Reviewed August 3, 2011

We spent 4 days : Did the Golden Circle tour in a rented car, ate some lovely seafood in Reykjavik, walked up Eldfell in Heimaey and chilled out for a morning in the Blue Lagoon, Overall a very interesting trip. People were friendly and good humoured. Transport/ tourist infrastucture was excellant.
The appartment was comfortable. A bit small ( as a six person appartment , we were five) It would benefit from a microwave and some extra crockery and a good spring clean.. The hot tub/shower was not user friendly...it was tricky to get into, took an age to fill and only a hand held shower head
The rep was helpful.
Liked the location best and the loud revellers, street smokers from nearby bars least

We stayed here in May 2011 for 4 nights. The apartment inside is nice enough, although nothing special, and location is very good within easy walking distance of everything really. The major problem was that right next to the building there are some very loud large building works going on - when we were here they were breaking out the ground which is pretty much solid rock. I imagine the work will go on for quite a while yet. I appreciate this may not be apartments fault but it really spoilt it for us. With respect to the apartment it would have been nice if someone had turned up at least once in 4 days maybe to empty bins or do light cleaning but this didnt happen. Also when we arrived there is no actual access at the buiding or reception and we were wandering around in the rain for a while trying to find way in! Eventually someone appaered (by chance) from another apartment. We never did find out where we should have gone. Also because floors are wood there was a lot of noise from the apartment above. We were pretty glad to leave!

This apartment is a nice little gem smack in the center of Reykjavik.

Granted that Reykjavik isn't the largest city, but this apartment features everything 2 minutes away: tourist information, groceries (to take advantage of the kitchen), Laugavegur (the shopping street in Reykjavik).

The apartment is perfect for 2 people. It has a modern design, yet a friendly and cozy feeling (plenty of wood). Additionally, the owner is an artist so there's original art throughout the apartment. The kitchen and nice and functional and fine for cooking during vacation. The only amenity you might miss is a dish washer, but we took it as a team sport.

The owner is very helpful and very available. Once it took a second call, but we certainly got help we needed throughout the stay.

Just back from a wonderful visit to Iceland where we stayed at Home Apartments for 4 days. We loved the place
- because it was located very centrally in the heart of the city and yet only 2 min. from the ocean
- because of the extremely friendly and helpful owners
- because of the terrace-area with hammock, bench, barbarcue-possibility etc. in front of the house
- because of the large room with good facilities

We highly recommend this place!!

I thought that the Home Apartments were great. The beds were soooo comfy, we had a lovely kitchen, bathroom and spacious loune with a huge TV and we were right in the middle of town. The location couldn't have been better. There were 4 of us and we got upgraded to a bigger apartment for free!

The owner was lovely, really helpful in giving us advice on good local bars and restaurants.

I would highly recommend staying at Home Apartments.

Since I don't live in Reykjavik location is essential for me when I visit the city. That's where Home Apartments comes in, since it's location couldn't be better, at least not for the ones that prefer the city center.
The studios give you a home away from home feeling. It's not the typical hotel-hassle and you rarely meet or even notice the other guests.
Although Home doesn't offer breakfast, room service or carry a mini-bar, it's something I'm ready to forgive - who needs a beer for $10 from the mini-bar anyway? ;)

So without hesitation I recommend this place,
Lei5ure.

We arrived at Home to find that they had overbooked the apartments and that we could not stay there. We were taken round the corner (literally) to an apartment on Bankastraeti (owned by the same people as Home), and apart from the fact it was not quite finished, the apartment could not have been furnished to a higher standard. Whilst the owners were putting the finishing touches to the apartment, they treated us to a free meal at the bar/restaurant opposite and brought us a bottle of Moet later that evening, which was very nice of them. The apartment had a five-ring cooker, american-style fridge, huge tv, tempur mattress in the bedroom and very stylish furnishings and artworks. I thoroughly recommend staying there and both of us had a fantastic time.

As for Home, I recommend asking any taxi/bus driver to take you to 'government house' as it is very close to skolastraeti (skolastraeti is a very small one-way street and drivers simply do not know where it is even though it is right in the middle of town). Alternatively, ask for Bankastraeti as Skolastraeti leads off this main street. I also recommend the brand new 'restaurant O' (the old Siggi Hall) in the Hotel Odinsve. The food was amazing although not cheap by any means - 3 courses each with coffee and one bottle of Cloudy Bay came to £170.

I also thoroughly recommend the Gullfoss and Geysir tour run by Iceland Excursions - Reykjavik is fantastic but it's great to get out and see some of the natural sights Iceland is famous for.
