Jon's apartment was a pleasant surprise after a long day of travel. Small and cozy it had a lovely and comfortable bed and was very clean. The bathroom was the greatest surprise of all, since it is generally very hard to find higienic and clean bathrooms and toilets on airbnb. This one was spotless. The only thing I have to criticize was the strong cigarette smell when we entered the apartment. It was like if someone had smoked just a couple of minutes before we got there. But after opening the windows for a little while this problem was solved and we were able to enjoy our stay. Thank you!
We had a terrific time at Jon Benjamin's place in Reykavík!
The place was cozy, with a well-equipped kitchen and two twin beds. Also, the balcony had a great view on the courtyard behind the building.
While the bathroom is shared between the two guest apartments, it never was a problem. For much of our visit, the other place was unoccupied.
There're many bars and restaurants close by, as Reykjavík is a small but walkable city. We got along fine without renting a car. Also close by was the grocery store - which helped us save money as food and drink can be expensive in this country!
It's two blocks from the shore, so we spent a couple evenings walking along the sculpture and shore walk, which is really quite breathtaking.
Between the great location and comfortable apartment, we can't wait to come back and visit Iceland again!
We really enjoyEd our stay! The apartment was clean and spacious. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to check out downtown. Thank you!
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt in Reykjavik.
Die Wohnung ist geräumig und sauber und liegt sehr zentral. Von dort aus lässt sich alles leicht zu Fuß erreichen.
Ich würde definitiv noch einmal dort übernachten. :)
Great apartment in the centre of town. It was a very cosy stylish and quiet place to spend 5 nights. Thank you Jón for your hospitality too!
A great little place a block off the main street. Central, very cozy, bright, private, cheap, and with a balcony. Our apartment was on the 2nd floor, and the bathroom was shared with another unit on the floor. Public transit to and from was very convenient: we simply instructed bus drivers to drop off and pick us up at the Foss Hotel Baron that's a block down. The washing machine was a very convenient bonus as we were stopping over from Europe after a week's worth of dirty clothes. Jón Benjamín was a superb host. He maintained excellent communication, gave very detailed instructions, and was very accommodating with our check out time. Overall an excellent and very laid back stay and experience. Thanks!!
