We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect - easy walk to the city center and church (Bus Stop 8), bus stop 2 is actually a bit closer. The apartment has everything you need. Great communication beforehand, and warmly welcomed upon arrival. We were actually lucky to see the northern lights from the balcony the night we arrived. The apartment is so light and open - large picture windows overlooking the city, and very comfortable bedding. I would definitely stay here again.
Tip: Any good traveler knows to not use the currency exchanges at the airport - I paid the owner directly in Euros, but neglected to convert currency beforehand, which added significant cost to the stay. Get your currency before you go from your local bank, or use ATM's once in country....my mistake, which I knew better.
Overall a great stay, and would highly recommend.
Location is great with a five minute walk to the church and ten ish to town and the harbour. Flat is large in size and we as a family of four had plenty of room. It is on he it'd floor which was hard on the legs after a day exploring Iceland! Communications were great and we paid directly to the owner on arrival. Parking right outside and even on a busy day we were only just round the corner. Would definitely recommend staying here as everything great.
This was an excellent apartment in central location with a great view and close to town (walking distance from local grocery and restaurants). We were comfortable and warm with plenty of room for a family of four. All necessary amenities were available and in working order.
Previous reviews have stated that tour pick up points included the local Holt Holel. This is no longer the case and pick up points are now from bus stops (Bus stop 2 is the closest to the apartment).
We would definitely stay here again if we are in Reykjavic.
We stayed at the "penthouse with a great view" for a week this March. Even before we arrived, our host contacted me and arranged for us to have the apartment from the moment we arrived in Reykjavik (8am on a windy Monday morning). The apartment is just as pictured- spacious,very clean and within easy walking distance of downtown Reykjavik. There is a local grocery close by, but we mainly ate out as everything was so close, and the host had basics already there including milk, tea, coffee and fruit - plenty of clean linens and towels also. Don't miss the amazing views from the tower of the Hallgrimskirkja close by. Highly recommend this apartment- I would definitely stay there if visiting Reykjavik again.
The apartment was just as described. Excellent location, close to everything plus great views. We will stay here the next time we visit Reykjavik and will tell our family and friends about it.
