we'll return. We had room 1, and while it didn't have the best view available, it was scrupulously clean, spacious, quiet and was both comfortable and well-equipped. The staff were unobtrusive (we prefer that), yet that didn't mean they did nothing as it was apparent they did a good job. Checking in was very easy, the email received before we travelled had all the information we needed, so all we had to do was key in the provided door code and pick up our key from the reception desk. The apartments are a bit of a walk into town, but it's not a bad walk and only takes around fifteen minutes. We'd hired a car for our stay however, our intention being to tour the major scenic attractions (and they are truly fantastic), so with safe, free parking right outside the Bolholt and quick, easy routes out of Reyjavik the apartments proved to be perfectly situated. Naturally before we'd left for Iceland we'd done some research into our itinerary, and while this paid off, we found that we could easily have done it during our stay through using a combination of the excellent wi-fi signal and the tour brochures available at reception. As for traveller tips: 1) the nearest local supermarket is only about three hundred metres away (turn left as you exit the Bolholt, then it's on a road to the right across the dual carriageway), is reasonably well stocked and is open until late every day. 2) Do check out the prices of the tour services and the attractions you wish to visit before you travel - we did this and found that the combined costs for the two of us made it more economical to hire a car, the obvious benefits being that we had more time at the locations, had more route flexibility and weren't tied to any schedule. 3) Lastly, don't be put off by the sulphur smell of the water from the tap, you do get used to it.
