Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great stay at Rikke's apartment. Perfect for a couple or single traveler. The location was awesome; easy to walk to everything in the city center, but still on a quiet street. We rented a car for day trips outside the city and found parking to be very easy (for about a euro an hour during business hours which we were not around much for). Clean; efficient use of space and awesome communication.

  • Rikke was a great host and very accommodating. The apartment was walking distance to all attractions in town. It was perfect for my girlfriend and me. I highly recommend. Thanks!

  • This place is small but adequate and serves the purpose. The shower though needs maintenance, and the kitchen bin was dirty with old tomato and other stains at the bottom. I didn't realize how small the unit was until I got there, the entrance isn't very appealing. Off course I should have street viewed it before booking. For less than $10 more per night after taking admin fees into account, we could have stayed at Grettisborg apartments on the next block. For price and time of year, njalsgata 48 is ok but u can do much better for just a wee bit more!

    Response from Rikke:

    Thank you for your visit and thank you for your tip about the shower, I appreciate it. the house is in maintenance and some will be adapted later. Hope you got to enjoy the hot Icelandic water in the shower, best thing ever :)

  • We spent three nights at Rikke's studio apartment and it was perfect for the two of us. It's in a brilliant location just a few seconds walk to the main street with lots of great bars, shops and restaurants. Rikke is a great host, she is easy to get hold of and left us information on Reyjavik which was really useful. All in all, a great little spot to discover Iceland from!

  • Nice little apartment, close to the "main" shopping street in Reykjavik. A perfect place to stay, everything is very close. The apartment was clean and.

  • We had a lovely time in Iceland and Rikke was a great host. Excellent apartment for 2 people, quiet street, close to the center and perfectly priced. Rikke was super flexible with the organisation and left us an introduction on the table that contained all the necessary information to get things started [nearest supermarket, sightseeing, Internet etc.].

  • Rikke's apartment is just great. Perfect located - truly close to the main shopping streets in Reykjavik and the big church. Very comfortable and clean. Easily fit two friends with lots of luggage on a stopover for a few days. We had a great time!

  • This basement/lower ground flat is absolutely perfect for a couple or single traveller. The main high street is just a walk down the road, the beautiful Hallgrímskirkja church 5 minutes and the main bus station 12-15 minutes. In other words, perfect location with great transport links. The flat has everything you need, as well as a lovely black and white decor.

    Before our arrival, Rikke's communication was excellent and this carried on throughout our stay. A list of lesser known attractions, bars and coffee shops was also on the table upon our arrival at 2am.

    We would highly recommend both Rikke and her flat, and would definitely visit again.

  • Super appartement à deux rues de la rue principale de Reykjavik. L'appartement est très propre et dispose d'une connexion wifi. Excellent rapport qualité/prix. À refaire !

    February 2014
  • L'appartement est très bien placé.
    C'est bien plus petit que ça en l'air, mais suffisant pour deux pour dormir.
    Un petit coup de neuf serait le bienvenu dans la salle de bain...
