“Great Customer Service. Very cool apartments.”
Reviewed October 1, 2008

Kathy and Joskul (owners) were great. Very friendly and were very helpful when my flight arrived so early from the U.S. that I didn't really have anywhere to go. They were also a great resource on what to see/do/where to eat and go out. The tips they provided in the email were invaluable. Definitely buy some alcohol at the airport. Iceland is very expensive.

We stayed in Apartment K3 the first night and Apartment K7 the last two nights of our trip. Both apartments were very clean, modern, and full of cool amenities including wireless internet, internet on the 42" LCD TV in the living room, 40+ movies to watch on the hard drive of the PC attached to the LCD TV, and an iPod speaker system. The furniture was very modern (think higher end IKEA) and the artwork was very unique and well done. You will get a kick out of the Death Star lighthing above the kitchen table and the "woman's body" chair in the living room. The egg looking stool/ottomon was a little odd. The bedding in the bedrooms was very comfortable though the pull out couch in the living room was built more for asthetics. Both apartments were located near the end the main street. You have bars, shops, and restaurants right outside your door.

Great place. Great owners. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed for a week at Apartment K in apartment K7.

Accomodation was excellent and great value for money. The apartment was spacious, equipped with modern technology and in a convenient location on the main street. A lot of emphasis had been put on the design of the apartment giving it a very stylish look.

Jo and Cathy, the owners, were very friendly and helpful

Although we were situated on the main street it was still very quiet even at the weekend when Reykjavik comes alive with people partying throughout the night.

  • Liked — The fact it was self-catering
  • Disliked — With so much emphasis on design, the practical side of the accomodation suffered eg linen curtains letting the light in

Stayed at Apt K7 with our two daughters. It was very spacious and well appointed. It is right on the main shopping and club street and is a few blocks from the Bonus grocery store (which opens around noon so pick up breakfast food the night before).

I highly recommend it - we stayed at a guesthouse our first night (Sunna) and it was much smaller and didn't have the cool vibe that Apt K had. It even has a balcony for great people watching.

Apartment K is first class all the way. The Apartment we stayed at is located right on the main strip in Reykjavik. There was plenty of space, upgraded appliances, furniture, fixtures, Ipod dock, flat screens, heated floors, pretty much everything you could ask for. Plus, with the cost of food in Iceland the place saved us a ton of money because we were able to cook meals every day. The owners are great to deal with as well, and really know what they're doing when it comes to vacation rentals-

Great apartments; ours (K7, I think) was near the city center and well-furnished with mod Ikea-oid decor. Heated bathroom floor, full kitchen, comfortable bed with big comforter, ipod docking station, flat screen TV, and cell phone (for use with prepaid calling cards). Manager was friendly and knowledgable and picked us up at the bus station. Similar in price to hotels with a lot more flexibility. Perfect for our honeymoon!

We wound up at Apartment K due to an overbooking at another place and what a treat this was. After staying at various guesthouses in Reykjavik and elsewhere in the country, this was like hitting Shangri-la. And for the same price as those other guesthouses!!! The apartments (we stayed on 2 different occasions) were amazing, like a home away from home, in the heart of Reykjavik, just off of Laugarvegur.
On top of amazing accomodation, Kathy and Jökull are some of the friendliest people we encountered in Iceland (and so was Charlie their dog) and went out of their way to make sure our stay was one of the highlights of our trip. It was like we had been neighbours for years!
I would recommend to everyone to stay here, even if it does seem pricier than other places (although to be frank, it was well within the range of a lot of other places I had looked at), trust me it´s worth every Kronur and more! The location, the facilities, the owners, it all comes together. If you want to avoid the guessing game of what is it really going to be like, you won´t be disappointed with this accomodation.

  • Liked — The spaciousness of the apartments and the amazing decor and setting
  • Disliked — The difficulty in being able to book more nights.
